The classic rock band America will perform for the first time in Israel on October 8, at the Caesarea amphitheater.

Band members Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell are keeping their promise from 2014, when they initially planned a summer concert in Israel, but canceled due to the conflict in Gaza. They said then that they would reschedule their performance.

Promoter Shuki Weiss began selling tickets on Tuesday, giving priority to those who bought tickets for the concert four years ago. Tickets for the general public go on sale Wednesday.

The band is known for hits like “A Horse with No Name,” which earned a Grammy, as well as “Lonely People,” “Daisy Jane,” “Tin Man,” “Ventura Highway,” “Sister Golden Hair.”

The original band was made up of Bunnell, Beckley, and Dan Peek, three teenagers who were the sons of American army officers based in London at the time.

Peek left the band at the end of the 1970s, but Bunnell and Beckley have remained together every since.

Tickets for America will be available Wednesday at Eventim and Zappa.
