Ron Delsener Presents Air Supply & America at the North Fork Theatre at Westbury on Thursday, August 18 at 8 pm.
The year 2005 marks the 30 year anniversary of Air Supply, during which they have recorded over twenty albums, have played all over the world to hundreds of thousands of fans. During all of this time, Air Supply has been probing love’s many dimensions and touching hearts everywhere with their up beat rock love ballads. “All Out of Love”, “Lost in Love”, “Here I Am”, and “Sweet Dreams” are just a few of the many Top 5 hits the band has enjoyed. In 1976 their first Australian single, “Love and Other Bruises” hit No. 2 on the Rock and Roll charts, and their debut album turned gold in six weeks. In 1991 the band released their album “The Earth Is”, followed by “The Vanishing Race” in 1993. In 1997 they released “The Book of Love,” and in 2001 Air Supply released “Yours Truly.” In the past few years Air Supply has continued to produce releasing the highly popular “Ultimate Air Supply” in 2003, “Platinum and Gold Collection” in 2004, and this year’s “Love Songs” compilation. Celebrating 30 years, Air Supply is set to release the official LIVE CD and the official DVD “It Was 30 Years Ago Today” this summer. The acoustic DVD will follow soon after featuring Russell and Graham, (one guitar and two voices) live in the studio and filled with interviews and candid personal moments.
America gained success with their 1972 debut album and the hit single “A Horse With No Name.” Their soft rock sound was what the seventies were all about. Originally a trio formed by Americans Dan Peek and Gerry Beckley with Englishman Dewey Bunnell, America got it’s start in London in 1969. Dan Peek left the trio in 1976. They received a Grammy Award in 1972 for Best New Artist and Billboard honored them with a “Best Single Award”. Their singles include “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man,” “Sister Golden Hair,” “Lonely People,” and “You Can Do Magic.”
America established themselves as one of the most popular recording groups of the seventies and the vast energy of their live performances were captured on the album, “America In Concert.” In 2002 America released “The Grand Cayman Concert” which was followed by their holiday compilation “Holiday Harmony” in 2003. This year has been one of the busiest yet as far as album releases go, the band introduced four albums- “Hi-five America,” “Holiday,” “Hearts” as well as “Harbor.”
