Where can I get tickets?

OK, I don't know if this is breaking news or if I'm the last person to know the obvious, but I ran across this tour date list for America -- yes, America -- and Anniston is on it.

Click here to read about it, or scroll below for the highlights.

Of course, I can't promise you this is true. It is on the Internet, you know.

America continues road work throughout 2008

Classic mellow-rockers America now have North American dates spread out through next fall.

America has made its way through the US, Canada and Australia since March, including a summer stint with fellow veteran act Chicago. The duo is supporting its January release, "Here & Now," a double-CD package that includes America's first new set of songs in more than 20 years alongside a live disc of classic hits.

The new material, produced by Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) and James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), sees Beckley and Bunnell collaborating with Ryan Adams, Ben Kweller, and members of My Morning Jacket, Nada Surf and Maplewood.

The live disc was recorded at XM Radio and features renditions of songs found on America's multiplatinum-selling greatest hits collection, "History."
