America, a light folk-rock band from London, England, boasted three members barely out of their teens when they became a musical sensation in the early 1970s, scoring numerous #1 hits and winning a Grammy for Best New Artist.  Some of America’s best known songs include “A Horse with No Name,” “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” “Sister Golden Hair,” and “You Can Do Magic.”

Christopher Cross was far and away the biggest new star of 1980.  His smoothly sophisticated ballads helped define adult contemporary radio.  Cross won five Grammy awards that same year, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year.  His well-recognized hits include “Ride Like the Wind,” “Never Be the Same,” “Say You’ll Be Mine,” “Think of Laura,” and “Arthur’s Theme,” along with his Grammy winning Song of the Year, “Sailing.”

We would recommend this to others, because the bands are very good. All though we had a problem, with having very loud people, in the row behind us , making it hard to hear Christpher Cross. We asked them to be quiet, but that just made it worse. They proceeded to keep talking the whole way through the concert, till towards the end of the concert we were splashed with water from behind. Nobody, addressed this, and we didn't feel comfortable telling an usher, since they were all rather elderly, and we didn't want to create a problem for them.

First part (Christopher Cross) wasn't very good. Seemed like he was too close to the microphone and I could only make out a few random syllables. He didn't put enough video on the screens. Wish they would wear the microphone headsets like the performers do in the AMT Christmas shows etc. Band was overpowering, saw the two females step up to the microphones but could bearly hear them sing. America was better. Do you turn the volume/speakers for the band up too high because most of the patrons at the oldies shows are over 50 and you assume they don't hear well. The people in the row behind us (we were row cc) were very loud, so the gentleman next to me asked them to be quiet and they ignored him, a short time after that our heads and shoulders were sprayed with some sort of liquid. Lost power a couple times from the storm. Exiting the parking lot was long and difficult. You need to have traffic controllers in the rear of the lot also.
