"Furious 7" is one wild ride.

If you like action films, the action is, true to the series' titles, fast and furious.

"Furious 7," generically named because it's the seventh in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, reunites the band of brothers and sisters, including Paul Walker, who died in a nonfilm-making related car crash before his scenes were completed for the seventh installment.

In scenes that weren't completed, the image of Paul Walker's head was, through the magic of computer-generated imagery, grafted onto the body of his brother.

America, the band which had the hits "Horse With No Name," "Ventura Highway" and "Tin Man," is returning to Penn's Peak. The band still consists of founding members Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell. This is their 45th anniversary of performing. America will be in concert at 8 p.m. July 2. Tickets are $37 and $42. This is one of two concerts announced this week for Penn's Peak. The other is Jam on the Mountain at 7 p.m. May 31. Tickets cost $14 in advance and $19 on the day of the show.
