HEART’S
ANN AND NANCY WILSON TALK ABOUT THEIR
MASSIVE AND ACCLAIMED
“LOVE ALIVE” SUMMER AND FALL TOUR
 
“Together, Nancy and I slipped into a new groove that worked!”
–ANN WILSON
 
Coming back together this time felt not only sweet but more relevant than the past few tours.”
NANCY WILSON
 
HEARTANN and NANCY WILSON–triumphantly returned to the road this year for their first tour in more than three years and the trendsetting, multiple-platinum Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legends talk about it in a new Q&A (below, along with tour photos).
 
The “LOVE ALIVE” tour featured a stellar all-female line-up with Joan Jett & The Blackhearts joining the majority of shows. The tour line-up varied from date to date, with Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile as special guests and support from Elle King and Lucie Silvas.
 
The tour launched July 9 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO. While it was initially set for 40 dates, the tour was extended to include 52 performances that went through October 13 including a sold-out September 9 show at the iconic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and a stop at the iHeart Radio festival in Las Vegas on September 20. Along the way, the tour attracted packed audiences and earned wide critical acclaim.Armed with a musically diverse set list, ANN and NANCY were backed by Craig Bartock (guitar), Dan Walker (keyboards), Denny Fongheiser (drums and percussion), Andy Stoller (bass) and Ryan Waters (guitar).
 
In addition, HEART partnered with REVERB for the shows, to reduce the environmental footprint of the events while also engaging fans in local and national causes each night in the concourse. For more information, visit www.REVERB.org.
 
ANN AND NANCY WILSON
Q&A
(October 2019)
 
Q: Congrats on the massive “Love Alive” tour. HEART performed hits, deep album cuts and covers of songs that shaped HEART. Can you tell us how important the set list was for this tour?
 
ANN: “It was important that we played to our early stuff just as much as our radio hits. Songs like ‘Rockin Heaven Down,’ ‘Mistral Wind,’ ‘Love Alive,’ ‘Little Queen’ and ‘Dog and Butterfly’ were in balance with the radio hits like ‘Magic Man,’ ‘Crazy On You,’ ‘Barracuda,’ ‘These Dreams’ and ‘Alone.’ We did only a very few covers that spiced up the set and honored our solo sides: ‘Your Move’ by Yes, ‘The Boxer’ by Simon and Garfunkel and ‘Stairway to Heaven’ by Led Zeppelin. This mix was very important to show what this band can do now. I feel this was the best all the Heart songs have been played ever. They took on power, weight and meaning in 2019.”
 
NANCY: “The set list for this tour was the key to the tour. Fan favorites and new versions of the classics kept it fresh and surprising.”
 
Q: While you both have toured over the last few years on your own, what was it like coming back together for the HEART tour?
 
ANN: “For me it was a thrill to put my voice and soul to the Heart songs. The two years of solo work taught me things about life and singing I never knew before. I felt like I was coming at this tour very strong and fresh. Together, Nancy and I slipped into a new groove that worked!”
 
NANCY: “Coming back together this time felt not only sweet but more relevant than the past few tours. We had renewed inspiration to play together after the long absence and we both brought along some new inspirations from our solo ventures.”
 
Q: HEART notably took out all-female artists on the tour. What was the dynamic of a bunch of women out on the road…onstage + backstage?
 
ANN: “The dynamic of the ‘Love Alive’ tour both onstage and backstage was friendly, warm and fresh. All the artists liked each other and each other’s music and were grateful to be a part of it. It was an honor to work with Brandi Carlile, Elle King, Sheryl Crow, Joan Jett and Lucie Silvas, as well as the other openers that joined over the months. All involved were very happy to be there! There were parties, dinners and hang times. All the musicians mixed and mingled. It was an authentically inspirational cross pollination of ideas and personalities.”
 
NANCY: “Working with other great female artists was something we’d avoided in the past, so as to not appear too gender specific. But the timing for it couldn’t have been better and the energy was wonderful.”
 
Q: If you overheard one fan talking to another after leaving a HEART show from this tour, what would you like to hear them say about the gig?
 
ANN: “I’d like to hear them say they caught the magic.”
 
NANCY: “I really love how fans love the songs. It’s great to think that what the fans take away is to relive all their favorite moments and feel inspired.”
 
Q: Can you talk about what’s next for HEART?
 
ANN: “It’s too early to say for sure, but new music is rolling around inside my head…”
 
NANCY: “Because the tour was so fulfilling, as well as quite successful, it’s fun to start imagining what the next step could be. A new song or two would be a beautiful thing!”
 
Here are some media highlights about the tour:
 
“…The rock ‘n’ roll of Heart is still beating…performed with renewed vigor…the women sounded exceptionally great throughout.”
–Kevin C. Johnson, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH,
(Maryland Heights, MO), 7/10/19

 

“‘Ooh. Barra-cooo-da,’ wailed Ann Wilson, an upward inflection on that razor sharp ‘cooo‘ sticking like a switchblade on a sticky bar top. Meanwhile, her sister Nancy Wilson hammered that unmistakable galloping riff, with two other ace guitarists chugging along in unison like three well-oiled pistons powering Heart’s motoring classic, ‘Barracuda.’ As if closing this two-hour joy ride through the Northwest rock greats’ 40-plus-year career–with many scenic detours–with anything else were a serious option. The on-their-feet Tacoma Dome crowd erupted in appreciation after the final downhill churn…Ann Wilson’s voice is still in stunning form, her no-bull melisma and zero-to-60 highs impeccably sharp, but carrying an underlying resonance like a less shrill Robert Plant. As ’70s-esque red-and-blue lasers danced on the ceiling, the powerhouse vocalist hit another level during a chilling ‘Mistral Wind’–her unshakable belting filling every cranny of the arena, from the peak of the dome to the farthest bathroom stall…Heart’s decades-spanning career has sustained greater peaks and valleys than Ann Wilson’s darting vocal phrasing, making them one of rock’s great enduring acts. With the Wilson sisters back together again, that legacy remains intact.”
–Michael Rietmulder, SEATTLE TIMES,
(Tacoma, WA), 9/5/19
 
“…Power-ballad ‘Alone’ and the crowd-rousing ‘Barracuda’ capped off the night, confirmed what was already plainly obvious: any way you cut it, Heart still rocks. Hard.”
–T’Cha Dunlevy, MONTREAL GAZETTE (Montreal, Quebec), 7/17/19
 
“Ann still sounds amazing and Nancy still plays and sings as well as ever, and yes, it is still magic when these two side by side on stage. The band is already tight and the sisters seemed to pick up right where they left off. As this tour gains momentum, I’m confident it will only get better…This tour delivered on every level–production, sound, quality performance, it was all in place. I did not see or hear one single disappointed concertgoer on this night. The bottom line is that Heart still delivers an amazing rock-and-roll show well worth your time and I highly recommend seeing these two icons if you have the chance.”
–Keith Brake, THE TELEGRAPH (Maryland Heights, MO), 7/11/19
 
“…Ann remains a powerhouse vocalist live–one of rock’s all time great singers…”
–Jim Ryan, Forbes,
(Milwaukee, WI), 10/14/19
 
“A revitalized Heart wasted no time dropping fan favorites ‘Rockin’ Heaven Down’ and ‘Magic Man,’ the latter of which highlighted Nancy Wilson‘s sultry syncopated strums. Soon, “Straight On” represented the first ‘Dog & Butterfly‘ song of the night–the album’s title track and ‘Mistral Wind’ also made welcome appearances during the performance–providing each Wilson sister with a platform to showcase their distinct styles and the many ways they effortlessly bob and weave together. Nancy’s flower child energy, shrouded in a mysterious aura, juxtaposed Ann’s unflinching command of center stage, a sly smile fixed on her face each time she stepped towards the microphone.”
–Laurie Fanelli, EPONYMOUS REVIEW (Tinley Park, IL), 7/12/19

Here’s some critical feedback from the LOVE ALIVE tour:
 
“…The rock ‘n’ roll of Heart is still beating…performed with renewed vigor…the women sounded exceptionally great throughout.”
–Kevin C. Johnson, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH (Maryland Heights, MO), 7/10/19
 
“…Power-ballad ‘Alone’ and the crowd-rousing ‘Barracuda’ capped off the night, confirmed what was already plainly obvious: any way you cut it, Heart still rocks. Hard.”
–T’Cha Dunlevy, MONTREAL GAZETTE (Montreal, Quebec), 7/17/19
 
“The recently reunited Heart confidently re-claimed their throne in front of more than 20,000 fans on Sunday night at the Blossom Music Center in Akron, Ohio.”
–Matthew Wilkening, ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK (Cuyahoga Falls, OH), 8/9/19
 
“Heart…was in excellent form for their return to Darien Lake last Friday night…Ann Wilson‘s rock goddess pipes remain impressive…Her sister sang harmony throughout (along with the rest of the band), repeatedly nailing down the blended sound of their voices that’s essential to their musical signature. Nancy also sang lead and switched to mandolin for a run through 1985’s wistful ‘These Dreams.’ Overall, Heart still projects a powerful sound…the hiatus seems to have imbued the Wilson sisters with renewed sense of purpose.”
–Christopher Treacy, BUFFALO RISING (Darien, NY), 7/30/19
 
“Heart’s performance onstage was empowering and entertaining, leaving many fans with-pun intended-heavy hearts when the show ended.”
–Mary Galkowski, ST. LOUIS MAGAZINE (Maryland Heights, MO), 7/10/19
 
“The encore was one of the best I’ve seen in a while. ‘Barracuda’ rocked the roof off. But it was the band’s biggest hit, ‘Alone,’ that capped the night. The slowed-down version of this power ballad was something else. Ann’s stunning vocals are unmatched by anyone in the business. The heart and soul of the lyrics in this song were brought to surface. It was an amazing moment and something I can cross off my bucket list.”
–David T. Farr, STURGIS JOURNAL (Grand Rapids, MI), 7/20/19
 
“The rejuvenated Heart started with the surprise of “Rockin’ Heaven Down” for the first time in at least three decades, sounding in line with the group’s prime. That trend continued on the gasoline-doused “Magic Man,” along with spectacular versions of oldies as unrelated as Yes’ “Your Move,” Motown’s regularly shared “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” and Pink Floyd‘s “Comfortably Numb.”
–Andy Argyrakis, CHICAGO CONCERT REVIEWS (Tinley Park, IL), 7/11/19
 
“A revitalized Heart wasted no time dropping fan favorites ‘Rockin’ Heaven Down’ and ‘Magic Man,’ the latter of which highlighted Nancy Wilson‘s sultry syncopated strums. Soon, “Straight On” represented the first ‘Dog & Butterfly‘ song of the night–the album’s title track and ‘Mistral Wind’ also made welcome appearances during the performance–providing each Wilson sister with a platform to showcase their distinct styles and the many ways they effortlessly bob and weave together. Nancy’s flower child energy, shrouded in a mysterious aura, juxtaposed Ann’s unflinching command of center stage, a sly smile fixed on her face each time she stepped towards the microphone.”
–Laurie Fanelli, EPONYMOUS REVIEW(Tinley Park, IL), 7/12/19
 
“…they still sound every bit as good as they did back in the ’70s and ’80s. Actually, I’m convinced that they’re ageless rock goddesses who will always sound exactly the same and have all the energy they always have had-because their talent seems to keep them young no matter how much time goes by.”
–Angelina Singer, BOSTON SPORTS DESK(Mansfield, MA), 7/18/19
 
“Appearing onstage to the hard rock classic ‘Rockin’ Heaven Down,’ which quickly veered into their famously lusty ‘Magic Man,’ Ann Wilson sang with a thunderous voice that could’ve out-roared Indycar, which had happened throughout the weekend nearby. Over four decades her voice’s raunchy, raw force remains undiminished and chill-inducing. Guitarist and some-time vocalist Nancy’s presence was equally felt as she pounded on her guitar and swung her mass of blond, wavy hair around like flag.”
–Chaka V. Grier, NOW TORONTO (Toronto, ON), 7/15/19
 
“Ann still sounds amazing and Nancy still plays and sings as well as ever, and yes, it is still magic when these two side by side on stage. The band is already tight and the sisters seemed to pick up right where they left off. As this tour gains momentum, I’m confident it will only get better…This tour delivered on every level–production, sound, quality performance, it was all in place. I did not see or hear one single disappointed concertgoer on this night. The bottom line is that Heart still delivers an amazing rock-and-roll show well worth your time and I highly recommend seeing these two icons if you have the chance.”

About HEART:
When Ann and Nancy Wilson formed HEART, the idea of two women leading a rock band was still groundbreaking. From the moment 1976‘s Dreamboat Annie was released, they became stars. With hits like “Magic Man,” “Crazy On You,” “Barracuda,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” and “These Dreams,” the band became one of the biggest hit-makers in the seventies and eighties selling more than 35 million records. In 2012, their memoir Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll became a New York Times bestseller, and in 2013 the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
 
About JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS:
Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard- rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” Her independent record label, Blackheart Records, was founded in 1980 after she was rejected by no less than 23 labels. Blackheart is one of the longest running indie labels and continues to give voice to new bands. Jett has acted in movies and television, including 1987’s Light Of Day, and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, The Rocky Horror Show. She has appeared on such acclaimed television shows as Oprah (the last season) and Law and Order.
 
As a producer, she has overseen albums by Bikini Kill, Circus Lupus, as well as the Germs’ LA punk masterpiece, GI.
 
Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. A version of “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was reworked for NBC’s Sunday Night Football theme song, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night”, and was performed for 9 seasons by the likes of Pink, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood. Her music is heard in countless films and TV shows including Easy – A, Kick Ass, The Runaways, Shrek, Baby Mama, and many more.
 
Since co-founding the Runaways, the pioneering all-girl punk quintet, at age 15, Jett’s determination and drive have kept her in the public eye. Jett was able to see her story told in The Runaways, the film based on (lead singer of The Runaways) Cherie Currie’s book Neon Angel starring Kristen Stewart as Jett, and her fellow A-lister Dakota Fanning as Currie. Jett was close to the project: She served as an executive producer. Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, ‘Unvarnished,’ in 2013 and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans.
 
Joan Jett has spent her lifetime breaking barriers and challenging expectations – this is, after all, a woman who is both a spokesperson for PETA and a devoted supporter of the US Military. She’s fought hard for all of her historic accomplishments, yet she remains humble and appreciative.
 
“I’ve had a blessed career,” she says. “I consider myself so lucky to have been able to do things my own way.”
