Heart returns to the road tonight after a three-year hiatus.
Ann and Nancy Wilson fell out in August 2016 when Ann's husband, Dean Wetter, assaulted Nancy's 16-year-old sons after they allegedly left the door to his RV open backstage at a show in Auburn, Washington. It took a while, but the sisters managed to patch things up.
Nancy Wilson talked abouther relationship with sister Ann:
"Things are going pretty good. I mean, we're more in touch than we've been, which is great, and, it's a good thing, you know. So, I feel like the humor is bubbling up again between us and time heals and things are good."
The Look Alive tour, which starts in Maryland Heights, Missouri, consists of 52 dates through October 13th in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Ann Wilson talked about fan anticipation for the Heart tour:
"That's gonna be one of the best things to me about doing this tour is that people want it so much. They're not just dragging their butts out to another, you know, package rock tour show and going, 'Yep, saw that.' Hopefully it'll be something that has value and substance."
Ann plans to do more than play Heart hits:
"We want to go through the best of all of Heart's catalog. Not just the hits. I mean I'd be lying if I told you we weren't gonna do something like 'Barracuda,' you know. But we are gonna not only do Heart songs from different eras, my dream is to have a short little part of the set that has Nancy's stuff from [her solo band] Roadcase Royale, and a short part that's from [my last solo album] Immortal for me, and then the rest is Heart."
Heart's openers will also be female-fronted: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Sheryl Crow will take turns as the main support, with the newly engaged Elle King as a special guest on most shows. Details at Heart-Music.com.
Heart will also be a part of our 2019 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in September.
