In early March, Heart vocalist Ann Wilson kicked off a 20-date tour across the U.S. beginning in Seattle. We recently caught her show at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on March 12th. The tour will wrap-up in Cranston, Rhode Island on April 7th.
Ann Wilson’s voice shines with a powerful vocal performance on Heart classics like “Barracuda,” “Alone,” “All I Want To Do Is Make Love To You” and a jazzed up version “Crazy On You”. Her band includes Heart drummer Denny Fongheiser, Craig Bartock on guitar and Andy Stoler on bass.
While Ann Wilson’s voice is in top form and her band is tight, it is puzzling to see them playing more covers than original material. But with her range, Wilson can pull off some of the great Rock classics including Led Zeppelin’s “Rock And Roll”, The Who “Reign O’er Me” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, “Don’t Give Up” by Peter Gabriel, “Your Move” by Yes and rockers by The Black Crowes, The Animals and Buffalo Springfield.
According to Ann Wilson, “People can expect the unexpected in 2017. A beautiful, classy set with an elegant, artistic production … The music will be a mix of songs that have powered my life; iconic soul stirring covers, songs from my years of solo work and the unforgettable songs of Heart.”
