Heart’s Ann Wilson Announces Solo Tour Datesby Best Classic Bands Staff
Ann Wilson of Heart has announced a 20-date solo tour of the U.S. for March and April. Appropriately titled The Ann Wilson of Heart tour, it kicks off March 8 at the Moore Theatre in Wilson’s Seattle hometown before moving onto Los Angeles, Denver, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New Orleans, among other locations. Tickets will go on sale here beginning this Friday, January 13. (Tickets are also available here.) See the itinerary and view the trailer below.
“The stage is a magical place where I can be beautifully in and out of control, where I can build a fire and then jump into it,” said Wilson, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, in a press release. “The stage is where I have always lived; where I’ve expressed my deepest emotions and supreme joys. I suppose I am addicted to it. I’ve never been much good at talking, but I can sing, and when I sing I connect with people in a much deeper, higher way.”
Musicians on board for the tour include Craig Bartock on guitar (Heart member for a dozen years, who also performed in the Ann Wilson Thing for two years) from San Francisco; Andy Stoller on bass (the Ann Wilson Thing member for two years) from Seattle; Denny Fongheiser on drums and percussion (Heart member in the 1990s for two years) from Los Angeles.
The Ann Wilson dates follow the release of Heart’s critically acclaimed 2016 Beautiful Broken album.
