Pepsi Center will be the site of a female rock trifecta the legendary rock band Heart arrives along with female rock pioneers Joan Jett and the Black Hearts and Elle King. Tickets can be bought for as little as $96. Nancy and Ann Wilson are reuniting for a summer tour, which kicks off on July 9 in St. Louis and ends Sept. 9 in Hollywood, California.
The trek includes stops in major cities including Chicago, Hartford, Cincinnati, Syracuse, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Nashville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Tampa, Atlanta, Birmingham, Houston, Dallas, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.
Some other familiar faces will join Heart on parts of the tour. Other shows will feature special guests Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile and Lucie Silvas.
The announcement follows what the band called a “temporary hiatus.” In 2016, Ann’s husband was arrested in Washington and accused of attacking Nancy’s teen boys.
“I could see it was time for Heart to have a break,” guitarist Nancy Wilson told Rolling Stone in a statement. “We’d been slogging through tour after tour fairly nonstop and were starting to burn out a little bit. Things had just reached a heavy climax. Working with my other new band Roadcase Royale was a lifesaver. Writing brand new songs playing shows and delivering a new album with them was the medicine my soul needed.”
Lead singer Ann Wilson told the pop culture magazine the sisters have stretched their wings since then, living, traveling and breathing.
“We come to this tour with fresh energy and oxygen,” she said.
Heart has bangers including “Alone,” “Barracuda,” “These Dreams,” “What About Love,” and “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You.” The rockers were nominated for Grammy awards four times between 1985 and 1990.
Heart rose to fame in the mid-1970s. Their music was influenced by hard rock, heavy metal and even folk music. The band’s popularity fell in the early 1980s before rocketing back to superstardom in 1985. Heart has sold more than 35 million records across the globe, including over 22.5 million in album sales in America.
