“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,” says the esteemed and pioneering Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend who’s known for her force-of-nature vocals. “The stage is where I have always lived; where I've expressed my deepest emotions and supreme joys.” ANN continues: “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.”

What will fans experience at these shows? “People can expect the unexpected in 2017,” ANN says. “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.”

Musicians on board for the ANN WILSON OF HEART 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 1990’s for two years) from Los Angeles. The name for the upcoming tour, explains ANN, “is to give people a point of recognition; to help people understand who I am and where I came from.”

The ANN WILSON OF HEART dates follow the release of HEART’s critically acclaimed 2016 BEAUTIFUL BROKEN album and summer headlining tour with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Cheap Trick, along with HEART solo shows before and after. “Heart is always evolving, changing,” says ANN. “It is a living organism. Right now it’s in a cocoon of metamorphosis, and we will see what emerges when the time is right.”
