Expect a Strange Euphoria When Heart Plays Artpark Tonight
Heart may be the most disrespected band in the world. I hope it’s not because the band is fronted by the Wilson Sisters, two women.
We’ve long known that women don’t get a fair shot in the workplace, earning far less than their male counterparts, but having seen Heart steal the show when they opened for Def Leppard last summer, it’s hard to believe these ladies still don’t sell out major arenas as headliners. Tonight they’ll be at Artpark, and it blows my mind that you can get tickets to see one of the most legendary rock bands of all time for just 10 bucks ($5 if you bought them in advance).
Last summer, we witnessed Ann Wilson rip through a set of Heart’s catalog and some classic covers with her voice still in perfect form. Nancy rocked, and the band showed that they still knew how to bring it. Don’t expect anything less tonight.
The band just released the box set Strange Euphoria that highlights their 40-year career, and if you weren’t a fan of the direction they took in the ’80s, you need to check out the acoustic version of “Never,” which they recorded with John Paul Jones (of Led Zeppelin) as a demo. Here’s hoping they pull out that version at Artpark.
