I’ve been a fan of Heart for just about ever and have been kicking myself ever since I missed them on tour in Pittsburgh a number of years ago. The band broke up recently, so when I saw that Ann Wilson (the singer from Heart) was playing at The Palace Theatre, I decided to take the opportunity. The show was pretty good–she can still belt one out. The only disappointing thing was that she didn’t do a ton of Heart songs (only 1/4 of the set was comprised of those–and she also did two originals–but the rest was covers of classic rock songs). Still, it was a lot of fun and I’m glad I got to see her.
On a side note, The Palace Theatre is quickly becoming my favorite entertainment venue. It’s only an hour away and there are no traffic or parking issues to deal with. Plus, it’s small, so you can actually see what’s going on. Heck, we were home by 11 last night–not bad for a concert on a school night.
