Ann Wilson of Heart will perform June 3 at The Pavilion at Concrete Street Amphitheater in Corpus Christi.
Ann Wilson of Heart is bringing the present, the past, and the timeless to fans with her show Saturday, June 3, at The Pavilion at Concrete Street Amphitheater in Corpus Christi.
Wilson, the singer of the band Heart, will perform Heart songs, songs from her solo projects, and songs that have influenced and inspired her throughout her life. Heart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
“Ann Wilson of Heart is what I have been preparing for all my life” Wilson said. “The time is right, and I’m ready.
"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. 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.”
As a songwriter and lyricist, Wilson wrote Heart's biggest hits, including “Crazy on You,” “Barracuda,” “Magic Man,” “Dog & Butterfly,” “Straight On” and more. Her voice is considered to be among the best ever, with its vast range, amazing power and sheer musicality. It has inspired legions of great singers, across every genre of music.
The musicians performing with Wilson include Craig Bartock on guitar (Heart member for a dozen years, who also performed in the Ann Wilson Thing for two years), Andy Stoller on bass (the Ann Wilson Thing member for two years) and Denny Fongheiser on drums and percussion (Heart member in the 1990s for two years).
The Ann Wilson Of Heart tour 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.
“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.”
