Hollywood Bowl Recap

I hope you guys were there

I hope you guys were there

OCRegister: “Heart right there with greatest rock acts of generation at Hollywood Bowl” […] “Halfway through their 90-minute set, Heart made the case that they also have the best vocals in rock.” […] But ultimately, from her mesmerizing flute playing on “Dreamboat Annie,” to the show-stopping high notes of “Stairway to Heaven,” Ann Wilson’s star would shine the brightest.

You gotta check out the perfect wail! Nancy Wilson on mandolin sings beautiful lead on These Dreams followed by spine-tingling performance of Alone by lead vocalist Ann Wilson. Heart power ballads are inspired by the fine orchestral arrangements of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conduced by Thomas Wilkins in first of two concerts at the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA August 21, 2015.

TheLosAngelesBeat.com: If you really studied Page, you saw he held the guitar just a bit lower than the other players, he swung it around himself in a way that can’t be put into words. He had a swagger. Nancy Wilson has that swagger. She always did. […] As for the musicality, it’s great that time has done little to dampen the voices of Heart, in the way you would see this with their progenitors. Their voices sound as vibrant as ever, the keys are still the same and Heart still puts on a fun show. Good job ladies!

Many more vids right here!

Quote: Ann Wilson, lead singer of Heart, is about to release her first solo EP digitally on September 18, 2015 followed by a release in stores on October 9th. The EP titled The Ann Wilson Thing will be released by Rounder Records and will feature the tracks “Fool No More” and “For What It’s Worth.”
Source: http://www.showbizjunkies.com/music/ann-wilson-tour-dates/

‘Fool No More’ was written by Wilson and is described by her as “a heavy blues song about bad love and the fleeting of time” and ‘For What It’s Worth’ is described by Wilson as “a melding of some timeless lyrics with meat, hair and teeth.”

TODAY: www.theannwilsonthing.com

Today, Monday August 10th 2015, Ann Wilson is expected to launch the website of “The Ann Wilson Thing”. The exact time is unknown, so keep checking:

The Ann Wilson Thing Website
(edit 8/11/2015: IT HAS LAUNCHED!)

Besides the website, we may get more information about the EP that will be released before the first liveshow of “The Ann Wilson Thing”. Demand for the live shows is high as several have sold out and second shows are being added.

In the meantime “The Ann Wilson Thing” will be playing in Las Vegas this week under the obscure stagename “Heart”. The band will bring out Ann Wilson’s sister Nancy as a special guest. The setlist will be more rock than the usual blues and soul that “The Ann Wilson Thing” is famed for throughout the world.

Updated August 11th: That other band did change everything over at their website as well. Plus, on Facebook Ann has posted she and Craig are almost finished with the final mixes for the EP. The EP will get a physical release as well.

The new Heart-music.com features a bunch of new pix from Ann & special guest Nancy (all from the 2014 Norman Seeff shoot):

Finally in Focus!

A new picture of Ann & Nancy has popped up. It is from a well known shoot with Norman Seeff. The shoot has given us a limited amount of pictures and the one we’ve seen the most, has Ann & Nancy out of focus and their hands taking the spotlight (see for yourself further down in this post). This new one has that reversed:
