Developing story: Las Vegas residency?

The Las Vegas Sun published a rumor today that Heart is supposed to take residency at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay after the succesful short run earlier this month. The Las Vegas Sun:

There also is gossip that as a result of the Carlos Santana extended engagement, House of Blues at Mandalay Bay is going to go the residency route rather than endless one-off shows. I’m hearing from reliable sources that rockers Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart will be the first act booked to partner on the calendar with Santana. One other major act will be announced early in the New Year. The recent concerts by Heart at HOB were such a success that it persuaded venue management and the ladies to sign on the residency dotted line.  Ann and Nancy, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year airing on HBO, have sold more than 35 million albums during their 35-year-plus career. Their current special “Home for the Holidays” with Sammy Hagar, Richard Marx and others is showing all month on AXS.

The above mentioned Santana will have residency in January and May 2015:

Get up close with Carlos Santana! House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino are proud to present An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live! See him live on January 21, 23-25, 28-31 and May 20 – 31.

The Heartlinker will keep checking The House of Blues!

Ann Wilson interviewed by UK website

Ann Wilson (2012)

Ann Wilson (2012)

Here are some interesting Ann Wilson quotes, taken from this lengthy interview with a website from Belfast, United Kingdom.

Professionally, I am really proud of what Nancy and I have been able to achieve and sustain over all these years. Anybody can make it and hang around for eighteen months or two years or something. In 2016 it will be our fortieth year, and just on the financial side we are making more money than we have ever made. We are still wide awake and trying to evolve. That makes me proud, because that means it is real. Personally? I am proud of my own personal ability to be open and to open my heart and be flexible. Not get shut down by the fears and rigours of life. Not to think “Oh this is too hard, I’m out. I don’t do that!” I can come back, I can be in it – and that’s what really makes me proud of myself.

[…]

Yeah, we want to make a new, well, we are actually beginning a new project now which is going to be an EP which is going to have a theme. It is going to be the sharpest, heaviest, and the most incredible four or five songs that we can produce, that we can come up with. Nancy and I are both really committed to that right now. We don’t think things too far in advance – we don’t think too far ahead. So we are in the moment.

[…]

(About Europe): Well, we are trying our best to get over there. To just get over there in this good and wonderful shape that we want to present it in is so expensive. We have to come up with the money somewhere so we can do it right. We don’t just want to go over there and put on some kind of sloppy show. It’s got to be good you know – and we will do it! We will do it.

Thanx to “The First Sisters of Rock and Roll Ann & Nancy Wilson” for the find.

Ann Wilson’s Zepp offer goes global

Ann & Nancy Wilson

Ann & Nancy Wilson

In this original article the following was said by Ann:

Jeb:  Hypothetically, if Plant said, “no” to a reunion and the band went on without him, would you audition for the gig?  

Ann: Well, would I have to audition?

Jeb: I don’t think you would. 

Ann: I don’t know.  Hypothetically, if they ever needed a lead singer and Heart was not active at the moment then, sure, I would.  I would go and play with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones any day of the week.

Jeb: Heart could open! 

Ann: [laughter] Yes!

This little snippet of the interview has caught the world’s imagination as it is being picked up all over the world:

Belgium: ANN WILSON AVEC LED ZEPPELIN?
Germany: Ann Wilson mit “Led Zeppelin” auf der Bühne?
United Kingdom: Ann Wilson: ‘I’d take on Robert Plant duties in Led Zep’
Brasil: Led Zeppelin: Ann Wilson adoraria substituir Robert Plant

Ann: 4 or 5 song EP

In this All Access Group podcast Ann (recorded December 1st 2014) talks about getting back in the studio, doing an EP length “very aimed” 4 or 5 song thing, where each song is just blow away. And there’s a theme. Ann & Nancy have a couple of songs already started up and are in the process of getting other people excited.

Also about the EP, but from Classic Rock Revisited: What is next?  Are you going to take some time off?

Ann: [laugher] surely you jest?  Down time?  No, we have the Christmas season off, and then in the New Year we are going to New Zealand and we have a year of touring ahead of us.  Nancy and I have begun work on a new EP of all new songs that we’re writing.  There is also a documentary in the works.  There is a lot of stuff coming up.
