Nancy: 80 shows starting this Fall!

Bob and Nancy

Nancy was a guest on the TuneIn podcast with Bob Lefsetz very recently and after diving into Heart’s past and Heart’s current situation (which has been written out here), she talks about the plans for Roadcase Royale:

Bob: You’re going out on tour opening for Seger?

Nancy: Yeah, we started the tour opening for Seger a few months ago and we had to postpone it. […] So it’s not cancelled. We’re going back out in the Fall after Labor Day. Probably at least 80 dates [..] We don’t have the dates yet. The commitment is for everything they can get us and it’s all arenas.

Ann Wilson interviewed by KEXP

Ann Wilson

KEXP: What do you enjoy about playing live at places like the Emerald Queen Casino?

Ann: The main thing about playing a show, no matter where it is, is being with people. I don’t really qualify people in terms of the venue they’re inside of. When you’re up on stage, doing music, it’s really all about working and connecting with people. The rest of the world kind of goes away. So, I feel good about playing there. That particular show is going to be sold out and there’s going to be people I know there.

I’m doing two shows on the west coast partly because I’m going down to L.A. to start working on a new record. So I wanted to do a little playing with my band in the northwest before we break down and go to the studio. After the studio, we’re going into Paul Rogers mode. These are going to be the last two shows — in Tacoma and outside of Portland — that we’ll do the same thing we’ve been doing for the last year. Then we’ll be closing up one incarnation before we open the next. I just feel great about it.

KEXP: What can you tell me about the new record?

Ann: The concept of the record is that all the songs are written by people who just recently died. So, I’m honoring Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, Leonard Cohen, Tom Petty and a few others. It’s just a really great experience to get to thank them and to get back in the studio on my own. It’s only the second time ever I’ll be on my own — I did a solo album in 2007 called Hope & Glory — so I’m looking forward to it. I’ll be working with the original Heart producer, Lex Luger, who did the first five records with Heart. He and I are getting back together, that’s going to be a blast.

Working Title: Project Dead Guys

Ann Wilson in the studio, January 3rd 2018

Ann Wilson: “I am most excited about the recording endeavor we have just begun that has a working title, ‘PDG’ (project dead guys). It’s a project very dear to me — a collection of songs by artists who have departed in the last several years: Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Tom Petty, and Chris Cornell to name a few. To honor these great artists is my deepest pleasure and Mike Flicker (Original Heart producer; Dreamboat Annie, Magazine, Little Queen, Dog and Butterfly, & Bebe le Strange etc.) is working with me on this new record. It is thrilling work and I can’t wait for you to hear what we are doing!

Ultimate Classic Rock: “The announcement appears to suggest there’s no end in sight for the family disagreement that forced Heart onto hiatus last year.”

Updated March 3rd 2018: the amount of criticism with regards to the working title may have had an impact. The working title is now: “Songs for the Living”. Ann has left the studio and in the coming weeks we can expect video’s about the upcoming album. The first one has been released so keep watching her social media.

Updated March 6th 2018:


Following A Year-Long Successful Solo Tour, Iconic Vocalist ANN WILSON Of HEART Is Spending The Early Part Of 2018 Recording Her New Solo Release And Debut Album For BMG. Due Out This Summer (Exact Release Date TBA) And With A Working Title Of SONGS FOR THE LIVING: VOL. 1, ANN Has Teamed With Original Heart Producer Mike Flicker (Dreamboat Annie, Magazine, Little Queen, Dog And Butterfly And Bebe Le Strange, Among Others) For An Album That Will Pay Homage To Musicians Lost In The Past Few Years.

“It’s A Project Very Dear To Me–A Collection Of Songs By Artists Who Have Departed In The Last Several Years Including Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell And Amy Winehouse To Name A Few,” ANN Explains. “I Feel These Souls Have Made A Real, Lasting Contribution To The Art Of The Popular Song And To Honor Them Is My Deepest Pleasure.”

The Album Will Feature Some Of The Singer’s Favorite Musicians, With The Full Track List To Be Announced In The Coming Weeks. With The Recording Still In Progress In Los Angeles, The First Three Songs Confirmed Are Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me,” Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black,” And The Eagles’ “Life In The Fast Lane” In Honor Of Glenn Frey.

“Once Again I Am Pushing My Limits As A Singer And It Is Thrilling Work,” ANN Says. “It’s My Way Of Showing Gratitude For These Amazing Expressions In Words And Music. This Record Was Made In The Old School Way…On An Actual Tape Recorder, So The Sound Is Vibrant, Present And Powerful. This Sound Will Not Just Massage The Listener’s Ego, It Will Stoke Their Heart And Soul.”

Press Release Photo March 6th 2018

Updated March 14th 2018: Ann’s new CD can pre-ordered on her website. Signed copies are limited! Plus, for some reason, it is even more limited: you can only order from six countries. So yeah… I’ll pass.

Happy New Year!

It is January 1st 2018 in The Netherlands! heartlinker.nl wishes all the Heartmongers worldwide a Happy New Year!

As I look back on the past year I can’t ignore (sorry!) that both Ann & Nancy seem to have no idea if Heart ever takes the stage again. During 2017 lots of Heartmongers began to understand and deal with the situation as both Ann & Nancy reflected multiple times on the impact of what happened on August 26th 2016 at the White River Amphitheatre. The impact on themselves, the family and the band Heart.

I don’t think we see the whole picture, not by far, but there is little to cheer about. Yes, their time apart has sparked new wonderful things like Nancy’s Roadcase Royale with their phenomenal debut album “First Things First” and Ann’s solo adventures on the road. But the hurt within the Wilson family must be immense. Let’s hope 2018 brings good things.
