What are the sisters up to?

While Ann & Nancy are preparing for their huge Summertour as Heart, the ladies have been throwing all kinds of stuff our way. Ann has continued her videoseries about “Da Shoe” and “Ruby Tales”, mixed with her views on life. In the “Da Shoe” (now up to 12 episodes) a sneakerboot can be seen going around her house. You even get to see her huge Heart collection. “Ruby Tales” is a beautiful classic car that Ann and her husband have purchased. Nancy has put her house up for sale (according to LA Times and UCR) and will be performing on May 15th at “Acoustic for a Cure”. Heart has put up vids about the upcoming tour: Ann talks about playing “Sand” and Nancy is pondering “Nada One” (YES PLEASE!). Nancy made an appearance in NYC recently and looks ready to shine.

Tour? “I cannot say out loud right now”

Ann was interviewed leading up to her last 2018 “Ann Wilson of Heart” tourdate in Wisconsin. She was also in the Seattle local press as her former mansion is on the market again. She sold her house back in 2016 and the current owner has listed the home.

Ann can be seen in the in the SeattleRefinded video below talking about her former house and also looking forward to a possible Heart reunion. On that subject she says: “There’s an urban myth going around that Nancy and I have a big feud going on,” laughed Wilson. “Which we do not. We love each other[but] I cannot say out loud right now that we’re going on tour.” and at Oshkosh Independent Ann touches the subject as well: “Well, I’m not at liberty to discuss that right now. Of course there will be at some time. There is a lot of talk going on right now. We just really can’t announce it yet.”

Keep track of what Ann & Nancy say about their 2019 plans here.

Nancy and Ann talking: 2019 TOUR?

NorthWest Music Scene:

Great news Heart fans, it sounds like our beloved Ann and Nancy have been talking and in this current interview with Philadelphia’s classic rock station WMGK, Nancy revealed that talks are underway for a summer 2019 tour.

WMGK’s André Gardner was chatting with Heart’s Nancy Wilson on Wednesday and she told him that she and Ann are talking again and are in the early stages of a HEART reunion tour for 2019!

Added August 2nd 2018: Metro.us: We’ve come to a new conclusion, a happy one you’re hearing here first, in separate interviews with each Wilson sister. To paraphrase Mark Twain, “the reports of Heart’s death are greatly exaggerated.”

“I’ve been reaching out as there are enticing plans on the table for a big tour in 2019,” says Nancy of the hopeful possibilities of a live reunion. “I’d like to figure out what would be exciting and different for both of us going forward.”

“There’s an over-inflated urban myth that Nancy and I are in some sort of big feud,” says Ann. “We worked out our cranky issues a couple of years ago, and have just been enjoying the freedom of time off and doing our solo things.”

[…]

When it comes to the future of the Heart band and making that work, each Wilson sounded quietly optimistic.

“We’re not at each other’s throats – won’t wind up doing a Mick and Keith,” says Ann. “No matter what you do or say right, musically, for 40+ years, it’s one negative thing that people latch onto and embroider… She’s my sister. We have a band together, but, we’re both growing, and it will be exciting to see – when we do get back together –what we both learned, expanded and can bring into Heart.”

Nancy has been the busiest field offers related to Heart, a Broadway musical involving producer Rita Wilson (not related, Tom Hanks’ wife) about women’s empowerment and incorporating Heart songs.

“We’re singing Heart songs in the Roadcase Royale set, Liv does them so that you’re hair stand up – so different from Ann whose powerful voice we based Heart on,” says Nancy. “I’m looking to catch Ann’s ear soon – sit down in a room with just her, just us. We should figure out what songs we would do and not, what new and different show we would create. I’m anxious to see how this happens. The fans want this, which is the most important thing.”

Press release: BMG are delighted to announce the release of ‘Immortal’, a brand new solo album from Heart legend Ann Wilson, which will be released on 14 September 2018.  The collection features her stunning interpretations of songs from artists that have connected and inspired her.  Taking in a broad sweep of incredible songs like ‘Back To Black’ by Amy Winehouse, ‘I’m Afraid Of Americans’ by Bowie and ‘Luna’ by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.  She also takes on a Chris Cornell song, following her moving tribute to him at the 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony [Ann was inducted with the rest of Heart in 2013].

Ann herself said, “At this point in my life and career, I am happy to be given any opportunities, and I am really, really proud to be doing this album. 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, Amy Winehouse, and George Michael to name a few. I feel these souls have made a real, lasting contribution to the art of the popular song, and to honour them is my deepest pleasure.

“Mike Flicker (Original Heart producer; Dreamboat Annie, Magazine, Little Queen, Dog and Butterfly, Bebe le Strange, etc.) is working with me on this new album. It has been a wonderful experience for me because I’m not only singing, but directing, too. I am able to see the project grow from an idea to a finished song, with no compromises to the original vision. My team and I are not holding back, and you can expect the unexpected on the tracks.  We’ll have some surprise guests on the record, including Jeff Beck, Warren Haynes and Ben Mink.  It has been a thrilling endeavour, and I can’t wait to share the finished album with you in the coming weeks.”

‘Immortal’ is the result of a truly legendary songwriter exploring the work of others, work that has inspired and empowered her over the years.  It’s a personal collection, but one that will resonate with anyone else who believes on the power of music to outlast us all.

Ann Wilson @ RRHOF Induction 2018

Ann Wilson and Jerry Cantrell honored Cornell with a sparse rendition of “Black Hole Sun,” Soundgarden’s breakout hit from 1994’s Superunknown.

From Rolling Stone:

Human beings of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I’m here this evening to induct the Moody Blues into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Moody Blues took me from childhood to adulthood as a disciple; their philosophical, spiritual, romantic and everyday messages were liberating and challenging to my then-forming mind.

The very few boys who took me on dates in those days were instantaneously upstaged if “Nights in White Satin” or “Dawn Is a Feeling” came on the car radio. And when “Legend of a Mind” was played, the date was usually over because the awkward gropings of earthly boys didn’t seem to resonate like that astral plane. More here
