2016 tour ends in Louisiana USA

As we still await the announcing of shows in 2017 (and that wait is getting a little long compared to other years since 2002, making some Heartmongers worry), Heart played the last show for now on Saturday October 22nd 2016 in the Riverdome at Horseshoe Casino in Bossier City, Louisiana. Hereby ending the 2016 tour that took them to Canada, the UK and all over the USA, often accompanied by Joan Jett and Cheap Trick. This post will be updated these coming days with a couple of pictures and maybe vids from this particular show below the banners from the 2016 run.

Classic Rock Mag’s Top 50 female AOR: Ann #1

AOR 7

AOR 7

Ann Wilson has been named Leading Lady of AOR and finest female AOR singer alive. She leads the top 50 taking gold, where Stevie Nicks takes the silver and Pat Benatar takes the bronze. Cher is at number 7. The top 50 was published in the, rather expensive, newest edition of Classic Rock Magazine AOR, the special edition of Classic Rock Magazine, “Classic Rock Presents AOR 7: BOSTON”. This special issue features HEART: Their new LP is called Fanatic. We send AOR’s very own Heart fanatic, Siân Llewellyn, to chat with celebrated sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson.

Ann Wilson of Heart is number 1.

Ann Wilson of Heart is number 1.

Indeed the same issue not only features the top 50, but also a four page interview with Ann Wilson, where she tells about the new album Fanatic. the interview was done in New York city in October 2012. Most interesting quote:

It’s a different experience seeing them play on their home turf rather than on one of their sporadic visits to the UK – something which is “in our plan for 2013, definitely,” says Ann.

No European tour-dates for 2012

But no tour in 2012

Unfortunately new information has surfaced about the European tour that was in the works. It won’t happen in 2012. In a reply on the official bulletin board at heart-music.com, management said: “I was disappointed that Heart is not playing in the UK this year too. Management asked the agents to come up with a routing that would include the major UK and European festivals. The offers that came back were not sufficient enough to pay for all of the costs associated with touring.”

Last time Heart toured Europe was in 2004 for the Jupiters Darling Tour.

Though the dissapointment must be big among European fans, it is a positive sign that Heart was trying to make it work. Next year there might be a better chance – when touring behind a new album.

Monger Dirk says the following: “Yes, Ann said at the end of the event that she heard about a European summer tour in 2012. This would be really fantastic!” Thanx Dirk :)
