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.

Lengthy Interview with Nancy

Nancy Wilson 2017

PopEntertainment.comI was so sorry to hear about [long-time Heart manager] Carol Peters passing. How instrumental do you think that she was for your having such a long career as a musician?

Nancy: She was highly instrumental in our longevity. She took us on at a time that any other rock band’s lifespan – or second or third lifespan – was probably over. She sat down with us and she said, “What is your bucket list? What do you want to see happen in the next two years? What would you dream? What would be your favorite scenario? Your wish list for the next two years?” It was like, well… another album. Another tour. Doing things outside of just the album and tour. I was going to do a children’s book, and maybe work on some film scores, which I did. It was a wonderful thing to have this woman who sort of became our Jewish mother. (laughs) She was a real ball of fire. A big ball of fire in a very small package, really. She gave us a lot of renewed energy to go ahead and fight against some of the more negative perceptions for women, especially after the 80s, when you had to look perfect. You couldn’t just be good, you had to look good. That was more important at many times. More than the music was the perception and the imaging of it all. We were fighting against that with a really ferocious woman who was fighting for our women’s rights, in a way, inside the industry.

Detroit, MI (October 3, 2017) – Bob Seger announced today that he will have to postpone upcoming tour dates upon receiving his doctor’s orders to attend to an urgent medical issue concerning his vertebrae. No further details are available at this time.

Seger and his Silver Bullet Band played the 13th sold out show of their 2017 Runaway Train Tour last Thursday in Pittsburgh. On Saturday, Seger had to postpone his 14th show in Columbus.

Drink’s On the House! – Guest Post from Video Connoisseur™

. . . Let’s celebrate a glorious jam from these 3 trailblazing rockers, Nancy Wilson, Liv Warfield, and Felicia Collins, recorded at the Global Citizen Festial! Queued on the following youtube video is the moment Felicia Collins of Paul Shaffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band (David Letternman’s long-time house band), chimes in for the guitar solo Nancy made famous for Even It Up – listen:
MarchofTheRashbaum
Yeeeees! Girl power ecstasy!!! Three rockers with hard-won industry cred side-by-side in one of the potent hard rock anthems of all time! Congratulations, to Felicity Collins, Nancy Wilson, and Liv Warfield for setting high goals and inspiring the rest of us!
More on the Global Citizen Festival: globalcitizen.org

Roadcase Royale is the happening ticket for energetic opener for Bob Seger, or solo appearances between tour dates, which have Roadcase Royale playing to packed or sold out venues. Here are my favorite live captures, where the band plays tight, and front woman Liv jumps around the stage, dancing, playing tambourine, singing behind the beat, and powering through standards and new tunes:

Latest (posted today) Mind Your Business live from Gramercy
– thanx, NSDQ160th Youtube channel
Has a swampy groove, would you agree?

Cover Each Other excerpt (my fav)
Michael Songco
Irresistible rhythm immerses the listener. This live version could go on 20 minutes, instead of the 2 1/2 Michael Songco captured! Still, thanx!

Insaniac
extplay Youtube Channel
How about that 2 minute solo by Ryan Waters at the end? This one is captivating the critics. Gus from Back Stage Axxess wrote:

“Insaniac” might be the most complete track on “First Things First.” This hard rocking blues based song has both Wilson and Waters playing off each other, bringing out the best in Waters.

Never Say Die TDHS posted on an earlier blog entry. Liv’s vocals flow like molasses on that tune!

The Dragon from the March show:
– the CalVid Youtube Channel capture has good sound quality.

Check out Felicia Collins’ Hole in My Heart at a benefit:|Black Rock Coalition TV
Amazing! Sings beautiful and with feeling – what a talent!

Last but not least, Bob Seger is my hero for giving Roadcase its chance. There is overlap in my taste with Bob Seger’s cover of Lou Reed’s Busload of Faith, from his up-and-coming album. Enjoy a recent live performance, here:
sunspotbaby1962 Youtube Channel
Cool cover! SunSpotBaby1962 posted the whole concert for the armchair concert goers to get a sample of this historical tour! His hosting Nancy and her band made me listen and discover this amazing group, Bob Seger and his band.

Only acts which are on my radar are the ones that gain notice from Video Connoisseur™. Now, Felicia Collins and Bob Seger are on my radar. Video Connoisseur™ is a collection of fan captures or other live video captures. Like paparazzi shots capture the real appearance of a celebrity, instead of a studio photo by a professional photographer, after hair and makeup artists and stylists alter and tweak, live performances are the snapshot of the real band! It’s an exciting time for live enthusiasts, with youtube uploads, with tv appearances which take on historical significance, of past contributers to the music scene, and current artists, who are easy to video record by phone. I enjoy and have the ability to put myself in the little screen, and lose myself in recorded concerts and I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE!!! Lana Del Rey’s career certainly been enhanced by audiences who are like me. We enjoy video captures of her live performances by other devoted fans. Her fans must comprise that segment of lonely people who lose themselves online, like me. Artists of today adapt to the release of the iPhone in 2007. It opens new possibilities! I listen on PC using SeaMonkey browser and headphones on only my left (good) ear, at 25% PC volume, and yank the Youtube volume to near silent. Thankfully, Youtube remembers your volume setting – low volume is loud enough for my sensitive ears!

Hope you enjoyed this curated list of videos presented here by kind invitation of TDHS, the administrator of Heartlinker.nl, who let me share! Heartlinker.nl is my go-to site for fan news about Heart.

VideoConnoisseur.com has more videos on my radar, mostly female singer / acoustic guitar. Watch them on Youtube, because the sound is better. Thanx.
