Ottawa’s top concerts in 2011

Ann Wilson

9 Heart: Ottawa Civic Centre, Feb. 7

Rock’s legendary sister act led fans through a terrific two-hour concert that provided a career retrospective, as well as a selection of songs from last year’s album, Red Velvet Car. At 60, Ann Wilson’s voice can still send a chill down your spine, and 56-year-old sister Nancy’s guitar work has never been so assured.

Gigs ‘n Interviews: I was totally awestruck with the power of Ann’s voice and this especially came out when they did What About LoveHow Do I Get You Alone?, a rockin’ Crazy For YouBarracuda and a cover of “our” John Farnham’s You’re The Voice, which is impressive itself knowing they did their homework on Australia.

heyheymymy.com.au: Ann didn’t disappoint anyone who had held her up as the example of a great female rock singer. The powerful, soaring, passionate delivery was still there, and on songs like Alone and the closer Love, Reign O’er Me, she was supreme. The last song, a cover of the Who’s Quadrophenia track was a surprise selection.

Review and footage from Adelaide

Heart Down Under

AdelaideNow: The scene-stealers at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre last night were US group Heart, led by Ann Wilson on vocals and sister Nancy on guitar. Although Heart were second on the bill, Ann’s stratospheric vocal range, power and tenacity on such classic ’70s rockers as Magic Man andBarracuda were among the evening’s high points. Nancy, in turn, took the lead on ’80s power ballad These Dreams. However, it was Ann’s astonishing vocal acrobatics on a stripped-down rendition of their big torch song Alone which drew the night’s biggest response from a small but otherwise enthusiastic audience. Heart also performed a virtually identical cover of John Farnham’s trademark hit You’re The Voice (only with wonky keyboards instead of bagpipes) which proved to be another crowd-pleaser. More from this review.

Popmaster reviews Perth show

TOURPOSTER

A Heartmonger reviewed last night’s show in Perth. Heart’s first concert in Australia in their career. Thanx for sending this one in!

“Ann is another story. Inevitably, everyone always addresses how Ann looks, even when they mention her outstanding performances. So let’s get this out of the way: Ann looked healthy, happy, and in the best shape she’s ever been in. She’s such a gorgeous lady, and her positive energy was palpable and certainly came through in her performance. Where most singers go to 10, Ann often goes to 11, and she was unstoppable in Perth. Ann’s vocals were passionate, expressive, and nuanced.” More from this review.
