HEART—ANN and NANCY WILSON–will return to the road in 2019 for the first time in three years with their massive “Love Alive” cross-country summer tour and will be stopping in Darien Center on Friday, July 26 at the Darien Lake Amphitheater. HEART is excited to be joined by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts with Elle King opening. Read a recent Q&A with Ann and Nancy here, talking about (among other subjects) the connection between them and the female artists joining them this summer.
When Ann and Nancy Wilson formed HEART, the idea of two women leading a rock band was still groundbreaking. From the moment 1976’s Dreamboat Annie was released, they became stars. With hits like “Magic Man,” “Crazy On You,” “Barracuda,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” and “These Dreams,” the band became one of the biggest hit-makers in the seventies and eighties selling more than 35 million records. In 2012, their memoir Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll became a New York Times bestseller, and in 2013 the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
