Heart’s Heart & Friends — Home for the Holidays will be released as CD/DVD, Blu Ray and digital download on November 10, 2014 by Frontiers Music SRL.
Last December, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson returned to their hometown of Seattle to stage a celebration of the season, gathering a few of their friends to join them in singing holiday classics, personal favorites and some of their own hits.
Special guests Shawn Colvin, Sammy Hagar, Richard Marx and Pat Monahan from Train joined Heart for this unique concert which was taped on December 12th 2013 at the Benaroya Symphony Concert Hall in Seattle. The Wilson sisters performed an array of holiday songs originally written by Joni Mitchell, Harry Nilsson, Bob Dylan and Sammy Hagar in their Christmas set as well as some of Heart’s favorite songs. Colvin, Hagar, Marx and Monahan provided additional vocals on the tunes and/or sing duets.
“We had a great time putting on this show with special friends for the holidays. Warm moments and great music from all... and some saucy little elves too,” said Ann Wilson. “We have always held the holidays up as a wonderful whimsical time of year and celebrating it in our beloved home town with friends, songs and family was extremely magical,” added Nancy Wilson.
Heart & Friends: Home For The Holidays ended a prolific and award-winning year in 2013 for the band, who have been enjoying a resurgence of popularity since 2010′s Red Velvet Car, which became the group’s first Top 10 album in 20 years.
There have been many successful live shows and tours in recent years, including a 2011 tour with Def Leppard, and their 2013 “Heartbreaker” tour. In 2012, they released Strange Euphoria, a definitive career-spanning box set, as well as Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll, their best-selling autobiography. That same year, Heart got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and released Fanatic, their14th studio album.
Last, but certainly not the least, Heart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
