Heart singer Ann Wilson has announced her 2017, 20-date solo tour, which kicks off Tuesday, March 8 at the Moore Theatre in Seattle, It goes onto Los Angeles, Denver, Philadelphia, Englewood, NJ and New Orleans, among other cities. Tickets go on sale on this Friday, January 13.
"The stage is a magical place where I can be beautifully in and out of control, where I can build a fire and then jump into it," Wilson says. "The stage is where I have always lived; where I've expressed my deepest emotions and supreme joys. I suppose I am addicted to it. I've never been much good at talking, but I can sing, and when I sing I connect with people in a much deeper, higher way."
Musicians on board for the tour include Craig Bartock on guitar (Heart member for a dozen years, who also performed in the Ann Wilson Thing for two years) from San Francisco; Andy Stoller on bass (the Ann Wilson Thing member for two years) from Seattle; Denny Fongheiser on drums and percussion (Heart member in the 1990's for two years) from Los Angeles.
