Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson and the rest of their band Heart, will make a stop at the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday, October 13. The sisters have been performing together for 5 decades. Their interest in music started when they were children, after seeing the Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Heart first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide. Over the group’s history, it has had three primary lineups, with the constant center of the group since 1973 being sisters Ann Wilson (lead vocals, flute and guitar) and Nancy Wilson (guitar, mandolin and vocals). Heart rose to fame in the mid-1970s with music influenced by hard rock and heavy metal, as well as folk music. Their popularity declined in the early 1980s, but in 1985, the band launched a successful comeback which saw them experience greater success with album-oriented rock hits and hard-rock ballads that went into the 1990s.
To date, Heart has sold over 35 million records worldwide, including over 22.5 million in album sales in the U.S. They have had top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2010s. The group was ranked number 57 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock”. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
Appearing with Heart will be Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Joan Jett is an American rock singer, guitarist and song-writer. She is considered a musical icon, often cited as being the Queen of Rock and Roll.
Doors open at 6:00 pm and the show starts at 7:00 pm
