“This is a great big show, a really exciting show – with lots of pretty lights (she laughs). After more than three decades, we have a whole body of music to choose from. So we’ll do the old songs people want to hear but we’ll also mix it up with our new songs.” Read the entire interview here.
Heart (with special guest Carmen Townsend) plays CN Centre on Thursday, Feb. 24. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster locations and at the CN Centre box office.
From the CN Centre site - Heart announces that they are coming home to Canada in 2011, with their first coast-to-coast Canadian tour in three decades. With a 20-concert run starting on January 28 in St John’s, NL and ending in their Canadian hometown of Vancouver, BC on February 26, Heart at last fulfills a long held desire to play for their Canadian fans in every region of the country on one tour. As Ann and Nancy put it themselves: “Heart had its musical genesis in Vancouver and as artists Canada has always been our spiritual home. Canadians love to rock and we are happy to be bringing Heart as it is now back to Canada. It's like Heart is coming home.”
Over the course of their remarkable career, Heart has sold over 30 million albums and had 22 Top 40 hits. In America, their current AC single “Hey You” has been in the Top 30 for three months, while their classic rock single, “WTF” hovers near Top 10. Over the past decade, Heart songs have achieved ubiquity in pop culture in films (Shrek 3, The Dilemma), television (American Idol, Glee, Dancing with the Stars), commercials (Honda, Swiffer), and videogames (Rock Band, Guitar Hero), as well as in performances by other top artists (Eminem, Fergie, Gretchen Wilson, et al).
