Tickets are currently on-sale, and selling quickly for the Victoria date (March 8) and, Vancouver concert (March 9).
Ann Wilson and her younger sister, Nancy first showed the world that women can rock when their band HEART stormed the charts in the '70s with hits like "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," "Barracuda," 'Straight On," "Even It Up," and "Kick It Out". They continued topping the charts through the '80s and '90s with huge hits like "These Dreams," "Alone," "What About Love," "If Looks Could Kill," and "Never".
HEART started their career in British Columbia, where the group's first record "Dreamboat Annie" was written, recorded and first released in Canada on Mushroom Records in 1976. Since then, HEART has sold more than 30 million records, have garnered 21 top 40 hits, sold out arenas worldwide, and had a profound influence on rock music. HEART was also ranked No. 57 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".
In the mid-'90s, Ann and Nancy returned to Seattle and formed The Lovemongers, with long-time collaborator Sue Ennis and performer Frank Cox. After playing a number of sold-out shows in Seattle, Lovemongers cut Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore" for the triple platinum soundtrack from the movie Singles, which was one of Nancy's first of five soundtrack collaborations with filmmaker Cameron Crowe.
Ann and Nancy reunited as HEART in early 2002, during which time they released a critically acclaimed live concert film on DVD and CD, Heart Alive In Seattle, followed in 2004 by Jupiters Darling, the first new HEART studio album in a decade. Classic Rock magazine hailed Jupiters Darling as a career tour de force, calling it "the only record you need to buy this year."
HEART is currently in the studio with Grammy winning producer, Ben Mink, working on a new CD for release later this year. HEART'S performances in British Columbia will feature brand new tracks from the upcoming currently untitled album, as well as their powerhouse hits.
