Ann Wilson of "Heart" Brings Her Solo Show to Houston's Arena Theatre June 4
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," says the esteemed and pioneering Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Ann Wilson, who’s known for her force-of-nature vocals. In a time when the Rock n’ Roll industry was dominated by men, Wilson created a truly impressive career as the lead singer of Heart.
The group released their first album in 1976, containing two hit singles, "Crazy on You"and "Magic Man," rising up to No. 7 on the Billboard Charts. Their second album, "Little Queen," featured their hit single "Barracuda," which led to the Wilson sisters' cover on Rolling Stone magazine. After selling over 30 million records, having four Grammy nominations, and numerous singles in the top 40, Heart was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.
Only a year later Heart was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. After four decades rockin’ out with Heart, Wilson has decided to build on her personal career with a solo tour, which kicked off in her home town of Seattle. "This tour coming up people can expect to see some Heart songs, amazing covers, and new songs that I’ve written," Wilson says. "They’ll see things that really influenced me and they’ll see me stretching out as a singer and improving, hopefully … It’ll be interesting and fun."
