Ann Wilson’s concert Wednesday, March 8, at the Moore is the first date of her upcoming tour, but for the Heart singer, the night also will represent a number of other firsts. It’s her first gig with a new band; her first hometown gig since she’s relocated to the East Coast; and her first appearance since she and sister Nancy put Heart on ‘temporary hiatus’ to pursue new bands.
The two sisters have had other side projects in the four decades since they broke through in the 1970s to create a series of hits that got them inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Ann Wilson even toured a bit last year under the name ‘The Ann Wilson Thing.’
But the difference in this tour is that Wilson is now singing Heart songs in her solo project. ‘We’re still working through our set,’ she says, ‘but I think half will be Heart songs. All those will be re-imagined, rethought and reworked.’”
