This is a major kick-ass performance by Ann, Nance, and the band at Caesar's Colosseum and, let's face it, Heart LIVE is what this band is all about ... They've always known how to deliver the goods to the fans from Day One.
This deluxe package is also nice, of course, because not only do you get to HEAR Heart sing songs from their latest studio release "Fanatic", but there's a bonus DVD of the entire performance so you get to SEE it as well!! And let's face it ... how many of us here are actually lucky enough to get a front row seat at a Heart concert?!
Grand job, as always, A&N!! Much continued success to you and this smokin' band backing you up these days. :-)
It goes without saying that Ann still has amazing vocal prowess. She doesn't have quite the upper range she had back in the '70s, but her voice is still transcendent and she gives such passionate, cathartic vocals every time. Nancy is a gifted rhythm guitar player and still does all her classic moves. She's great fun to watch! Her opening acoustic section for "Crazy on You" features heavy improv and she really cooks on this particular evening. Both Wilson sisters still look gorgeous. Can you believe Ann turns 64 this year?? I can't! She looks beautiful.
I've never been one who believes any new songs performed by classic bands are "bathroom break" tracks in between the classic hits. I'd actually say that the multiple songs the band performs from their latest "Fanatic" album are the highlights of the show. Fanatic is a very strong release and the Wilson sisters are obviously proud of the material. Songs like Fanatic, Dear Old America, Walkin' Good, 59 Crunch and Mashallah sound SUPERB in a live setting. These are some crunchy, riff heavy songs and all (except the acoustic Walkin' Good) are among the hardest rocking songs the band has ever recorded. Ann and Nancy have passion and enthusiasm for the new material, turning every new song into a highlight. I'd rather see Ann belt out Mashallah with intensity than watch another version of Even It Up.
That's not to say the classic songs are sub par. They aren't. The whole show is a joy to watch and, rest assured "Magic Man" fans…it may not be in the track listing but it's available as a bonus performance on the DVD. Overall, this is an awesome release and another treat for us Heart Mongers! The last few years have been great for Ann and Nancy and I can't wait to see where they go from here!
I do wish, though, they'd expand their comfort zone outside of the same 'oldies'. What About Love in this concert is the only one they hadn't performed in the previous three. To their credit, they have brought in strings and tinkered with arrangements over the years to try and keep things fresh. Dog & Butterfly practically sounds new this time around.
I will continue to soak up all things Heart and so should you. Ann & Nancy (and their band) are phenomenal performers. We should be so grateful for their sustained longevity.
