Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Heart are headed back on the road in 2019 with their Love Alive tour. Produced by Live Nation, the 39-city summer tour will kick off on July 9 at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, Mo. Love Alive will hit Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Denver before closing out in Los Angeles on Sept. 9 at Hollywood Bowl.
Ann and Nancy Wilson will be joined on tour with a stellar lineup of special guests including fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Grammy winners Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile.
“I think this year is a good year to show the collective impact of some powerful women in music. We would usually steer clear of the female-centric concept, but in the light of current events it seems like the right statement at the right time,” said Nancy Wilson in a release.
Also joining Heart this summer are Elle King and Lucie Silvas for select dates.
“Sheryl and Joan we have known for a long time. We have hung out and appreciated each other’s music onstage and off,” said Ann Wilson in a release. “Brandi Carlile is a fresh and authentic artist that we both love….and Elle King is my favorite new artist. She has so much soul and attitude! We are so thrilled to host all these artists on the ‘Love Alive’ tour.”
Love Alive will mark Heart’s first tour in three years. The Wilson sisters took a break to pursue other musical endeavors.
“Both Nancy and I have stretched our wings in life these last three years. We’ve both lived and loved. We have breathed and traveled and experienced life. We come to this tour with fresh energy and oxygen,” said Ann. “It will be unlike any other Heart tour that has been. Some of the songs will be classic of course, but this tour will be a new animal.”
