Rock-and-roll Hall of Fame inductees, Heart, performed at the Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Conn. on Friday, July 3, 2015. The crowd was eager to hear the band’s performance and gave them a standing ovation as they walked out on stage. Energized, the band opened their set with a blistering rendition of “Magic Man” from the “Dreamboat Annie” album. A strong start to what turned out to be an amazing show.
Heart has amassed an enormous repertoire during their 40 plus year career, and they could have easily packed their set list with only the hits. Instead, the band played a variety of songs, including the more familiar songs “What About Love,” “These Dreams,” “Crazy on You” and “Barracuda,” intermixed with select covers and tunes from their 2012 album, “Fanatic.” Nancy Wilson sang a moving version of Elton John’s “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters.”
The highlight of the night came during the performance of the song “Alone” from the “Bad Animals” album. Ann Wilson’s vocal performance was both strong and emotional. Everyone in the theater felt it. When the band finished the song the crowd exploded into cheers louder than any song the band played during the night. It was a moment many will not soon forget.
We’ve been to a few Heart shows in recent years and it seems like they get better each time. Now, I’m looking forward to the next one.
