Ann Wilson, who has been performing as a member of Heart for more than 40 years, will be touring as a solo artist this year, and coming to the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, March 25, and BergenPAC in Englewood, April 4. Tickets go on sale Jan. 13 at 9 a.m. for Morristown (visit mayoarts.org) and Jan. 13 at 11 a.m. for Englewood (visit bergenpac.org).
Her band will include guitarist Craig Bartock, bassist Andy Stoller and drummer Denny Fongheiser. All have previously worked with Heart and/or Wilson’s side project, The Ann Wilson Thing.
In a press release, Wilson said that the selists will feature “a mix of songs that have powered my life; iconic soul stirring covers, songs from my years of solo work and the unforgettable songs of Heart.”
Heart, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013, toured and released a new album, Beautiful Broken, last year, but currently has no shows planned.
“Heart is always evolving, changing,” said Wilson in the press release. “It is a living organism. Right now it’s in a cocoon of metamorphosis, and we will see what emerges when the time is right.”
