After reuniting to perform with their band Heart for four gigs in late 2023 and on New Year’s Day, sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson have announced that they will be touring with the band for much of 2024. Dates are currently scheduled from April 20 to May 24 and from July 30 to Sept. 22 in North America, and from June 20 to July 12 in Europe.

They will perform at The Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, May 24. Tickets go on sale Feb. 2 at 10 a.m., with pre-sales beginning Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. Visit ticketmaster.com.

They will be joined on the tour — which is being called The Royal Flush Tour — by guitarists Ryan Wariner and Ryan Waters, guitarist-keyboardist Paul Moak, bassist Tony Lucido and drummer Sean T. Lane. Waters was in the last version of Heart, in 2019. Wariner, Moak, Lucido and Lane have backed Ann Wilson under the band name Tripsitter.

Heart’s many hits from the mid-’70s to the early-’90s include “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “These Dreams,” “Crazy on You,” “Straight On,” “Alone” and “Never.”

Here is “Barracuda” from the New Year’s Day performance, which was outdoors at an NHL hockey game in the Wilson sisters’ hometown, Seattle:
