Heart announce “Love Alive Tour” featuring Joan Jett, Brandi Carlile, and Sheryl Crow

Heart are returning to the road this summer for their first North American outing in three years. The “Love Alive Tour”, named after Heart’s 1977 Little Queen track, will also feature an all-star lineup of guest openers in Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, 2019 Grammys star Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Elle King, and Lucie Silvas.

The tour launches July 9th in St. Louis and runs all the way until September 9th, when it wraps up in Hollywood. The massive itinerary includes stops in Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Cincinnati, Syracuse, Camden, Cleveland, and Detroit. Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson are also headed to Nashville, Charlotte, Tampa, Atlanta, Dallas, Salt Lake City, and Los Angeles.

Speaking on the tour’s title, Ann remarked in a statement, “‘Love Alive’ is a song and a sentiment that goes back a long way with us. It goes forward too. It is a hopeful, positive and universal vibe like we feel this tour will be.”

The name is also apt given that this tour also marks Heart’s first since major family drama nearly tore the band apart. In 2016, Ann’s husband was arrested on charges that he assaulted Nancy’s children. Although Heart refrained from officially breaking up, the Wilson sisters worked and toured separately for years after the incident.

As for their talented tour mates, Nancy said the lineup feels especially important given the current state of the world today. “I think this year is a good year to show the collective impact of some powerful women in music,” she explained. “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.” (The Grammys would probably agree, finally.) 

Tickets for the tour go on sale to the public beginning February 15th at 10 a.m. local time. You can also later purchase them on StubHub.
