Heart: Live in Las Vegas
Venue: Las Vegas House Of Blues
The Wilson sisters and co. raise the roof with bluesy rockers, 80s hits and Zeppelin covers at an intimate show.
It’s no stretch to say that the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors did more for Heart than for Led Zeppelin, the band to whom they paid tribute. As millions of YouTube viewers have now seen, Heart’s breathtaking rendition of Stairway To Heaven drew excited approval from Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, while reducing Robert Plant to tears.
Since then, Heart have remained at the forefront of the enduring 70s nostalgia fest, reclaiming much of the stature they seemed to have lost in the wake of the commercial balladry of their 80s MTV phase. In 2013 the band’s iconic line-up reunited – for one night only – for the first time in over three decades at their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, and last year the band entered the Top 20 of the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart with Fanatic Live From Caesars Colosseum.Capitalising on this meteoric momentum, tonight Heart kick off their North American tour with a (relatively) intimate show at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas.
