Concert Review: Jack's 6th Show
Here's an excerpt about Heart's performance at Jack's 6th Show from a recent article posted on The Orange County Register:
"Last year, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart put out Red Velvet Car, their first studio album in six years. With acoustic-based textures and a mature rock sound, it touches upon their ’70s heyday, yet only the freaky “WTF” (yes, it stands for what you think) was aired at the Jack show. The rest of the performance found the ladies in mostly robust vocal form and getting an overwhelming response, including for their trademark Led Zeppelin (the fierce “Rock and Roll” to open; a baroque handling of “The Battle of Evermore” for the first encore) and Who numbers (an ultra-dramatic “Love Reign O’er Me” was the final closer).
Then there was an ample dose of classic rock radio staples: Ann’s trills were feisty on “Magic Man,” “Heartless” boasted a pile-driving crunch, “Straight On” was unadulterated sexuality. Although the glossy ’80s pop hits (“What About Love,” “Alone”) were dialed back a bit, Ann still whipped herself into a frenzy. Meanwhile, a mandolin- and flute-infused “These Dreams” was gorgeous; “Crazy on You” and “Barracuda” packed quite a punch, too."
