The ladies of Heart unveiled their new album “Fanatic” to an intimate crowd during Tuesday night’s iHeart Radio concert in New York City. “We’ve been in hotels talking for hours it’s so good to be able to finally play,” Nancy Wilson said. To which her sister Ann Wilson playfully added, “so quit talking and let’s play.”

It’s been a good year for the rock duo who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on September 25th just days before the October 2nd release of “Fanatic” and nearly 35 years after bursting into the scene. Their memoir “Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock and Roll” arrived in bookstores on September 18th. In it the ladies reveal “a first-hand chronicle of tumultuous inter-band relationships, thirty years of roller-coaster fame and continual reinvention, and, of course, the kind of excess that can comes from the surreal, and hyper-real demands of life on the road, Kicking and Dreaming is an intimate, honest, and a uniquely female take on rock and roll life.”
The concert mainly consisted of cuts from their 14th studio album, like proud parents the Wilson sisters were eager to show them off and the audience ate it up. They opened with the album’s lead off track, “Fanatic” and followed it with fan favorite “Even It Up.” But of course no Heart show is complete without their smash hit, “Barracuda” which they saved for last.
