Heart, the main act, consisting of sisters Nancy and Ann Wilson, took the stage shortly after Sheryl Crow, also welcomed with a standing ovation from many longtime fans, some stretching back decades. Their first song, “Rockin' Heaven Down” was an immediate attention-grabber and had everyone jamming along, especially because it was the first time the song had been performed live since 1982.
Along with several of their well-known songs, including “Magic Man,” “Dog and Butterfly,” and “These Dreams,” Heart performed a variety of covers such as Marvin Gaye's “Heard It Through the Grapevine," Simon & Garfunkel's “The Boxer,” Pink Floyd's “Comfortably Numb,” and Yes' “Your Move.” Three more songs as part of the encore—Led Zeppelin's “The Battle of Evermore,” “What About Love,” and “Alone”—were performed with powerful vocals and rock-and-roll spirit. But it was crowd favorite, “Barracuda” that had everyone on their feet, head-banging along to this classic hit. Heart’s performance onstage was empowering and entertaining, leaving many fans with—pun intended—heavy hearts when the show ended.
Opening for Crow and Heart was British singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas, whose latest record, E.G.O., was released in August 2018.
