To support the release of “Red Velvet Car,” Heart toured through the summer of 2010 including four Lilith Fair shows and nearly 40 headline shows, which continued through September 25 and will pick up again in November and December. Heart’s first album (“Dreamboat Annie”) was released in 1976. The band broke barriers with a repertoire that includes rock classics like “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Straight On,” alongside acoustic standards like “These Dreams,” “Dog & Butterfly” and “Dreamboat Annie.” They were 2008 recipients of VH1 Rock Honors, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Northwest Grammy Foundation and received ASCAP’s award for Excellence in Songwriting in 2009.
