NEWS: Heart set to release ‘Heart & Friends – Home for the Holidays’

Last December, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson returned to their hometown of Seattle to stage a celebration of the season, gathering a few of their friends to join them in singing holiday classics, personal favourites and some of their own hits.

Special guests Shawn Colvin, Sammy Hagar, Richard Marx and Pat Monahan from Train joined Heart for this once-in-a-lifetime concert which was taped on December 12th 2013 at the beautiful Benaroya Symphony Concert Hall in Seattle.

The Wilson sisters performed an array of holiday songs originally written by Joni Mitchell, Harry Nilsson, Bob Dylan and Sammy Hagar in their Christmas set as well as some of HEART’s favourite songs. Colvin, Hagar, Marx and Monahan provided additional vocals on the tunes and/or sing duets with Heart.

HEART & FRIENDS: HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS ended a prolific and award-winning year in 2013 for the band, who have been enjoying a resurgence of popularity since 2010′s “Red Velvet Car”, which became the group’s first Top 10 album in 20 years. Many successful live shows and tours (including a 2011 tour with Def Leppard, and their 2013 “Heartbreaker” tour) have occurred with 2012 seeing the release of “Strange Euphoria”, a definitive career-spanning box set; the arrival of “Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll”, a best-selling autobiography; the announcement of Ann and Nancy Wilson’s Heart star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the release of Fanatic, Heart’s 14th studio album.

Last week’s playlist plus we can now start up our ‘Request-line’ for 19th December show!

Hello everyone.

Thanks for all the +tive vibes both during and after last week’s show. One of the most enjoyable things for me when presenting a ‘live’ show is to see from the comments and posts made on Twitter and Facebook just how much everyone is having a good time. That’s what it’s all about, after all!

Here’s the playlist:

December 12th, 2013 playlistOver half of what we played was down to you requesting it!

So that brings us neatly to our next show [Event details here]. I’ll have some festive tuneage for you in any case to get with the vibe, but now’s you chance to tell us what you’d like to hear played during The Classic Rock Show ‘Christmas Party’ this Thursday, 19th December from 7pm GMT.

The ‘Request-line’ is now open!

What have you got for us this week? The ‘line’ closes on Tuesday at 9pm.

Cheers
