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.
