Heart – The Beat Goes On

heart-2013-tourHeart made a stop at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA to rock a warm, humid night last Friday.  Fresh off their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last spring, Ann and Nancy Wilson brought the latest incarnation of the band out for an audio and visual feast that more than fully satisfied the musical belly of the nearly sold-out venue.

With food like this I could gorge day after day.

Heart could have played for three days and still have had plenty left in their tank.  They came onstage and unleashed a set that was almost in a perfect chronological order of hit after hit covering their successes from the seventies, eighties, and nineties.  The band was tight, the sound was extremely well-crafted, and I learned first-hand that Ann Wilson can still belt out vocals that simply put her on a different plane than most female singers.



Mythical Adventures

Myth:  Iran poses a serious nuclear threat
