Paul Mercs Concerts is proud to announce that 2013 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Heart, will bring their Rockin Heaven – Canada Tour 2014 to Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Wednesday, June 18. Heart, who will be joined by special guest Jason Bonham in a sensational tribute to Led Zeppelin, will bring four decades of hits with them to Canada.
Ann and Nancy Wilson first met Bonham, son of famed Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, when they performed Stairway to Heaven together at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Led Zeppelin in December of 2012. More than six million fans have watched the performance online and purchased the track on iTunes. Now, in addition to a full set of Heart classic hits including Crazy on You, Barracuda, Alone, These Dreams and What About Love, fans can experience this historical pairing live when Heart and Bonham close each show with a sensational tribute to Led Zeppelin.
Ann Wilson promises fans an incredibly special event. “Nancy and I are thrilled to be playing with Jason. Awesome rock n’ roll music every night…miracles apt to happen any old time.” Nancy adds, “It’s not a tribute as we have the blessings of the gods themselves.”
Jason adds, “what a great night it was for us at the Kennedy Center, and now to be able to do it again on the road with Ann and Nancy is such an honour for me.”
Ann Wilson and her younger sister Nancy first showed the world that women can rock when their band Heart stormed the charts in the ‘70s with hits like Crazy on You, Magic Man, Barracuda, Straight On,Even It Up and Kick It Out. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80s and into the ‘90s with huge hits like These Dreams, Alone, Never and a string of other hits that showcased the sister’s enormous talents as both musicians and singers. Across four decades and 14 studio albums, Heart has sold more than 35 million records, had 21 top 40 hits, sold out arenas worldwide and profoundly influenced the sound and direction of American rock music, while inspiring women around the world to rock out in bands of their own.
A new Heart DVD/CD, Fanatic Live from Caesar’s Colosseum, which was recorded in Windsor, Ont., will be released on Feb. 25.
