heartHeart are getting back together after three years apart for a massive 2019 "Love Alive" tour that will also feature Joan Jett and the Black Hearts stopping at Jones Beach on Sept 26 as the finale to close out the season at the Amphitheater. tix:

The 39-city jaunt – named after the second track from Heart's 1977 album Little Queen – Love Alive 2019 Tour.. Heart is best known for their songs "Barracuda," and "Crazy On You." The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band will also be accompanied by special guest Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. They are best known for songs like "Bad Reputation" and "I Love Rock and Roll."

"I think the tour will spark some positive new energy as we rediscover some of our iconic songs and also some fan favorites," Nancy Wilson said in a news release. "Calling the tour 'Love Alive' was something [band co-leader] Ann [Wilson] and I felt instantly good about. We have always had many love-themed mottos along the way like 'Love Rules,' 'Love Wins,' 'Love is It' – and, of course, it's a very cool song as well."

Heart have been on hiatus since 2016, when a family dispute split the two sisters. Both turned to solo projects, before Ann expressed a desire to get back together last September. A month later, Nancy revealed that a "big" reunion offer had been made. By December, they were announcing a new live album.. "Both Nancy and I have stretched our wings in life these last three years," Ann said. "We've both lived and loved. We have breathed and traveled and experienced life. We come to this tour with fresh energy and oxygen.".... Two acts that prominently broke down rock’s gender barriers and stereotypes in the 1970s and ‘80s, Heart and Joan Jett have teamed up for a well-timed, meaningful tour.. While Jett and her Blackhearts have been steadily rolling along and turned in some well-received casino gigs in our areas in recent years, Heart went on hiatus for three years after sisters/co-leaders Ann and Nancy Wilson got into a rather nasty family dispute. They’ve made up and played their first show back in March.

“They’ve been playing together ever since”. Well, uh, not exactly. They had a little tiff a couple of years ago when Nancy’s husband disciplined Ann’s kids for being jerks. Each toured on their own for a while, but it just wasn’t the same. Thank goodness they are back together. Ann is the best female rock and roll vocalist ever ever ever, and Nancy’s guitar riff in “Crazy on You” is the stuff that legends are made of. I would, and have, driven hundreds and hundreds of miles to see Heart, and now we get to see them in our own back door! Rock on, baby!
