Throughout a career that’s spanned nearly four decades, Heart has sold more than 35 million records and grabbed four Grammy nominations and a VH1 Rock Honors Lifetime Achievement award. They also have their own exhibit in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but the story of siblings Ann and Nancy Wilson might well deserve its own wing. When their debut album, Dreamboat Annie, hit shelves in 1976, the group was an anomaly in a scene populated mainly by headbanging men singing about jet-powered blow-dryers. But when radio unleashed “Magic Man,” Ann Wilson’s chain-smoking guitar riff and Nancy’s voice—alternating between folky ‘70s sweetness and a mic-singeing wail—began to change the hard-rock landscape for good.
Over the next decade, the band continued to crank out then-hits and current karaoke staples such as “Barracuda” and “Crazy On You,” often luring listeners in with sweet acoustic strumming before swinging their hard-rock wrecking ball. Their success spilled over into the ‘80s and ‘90s with monster ballads “What About Love” and “Alone.” 2010’s Red Velvet Car, a return to their two-fisted roots, sailed to the top of charts, and they’ve followed it up with the just-released Fanatic, whose title track contains one of Ann’s crunchiest riffs to date. On tour supporting the album as well as their new memoir, Kicking and Dreaming, the band soars through a setlist that spans their entire career.
Texas songwriter Alejandro Escovedo leads his band The Sensitive Boys through an opening set of free-spirited country-rock primed in thinking-man’s punk. His latest album, Big Station, packs big hooks and intricate rhythms around tales of desperate souls near the Mexican border, creating a blend that AllMusic calls “consistently great fun” while balancing “ambition and poetry.”
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel from the days before movies were beamed from computers into audiences' brains.
