Review From Masslive.com
If rock band Heart wants to stack the deck in favor of the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame vote, they need only send a highlight reel of their Saturday night performance at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods.
True, their more than 35-year career as chart-topping rock goddesses should suffice for evidence of their legacy, influence, and continued relevance but let�s remember; they were nominated last year and didn�t get in to the club.
Heart, led by singer Ann Wilson and her sister, the guitar thrashing Nancy, tore through a 90-minute set at the casino theater, thrilling a sold out crowd with hits from the past and churning, chugging rock songs from their just released �Fanatic� album.
Backed by guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, the Wilsons made a case for the title of best female led rock group. Ever. Thank you Janis, Grace, Stevie, Chrissie�you�ve all been great. But you haven�t done it for as long or as loud as the women in Heart.
This band from Seattle broke out in 1976. Their 2010 release �Red Velvet Car� landed on Billboards Top Ten album chart.
The band opened with the title track from the new release and then moved to a classic cut with �Heartless.� Ann Wilson reached the top of her considerable range on �What About Love,� earning the first of several ovations.
Nancy Wilson shared vocals on another new song �59 Crunch� and banged out bar chords like she was still in a bar band, snapping strings and feeding back.
After �Straight On,� they went to acoustic guitars for �Dog and Butterfly� and fast-forwarded again to a new song �Walking Good,� which features Sarah McLachlan on the recorded version.
The absolute show-stopping moment came with Ann Wilson belting out �Alone� hitting awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping notes that again brought the crowd to its feet.
Nancy Wilson�s guitars owned the rest of the set, first with the acoustic, picking her way through the intro that would become the epic �Crazy On You,� followed by the crunching electric chords that would serve as the foundation of the set-closing �Barracuda.�
Heart rarely plays a set without paying tribute to Led Zeppelin and this night was no exception as the group encored first with their own breakout hit �Magic Man,� followed by a cover of �Misty Mountain Hop.�
