Heart at The Ryman

Here are three reasons to see Heart at The Ryman: “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man” and “Barracuda.” Need another? Ann Wilson can still sing her ass off. Even Heart’s biggest detractors must admit that the band’s rendition of the venerable “Love Hurts” contains one of the greatest lead vocals ever recorded. For more than 35 years, the Wilson sisters have had the distinction of being Seattle’s original riot grrrls, wielding no-holds-barred rockers like those mentioned above to smash rock radio’s glass ceiling. On the other hand, the ‘80s monster ballads “What About Love,” “These Dreams” and “Alone” remain a low point even of the Decade of Starship. But we’ll let that go. We’ll even forgive Nancy Wilson for marrying Almost Famous director Cameron Crowe.
