They’ve still got it because they still want it. Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, and their backing band, owned the stage. Ann twirled around in a red tunic with swirling sleeves; Nancy did jump kicks with guitar in hand. But the siblings’ voices, when joined together in harmony, still commanded the most attention. Ann’s wails were breathtaking; Nancy’s guitar-playing was superb. During their encore of Led Zeppelin covers (“Immigrant Song,” “No Quarter,” “Misty Mountain Hop”), Ann did Robert Plant better than Plant does himself.
When introducing the song “Bebe le Strange,” Ann explained how, amid the sexism of the music world, “We made our own parallel rock universe.” This night—the third in a three-date Vegas run—proved that their rock universe is still a great place to be.
Missed Heart this time around? See the band play House of Blues again on Nov. 19-21.
