Heart’s Christmas Concert Coming to Your TV
If all you want for Christmas is two Wilson sisters singing with a bunch of famous friends, you’re going to love what Heart has in store for you on Dec. 25.
Ann and Nancy Wilson will lead the band back to its Seattle hometown for ‘Heart & Friends: Home for the Holidays,’ a Christmas Day special promising a “once-in-a-lifetime” event that will feature “an array of holiday songs written by Joni Mitchell, Harry Nilsson, Bob Dylan and Sammy Hagar … as well as some of Heart’s favorite songs.” Enthused Ann Wilson in a press release, “We are thrilled and delighted to be joined by our band and our friends onstage to ring in the holiday season for our fans everywhere.”
Those “friends” include Hagar, Shawn Colvin, Richard Marx and Pat Monahan from Train, all of whom are scheduled to join Heart onstage at the Benaroya Symphony Concert Hall. Marx will be on hand to reprise his vocal cameo in ‘All Through The Night,’ one of two new holiday recordings Heart recently released, and the whole show will be broadcast at 8 PM EST on AXS, the television network that recently aired specials dedicated to Cheap Trick and Kiss.
“We couldn’t have passed up this wonderful opportunity to celebrate the season with two of the most talented rock ‘n roll artists ever, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart,” explained AXS TV Founder Mark Cuban. “Having Shawn Colvin, Sammy Hagar, Richard Marx and Pat Monahan join them for this holiday special makes it the perfect gift for our audience to enjoy on Christmas night.”
