Heart is preparing their Love Alive Tour summer tour with Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlisle, and guitarist Nancy Wilson thinks touring with other female acts is long overdue, recently saying in a radio interview that the band is "really excited. For all the times we've avoided being lumped in with other women - I just think it's time. It's finally time to do that."
Heart isn't trying to separate the sexes while on stage, saying that while the artists supporting the tour are women that the artists "all have men in their bands. We aren't trying to isolate women. But there are a whole bunch of 'em that are really good."
Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson returned together to the stage for the first time in three years recently to perform at NY's Beacon Theater.
