The Wilson sisters have found some heart for each other again.
After an ugly falling-out, Ann and Nancy Wilson — the singer and guitarist, respectively, who have fronted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Heart since 1973 — are putting aside their differences and reuniting for a good cause: the third annual Love Rocks NYC concert, benefiting God’s Love We Love Deliver, on March 7.
Things got real nasty between the Wilson sisters after Ann’s husband, Dean Wetter, was arrested for assaulting Nancy’s then-16-year-old twin sons in 2016. Wetter later pleaded guilty to two non-felony assault charges in the fourth degree, and then Heart announced its split in 2017.
Their Love Rocks NYC performance at the Beacon Theatre will mark the first time that the Wilson sisters will share the stage in three years. And in July, they’ll keep the reunion going when Heart launches the “Love Alive” tour with Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile, Elle King, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
But before they hit the road together again, the Wilsons are the latest additions to the star-studded Love Rocks lineup that will be raising money for the charity, which provides home-delivered meals for those living with serious illnesses.
Other performers include Robert Plant, Sheryl Crow, Hozier, bluesman Buddy Guy, rocker Grace Potter and Americana artist Lukas Nelson (son of Willie). Whoopi Goldberg and Martin Short will serve as hosts of the sold-out affair, while Paul Shaffer — David Letterman’s ace sidekick — will be featured in the house band.
