Heart was incredible last night in Key Arena. Ann Wilson is an absolute vocal-lordess powerhouse. One of the all time – all time greats. Nancy Wilson, also great. Heart ended their set by playing a handful of Zeppelin songs, and whoa, Heart can play the ever-living-SHIT out of some Zeppelin. Robert Plant’s vocals sit right in Ann's Super Woman wheelhouse range. She hit it and then some. Jason Bonham was wheeled out with his kit (and gong), banging for Bonham progeny. Then for “Stairway”, out came Seattle’s own Total Experience Gospel Choir, all in Bonham hats. Go to the 6:45 mark for Ann and choir having at it. I got chills. “Rain Song” and “Kashmir” were tops. And Ann and Nancy going sisterly on “Battle of Evermore. ” DAMN. If you’re a Heart/Zeppelin fan, this was mammoth. Or if you’re just a fan of amazing vocalists, this was a definite treat. Ann Wilson, Ann Wilson, Ann Wilson.
Here is an 8-minute Heart-playing-Zeppelin montage. In it, bits of “Battle Of Evermore,” “Misty Mountain Hop,” “Immigrant Song,” “Rain Song,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway to Heaven.”
