Singer makes announcement during Nashville concert

Ann Wilson, the lead singer half of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo Heart, has revealed that she is taping for an upcoming episode of the PBS anthology series, Great Performances.

Wilson made the announcement while on stage with her band Tripsitter at Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville tonight (Tues, July 25th). Reporter Matt Bailey was attending the show and noticed the five camera setup inside the venue. A short while later, Wilson explained their presence. No date is set for the broadcast as of yet.

Wilson continues her tour through the fall with stops in Dallas, Tulsa, San Diego and others before wrapping October 16th in Seattle.

Widely praised among the greatest singers in the history of rock, Wilson’s extraordinarily powerful voice has been sending chills down her audience’s collective spine for over five decades, earning record sales of more than 35 million, an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award.

Her latest album, Fierce Bliss, was released April 29, 2022 via Silver Lining Music. It’s not just an album for fans of Ann Wilson and Heart, it is an album for everyone seeking a lavish ticket out of the sharp edges of an increasingly fraught society. The album also marks perhaps the first time in her illustrious career that she has truly felt the wind in her wings, something which might seem a strange statement given her pioneering history. To cap it all, the album artwork comes from the mind and hands of celebrated fantasy artist Roger Dean, who aside from his work in fantasy art is also renowned for his Yes sleeve artwork.

Since it premiered in 1972 on PBS, Great Performances is a preeminent performing arts series that has provided an unparalleled showcase of the best in all genres of the performing arts, serving as America’s most prestigious and enduring broadcaster of cultural programming. Throughout its 50 years, Great Performances has earned 67 Emmy Awards and six George Foster Peabody Awards.
