Heart brought the heat to a rainy, sold out St. Augustine Amphitheater Saturday night. Opening the show with their iconic Barracuda, sisters Anne and Nancy Wilson had the audience on their feet and forgetting about the wet weather. Following up with Heartless and What About Love, Heart proved that classic rock is ageless, as are the Wilson sisters. Anne continues to belt out pitch perfect notes while Nancy still amazes with her guitar riffs and boundless energy.
Playing many of their never forgotten songs such as Magic Man, Dreamboat Annie, Kick It Out, Heaven and These Dreams, Heart had the crowd singing along, dancing in the aisles and begging for more, more, more.
Providing a great backdrop for the Wilson sisters were Ben Smith, drums; Debbie Shair, keyboard; Dan Rothchild, bass guitar; and Craig Bartock, lead guitarist, who amazed with several solos.
Heart closed their set with the ever popular Crazy on You to thunderous applause, foot stomping, whistles and demands for them to return to the stage. Returning to the stage, Heart performed a three song encore of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song and No Quarter, and finally their own Misty Mountain Hop.
Heart is still as vibrant and electrifying today as they were in the 70s, 80s and 90s and brought a world class concert to St. Augustine Amphitheater.
To open the show, The lovely Brynn Marie warmed up the crowd to rave reviews. You can tell by the way the crowd was reacting to her on stage that she made many new fans by the sound of the applause she got at the end of each song. Brynn was a breath of fresh air, as her vocal cut through the amphitheater rainy air. She captivated the crowd with free spirit and easy going attitude, but most of all, a the voice to back up.
