PEORIA CIVIC CENTER ARENA

As part of their 25th anniversary, 95.5 GLO presents American rock band HEART in the Peoria Civic Center Arena on Thursday, October 10 at 7:00 pm. This is part of the group’s Love Alive Tour. British singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas will be the opener for the show.

When women stand up for themselves, show up, and speak out, change occurs time and time again, whether in politics, culture, entertainment, or music. There might be no women stronger--and louder--than the legendary ladies of HEART. Formed by sisters ANN and NANCY WILSON, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame®-inducted group not only pioneered the female-fronted rock band, for all intents and purposes, but they also soundtracked four decades and counting. Throughout this time, the band sold over 35 million records, garnered four GRAMMY®Award nominations, landed ten Top 10 albums, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and achieved “the longest span of top-10 albums on the Billboard charts by a female-led band.

ANN and NANCY were both born in California and raised in Washington state and even early on, it was obvious that music would be their destiny. By ten-years-old, NANCY positioned herself as a future guitar virtuoso as ANN developed a bold, bluesy alto voice informed by an intense passion for the likes of Led Zeppelin. They formally become HEART in 1974 and transformed into a Pacific Northwest favorite in the process.

By 1975, they had recorded their seminal debut Dreamboat Annie. Bordering rock and heavy metal fastened with folk songcraft, the platinum breakthrough spent 100 weeks on the charts and spawned a string of smashes such as “Magic Man,” “Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child),” and “Crazy On You.” Signature hit “Barracuda” bared its teeth on the triple-platinum 1977 epic Little Queen. As the musicians sold out shows worldwide and continued their multiplatinum reign on MagazineDog & Butterfly, and Greatest Hits Live, they recorded the definitive self-titledHeart in 1985--ten years removed from Dreamboat Annie. Vaulting to superstar status, Heart bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, went quintuple-platinum, earned a GRAMMY® Award nomination, and yielded “If Looks Could Kill,” “What About Love,” “Never,” and “These Dreams,” which captured the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, which features NANCY on lead vocals. 

Tickets for the Peoria show go on sale Friday, July 12at 10:00 am.  Tickets ranging from $29.50 to $350, can be purchased on www.ticketmaster.com or in-person at the Toyota Box Office, located inside the Peoria Civic Center.
