Heart: Live in Atlantic City

October 23, 2018 // 0 Comments

Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide. Over the group’s four-decade history, it has had three primary lineups, with the constant center of the group since 1973 being sisters Ann Wilson (lead singer) and Nancy Wilson (guitarist). Heart rose to fame in the mid-1970s with music influenced by hard rock and heavy metal,[1] as well as folk music.
