Coming to DVD, Blu-ray and CD on February 25th will be Heart's latest live collection, called, Fanatic Live From Caesars Colosseum. Ultimate Classic Rock reported that the set, which was filmed and recorded at Windsor, Ontario's Caesars Colosseum, will feature the band's classic hits along with selection from their most recent album, 2012's Fanatic.
Singer Ann Wilson spoke about the project, explaining, "This was the first time we had been able to play some of our new songs off our new Fanatic album on camera. They sounded great, and they’re powerful together. But we actually got to have them seen and heard."
She went on to describe the DVD shot in glorious HD: "It’s pretty close to being there. You’ve got the feeling of the wide stage, lights bouncing off the drums and everything chrome. You see a lot of gorgeous light and color. And we’re wearing cool clothes. It’s awesome."
The tracklisting for Heart's Fanatic Live From Caesars Colosseum is: "Fanatic," "Heartless," "What About Love," "Mashallah!," "Even It Up," "59 Crunch," "Straight On," "Dog And Butterfly," "Walking Good," "These Dreams," "Alone," "Dear Old America," Crazy On You," and "Barracuda."
Although she and sister Nancy Wilson were never ashamed of being females in a male dominated field, Ann Wilson told us that Heart never wanted to be specifically singled out for being women playing hard rock: "The thing that Nancy and I always fought the hardest against is the, y'know, gender designation of all these lists. Why girls have to be over here and guys have to be over there; why can't we all just do it together on the same footing?"
