Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart will appear at the Calvert Marine Museum’s PNC Waterside Pavilion on Saturday, May 23. Heart first showed the world that women can rock when their band stormed the charts in the ‘70’s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. The Wilson sisters not only lead the band, but wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80’s and ‘90’s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters.
Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see Heart perform live in Solomons! Tickets are $49 for reserved seats and $59 for premium seats (additional fees apply) and go on sale to members of the Calvert Marine Museum on Tuesday, March 17 at 10:00 a.m. If you are not a member of the museum and would like an opportunity to buy the best seats in the house, visit www.calvertmarinemuseum.com or call 410-326-2042, ext. 16 to get signed up before tickets go on sale.

As individuals, the Wilson sisters have also achieved significant success. Ann sang on songs that were both chart successes and motion picture themes, like “Almost Paradise” from Footloose, “Best Man in the World” from The Golden Child, and “Surrender to Me” from Tequila Sunrise, while Nancy composed and performed the scores to a half dozen motion pictures including the award winning “Jerry Maguire” and “Almost Famous.” Along the way, music by Ann and Nancy Wilson and their band Heart sold more than 35 million albums, sold out arenas worldwide, and found their way into the soundtrack of American life through radio, motion pictures, television, and associations with branded sponsors. Today, songs made famous by Heart are heard in every aspect of contemporary culture.
