Heart Concert Review, Austin, TX, October 16, 2016
Heart played to a sold out crowd last night in Austin at my favorite venue, The Moody Theater at ACL Live.
It was a good set but seemed to be over as fast as it had begun. The Wilson sisters sounded great and the backing band was flawless. It was a nice surprise to hear Mistral Wind from Dog and Butterfly. Easily the highlight of the show for me. Having seen the setlist from a few nights before, I knew that they were going to play 3 Led Zeppelin songs as their encore and I had no interest in that, so we left just as No Quarter had started.
Throughout the show I couldn’t help but think about my Aunt Dianne who died earlier this year. She and her sister, my Aunt Debbie, were big Heart fans and the trips to Pennsylvania sitting in Grandma’s listening to their Heart records with my cousins are some really special memories.
Short set for that price and I’m not sure I’d go see them again to be honest unless they started doing full album shows. I’d love to see them do all of Dog and Butterfly or Dreamboat Annie.
