DVD Review| Heart: Night At Sky Church
Heart will always be recognized as one of the most iconic female rock bands of all-time. After an array of changes over the years, band members Ann and Nancy Wilson are the only constant members of the group that remain. The band rose to fame in the 1970s and despite a few breaks here and there, Heart has remained in the hearts of many fans.
Right off the heels of their newly released album, Red Velvet Car (2010), Heart has released a concert DVD featuring some of their most memorable songs and some new ones as well. That DVD is called Night At Sky Church and the ladies do a wonderful job of showing its audience what real music sounds like.
The DVD starts out with old footage spanning the band’s career and quickly segues into their first performance.
Some of the DVD’s highlights include Ann Wilson mesmerizing flute playing during, “Love Alive,” Grammy Award-winning artist Alison Kraus performing with the band, Nancy Wilson’s jamming guitar solo and the band’s performances of “These Dreams,” “What About Love,” & “Alone.”
Unlike some other concert DVDs, Night At Sky Church is weighed down with long intervals, introductions and monologues. The sisters keep viewers intrigued by jumping into each song without skipping a single beat.
Viewers will be treated to 14 songs (both old and new), 2 encore performances and 2 bonus tracks.
Night At Sky Church was filmed live on March 5, 2010 in Seattle. Ann and Nancy Wilson sound just as great as they did when they first entered the music industry. This concert DVD does a superb job of showcasing the ladies’ stellar showmanship and vocals. The vocals are so clear and crisp, that it’s hard to believe the concert was actually filmed live.
Night At Sky Church is a wonderful trip down memory lane for Heart lovers. Heart fans can purchased the DVD/Blu-ray disc via Amazon.com or by visiting www.Heart-Music.com.
Heart just finished their highly acclaimed 2011 Canadian tour (The Zamboni Tour). Heart is slated to embark on a 2011 summer tour co-headlining with Def Leppard.
