Heart came by the Xfinity Center last week on their tour with Sheryl Crow and Elle King. The Center was packed, and given the longevity of the band, the ages ranged from old fans, to those that weren’t yet born when the band was formed in 1974.
Elle King was up first and put on a great, but short, set. She played 7, including my personal favorite and her megahit Ex’s & Oh’s. She also brought out her banjo during Good To Be a Man, which I thought was pretty cool.
Sheryl Crow was up next and she was amazing. She played a large selection of her hits including A Change Would Do You Good, If It Makes You Happy, and Strong Enough. She was extremely energetic on the stage, having fun moving around and interacting with the other band members. And, she’s still gorgeous.
Heart closed up the night. They played quite a few of their hits, including Magic Man, Crazy on You, and Barracuda. However, a good third of the set was covers from other bands, including Yes, Gladys Knight, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin. They even had a little laser show during Floyd’s Comfortably Numb. Pretty cool.
The crowd was signing along and dancing throughout the entire night. Great night of music. The tour continues through October. You can check to see if they are coming to your town here.
