Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
30 years ago today, Heart played the Civic Center. On June 26, 1987, the lovely Wilson sisters returned to Portland for the 6th time. After moving to their new label Capitol Records in 1985, they released the album Heart. This was definitely the album to put them back on top, going number one and selling five million copies. The follow-up album Bad Animals was released in May of ’87 and went all the way to number 2. Whitney Houston’s, Whitney held the top spot. The new power ballad Alone was in heavy rotation on the Blimp by the time they arrived at the CCCC. Heart’s Bad Animals went on to sell over 3 million copies in the US.
