Heart to Issue First Concert Film With an Orchestra, ‘Live at Royal Albert Hall’
Heart will release their first-ever concert film with a full orchestra later this year. Due across multiple formats on Dec. 2, Live at Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra also commemorates the band's initial appearance at that legendary London venue.
Heart touches on a number of hits, including "Barracuda," "What About Love," "Magic Man" and others, even as the strings add depth and epic scale to favorites and reinterpreted tracks from Beautiful Broken, their most recent album.
"The veteran rockers Heart pulled off the neat trick of being both a fan-friendly heritage act and a band unafraid to innovate," The Times of London enthused. This evening's encore included a cover of "No Quarter" from Heart's old heroes Led Zeppelin.
Live at Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, compact disc and digital formats. Preorders are already underway. A complete track listing is below.
Nancy and Ann Wilson are joined by Ben Smith, a member of Heart since 1995, along with newer band recruits Craig Bartock, Dan Rothchild and Chris Joiner; the Royal Philharmonic was conducted by Nick Davies. Heart is interviewed as a bonus feature for this release.
