The history behind this recording began in 2012, which was a year of major achievements for Heart. In addition to Ann and Nancy’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and news that they had been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the year was filed with musical accomplishments. Ann and Nancy Wilson combed their archives for a definitive four CD box set release in the early part of the year, and in the fall of 2012, released their Fanatic album to strong critical and fan acclaim. To support the release of Fanatic, the band embarked upon a major North American headline tour, which ended with a magnificent performance at Caesars Colosseum in Windsor, Ontario, which was filmed by AXS-TV. Heart will be performing shows in February, March and April, 2014 as a continuation of the Fanatic tour.“Heart is one of my personal favorites,” said Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino, “and it is more than a pleasure to have them joining the Frontiers family. We look forward to a great partnership together!”
Heart has long been associated with Canada having broken out in Vancouver in 1976 with the release of Dreamboat Annie and their return to Canada for the Fanatic tour was greeted with the kind of enthusiasm the Canadians save for their own. Ben Mink, who produced the Fanatic CD and is another great Canadian musician, joined Ann and Nancy on stage at Windsor, playing fiddle and leading a string ensemble.
In addition to songs from the Fanatic album which were performed for the first time for the television viewing audience, Fanatic Live From Caesars Colosseum also showcases many of Heart's classic hits including 'Barracuda', 'Crazy on You', 'These Dreams', 'Alone', 'What About Love' and many more.
