Ann & Nancy Wilson are back on speaking terms- could Heart be getting back together?
Chances of a Heart reunion are looking good! We found out recently that Ann & Nancy Wilson were back on speaking terms– no small feat considering their family drama.
Nancy Wilson said a “big offer” had been extended to the band for a reunion tour in 2019, and that the signs of it taking place are looking good. Heart has been on hiatus since 2016, after Ann’s husband Dean assaulted Nancy’s 16-year old twin sons backstage after a concert. Dean plead guilty to assault with a probational condition of not having contact with his nephews.
“I’ve gotta say, it’s looking really good for a Heart reunion tour,” Nancy told the Let There Be Talk podcast. “There’s a big offer up there on the table. Me and Ann are talking, so we’ll keep talking.”
Asked about who had opened communications between them, she replied, “I’ve been sort of [trying] for a while, but she was kind of busy and, I think, scared to talk. And I kind of said, ‘I’m not ever gonna confront you about anything, but there is this huge offer on the table, so we should talk – just the two of us.’ So we’re in that process right now. It’s kind of exciting.”
“There was a family drama that was highly uncalled for and unnecessary and hurtful,” Nancy said in the new interview, “and it was just one of those things that takes time to get past. So, a couple of years have gone by. It’s not anything that Ann ever did wrong, or I ever did wrong, but it’s just one of those family dramas that just happened, and it just kind of poisoned the atmosphere for a while there. So it’s good. I’ve had a real positive feeling about now that I’m communicating directly more with Ann.”

Nancy has been keeping busy with her new band Roadcase Royale and was interviewed for the recent documentary Turn It Up! which celebrates the electric guitar and artists who rock them. Ann Wilson’s latest album Immortal was recently released following her collection of cover songs titled Songs for the Living Vol. 1 with songs from Amy Winehouse, Bowie, Tom Petty, The Eagles, and more.
