HEART‘s Ann Wilson has once again denied that the lineup of the upcoming “Love Alive” summer tour is the result of the wave of female empowerment sweeping through the nation right now.
“We just chose the best artists,” she told SiriusXM‘s Jim Shearer at this past Thursday’s (March 7) “Love Rocks NYC” all-star benefit at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. “They happen to be women. They all have men in their bands. I mean, it isn’t like we’re trying to isolate women. But, as it turns out, there’s a whole bunch of ’em that are really good.”
Asked how excited she is about the upcoming trek, Nancy Wilson said: “Really excited. I think for all the times we’ve avoided being lumped in with other women, I just think it’s time — it’s finally time to do that.”
