Ann Wilson Announces Solo EP, Adds Tour Dates
Wilson's solo band, which she's called the Ann Wilson Thing, now has its own Facebook page, where she's been posting updates about the project. In a July 13 note, she told fans, "I already am honored to sing for Heart, and now I get the opportunity to stretch out on my own and see what it can bring. I am blessed to have these magical opportunities to let my soul sing out."
That was followed on July 17 with a post announcing her new solo EP, which is in the works for an August release. No details have been made public yet — but in the meantime, Wilson's been busy adding stops to her upcoming tour with the Thing.
When the tour was announced, only two shows had been confirmed, both for October in Annapolis, Md; as of this writing, they've been joined by a handful of dates starting in late September and continuing through mid-October. According to ABC News Radio, "The concerts will feature Ann singing solo material, select cover tunes and perhaps a few Heart classics too. Some of the shows will feature guest performers. Alison Krauss is confirmed to appear at the Nashville gig." Check out the newly expanded list of shows below.
