Heart have announced a summer U.S. tour, “Love Alive,” their first outing in three years. The 39-city jaunt kicks off Tuesday, July 9 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO and wraps September 9 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

The band will be joined at select stops by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile. Along appearing are Elle King and Lucie Silvas.

Said Heart guitarist and singer Nancy Wilson, “I think this year is a good year to show the collective impact of some powerful women in music. We would usually steer clear of the female-centric concept, but in the light of current events it seems like the right statement at the right time."

Added singer Ann Wilson, “Sheryl and Joan we have known for a long time. We have hung out and appreciated each other's music onstage and off. Brandi Carlile is a fresh and authentic artist that we both love....and Elle King is my favorite new artist. She has so much soul and attitude! We are so thrilled to host all these artists on the ‘Love Alive’ tour.”

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 15 at 10:00 AM local time at LiveNation.com

Additionally, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Wednesday, February 13  at 10:00 AM local time until Thursday, February 14 at 10:00 PM local time through Citi's Private Pass program. For complete pre-sale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

Regarding the deep catalog of songs the band will pull form on the upcoming tour, Ann said: “It feels good to see people's eyes light up when we play one of the classic songs they know and love. I always wonder how a song like ‘Crazy On You’ hits the mind and soul of a 17-year-old in 2019...they seem to be as into it live as everyone else. When I think of the connection we continue to have with our very diverse audience, I am deeply grateful and always amazed!”

Added Nancy: “It's an incredible feeling and a great compliment to see our loyal fans and the new generation of Heart fans at the shows. It speaks to the songs as well as giving a bigger sense of history to the younger ones. It's authentic live music with no added prerecorded or auto tuned vocals or tracks blended in. No bells or whistles, smoke or mirrors. I think in many ways that's a whole new thing for young kids who love music and they know the difference and appreciate it. It's completely real.”
