The concert featuring Nancy Wilson of Heart with the Seattle Symphony is being rescheduled from July 9 to October 30. The decision to postpone the performance was made in response to increasing inquiries regarding larger in-person audiences, the feasibility of which is dampened by current restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic. Wilson, who co-founded her iconic band in Seattle and now returns as a soloist, is passionate about her debut project, and the Symphony looks forward to welcoming more music fans to experience the performance in person at Benaroya Hall.
“I want this concert to be a celebration for all my fans to be able to attend,” says Wilson. “We can’t gather here for a great night like that right now — but we are so close to the end of this terrible pandemic. My hope is to share this music and my performance alongside the orchestra with as many people as possible. These extra months will make all the difference and give us a chance to get together and let go of the tough times we’ve had.”
The Seattle Symphony’s concert with Nancy Wilson will feature original arrangements of Wilson’s newest songs from her debut solo album, You and Me, as well as hits from Heart’s extensive catalog on Saturday, October 30, 2021, at 8 p.m. Tickets to the rescheduled show will be put on-sale mid-July; more information to come.
Ticketholders for either the in-person or livestreamed concert on Seattle Symphony Live will receive an email regarding all options available and can contact the Seattle Symphony Ticket Office by emailing [email protected] or calling 206.215.4790 for more information.

Rock icon Nancy Wilson (co-founder of the band Heart) teams up with the Seattle Symphony for a highly anticipated evening of rock ‘n’ roll on the Benaroya Hall stage. The show will include beloved fan favorites like “Barracuda,” “These Dreams” and “Crazy on You,” alongside original tracks from her brand-new solo album, You and Me. This is Wilson’s first solo album, and it gives her a new platform to nurture a distinctly different artist voice, independent of the Heart sound that has largely defined her decades-long career.
