Heart belter Ann Wilson has added an Atlanta show to the second leg of her solo tour.

The powerhouse voice behind such gems as “Crazy on You” and “Alone” will play the Buckhead Theatre at 7:30 p.m. June 6.

Tickets, priced at $55 and $75, will go on sale at 10 a.m. March 31 via the venue box office, www.ticketmaster.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000.

Wilson said that on the "Ann Wilson of Heart" tour fans can expect, “A beautiful, classy set with an elegant, artistic production…The music will be a mix of songs that have powered my life; iconic soul stirring covers, songs from my years of solo work and the unforgettable songs of Heart.” The name for the upcoming tour, she added, “is to give people a point of recognition; to help people understand who I am and where I came from.”

Wilson, who is currently on tour through early April, will be joined by guitarist Craig Bartock (a member of Heart who also played in Wilson’s other project, the Ann Wilson Thing, for two years); bassist Andy Stoller (also an Ann Wilson Thing member); and drummer Denny Fonghesier (a member of Heart in the 1990s).
