“Even It Up – Gimme Shelter” live by Heart

It’s been a few days and I am still not over the epic performance from Heart that I witnessed on August 3, 2010. In addition to playing my dream set list, the Wilson sisters sounded and looked amazing. We were treated to generous helpings of their catalog past and present, plus a few covers were thrown in. In the video you are about to see, Heart plays the opening notes to “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones, goes straight into their song “Even It Up,” and then midway through the song, Ann Wilson starts singing the refrain “Rape – Murder – Is just a shot away” from “Gimme Shelter.” She sings the s–t out of it and this moment was one of many highlights from a really great show.
