Love Alive, The Ultimate Heart Tribute, is coming to the Athens Theatre in DeLand on Saturday, Sept. 11!

Seattle-based Heart is undeniably a blueprint band in hard rock, as well as a trailblazer in the arena of female-fronted rock. Influenced by folk, hard rock and heavy metal, Heart has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide. The band has also charted 10 albums over a four-decade span, had 20 top-40 singles, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

The band has always been led by the sister-pioneers Ann and Nancy Wilson, who inspired a gender revolution in music. No other tribute act can bring the iconic rock hits of Ann and Nancy and Heart to life like Love Alive, the No. 1 Heart tribute band in the Southeast.

Like Heart, Love Alive is fronted by two extraordinarily talented ladies. Keturah is one of the very few people on the planet who can do justice to Ann Wilson’s soaring, explosive vocals, and JD faithfully executes the near-impossible tasks required to re-create Nancy Wilson’s lead and backing vocals, electric and acoustic guitar work, and signature moves onstage.

This six-piece band has gone to great lengths to provide the most accurate, authentic and energetic performance of this great music you will find anywhere in the nation. Both sonically and visually, Love Alive is a dead ringer for Heart when performing such hits as “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You,” “Alone,” “Magic Man,” “These Dreams” and other fine songs.

Love Alive also performs absolutely stunning renditions of songs frequently covered by Heart, including “Stairway to Heaven” (Led Zeppelin) and “Love Reign O’er Me” (The Who).

Love Alive will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, at the historic Athens Theatre, 124 N. Florida Ave. in Downtown DeLand.

Tickets prices are $35 for preferred reserved seating (first six rows orchestra, and two rows center balcony), and $30 for general reserved seating. A $3-per-ticket processing charge and 6.5-percent sales tax will be added to each purchase.

All tickets will be available online at the Athens Theatre website at, or by calling the box office at 386-736-1500. Box-office hours are 1-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 1 1/2 hours before live performances.
