Ann and Nancy Wilson last played Atlanta in 2016 for a show at Chastain Park Amphitheatre. Serious family issues occurred during that “Rock Hall Three for All” run and the sisters completed the tour with many thinking it would be their last.

Ann Wilson played two solo dates in Atlanta since then – most recently in August at Chastain with Paul Rodgers and Jeff Beck – while Nancy Wilson embarked on the side project Roadcase Royale, with New Power Generation’s Liv Warfield. The band’s 2017 tour opening for Bob Seger was scrapped when Seger canceled the dates due to a health emergency.

In a June 2017 interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ann Wilson indicated that she and Nancy were already reconciling.

“The family strife thing is long past. It resonated longer in the press than it needed to. Nancy and I are on an artistic walkabout now,” she said.
