If Ann and Nancy Wilson could pass for being 40, how is it possible that it's been nearly that many years since the siblings showed the world just how hard women could rock? Yet it's true.

As the rock outfit Heart, their debut album, "Dreamboat Annie," was released in 1976, spawning the hits "Magic Man," "Crazy on You" as well as the title track. From there, they turned the rock world upside down with "Barracuda," "Straight On," "Alone" and "What About Love," to just name a few.

Today, those classics still carry all the fire, punch and emotion that they did decades ago as evident on Heart's current tour, which stops Tuesday at Artpark in Lewiston. There's more to come for Heart fans: The Wilson's release their memoir "Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock and Roll" on Sept. 18 and follow that up with the band's 14th studio disc, "Fanatic," arriving Oct. 2.

Tuesday's show starts at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance, $10 if you buy them Sunday through Tuesday (box office, Tickets.com).
