Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she's had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics "Bad Reputation," "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You," and "Crimson and Clover." She sits at the head of her own independent label, Blackheart Records. Jett has acted in movies including 1987's Light of Day, and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, The Rocky Horror Show, and has appeared in numerous television shows.
Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. A version of “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was reworked for NBC’s Sunday Night Football theme song, Waiting All Day for Sunday Night”, and was performed for 9 seasons by the likes of Pink, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood. Her music is heard in countless films and TV shows including Easy – A, Kick Ass, The Runaways, Shrek, Baby Mama, and many more.
“Joan Jett has never been concerned about a Bad Reputation and that trailblazing attitude will surely deliver a powerful performance of her greatest hits as well as new releases,” stated Jim Wise, FireKeepers VP of Marketing. “Get ready to rock the night away in an adrenalin-filled, intimate setting.”
