Joan Jett to play Starlight Kansas City
Each spring and summer, Starlight welcomes award-winning artists from a wide range of genres to its stage – and this year will be no exception.
Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she is 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."
Joan is playing on the same bill as Cheap Trick, undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974 and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as "I Want You To Want Me," "Dream Police," and "Surrender" have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. Cheap Trick was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2016.
