Rock and roll just wouldn’t be the same without Joan Jett. After more than thirty years of crushing gender-specific stereotypes, the “Bad Reputation” singer continues to push forward in the music industry with scores of top 40 hits and platinum and gold albums. In addition to her commercial success, the raspy-voiced front woman earned a spot in rock history in 1980 when she became the first female artist to own and operate a record label, Blackheart Records. Now on tour, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts once again stop by the Pacific Amphitheatre, where hundreds of buzzed, loyal fans can gleefully sing along to “I Hate Myself For Loving You.”
