Joan Jett and the Blackhearts come to Tampa
Events, People

Tampa, FL -- Iconic rock and roll innovator Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will perform in the new Hard Rock Cafe Tampa at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on July 13 at 10 p.m.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator and a visionary.  As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, 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."

Jett was one of only two women named to Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest guitar players of all time.

Since co-founding the Runaways, the pioneering all-girl punk quintet, at age 15, Jett's determination and drive have kept her in the public eye.  Her profile skyrocketed, yet, again, with the recent release of the feature film of the same name based on lead singer Cherie Currie's book Neon Angel.  Jett served as an executive producer on the film.

Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. Faith Hill sings "I Hate Myself for Loving You" as the theme for NBC's Sunday Night Football and "Bad Reputation" was the theme song for the “Hit Girl” heroine of the hit film, Kick Ass.  Her cover of "Love is All Around" (the theme song of The Mary Tyler Moore Show) became an anthem in women's sports and was used by the NCAA to promote the Women's Final Four. Jett supplied theme songs for the ESPN X-Games premiere and has contributed music to all of their games since.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the hit “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” Joan Jett and the Blackhearts released the certified platinum-selling album on 180-gram clear vinyl on April 16.

The exclusive Record Store Day reissue is a one-time pressing with only 1,000 copies available. The limited edition LP includes a download card of the entire album recorded at a 320 bit rate for optimal sound quality.

Tickets cost $45 and are available at the Hard Rock Store and all Ticketmaster outlets. General admission, standing room only.

Doors open one hour prior to show start time. For bottle service call the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa at 813-627-7755. Must be 21 years of age or older.
