Heart/ Cheap Trick/ Joan Jett – Auburn WA : August 26th 2016

Great line-up tonight at the White River Amphitheater with Cheap Trick opening the show, followed by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and the closing the night was Heart.

Although I have seen all of these bands many times, it was a real treat to see them all at the same time, and they all had fairly decent sets, playing over an hour each.

They all sounded great and put on stellar performances, although I think if I had to rank them tonight, I would have to say that Joan Jett was the best, followed by Cheap Trick…It seemed as though Heart just wasn’t with it tonight with both Ann and Nancy sounding a little tired.

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts – Snoqualmie: March 16 2014

Toni and I went to see Joan Jett and the Blackhearts perform at the Snoqualmie Casino tonight. This was the first time that we have been to this venue, and it was actually quite nice. It is probably the most convenient location for us as it is less than 20 miles from our house.

I have to say, that this was by far one of the best Rock shows I have seen in a long time. Joan Jett put on an absolutely incredible show. It was relatively short, but the most densely packed with hit after hit hour and half worth of raspy, crunchy, rough cut rock & roll anyone should have the pleasure to experience on a Sunday night.

Of course she came out and played her hits like “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll“, “Crimson and Clover“, “I Hate Myself for Loving You“, “Do You Wanna Touch Me“, and “Bad Reputation“, but also many songs from her new album UnvarnishedTMI“, “Soulmates to Strangers“, “Hard to Grow Up” and “Fragile” . Her sound on this new albumin is so classic Joan Jett, I just love how she can still make music that sounds so 70’s/80’s and make it so current and relevant.

We see her perform again at the Golden Gods Awards this coming April 23rd in LA. The kids will have a chance to see her, and I know they will be as blown away as Toni and I were.
