Joan Jett & the Blackhearts heated up an now-sunlight-kissed crowd at Atlanta’s Truist Park on the first night of the lengthy-awaited Stadium Tour, a lineup which also featured Motley Crue, Def Leppard and Poison.
Jett began her set with “Target of Circumstance,” the substantial octane album slice from her 1981 LP I Appreciate Rock ‘n Roll. From there, she introduced into “Cherry Bomb,” one of two songs in the set from her several years in the Runaways.
Other efficiency highlights involved some of Jett’s renowned addresses, such as renditions of “Light-weight of Day” (Bruce Springsteen), “Day-to-day Individuals” (Sly & the Relatives Stone) and “Crimson & Clover” (Tommy James & the Shondells).

The Stadium Tour has been a extensive time coming. Initially scheduled for summer season 2020, the trek was postponed to start with to 2021, and in the long run to 2022 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the interim, Jett unveiled her 1st-ever acoustic album, Changeup, showcasing new renditions of many of her most common music. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer only sent a single unplugged track in the course of her set — “(I’m Gonna) Run Absent” — and admitted it felt a very little unusual to perform acoustically.
Jett also not too long ago designed headlines by buying and selling barbs with Ted Nugent, who criticized her inclusion on Rolling Stone‘s 2003 list of the 100 finest guitarists (a list that has since been up-to-date a lot more than the moment). When questioned about Nugent’s complaints, Jett told NME, “Properly, which is just normal – it truly is what I’ve dealt with my full lifestyle, staying prepared off. Ted Nugent has to dwell with becoming Ted Nugent. He has to be in that system, so that is punishment adequate.”
Jett, meanwhile, will get to enjoy the advantages of the Stadium Tour for the relaxation of the summer season. The trek will traverse North The us ahead of wrapping on Sept. 9 in Las Vegas.
