Story by Jack Foley

JOAN Jett & The Blackhearts have announced that they are special guests on Green Day’s UK stadium shows at Manchester Lancashire County Cricket Ground and London Wembley Stadium in June.

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.

As a producer, she has overseen albums by Bikini Kill, Circus Lupus, and the Vacancies, as well as the Germs’ LA punk masterpiece, GI.

Jett was even one of only two women named to Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitar players of all time. In the end, though, Joan Jett’s life has been dedicated to one goal and one goal only – rocking the hell out of every listener she can reach.

Green Day’s live dates with special guests Joan Jett & The Blackhearts are as follows:

Wednesday, June 16, 2010 – Manchester Lancashire County Cricket Ground

Saturday, June 19, 2010 – London Wembley Stadium

Tickets are on sale now at £49.50 and £42.50 for London, and £39.50 for Manchester.
