Fair to Close Out Rocking to Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
Published on April 21, 2014 at 1:54 p.m.
(April 21, 2014) At age 14, Joan Jett picked up her first guitar and not long after that she helped turn the rock world upside down for female musicians. On Saturday, August 2nd, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will turn the Clearfield County Fair upside down with a memorable night of rock and roll.
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."
Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. A version of "I Hate Myself for Loving You" has been NBC's Sunday Night Football, performed this past season by Carrie Underwood, and her music is heard in countless films and TV shows including Easy - A, Kick Ass, The Runaways, Shrek, Baby Mama, and many more.
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. Jett was able to see her story told in The Runaways, the film based on (lead singer of The Runaways) Cherie Currie's book Neon Angel starring Kristen Stewart as Jett, and her fellow A-lister Dakota Fanning as Currie. Jett was close to the project: She served as an executive producer.
Jett and the Blackhearts continuously tour across the globe to throngs of adoring fans. Now with a dozen albums on the table, either solo or as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Jett is still kicking butt on stage and looking great in the process. The most recent release, Unvarnished, was released this past September and peaked at 47 on the Billboard Charts.
Tickets will go on-sale April 24th at 10am via www.clearfieldcountyfair.com. Tickets for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will include free gate admission if purchased on-line by midnight, May 15th or postmarked by May 15th. Ticket prices are $30 for Standing Room Only (also includes general admission bleacher seating) and $24 for Grandstand seating.
