Joan Jett & The Blackhearts to Kick-Off Rock of Vegas Summer Concert Series at Fremont Street Experience
Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend at Fremont Street Experience’s Rock of Vegas summer concert series with a free concert by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts on Saturday, May 28 at 9 p.m. at the 3rd Street Stage

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, 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.

She sits at the head of her own independent label, Blackheart Records. 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 music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. A version of “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was performed by Carrie Underwood as the intro to NBC’s Sunday Night Football, and her music is heard in countless films and TV shows. Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, Unvarnished, last year and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans.

The legendary downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue will transform into summer’s alternative destination through Labor Day weekend with a free concert series that showcases a stellar lineup of bands that take music to the edge.

WHEN: Saturday, May 28, 2015 ­ 9 p.m.

WHERE: 3rd Street Stage at Fremont Street Experience located in downtown Las Vegas. Located next to the D Las Vegas, Four Queens Hotel & Casino and Fremont Hotel & Casino.
