Joan Jett's throaty rock 'n' roll is a classic that never gets old. Now deep into her fourth decade of performing, Jett's sound has remained essentially the same as what she cranked out in 1981 on her debut album, Bad Reputation (Boardwalk)—if anything, her voice has improved with time.
When she makes her appearance Thursday, Aug. 24 at the Western Idaho Fair, Jett will be promoting her 12th studio album, Unvarnished (Blackheart, 2013)—an achievement backed by her eight platinum and gold albums, nine top 40 singles and status as a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.
If you're already paying for the fair, this concert is your once-in-a-lifetime (free) chance to see the star who brought you "I Love Rock 'n' Roll."
