Bring on the nostalgia! Music legends Boston bring their Hyper Space Tour this summer with Joan Jett & The Blackhearts to the Rose Music Center in Huber Heights on Saturday, July 8, 2017.
Tickets for the show will range from $24.50 to $102 plus fees and will go on sale to the public beginning at 11 a.m. Friday, March 10, at www.Ticketmaster.com, www.Rosemusiccenter.com and the Rose Music Center box office. Charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
It’s been over 40 years since BOSTON’s self-titled debut album first hit the airwaves. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” "Peace of Mind,” "Foreplay/Long Time,” and "Smokin'," rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second album, Don't Look Back was another chart-topper, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, "Amanda.” Walk On, Corporate America, and Life, Love & Hope complete the band’s discography. The band has sold over 31 million albums.
As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Joan Jett’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.
Jett has acted in movies and television, including 1987's Light Of Day, and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, The Rocky Horror Show.
One dollar from each ticket purchased this summer will be donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, who are committed to ending the slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans, as well as Mercy for Animals, which works to expose cruelty, prosecute abusers and inspire consumers to make compassionate food choices.
