Joan Jett And The Blackhearts Duluth, GA Review

Joan Jett opened for The Who in Duluth, GA last week - and man, did she bring the place down!  While I normally only write a blurb about the opening band (If there is an opening band) at a concert, Jett and The Blackhearts did so well that I felt they deserved their own review.

The Who Hits 50! Duluth, GA Review

I caught The Who with Joan Jett last week in Duluth, Ga.  The combination of the two was a perfect bill.  Jett and The Blackhearts did an amazing job as an opening act (you can read about it HERE) and The Who kept the party rolling with a combination of great playing and entertaining interludes. 

Anyone that has been to a ton of shows knows that the worst part of a concert is waiting.  Waiting for the opening act to start, waiting while the opening act’s equipment is broken down, and then waiting for the headliner to start.  What this usually means is that you’re stuck looking at an empty stage and listening to some pre-selected music to pass the time.
