Best known for the hit song “I Love Rock ‘n Roll”, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts will perform on Friday, April 19 at 8:30 PM in the Grand Event Center at Golden Nugget Lake Charles. This classic tune held the Number One spot from March 20 to May 1, 1982. Jett’s other hits include: “Crimson and Clover”, “Do You Wanna Touch Me”, “Light of Day”, “Love is All Around” and “Bad Reputation”. As the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll and the Godmother of Punk, Jett was a 2015 inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
