Heart & Joan Jett Rocked Hinckley- The Promise of New Albums
I have to say, I was totally impressed with Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts who performed at the Hinckley Casino's outdoor stage on Saturday night...What a show! There were massive amounts of people everywhere. Ann and Nancy Wilson announced they have a new album coming out this summer, and performed many of their classic hits, as well as some selections from their upcoming album. It was surreal being in the audience and listening to them LIVE!
Considering the mass chaos, everyone was enjoying the beautiful evening and even standing in line didn't bother us. I made some new friends while we were waiting to get our beverages and Pizza. Pictured above are Suzanne, Left, and Liz, center. None of us came to the show together, but we were trying to bring the food and bevvies back to our crews. Liz and I both came to the show with our moms...Suzanne traveled from Chanhassen! We were talking about how these two great bands cross generations so well.
Joan Jett looked and sounded fabulous as always. Nothing says 'rebel' like Joan Jett. She makes you want to BE cool! Her signature cougar growl, was heard ringing throughout the stadium. I didn't realize that she had written with so many fabulous artists...Dave Grohl from The Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, and many others. She has a new album coming out called "Fragile"...and she performed the title track...I loved it!
Sitting to my left, were two great girls...big fans of both Joan Jett and Heart. Laurie and Amber. Amber was the food and bevvy runner.....Laurie and I couldn't help but dance all night to the great songs.
Of course, I was rocking out with my mom Lo...We just kept shaking our heads listening to Ann Wilson's voice. The bass was so loud my mom's heart almost pounded out of her chest! She'd never heard music that did that before. The show was nothing short of amazing. It was a great evening. On top of it, I won $100 in the casino! Can't get much better than that for a night out on the town!
