Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts coming to Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre

Joan Jett

Think of this tour kind of like Lilith Fair on steroids.

Two of the rockingest, rollingest, ragingest female-fronted rock acts in history, Heart and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, are teaming up for a major summer tour that'll hit Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on Sept. 22. Tickets to the show are $25.95 and up, and they'll go on sale Jan. 22. Click here for details.

The mind reels at all the chord-crunching hits Heart and Jett will drop at this show, from Barracuda to Bad Reputation, Magic Man to I Love Rock 'n' Roll, Crazy On You to I Hate Myself for Loving You, What About Love to Do You Wanna Touch Me.

Of note: Most of the dates on this tour also feature soon-to-be-inducted Hall of Famers Cheap Trick on the bill -- but not Tampa, which is strange, since it would be something of a hometown show for singer Robin Zander, who lives in Safety Harbor. However, it's possible Cheap Trick will be added later, possibly after they play the Florida Strawberry Festival on March 5. We'll keep you posted.
