Joan Jett and the Blackhearts head to the Joint at Hard Rock Hotel on Friday, Sept. 18.

With eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, Jett earned a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Some of her classic hits include "Bad Reputation," "Do You Wanna Touch Me," "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You," and "Crimson and Clover."

Jett runs her own independent label, Blackheart Records, and has acted in movies and television, including 1987's "Light Of Day," and in the Tony-nominated Broadway musical, "The Rocky Horror Show."

She performed in the all-girl punk quartet the Runaways when she was 15 and then went solo before she formed the Blackhearts. The band scored its first hit with "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," which came out in 1982.

Now songs such as "I Hate Myself for Loving You" are part of NBC's "Sunday Night Football," and her songs can be heard in films and TV shows including "Shrek," and "Baby Mama."

Actress Kristen Stewart portrayed Jett in "The Runaways," a film based on the book "Neon Angel" by lead Runaways singer Cherie Currie.

Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, "Unvarnished," in 2013.

Tickets start at $39.50 and go on sale Friday.
