The crowd was already going wild on Sunday night at the Kern County Fair before Joan Jett and the Blackhearts took the stage.
Jett exploded on stage with the classic song “Bad Reputation” followed by “Cherry Bomb” providing an excellent blast from the past of old hits.

Jett showed off her famous guitar skills with her classic punk guitar stance as she began playing songs from the 2013 album “Unvarnished” which included songs like, “TMI”, “Hard to Grow Up”, and “Any Weather” which she wrote with Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters.

While the crowed consisted of many of her older fans, there were also many younger fans, singing along to the songs and rocking out. Her performance provided a great mix of her classic rock music that launched her career while in the band The Runaways, to her career as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts with her newer music.

When it seemed the concert was over, the crowd kept cheering for Jett, bringing her back out for three more songs, finally closing with “Everyday People”.
