What?! Did you read this lineup? What ISSSSS this madness? Heart AND Joan Jett? How are we even going to be able to stop our (black)hearts from exploding before this unbelievably amazing thing comes to pass? I know guys, I know. Take a deep breath, because we’re going to need to muster all of our energy to keep up with these phenomenal femmes.

As revolutionary movers and shakers, each in her own right, sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson have sometimes been described as the “American Led Zeppelin,” and this description has nothing to do with anyone choking to death on their own vomit (RIP Mr. Bonham). Frankly, these chicks just freakin’ rock, and have been doing so for longer than the collective lifespans of many Zep-heads. Ditto Joan Jett, whose icon-status was guaranteed from the moment that first “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” downbeat struck. Friends, do we even need to spend any further time trying to convince you, here? Didn’t think so.
