Cheap Trick, Joan Jett to stop at Starlight this summer

The summer concert announcements are starting to roll in, and Starlight Theater announced a classic-rock show on Aug. 15, a Monday.

Three Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bands are on the bill: Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Cheap Trick. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 22.

It will be Heart’s second performance in Kansas City since early December, when they headlined a show at the Arvest Bank Theater at the Midland. Cheap Trick last performed in Kansas City in August 15, also at Starlight. Jett and the Blackhearts were scheduled to open for the Who at Sprint Center in 2015. But the show was postponed twice. It has been rescheduled for April 29. According to her web site, Jett is no longer opening for the Who tour.
