The Who Recruit Joan Jett To Open North American Tour
Joan Jett will celebrate her forthcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with a victory lap in the form of a North American arena tour opening for the Who.
Jett and the Who have history together, as she noted in a press statement. "After [her former band] the Runaways ended, the Who and [their then-manager] Bill Curbishley stepped up, and let me use their studio, Ramport," Jett said.
