Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will warm up for this summer’s huge stadium shows with Green Day by playing an intimate club gig in London next month.

And the former Runaways star is sure to whet the appetite for the August release of the film of the same name – starring Kristen Stewart as the band’s leading lady.

2010 is set to be a huge year for the veteran punk rocker and fans can snap up tickets for Jett’s performance at the legendary 100 Club venue from tomorrow morning.

The gig takes place on June 14 – just days before she joins Green Day in Manchester, London and Glasgow. And we confidently predict it will be a real treat for all fans of good old fashioned rock and roll.

The 100 Club concert will be Joan Jett’s first intimate UK club performance in 20 years. Fans will get a chance to experience the music from one of rock music’s best loved icons, known  to millions for her milestone rock anthems I Love Rock N’ Roll, Crimson and Clover, Bad Reputation, Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah), and the seminal Runaways rock and roll classic Cherry Bomb.

The 100 Club concert dovetails the forthcoming August UK cinema release of the Runaways biopic “The Runaways” starring Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie.

Tickets are priced £20.00 for the 100 Club date and will be available from 10am tomorrow by calling the following box office number – 08700 603 777 or from
