Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Joan Jett at the Delaware County Fair, Manchester, IA The Delaware County Fair is thrilled to announce their lineup for VIP night at the 2011 Delaware County Fair. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will headline this year’s night of legends concert. During the 1980s, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts put together a series of gold and platinum-certified hit albums and Joan Jett was referred to as the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll”. She was best known for her hits “I Love Rock’n’Roll”, “Crimson and Clover”, and “I Hate Myself for Loving You”. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will be taking the stage on Friday, July 15th.

The Delaware County Fair considers VIP night their marquis event and is proud to once again host this annual social gathering for the community. Jeannie Domeyer, Manager of the Delaware County Fair said, “We had a tough year booking VIP night with the loss of REO Speedwagon but we spent a lot of time and effort finding a legendary rock band that could come into Manchester and put on a high energy, full force rock show. Joan Jett was named as one of only two women to Rolling Stone’s top 100 guitar players. With those kind of accolades her show will definitely be energetic and full on classic rock.”

“Our community has supported VIP night very strongly over the past 9 years. We invite you to come out and join us again with another great classic rock show, Domeyer said.”
Tickets for this concert will go on sale in late March. Tickets for this show are $60 and include all you care to eat and drink from 6:00 p.m. until the end of the concert.
