Styx and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are the latest acts to team up for a co-headlining summer tour. Presented by Live Nation, the trek kicks off May 30th in Irvine, CA and continues through mid July.

Tesla will provide support as the opening act. Tickets for the North American run go on sale February 16th.

Styx is fresh off the release of their 15th studio album The Mission, which debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart this past summer.

Joan Jett & the Blackhearts released their latest album, Unvarnished, in 2013. In January, the documentary film based on Jett’s life, “Bad Reputation,” premiered to critical acclaim at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, with the New York Post hailing that “‘Bad Reputation’ does it right, tracing Jett’s trailblazing path as one of the first, and still the hardest-rocking, women.”

See below for a full list of tour dates.

Also teaming up for co-headlining tours this summer are Hall & Oates and Train, Chicago and REO Speedwagon, the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, and Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers with Anny Wilson of Heart.
