The Deal


  • Number of records Heart’s sold: more than 35 million
  • Debut album: Dreamboat Annie, which ricocheted through the male-dominated hard rock landscape when it hit the airwaves in 1976
  • What archetypal track “Magic Man” is made of: Nancy’s chain-smoking guitar riff and Ann’s voice, a balance between folky ’70s sweetness and a mic-singeing wail
  • Other essential tracks: “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You,” “These Dreams,” “What About Love,” “Alone”
  • The newest album: …is almost in the can and should be released sometime in 2016. Ann teases that it will “have more contours” than 2012’s Fantatic and features more singing from sister Nancy

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

  • Joan’s well-deserved nickname: “Godmother of Punk,” which she earned as a member of the seminal all-girl ’70s rock troupe The Runaways—and cemented as the leader of the Blackhearts
  • Bad Reputation: Joan’s first single and solo album from 1980, and the coming-out party for a rock-and-roll tour de force. VH1 named it the 29th Best Hard Rock Song of All Time.
  • Good reputation: In addition to her status as a feminist icon, Joan was inducted into the 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and listed as one of Rolling Stone’s Greatest 100 Guitarists of All Time.
  • “I Love Rock and Roll”: Jett’s biggest album to date (and first with her loyal Blackhearts), featuring that fist-pumping title track and her raucous take on “Crimson and Clover.”

Cheap Trick

  • More than four decades: the amount of time Cheap Trick has wanted you to want them
  • Cheap Trick at Budokan: the 1978 album that made them a household name and enticed listeners to catch up on their earlier albums, including the pop-punk masterpiece Heaven Tonight
  • Anthems that rally fans of all generations: “Surrender,” “I Want You to Want Me,” and their ‘90s über power ballad “The Flame”
  • Why fans should be excited for April: that’s when Cheap Trick gets inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Starlight Theatre

Among other things, Starlight Theatre was born out of an eagerness to impress a woman with a fancy hat. In 1925, a visit from Romania's Queen Marie led the Kansas City Federation of Music to organize a showcase of some of the city's finest musicians—a performance they opened to the public as well. The response was overwhelming and gave the city the push needed to plan for a permanent outdoor venue. Since then, Starlight's stage has seen stars of rock, comedy, pop, and Broadway, including Jerry Lewis, who personally paid for a stage extension to bring him closer to his audience. A star of a different sort to steal the spotlight was President Harry Truman, who made a special appearance on the opening night of Mr. President, only to be rushed away by ambulance during intermission due to an attack of appendicitis.
