Niagara Gazette —
In some ways it’s surprising that Jett doesn’t chose to end the evening with “I Love Rock and Roll,” and yet live, “I Hate Myself for Loving You” is a much better closer. During the song, Jett had the entire audience clapping along, keeping time.
For her encores Jett played Sweet’s “AC/DC” a great song from a band that never achieved the level of fame they should have. For her final number there was a surprising version of Sly and the Family Stones “Everyday People.” It’s a song that Jett should not be able to pull off, but she did, and made it all her own.
One should expect a great performance from Joan Jett, after all, she has been in the music business since her teens, and she got where she is with a lot of hard work and winning over crowds with her high-spirited performances.
The show could have been a little longer, but what fans got was quality over quantity.
