Yesterday, We went to see Joan Jett and the Blackhearts perform at Busch Gardens apart of the Bands, Brew, and BBQ event. Overall, this event was AMAZING. Awesome food, great music, and a great atmosphere made this day a day that everyone who attended will remember and treasure forever.
While the park was crowded, we eventually made our way to the Morocco/Bird Gardens area of the park and the crowds were having a great time. Music was blasting, BBQ was cooking and people were drinking one of the many beers they had to offer. On the way to eat we saw an awesome band playing on the local band stage called Four Star Riot, they are a great group. We decided to check out the Outback Tent first because we love Outback. We got the Steak and Shrooms which came with a side of Aussie "Chips", it was delicious and had a great amount of steak too. The steak was so tender, the shrooms were sauteed to perfection, and the fries were nice and crispy. You can see a picture of the meal below.
By the time we finished eating it was time to head over to the Meet and Greet. Check in was fast and we only had to wait a few minutes to be escorted to the back and got in line to meet Joan Jett. Joan was super nice and looked 30 not even close to her real age, 52! After we got our picture taken and talked to Joan it was time to find a seat.
We had great reserved seats. Joan Jett came on stage and the crowd went wild! Gwazi Field was more crowded then I ever saw it! Joan started out with her hit song "Bad Reputation". She went on to do many of her other songs like "I Love Rock N Roll", "Hate Myself For Loving You" and "Crimson and Clover". She also did some of her Runaways songs like "Cherry Bomb" and "You Drive Me Wild". She interacting with the audience a lot too. Throughout the show, she explained the meaning of each song and the names of the song. Joan Jett is truly THE rocker chick. The concert was amazing and she even did two encores after a long show.
Thanks for everyone on the Bands, Brew, and BBQ team for making this event awesome.
