The Steve Miller Band, Joan Jett, Jewel and Martina McBride have all lined up shows at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
Country popster Jewel brings her “Greatest Hits Tour” to The Joint May 3. Tickets are $40, $45 and $55 and go on sale March 21, according to her official website. The lyric soprano has sold more than 45 million albums worldwide that include hits “Who Will Save Your Soul,” “You Were Meant for Me,” “Stronger Woman,” “Foolish Games,” “I Do” and “Til It Feels Like Cheating.” Her “Greatest Hits” is expected for release this year.
Country singer Martina McBride is listed for a May 31 show date at The Joint. The Joint website shows tickets are $55, $65 and $75, and will go on sale April 18. She is touring much of the year with George Strait, and right now, those are the only dates shown on her site, with no solo dates yet announced for May.
Often called one of the most spectacular voices in country music, Grammy-winning McBride is a four-time Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year winner. She’s grabbed that throne three times from the Academy of Country Music. She’s sold more than 18 million albums since her career kickoff in 1990, and she’s scored 24 Billboard top 10 country singles, including six No. 1s.
She is also the most-played female artist on country radio of the last 11 years, according to Mediabase and Broadcast Data Systems.
Classic rocker the Steve Miller Band returns to The Joint for a Sept. 27 concert, nearly a year to the day after its last show there. Tickets are $70 and $75, and go on sale Aug. 15.
The Steve Miller Band broke through into the American rock ‘n’ roll scene with its 1973 single “The Joker.” Soon, the band was a staple of rock radio with hits including “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Swingtown” and “Abracadabra.”
The band’s top-selling album, 1978’s “Greatest Hits 1974-1978,” has sold more than 13 million copies.
In November, rocker Joan Jett returns to the area for her first concert at The Joint. She’ll bring her band, The Blackhearts. Tickets are $40, $45 and $50, and will go on sale Aug. 15. According to her official website, the tour will take her through Australia and Canada before she lands on her feet in Green Country. The 54-year-old musician has recorded influential hits since the early ‘80s, including “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “Crimson and Clover,” “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” “Do You Want to Touch Me,” “Light of Day,” “Love Is All Around,” “Bad Reputation” and “Little Liar.”
She’s sold more than 8 million albums since the mid-’70s as a teenage rock vixen in The Runaways alongside Sandy West, Jackie Fox, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie. She went solo by 1979.
