The iconic rockstar, now 51, will be accompanied by the Blackhearts, the band with which she recorded her biggest hit, 'I Love Rock'n'Roll,' in 1982.
The one-off intimate London club show comes a few days ahead of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts' 'special guest' support slot on the UK leg of Green Day's European stadium tour at Manchester's Lancashire County Cricket Ground on June 16 and London's Wembley Stadium on June 19.
Tickets for the 100 Club show go on sale Thursday, May 20, at 10am. Three hundred tickets have been set aside for members of the Joan Jett and the Blackhearts fan club, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Jett's live appearances in the UK are neatly timed, as the musical biopic about her all-girl band the Runaways -- which she formed aged just 15 in the 1970s -- will get its nationwide cinema release this August. Executive-produced by Jett herself, 'The Runaways' stars Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie.
A two-disc career-spanning 'Greatest Hits' album has also just been released on Jett's own Blackheart Records, the label she founded in 1980.
