Joan Jett to Play Pre-Game Gig at Sports Bar in Wisconsin

It's no secret that  Joan Jett  is a Green Bay Packers fan; she's said so in  many interviews . This year, though, she's made sure that she'll be on hand in Wisconsin for the Packers' opening game -- she's signed on to play a gig the night before, just blocks down the street from Lambeau Field.

The show will take place outside Burkel's One Block Over sports bar on Saturday, September 13, and tickets will go on sale next Tuesday, August 12, at 11 a.m. Central, at TicketStarOnline.com.

Jett grew up in New York, but told  Esquire  magazine  that she became a Packers fan at the age of "six or seven" by looking at the photo on "a  Sports Illustrated  cover. Everybody was completely muddy, so muddy you couldn't see who was wearing what uniform. One guy had a swipe across the helmet where the mud was wiped off, and you could see part of the G through it. For some reason, as a kid, just seeing that G, I became a Green Bay Packers fan." 

Jett might face a conflict of loyalty at the opening game: the lineup pits the Packers against Jett's home-state team, the New York Jets.
