Joan Jett will be opening for The Who for the North American leg of their 50th anniversary tour starting in April.

She made the announcement Tuesday afternoon exclusively on New York radio, saying, “It’s very cool and it’s karmic because they invited us to record what became [my second album] Bad Reputation in their studio…and just said, ‘Pay us when you can.’ If it wasn’t for that, Bad Reputation may have never gotten made and it’s all thanks to The Who’s generosity.”

The Who wrap up the U.K. leg of their tour with two shows in London on Wednesday and Thursday. The U.S. leg starts on April 15th in Tampa, Florida.
