The Queens of Sheba tour came to a packed Abbotsford Centre on Monday night.

The show opened with The Mandevilles, an acoustic duo featuring Serena Pryne and Nick Lesyk, who are with the tour for two weeks as it travels across Canada.

Next up was Joan Jett, who has to her credit eight platinum and gold albums and nine top 40 singles, including the classics Bad Reputation, I Love Rock ’N’ Roll, I Hate Myself for Loving You, and Crimson and Clover.

Heart, featuring sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, rocked the centre with a slew of their hits, including Crazy on You, Magic Man, Barracuda, Straight On and What About Love, and ended the night with a tribute to Led Zeppelin.

A crowd of more than 4,500 attended the show.
