With Eagles Of Death Metal as openers, the 19-day jaunt begins Oct. 12 at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia and winds up on Nov. 19, although more shows will be added. Throw Rag, Riverboat Gamblers and Valient Thorr will also open for a handful of shows each.
"Sinner," the rock icon's first album in 12 years, was released in June via Jett's own Blackheart label. At Warped, she was performing alongside up-and-comers such as Rise Against, Anti-Flag and Underoath.
"The Warped tour likes to get bands that represent where a lot of this music came from, the punk rock, the predecessors, and I guess that's where I fit in with the Runaways," Jett told Billboard in May. "It's the first time I've done a traveling festival like this where every [act] gives them 30 minutes of hell, right?"
In addition, Jett will perform for the first time on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Sept. 20.
