Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo

Apr 23, 2013 8:00pm - 11:00pm

1980s' Top 40 powerhouse Pat Benatar performs classic rock hits including ''Heartbreaker,'' ''Invincible,'' ''Fire and Ice,'' ''Hit Me with Your Best Shot,'' ''Love Is a Battlefield'' and ''You Better Run,'' accompanied by her husband, guitar great Neil Giraldo.

Pat Benatar has always been a rule-breaker and a trail-blazer, she remains a bold and distinctive artist both on stage and on record, and now, after more than three decades in rock 'n' roll, she's a bonafide living legend. Songs like ''Love is a Battlefield'', ''Hit Me with Your Best Shot'', ''Heartbreaker'', ''Promises In The Dark'' and ''We Belong'' are as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Pat emerged, fearless, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world.
Neil ''Spyder'' James Giraldo, has been a professional musician, producer, arranger and songwriter for over four decades now, changing the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar. More than just an explosive steel-bending guitar player, Giraldo's innovative vision helped him create the signature Benatar sound, from its inception. His impressive back catalog includes more than 100 songs written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, as well as many hits he helped create for John Waite, Rick Springfield (Number One, Grammy-winning classic ''Jessie's Girl'' and Top Ten hit ''I've Done Everything For You'' included), Kenny Loggins (Top Twenty hit ''Don't Fight It,'' also Grammy-nominated), Steve Forbert, The Del Lords, Beth Hart and countless others.
