Oh hell to the yes, '80s style.
Pat Benatar and hubby/guitarist Neil Giraldo are hitting the road with legendary rock band Journey for a concert tour that's set to launch on July 21 in San Bernardino, California at the San Manuel Amphitheatre. Shows will span across the U.S. with stops in Seattle, Denver, New York, Indianapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Jacksonville and many more cities. The Canadian rock band, Loverboy, will also be part of the stellar performance lineup.
Benatar, Journey and Loverboy? Oh we are working for the weekend, that's for sure.
"We're eagerly awaiting the Summer Tour 2012 this year. Journey and Loverboy will be joining us. Performing for our fans is the best part of what we do and we're excited this year to have some surprises and introduce some new material to everyone," the couple said.
Known as one of the most influential couples in rock & roll, hits by Benatar/Giraldo include "Love Is a Battlefield," "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," "Heartbreaker," "Promises in the Dark," and "We Belong." The powerhouse duo has been married and making music together for more than 33 years. Their groundbreaking path of success includes a collection of multi-platinum albums, Top 40 singles, Grammys and American Music Awards, plus rave reviews and countless sold-out concerts.
The Benatar/Giraldo partnership remains an unstoppable force in the music industry. Neil Giraldo serves as producer, arranger, co-writer, and lead guitarist for the iconic singer. The acclaimed multi-instrumentalist is also known for helping shape the distinctive and renowned Benatar sound. He helped create chart-topping hits for John Waite, Rick Springfield, Kenny Loggins, Steve Forbert, The Del Lords, Beth Hart and many other artists. They are quite the rock 'n' roll couple.
