Rock legends Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo have just announced plans to keep their 35th Anniversary Tour rocking fans through the summer with an additional 35 concerts added coast to coast. The powerhouse duo behind one of the largest arsenals of rock hits including "Love is a Battlefield", "Hit Me with Your Best Shot", "Heartbreaker", "We Live For Love","Promises In The Dark," "WeBelong," and more will be headlining solo concerts nationwide -- as well as joining forces with Cher this spring, and co-headlining a just announced summer tour with Rick Springfield.
35 years ago, Heartbreaker (on the debut album In The Heat of The Night) was the catalyst for it all, said Pat Benatar. Its hard to believe that so much time has passed. Were excited to be celebrating this personal and musical milestone. The summer tour should be an incredible, shared experience with the audience.
From the very beginning our chemistry was undeniable, remarked Neil Giraldo. This is the driving force behind everything we do. After 35 years of playing together, were looking forward to the summer tour and the future, which will surely be
Together, with Benatars mezzo-soprano vocal range ands trail-blazing work as a guitarist, producer and songwriter, Pat Benatarand Neil Giraldohave forged one of the most successful partnerships in rock & roll history. Since their initial collaboration 35 years ago on the debut album "In The Heat of the Night," they have sold more than 26 million albums and charted19 Top 40 singles, earning four consecutive Grammy Awardsand three American Music Awards.
Included in their added concerts, Pat & Spyder will join forces with Rick Springfield for a multi-city co-headlining summer tour kicking off on June 29th in Raleigh, NC. Although they have known each other for more than three decades, the tour marks the first time theyve toured together.Springfield added,Although I first met Pat and Neil when Neil played on the original recording of Jessies Girl in 1980 it took 35 years before we got together to tour. It should be one for the books. Tickets for their tour with Rick Springfield go on sale in select markets beginning March 3, 2014.

Billboard Magazine ranked Benatar as one of themost successful female rock vocalist of all-time. as a fearless,fighting force has helped forge a path for other female rock starsthe world. In addition to the arsenal of more then 100 songs hewritten, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar,s helped create hits for legions of other artists including John Waite, Rick Springfield (No. 1,classic hit "Ive Done Everything for You"), Kenny Loggins and more.Theirs is a chemistry that will, undoubtedly, be thrilling music lovers forever.
From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The shows opener was a celebration of pure, hard-driving rock as Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo walked on stage with nothing but a backdrop, a bass player and a drummer and promptly went about filling a solid hour of top-notch rock roll to the delight of all. Stringing together hit after hit, they hit the road to celebrate 35 years of musical collaboration (32 of those married) and they have never sounded better.
Mr. Giraldo played a semi-hollow body electric for most of the hour-long set and wailed with mean distortion that filled Consol with old-school rugged rock while Benatars powerhouse vocals soared high above it all, never missing beat. It was a spectacular set-up for the main event and paired together it was an unforgettable evening and, yes, a s World.
Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo reget that their show in Moncton, NB, Canada will have to be postponed due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts. They express their deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and will make every effort to reschedule this show as soon as possible. Please contact the Casino box office if you need additional information. Thank you.
