Four-time GRAMMY® Award winner Pat Benatar first landed on the charts and in homes across America during the early days of MTV in the 1980s. Together with producer, guitarist and songwriting partner, Neil Giraldo and a jaw-dropping, classically-trained voice and fierce determination, they ruled the radio with hits such as “Love Is A Battlefield,” “Heartbreaker,” “We Live for Love,” “We Belong,” and the signature “Promises in The Dark.” After three decades, the duo has sold over 30 million albums worldwide, cementing their place in rock history. Married for 36 years and musical partners for 38 years, they continue to wow audiences during sold-out concerts. For more info, visit www.benatargiraldo.com.
