Four-time Grammy winners Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo will bring their multi-platinum hits to the French Lick Resort stage on Thursday, July 5.
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. During the 1980s, Benatar had two RIAA-certified Multi-Platinum albums, five RIAA-certified Platinum albums, three RIAA-certified Gold albums and 19 Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 hits, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", "Love Is a Battlefield", "We Belong" and "Invincible". During the early days of MTV Benatar was one of the most heavily played artists on the popular music channel.
Neil “Spyder” James Giraldo has been a professional musician, producer and songwriter for over four decades. Together with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar, he changed the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s. More than just a steel-bending guitar player, Giraldo’s innovative vision helped create the signature Benatar sound. His catalog includes more than 100 songs written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, as well as hits he helped create for 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) and countless others.
Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo have formed one of the most successful partnerships in music history. Their rock and roll love affair has endured for 38 years and they continue to tour every year, wowing audiences everywhere. Tickets can be purchased on Ticketmaster or the front desk at French Lick Springs Hotel.
