A four-time Grammy winner, Pat Benatar is a classically trained mezzo-soprano.  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. Her hits continue to be 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 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 (#1 Grammy-winning classic “Jessie’s Girl” and Top 10 hit “I’ve Done Everything for You” included), Kenny Loggins (Top 20 hit “Don’t Fight it” – also Grammy-nominated), Steve Forbert, The Del Lords, Beth Hart and countless others.

See them both in this one night only show at the Nugget 2nd Floor Convention Ballroom.
