Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo to Tour with Cheap Trick

Forget about barbeque parties this summer when the coming of two colossal groups is on the horizon. Pat Benatar and husband, Neil Giraldo, are teaming up with Cheap Trick for eight unforgettable evenings.

The Benatar-Giraldo duo dominated the 80s, with Giraldo writing and producing over 100 songs for Benatar, as well as extensive music portfolio collaborations with John Waite, Rick Springfield, Kenny Loggins, Steve Forbert, The Del Lords and many more.

Cheap Trick is a great match for Benatar and Giraldo, infamously blending pop, punk and heavy metal to create a sound that has sold more than 20 million records, been featured on 29 movie soundtracks and has earned 40 gold and platinum awards.

These music heavy weights open at the Thunder Valley Casino, Lincoln, Calif. on June 7, and will end at the Wolf Trap Filene Center, Vienna, Va. on August 20.
