ROCK ICONS PAT BENATAR, NEIL GIRALDO AND MELISSA ETHERIDGE
EMBARK ON A U.S. TOUR
Atlantic City, NJ (March 22, 2016) —This summer three living legends join forces for one incredible show. Multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning rock icons, Pat Benatar, Neil Giraldo and Melissa Etheridge will embark on a multi-city tour around the U.S. The two-month trek will kick off in Vienna, VA and make stops in several major markets including Tropicana Atlantic City on Saturday, July 9th at 8 p.m.
Pat Benatar has been called a trailblazer and a rule-breaker. After an unprecedented, four consecutive Grammy wins and more than three decades in rock ‘n’ roll, she is also a bonafide living legend. Benatar ruled the early days of MTV with 19 Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 hits, “Hit Me with Your Best Shot,” “Love Is a Battlefield,” “We Belong,” and “Invincible.” Her timeless songs, including the powerful, “Hell is for Children,” which deals with the anguish of child abuse, have garnered numerous honors including Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, and NAACP Image Awards.
Neil “Spyder” James Giraldo has been a professional musician 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 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.
Known for her powerful lyrics, incomparable voice and blazing guitar, Melissa Etheridge has earned two Grammy Awards and 17 more Grammy nominations. She also scored an Academy Award for “I Need to Wake Up” from the Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth, and a star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame. For her most recent album, This is Me, Melissa Etheridge teamed with some of the most creative, inventive figures on the music scene. The result is a collection of songs right from her heart.
