Pat Benatar's staggering vocals and take-no-prisoners attitude, along with Neil Giraldo's trailblazing artistry as a guitarist, producer, and songwriter, forged the undeniable chemistry and unique sound that created some of Rocks most memorable hits, including "We Belong," "Invincible," "Love Is A Battlefield," "Promises In The Dark," "We Live For Love," "Heartbreaker," and "Hell Is For Children." Together they have created two multi-platinum, five platinum, and three gold albums and achieved nineteen Top 40 hits. They have sold over thirty million records worldwide and have won an unprecedented four consecutive GRAMMY® awards. Their rock and roll love affair has endured for more than three and a half decades. Pat and Neil continue to tour, selling out concerts everywhere.
Opening the show is Chris Trapper, who has been recording and on the road performing more than 150 shows a year for the last 15 years. The Huffington Post has deemed him "a brilliantly gifted songwriter," and the New York Times has called his work "classic pop perfection." His most recent full-length album Cold Water Waltz offers a mostly stripped-down affair, focusing squarely on Trapper's achingly honest lyrics, honeyed tenor, and delicate fingerpicking. The record features Boston legends Duke Levine (Aimee Man, Peter Wolf) & Jim Prescott (G Love & Special Sauce) as well as Matt Beck (Matchbox Twenty, Rod Stewart) & a song co-written with Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20.
