“I’ve known Neil a long time and he’s a fantastic musician,” Toto’s Steve Lukather commented. “Pat’s voice is one of the all time greats and we’re super excited to join together with them to do some shows this summer.”
“Looking forward to sharing the stage this year with our good friends and great players, Toto,” Pat and Neil shared. “We’ve known each other for years and never had the opportunity to do an extended tour together until now. Should be good times for all.”
Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo are a powerhouse duo. Since 1979, Benatar and Giraldo have formed one of the most successful partnerships in music history.
During their nearly four-decade career, they have won an unprecedented, four consecutive Grammy awards as well as three American Music awards.
Their undeniable chemistry, Benatar's mezzo-soprano vocal range and Giraldo's trail blazing work as a producer, guitarist and songwriter created some of rock's most memorable hits. These include, "Promises in the Dark”, “Hell is For Children”, We Live For Love”, “Love Is A Battlefield”, “Hit me with Your Best Shot" and "We Belong."
Earlier this year, they recorded "Shine”, a new song written with Linda Perry, celebrating women's rights around the world.
Their rock and roll love affair has endured for 38 years and they continue to tour every year, wowing audiences everywhere.
