Pat Benatar returned to Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart after an absence of 16 years in November with “Dancing Through the Wreckage,” a strong new song she recorded for Served Like a Girl, a documentary about female veterans returning to the United States after their military service.
It really is a great song, but we fully realize that you wanna hear all of the Benatar classics too — powerful and liberating numbers like “Love Is a Battlefield,” “Invincible,” and “We Belong.” Well, you can if you buy one of the few remaining tickets for a performance by Pat and Neil Giraldo at MGM National Harbor on Tuesday, July 24!
Born in Brooklyn, Patricia Andrzejewski kept the surname of her first husband and scored 17 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 as Pat Benatar! She soon married guitar virtuoso Neil Giraldo, who was in her band from the start, and now the two of them barnstorm festivals and dancehalls from coast to coast.

Lest we forget in our excitement — the one-and-only Rick Springfield will perform at MGM National Harbor on Tuesday also! Did you know Neil created that memorable guitar riff for Rick’s “Jessie’s Girl”…?! How about seeing Rick *and* Neil play it live together???

In a review for Digital Journal, Markos Papadatos praised Pat and Neil’s most recent show in Long Island, New York.
“Overall, Pat Benatar emerged as the Queen of Rock and Roll on Long Island. Doing this ‘very intimate’ acoustic show with Giraldo at The Paramount allowed the audience to hear her powerhouse voice in its purest form. Hopefully, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will take notice, and finally induct this deserving rock goddess in there. Their concert at The Paramount earned two giant thumbs up,” Markos said.
Join roughly 3,000 of your new friends to see Pat at MGM National Harbor, but act fast – there are sincerely very few seats left for this killer show. Buy your tickets online.
