Located poolside at Sunset Station, the Sunset Amphitheater is the perfect destination for a concert experience under the stars. Tickets for Junefest go on sale Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m.

Pat Benatar has always been a rule-breaker and a trail-blazer, she remains a bold and distinctive artist both on stage and on record, and now, after more than three decades in rock ‘n’ roll, she’s a bonafide living legend. Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo: The 35th Anniversary Tour kicks off with “Shadows Of The Night,” which was a top ten hit for the couple on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart in 1982. Other chart entries on the package include her chart-topping classic “Love Is A Battlefield,” in addition to “All Fired Up,” “Invincible,” “Sex As A Weapon,” and perhaps the song for which the couple is best known – “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” which was a Top-10 hit on the Hot 100 in 1980.

A four-time Grammy winner, Benatar is a classically trained mezzo-soprano. During the 1980s, Benatar had two RIAA-certified Multi-Platinum albums, five RIAA-certified Platinum albums, three RIAA-certified Gold albums and 19 Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 hits, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” “Love Is a Battlefield,” “We Belong” and “Invincible.” During the early days of MTV Benatar was one of the most heavily played artists on the popular music channel. Her hits continue to be as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Pat emerged, fearless, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world.

Neil “Spyder” James Giraldo, has been a professional musician, producer, arranger and songwriter for over four decades now, changing the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar. More than just an explosive steel bending guitar player, Giraldo’s innovative vision helped him create the signature Benatar sound, from its inception.

His impressive back catalog includes more than 100 songs written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, as well as many hits he helped create for John Waite, 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), Steve Forbert, The Del Lords, Beth Hart and countless others.
