Pat Benatar, Neil Giraldo announced for The Vine on July 28th

Pat Benatar

On Monday, del Lago Resort & Casino announced another top performance for The Vine. 

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo will perform at its 2,400-person entertainment venue on July 28th. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 31st at noon and may be purchased in person at the del Lago Resort & Casino box office, by calling the box office at 315-946-1695 or online at dellagoresort.com/entertainment.

 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. 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 channels. Her hits continue to be as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Benatar emerged, fearless, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world.

In 1978, in between appearances at Catch a Rising Star and recording commercial jingles for Pepsi Cola, Benatar headlined New York City’s Tramps nightclub, where her performance impressed representatives from several record companies. She was signed to Chrysalis Records by co-founder Terry Ellis. In 1979, producer and writer, Mike Chapman, introduced Benatar to Neil Giraldo, an up and coming guitarist. Giraldo began his career in 1978, as a key member of the Rick Derringer band, after beating out 200 other guitarists for the position. Chapman felt Benatar needed a musical director and partner who could establish a more aggressive sound and thought Giraldo was the perfect choice. In Giraldo, Benatar found someone as strong as her, someone who could match the same fire-power, someone who could inspire her, while being inspired by her. Their connection was instantaneous and still a perfect fit today.
