The tour follows exciting news confirming their involvement in Dolly Parton’s upcoming rock album, “Rockstar”. Set for release in November 17, Benatar & Giraldo joined the fellow legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee for a cover of their classic ‘Heartbreaker.” Dolly shared: “I am very honored and privileged to have worked with some of the greatest iconic singers and musicians of all time, and to be able to sing all the iconic songs throughout the album was a joy beyond measure.”
Earlier this year, Benatar & Giraldo made an appearance at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards, honoring 2023’s Icon Award Recipient, P!NK, with a special cover of one of her earliest hits, “Just Like A Pill” from her 2001 album “Missundaztood”. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers were also joined by Kelly Clarkson in honoring P!NK. Watch the full performance below.
This past spring, they joined an all-star lineup of rock, blues and soul music legends including James Taylor, John Mayer Trio, Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples, St. Vincent, Rufus Wainwright, Jim James, Stephen Marley, Gary Clark Jr., Allison Russell, The War and Treaty, Bernie Williams and more for a very special evening celebrating the seventh annual Love Rocks NYC benefit concert for God’s Love We Deliver live from the historic Beacon Theatre in NYC.

2022 proved to be an eventful year for Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, joining a long list of fellow ground-breaking global icons. Watch a clip of their rousing performance from the night below.
The duo also celebrated the WORLD PREMIERE presentation of their critically acclaimed INVINCIBLE – The Musical at The Wallis in Los Angeles. INVINCIBLE – The Musical weaves Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo’s legendary catalogue and inspired new songs throughout a re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Set in the modern, war-torn metropolis of Verona where the newly elected Chancellor Paris vows to destroy the progressive resistance and return the city to its traditional roots. The star-crossed lovers’ story, exploring how love and equality battle for survival in times of great transformation, envisions peace in a divided world. The pair performed the musical version of ‘Heartbreaker’ with leading cast members Khamary Rose and Kay Sibal on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden.
