Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo with guest John Waite to perform at The Amp


Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo with special guest John Waite will take the stage at The Amp on Oct. 20.

Benatar’s staggering vocals and take-no-prisoners attitude, along with Neil Giraldo’s trailblazing artistry as a guitarist, producer and songwriter forged the undeniable chemistry and unique sound that created some of rock’s most memorable hits, including “We Belong,” “Invincible,” “Love Is A Battlefield,” “Promises In The Dark,” “We Live For Love,” “Heartbreaker” and “Hell Is For Children.”

Together they have created two multi-platinum, five platinum and three gold albums, as well as 19 Top 40 hits. They have sold more than 30 million records worldwide and have won an unprecedented four consecutive Grammy awards.

Joining Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo will be John Waite, former bassist and lead vocalist for the Babys who rocketed to Top 20 chart positions with a pair of hits, “Isn’t it Time” from the band’s sophomore LP, “Broken Heart” in 1977, and the monster ballad, “Every Time I Think of You” off 1978’s “Head First.”

But it was the album’s rhythmically aggressive and seductive title track where fans got their first glimpse of the authentic John Waite, a no-holds-barred rock n’ roll performer devoted to live performance and making sure every fan in the audience left the concert just as elated and exhausted as the band they’d paid to see.
