From a press release:

With “A Very Intimate Acoustic Evening with Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo,” fans will receive an up close and personal experience with the artists whose marriage and musical partnership have defied all odds – and withstood the test of time!

The tour will stop at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center (77 Sands Blvd., Bethlehem) on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets, which range from $45-$55, go on sale this Friday, Aug. 21 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at sandseventcenter.com, the Event Center box office, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000.

The world was introduced to Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo’s enduring partnership and rock ‘n’ roll love affair via their 1979 platinum album, “In the Heat of the Night.” They have been making music together ever since. With four Grammys, three American Music Awards, 26 million records sold worldwide, and 19 Top 40 singles, the duo has forged one of the most successful partnerships in rock history.

Their undeniable chemistry and unprecedented sound blaze through one of the largest arsenals of rock hits, including “Love is a Battlefield,” “Heartbreaker,” and the signature “We Belong.” Benatar’s mezzo-soprano vocal range and Giraldo’s trailblazing work as a guitarist, producer, songwriter, and arranger have been selling out concerts and wowing audiences for over three decades.

“We’re so excited to bring this new version of performance to the live show. Songs take on an entirely new character and meaning when they are pared down to their basic form in an intimate setting,” Benatar and Giraldo said.

“The audience will now get to hear what we heard when we originally wrote and constructed the songs they have always loved. Join us for an evening of storytelling and music.”
