From a press release:

After coming to Wilkes-Barre in 2016, it was announced today that Grammy Award-winning duo Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo will play “A Very Intimate Acoustic Evening” at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe on Thursday, June 28 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $45 for regular reserved seating and $55 for premium reserved seating, go on sale this Friday, April 13 at 10 a.m. and will be available at and all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak box office (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe), and Roadies Restaurant and Bar (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe). Penn’s Peak box office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only; no phone orders.

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 26 million records sold worldwide and 19 Top 40 singles, Benatar and her husband Giraldo have formed one of the most successful partnerships in music history. During their nearly four-decade career, they have won an unprecedented four consecutive Grammys, as well as three American Music Awards. Their undeniable chemistry, Benatar’s mezzo-soprano vocal range, and Giraldo’s trailblazing work as a producer, guitarist, and songwriter created some of rock’s most memorable hits, including “Promises in the Dark,” “Hell Is for Children,” “We Live for Love,” “Love Is a Battlefield,” “Hit Me with Your Best Shot,” “Heartbreaker,” and “We Belong.” Their rock and roll love affair has endured for 38 years, and they continue to tour every year, wowing audiences everywhere.

“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.”
