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. 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 reimagining 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.
In a pop culture world defined by its perpetual changes, the partnership of singer songwriter Pat Benatar and producer-musician Neil Giraldo has been a potent, steadfast union that has soared to the top of the charts and into fans’ hearts on their own terms. Her staggering vocals and take-no-prisoners attitude, along with his trailblazing artistry as a guitarist, producer, and songwriter, forged the undeniable chemistry and unique sound that created eternal rock hits including We Belong, Invincible, Love Is A Battlefield, Promises In The Dark, We Live For Love, Heartbreaker and Hell Is For Children.
Their stunning achievements are a testament to their vision. Together, Benatar and Giraldo have created two multi-platinum, five platinum and three gold albums, as well as nineteen Top 40 hits. They have sold over 36 million records worldwide and have won an unprecedented four consecutive GRAMMY® awards. They have also been feted with three American Music Awards, a People’s Choice Award, a 2008 induction into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, and most recently have become Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
