Pat Benatar Hits the Road with Journey

She was and still remains, America’s favorite bad girl.  Sizzling hot, her unforgettable single, “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” is a featured attraction for the intensely vivid musical, “Rock of Ages”, although it’s been implied, Pat Benatar would like to hit with a few of her more gnarly songs, like “Love is a Battlefield” or “Hell is for Children”. She’ll definitely get the chance as she teams up with Journey for a nationwide tour.

She isn’t coming alone.  The four time Grammy winner will be accompanied by husband, Neil Geraldo, who will be accompanied by his steaming guitar and his unstoppable talent.  Just in case the fantastic duo and the legendary rock group, Journey, don’t leave their audience screaming in their seats and passing out from over-exposure to raw, unchained music, the air-splitting rock band, Loverboy, will be there to make sure the rafters are blown apart and that temperatures are rising.

Hailing originally from Calgary, Alberta, Loverboy got a slow start in the United States, but that changed quickly once they signed up with Colombia Records of Canada.  With four platinum albums under their belt and over two hundred shows, appearing with bands such as ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, Kansas, and Def Leppard, the American record labels must be squirming in their sears for not snapping up the group when they could.

Journey has been revamped and Internationalized over the years, with a number of musicians replacing the various band members, but they still have that awesome golden lead guitar, Neal Schon, alumni of one of the untouchable icon of classic rock music, Santana, as well as the sterling tones of bass/ vocals original member, Ross Valory.

It will be an extraordinary line-up.  With hit singles like “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” and “Turn Me Loose”, Loverboy has that snap your fingers, get out there and dance beat of the rolling eighties.  Journey never disappoints with their incredible vocals, and versatile musical arrangements that sometimes verge on hard rock but that always have the soaring overtones of unmistakable classical rock music.  And Pat Benetar?  You decide.  She’s hard.  She’s wicked.  She belts.  She’s rock at its best and she knows it.
