Grammy® Award-winning powerhouse duo and rock-n-roll legends Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo bring their undeniable chemistry and unprecedented sound to Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. She sings the songs, and he plays them. Along the way, the union of Pat Benatar and Neil “Spyder” Giraldo has become one of the most successful in music history, and their legacy continues to be celebrated across the globe. The couple is kicking off their 35th Anniversary Tour, and will make a one-night-only stop in Santa Rosa.
The rock duo’s exceptional journey began with their debut album, In the Heat of the Night. They would soon grace the cover of Rolling Stone, and make history with the hit single “You Better Run,” which gave them the distinction of being the first female vocalist and the first guitar player featured on MTV. In 1981, Giraldo began co-producing the pair’s recording sessions, starting with Precious Time. By the end of 1982, they were married in a Hawaiian ceremony.
Benatar and Giraldo’s collection of hits include “We Belong,” “Promises in the Dark,” “Hell Is for Children,” “Love Is a Battlefield,” and “Heartbreaker.” The duo has scored two RIAA-certified Multi-Platinum albums, five RIAA-certified Platinum albums, and three RIAA-certified Gold albums during their storied career.

Following the highly successful 2014 “The Rant is Due Tour”; Lewis Black returns to Santa Rosa with his all new 2015 tour, The Rant is Due Part Deux presented by Live Nation. Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today executing a brilliant trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, his live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.
Lewis Black came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996. Those appearances on The Daily Show led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won the Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy Award-winning “The Carnegie Hall Performance.” Black won his second Grammy Award for his album “Stark Raving Black.” He has also published three bestselling books, Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).
