WUPE Favorite Pat Benatar Coming To The Big E
Here's some breaking news for you! Pat Benatar, best known for many classic hits including, "Love Is A Battlefield", "Invincible", "Shadows Of The Night", "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", and many others is coming to the Big E this year.
As reported by WWLP/22 News Springfield, Pat Benatar along with her husband and longtime music partner, Neil Geraldo, will be appearing at the Big E Arena on Sunday, September 26, at 7:30 p.m.
It was back in 1979 when well-regarded record producer Mike Chapman introduced Neil to Pat who had recently signed a contract with Chrysalis Records. Pat and Neil got along great right from the start. In fact, shortly after they were introduced to each other they started working together.
Benatar's first album In the Heat of the Night came out later that year and it featured her very first hit, "We Live For Love", which was written by Geraldo. The couple has been together for more than forty years, with Geraldo performing on every Benatar album and producing all but two of them.
Some of Benatar's other hits include, "Heartbreaker", "Hell Is For Children", "Treat Me Right", "Fire and Ice", "Promises In The Dark", "We Belong", and "All Fired Up".
Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, July 9 at 10 a.m. If you purchase concert tickets prior to the date of the show then they also include admission to the Big E itself. Concert tickets are exclusively available on the Big E's website here.
