Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo @ The Paramount
In the early ’80s, young women first became empowered by celebrating and imitating one of Rock’s premiere female vocalists who pounded, roared, and fought her way into their hearts and up the male-dominated music charts. There were only several others of the kind – women who could make girls tougher then, and now; the late Janis Joplin, Heart’s Ann Wilson, and another mezzo-soprano and Long Island native, Joan Jett.
Pat Benatar was in every way a fearless feminist who made her own rules and blazed her own trail. She broke industry standards in Rock-n-Roll and New Wave both as a female vocalist and as a singer/songwriter. She has won four Grammys, earned nine nominations, two Multi-Platinum albums, five Platinum albums, three Gold albums, and had 19 Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 hits; “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” “Love Is a Battlefield,” “We Belong,” and “Invincible.” She has also been inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
