Council Confirms CCR for Music and Arts

Four-time Grammy winner and the voice behind 19 Top 40 singles, Pat Benatar, and her explosive steel bending guitar player husband, Neil Giraldo, will take to the stage at Yucaipa’s Performing Arts Center (YPAC) Outdoor Stage on Sunday, Oct. 13.

In 1979 the world was treated to the couple’s first joint platinum debut album, In The Heat Of The Night, which included the classic “Heartbreaker,” as well as the Giraldo-penned hit, “We Live For Love.” The following year, Benatar and Giraldo found their place in music history as the first female and first guitarist, respectively, to ever appear on MTV, with the video for “You Better Run,” taken from 1980’s Grammy winning album Crimes of Passion– an album that also included the gold-certified single, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.”

The Benatar/Giraldo YPAC concert is guaranteed to be exceptionally popular – probably a sell-out – so tickets will sell quickly. If you want tickets to this iconic duo’s concert set an alarm on your phone for this Friday to be at the ready when tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Prices had not been announced as of publication time.

Box Office hours are: Tuesday through Saturday 12 to 6 p.m. For additional information and/or questions, contact the Bos Office at: (909) 500-7714.
