    Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo returned to Nashville, TN for another rock performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  Pat, Neil, Mick Mahan (bass), and Chris Ralles (drums) performed to about 2,000 fans from the 80′s rock music era.  Since this was a last minute approval, Brian Hasbrook and Tom Thompson were already obligated for other personal events.  This left Mike Arnold to perform all the duties (take photos, take notes for a review, and update our social media throughout the show).  Mike called on our past Concert Blast guest blogger, Terri Gibson, to come to his aide.  Terri obliged to attend the show and write the review.  Thanks Terri!  Enjoy her coverage of the Pat Benatar / Neil Giraldo concert.

        Bewteen a Heart and a Rock Place by Pat Benatar
        Written by Mike Arnold
        Pat Benatar, actually Patricia Mae Andrzejewski, wrote her “thus far” life story in her recent book, “Between a Heart and a Rock Place.”  Pat takes the reader not only on her life’s musical journey, but also through her childhood in New York, being as tough as the boys her age as well as being a very charming girl… then growing up to become a military wife that led to a broken marriage.  The book described Pat growing into a tough woman who knew what she always wanted in life, especially when she met the guitarist in her band, Neil Giraldo.

            Going to see a Pat Benatar concert is like putting a quarter in a classic rock juke box.  She performs hit after hit and her voice still sounds great!  By adding to that wonderful voice, Pat’s husband Neil Giraldo and his screaming guitar licks, you have one of the best shows on the classic rock circuit today.

            Pat didn’t have a new album out to promote this summer but she does have a book out called “Between A Heart And A Hard Place.”  Each city  tour stop became an appearance at a local bookstore to sign copies of the book and to meet her fans.  She was going to be at the Davis Kidd Book Store in Memphis at 12:30pm on the day of the show, so I packed up my bags and took off early that morning so that I could meet up with my friend Julie, who lives in Memphis, and go meet Pat.
