Benatar To Tour To More than 40 North American Cities This Summer

Pat BenatarPat Benatar's top hits and signature album cuts have been gathered for a new 2-CD and digital release, Pat Benatar: Ultimate Collection, to be released June 24 by Capitol/EMI. Among the collection's 40 tracks, totaling more than two hours of music, are 20 Top 40 chart hits, including "Heartbreaker," "Love Is A Battlefield," "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Fire And Ice," "Invincible," and "We Belong."


Benatar will tour to more than 40 cities across North America this summer, performing her top hits and fan favorites. The tour begins May 16 at Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival in Richardson, TX and includes stops at Detroit's Rockin' On The Riverfront festival and Milwaukee's Summerfest, in addition to headlining concerts in Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and other cities in the U.S. and Canada.

Pat Benatar first burst into international music circles with her 1979 smash, "Heartbreaker." When MTV began beaming into America's living rooms in 1980, the Buggles' "Video Killed The Radio Star" was the first music video to be broadcast by the network.

hit cover of the Young Rascals' "You Better Run" was the second. As she sang "We Belong," the decade belonged to Benatar, who took home an unprecedented four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Rock Performance and racked up six consecutive Platinum and three Gold RIAA sales certifications for the nine albums she released between 1979 and 1989, selling tens of millions of albums around the world.

The diversity of Benatar's fanbase today, a global audience encompassing baby boomers and their Gen X and Gen Y descendents, reflects her music's vast and enduring appeal. Her strong yet vulnerable vocal missives, whether hurled or gently swept over her band's solid rock arrangements, sound as fresh and 'now' today as they did when they were first recorded. Pat Benatar has inspired new generations of musicians as varied as her audience, and her music is an essential entry in the American rock canon.
