PAT BENATAR AND NEIL GIRALDO, SANDY CITY AMPHITHEATER, Wednesday, July 3, 8 p.m., $29-$45
For anyone old enough to remember the first couple years of MTV--back when the channel actually played videos--Pat Benatar was an omnipresent force on the channel, one of the first pop stars to embrace video as a means to get her music to the masses. She was already an established star thanks to songs written with her husband Neil Giraldo, and tunes like "Heartbreaker" and "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" relayed a tough-girl image that was a fresh approach compared to waifish folkies and plastic pop stars competing with her for airtime. Benatar and Giraldo are still married, and still touring and playing sets full of '80s-era hits--far more of them you can probably remember. Expect a night of retro fun in Sandy when they take the stage in Sandy Wednesday night.
