A California Mid-State Fair concert this summer is bringing together two of the biggest rock stars of the 1980s: Pat Benatar and Melissa Etheridge.
They’ll perform July 18 at the Paso Robles Event Center, the fair announced Friday.
Etheridge, a two-time Grammy Award winner whose hits include “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” will take the Chumash Grandstand Arena stage first.
She’ll be followed by Pat Benatar, the Grammy-winning singer behind “We Belong,” “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” and “Love Is a Battlefield,” and her husband, producer and songwriting partner, guitarist Neil Giraldo.
