Webster PRPat Benatar, along with her husband and longtime guitarist Neil Giraldo, will help Fox News Channel usher in 2013 on Monday night as part of a special called All American New Year. Benatar and Giraldo will be among several performers featured on the hour-and-a-half show, which airs live from ***** Square in New York City at 11:30 p.m. ET.
Benatar fans will have the opportunity to text New Year's wishes that will be shown on screen during the program via a special ticker. The special's entertainment lineup also includes classical singer Sarah Brightman and the cast of the 1950s rock 'n' roll-themed Broadway musical The Million Dollar Quartet.
For Benatar and her hubby, the New Year's appearance will kick off what looks like another busy touring year. Their 2013 itinerary currently is mapped out from a January 22 concert in Charlotte, North Carolina, through an April 23 gig in Durham, North Carolina. For two of the scheduled shows -- February 5 in Sioux City, Iowa, and February 6 in Moline, Illinois -- Pat and Neil will open for Journey. The concerts, which also feature Loverboy, are makeup dates for fall performances that were postponed when Journey singer Arnel Pineda came down with laryngitis.
