Pat Benatar cancels performance at Western Idaho Fair

Love is a battlefield, Pat Benatar always says. Well, so is touring.

Benatar’s husband and guitarist, Neil “Spyder” Giraldo, recently had emergency eye surgery after experiencing headaches and pain on tour. As a result, Benatar’s performance Aug. 28 at the Western Idaho Fair has been cancelled, along with 11 other tour dates.

The fair is working to find a replacement act.
