<strong>LOGAN —</strong> The threat of rain didn’t keep fans away from Friday night’s Cruise In concert, as Pat Benatar took the stage and performed a 90 minute set, including many of her hits, spanning her 34 year career.
Gusting winds and rain postponed the start of the show for about 20 minutes, as crews tried to keep the stage and equipment dry. “What a crazy day this has been,” joked Benatar, once she took the stage in front of 4000 people in the Cache County Fair Grounds.
As temperatures cooled off and the clouds cleared, Benatar along with her husband and guitarist, Neil Giraldo began the show with their 1988 hit “All Fired Up.” Minutes later, fans pointed and cheered as a rainbow appeared directly over the stage while the band was performing “We Belong.”
In between songs, Giraldo, who has been married to Benatar for 31 years joked with the crowd about loving the water in Utah. “You have good tasting water here,” he said.
Fans joined in singing as Benatar performed “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” She finished the night with a medley of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” and one of her biggest singles “Heartbreaker.”
Benatar’s concert was one of the highlights of this year’s Cache Valley Cruise In. The 31st annual car show is the biggest in the state and attracts car enthusiasts from around the country.
