Benatar and husband/collaborator Giraldo are stopping in Wichita as part of their tour, during which they are crossing the United States and Canada as a duo. Country artist Brynn Marie will open.

Benatar, best known for hits such as “Heartbreaker” and “Love Is a Battlefield,” was last in Wichita in July of 2010, playing with co-headliner REO Speedwagon to a crowd of 3,500 fans.
