Eighties heartbreaker Pat Benatar will play Hard Rock Hotel and Casino July 2 with her husband Neil Giraldo. Unfortunately Blondie, who just announced she and Benatar will be touring together for the first time later this year, will not be there. But one 1980s icon may be enough. Benatar boasts some cheesy songs like "We Belong," "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," "Heartbreaker," and "Love is a Battlefield," the latter of which was accompanied by an even more amazingly cheesy video. Who knew wicked dances moves were the antidote to rude pimps?
