Pat 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 Times 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.
