Pat Benatar and REO Speedwagon, together again?

In their quest to prove that lightning may indeed strike twice, the two acts have partnered up again for 'Love on the Run,' an extended summer tour that will take them to arenas, amphitheaters and, yes, casinos across the country. There's even one date at a California winery.

"Listen to any of their records and you hear Pat's amazing vocal with Neil's powerful yet artistic guitar work as a perfect compliment."
We're pretty sure Benatar's camp feels the same way about REO Speedwagon. In a release about the upcoming tour, Benatar says that "it should be a blast for us as well as the audience." If they're having fun, everybody's having fun.
