Pat Benatar: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Cynthia Rose, New Musical Express, 12 February 1983

LIKE THE rest of the full house on Friday night, I was actually looking forward to seeing Pat Benatar, despite our previous encounters on vinyl. Afer all, she was voted Sex Symbol of '82 in the American rock polls. Plus I like 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' and 'Hell Is For Children' – even if the latter, like all Pat's work, makes no real sense at all.
