Ratt announce that their shows in 2020 will be rescheduled to 2021
Sad news for Ratt fans as the group led by frontman Stephen Pearcy and bassist Juan Croucier will not be playing any shows in 2020 since they have announced that all of their concerts for 2020 will be rescheduled to 2021.
The following message as posted on Ratt‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“For the health and safety of our fans and those involved with the production of RATT concerts; shows scheduled for the 2020 calendar will be rescheduled for 2021.”
Ratt were seemingly back on track after a tumultuous last few years that included litigation that eventually seemingly put an end to drummer Bobby Blotzer‘s version of the group and a bad run of shows in 2018 where Pearcy was suffering from knee issues that affected his live performances with the band.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its concert review of Ratt‘s concert at the Showplace Theater in Buffalo, New York, USA back in mid-December 2019:
“After hearing some great tunes playing from the venue’s PA system — consisting of Black ‘N Blue‘s “Hold On To 18”; the triple Judas Priest shot of “Metal Gods”, “Breaking The Law” and “Night Crawler”; Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Rock ‘N’ Roll Rebel” and AC/DC‘s “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” — while Hair Nation‘s stage set up got dismantled and everything was finalized for Ratt to take the stage, it was time for the main event. I knew that the band would sound tight. The only question mark was how Pearcy would sound. I was thrilled to hear that Pearcy‘s vocals sounded great! He was actually singing most of the time rather than kind of talking his way through the lyrics. Really, I was impressed with his singing. Pearcy will never be known as one of the top vocalists but he has a very distinctive voice that really defines the Ratt sound. With Pearcy in fine form vocally and looking physically fit, I knew that Ratt would pull off a great set and that’s exactly what they did. You have to hand it to Pearcy for looking like he’s in great shape at the age of 63 and especially compared to some of his contemporaries who will remain nameless (you know who they are!).”
