New Ratt tour dates featuring the Blotzer'less new, almost all surviving main members lineup lol  ::)

I may actually check out the Philly show cause it's at a cool venue I like.

Nice. I've never seen RATT perform, but I saw Stephen Pearcy one time in the early 2000's and it was a pretty good show. I'd love it if these guys came to Canada. I've heard some recent clips where Pearcy's voice was less than stellar, but I'd still go see him.
That Man/Machine Imperfection guy didn't post too much, but he was pretty much always right.

Will definitely see the new line up if they play near me. Love Warren as a guitarist!

Warren kicks ass, and Robin Crosby is certainly missed

One of my favorites that wasn't put up yet

Live footage of the Ratt Philly show Thursday night at the TLA. This one hurts  >:(
I had my eyes on this show for a while, cool venue, close to home, reasonable ticket price. but my work schedule was brutal this week, I couldn't do it. Looks like I missed a great fuckin show.
Warren and Cavazo sounding great, DeGrasso is a good fit, Stephen sounds better than a few years back when I saw them at M3 Festival in Md.

I saw Ratt for the first time in April 1984 opening for Ozzy Osbourne on the Bark At The Moon tour. They were added about three days before the show after Slade canceled due to singer Noddy Holder developing nodes on his throat.

Out Of The Cellar had just been released, with many in the crowd booing them. Little did they know that the single Round and Round would eventually explode later that summer on MTV.

I also saw them in March 1989 on the Reach For The Sky tour. Britny Fox and Kix opened. Good times.  :)

This is interesting, rumor has it Pearcy and Croucier have fired DeMartini and Cavazo is not happy and may leave as well. The never ending drama of Ratt lol

Real housewives of The Rainbow these guys are lol.

If true DeMartini will be hard to replace.  And a shame.

Saw them with Blotzer, Pearcy and DeMartini headlining a festival night in 2010 and something was flat about the performance.  Fast forward to 2013 and Croucier back on bass, backing vocals , and those stage moves and it was a much improved Ratt.  Spark was back. Saw them last year again at Rocklahoma with Jimmy Degrasso on drums and even better yet as he's much better on the kit than Blotz. 

Wish the source was better than Blotzer but if any truth to Warren trying to get shady with their publishing rights, could be back.to the courts

As much as certain individuals like to bash Queensryche for dropping the ball on promoting the Todd albums, I think this band totally cluster fucked their opportunities at promoting Infestation and capitalizing on a bigger tour for that record. They lose DeMartini and Cavazo they may as well call it a day now. Too much legal bullshit, lineup rearranging, in fighting. This band has become the butt of many jokes and bad press over the years.

.........And for good measure Blotz weighs in to trash the band members and go on to say someday hopefully the classic Ratt lineup can one day play again.  ;D make it stop  ::)
