Ratt cancel European tour

Ratt have been forced to cancel their upcoming European tour dates. Vocalist Stephen Pearcy will be undergoing urgent hernia surgery this week.  The band regrets missing the European dates on the heels of the release of their first album in eleven years, Infestation, which enjoyed a high chart debut in European territories.

Ratt  shares this disappointment with all their European fans who planned to attend the shows at Sweden Rock, Sauna Open Air Festival, UK Download, Hellfest, Grasspop and Gods of Metal as well as their other dates. The band is looking into rescheduling as  many of the shows as possible.

With the announcement that they have had to pull out of the Download Festival, organisers have announced they are working hard to find a replacement as they will not move anyone to the main stage. If they cannot find a replacement then stage times will be changed.

Pearcy’s doctors anticipate a full recovery in time for Ratt’s North American touring schedule, which includes a run with The Scorpions, beginning in July and running through September.

We wish Pearcy a speedy recovery.
