Reactivated Los Angeles rockers RATT have issued the following update:
"Thanks to all our killer ratt n' roll fans that came out last week to support the West Coast run! We had two sellouts in L.A. and Anaheim and two near-sellouts in Vegas and San Diego! So congrats to all our fans for making this all happen! 25 years of ratt and roll!!!! We hope you enjoyed the new setlist and song selections WE DID! Next up we are heading over to the UK, Sweden and Spain for some shows in June. Stay tuned!!!"
OnTrackMagazine.com has posted a review and photos of RATT's April 18, 2008 concert at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California. Check it out at this location.
Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be viewed below.
RATT celebrated the "Year Of The Ratt" with a very special West Coast U.S. run of dates earlier this month. In honor of their Southern California roots, the band embarked on a four-show mini-tour to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the "Ratt" EP. RATT lead vocalist Stephen Pearcy said, "The EP is what broke us back in '83 on Southern Cal radio. Both L.A. rock stations at the time played songs from the EP, San Diego soon followed. Then we got our deal with Atlantic Records and the rest is history."
RATT recently performed the entire EP along with other RATT faves live on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" to an overwhelming response. Host Bob Coburn expressed that he was "totally blown away" by RATT and that they "flat-out kicked ass" as they delivered one of the best shows in the 27 years of "Rockline".
The band is working on some plans for the summer and will have some major announcements in the very near future.
RATT returned to stores with new DVD and CD releases on July 31, 2007: the first-ever DVD release from the band, "Ratt: Videos From The Cellar: The Atlantic Years", and the audio collection "Tell The World: The Very Best Of Ratt", which features the hard rockers at their studio and live performance peak and includes an unreleased track.
