Ratt reunite

Eighties US glam rockers Ratt are back! Vocalist Stephen Pearcy, guitarist Warren DeMartini and drummer Bobby Blotzer will hit stage together for the first time since 1999 this Summer for a tour with fellow hair rockers Poison. However plans are afoot for not only a tour but a fully-fledged comeback. The band will continue touring into the Autumn with possible stops in Canada, Europe, Japan, South America and Australia. Joining the three original members onstage will be bassist Robbie Crane and guitarist, former Mötley Crüe frontman, John Corabi.

Ratt sold over 16 million albums in their heyday with hit singles like 1984's Round And Round and Wanted Man from the seminal collection that was Out Of The Cellar - featuring a staccato frenzy of playing from DeMartini. His guitar partner on their most successful albums, Robin Crosby, sadly died from a heroin overdose in 2002.
