It looks like Ratt will be rolling next year — and that’s about all we know at the moment.
The group has posted a simple message on its Facebook page declaring that “Ratt will tour 2018,” with no details about dates or any other information.
This will be the lineup that includes key members Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini and Juan Croucier, who won control of the name last year from drummer Bobby Blotzer, who was touring with his own version of Ratt.
Blotzer, however, has said he continues to keep using the name, although he hasn’t played a show since the court ruling.
Ratt formed during 1976 in Hollywood but had its greatest success during the mid-80s with hits such as “Round And Round,” “Back For More” and “Lay It Down.” Tour dates are expected to be announced soon.
