Ratt Cancels European Tour

Resurgent '80s rockers Ratt have been forced to cancel their upcoming European tour dates. Vocalist Stephen Pearcy will be undergoing urgent hernia surgery this week. The band issued regrets about 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.
Some of the cancelled shows include 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.
Despite the surgery, 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.
