Ratt Announce 2019 Tour Dates
The “new breed” lineup of Ratt confirmed a 17-date tour which will kick off this weekend and run sporadically until October.
The first show takes place at the Domination Festival in Mexico City, Mexico tonight (May 4) and the last takes place at the Fronterizo Festival III in Tijuana, Mexico. In between are 14 concerts in the U.S. and another in Canada. You can see all the dates below and get ticketing details at their website.
Joining original frontman Stephen Pearcy and bassist Juan Croucier are guitarists Jordan Ziff and Chris Sanders plus drummer Pete Holmes.
The lineup was revealed last July, after several years of turmoil in terms of membership and legal battles over the band name. Referring to the confusion and doubt the problems had caused, Croucier said that this “new breed” aimed to secure “a level of class.”
“The group has been through a lot in recent years, some of which is not exactly flattering, and we're out to sort of change that and give it a level of class,” he said. “Look, some things with rock bands are better left unsaid, and a lot of times when dirty laundry gets aired, nobody wins that. … People change, people's objectives and agendas change, and all Stephen and I are trying to do is keep the group moving forward in a positive way and give the Ratt fans what they love, and what we love as well. So there's nothing really other than that.”
