Review by ~ Patrick

It was great to see lead singer Stephen Pearcy back at lead vocals. I have to say his voice sounded great as it did back in the 80’s. He strutted from one end of the stage to the other slapping hands and banging fist after fist along the way along with his trade mark flicking tongue. The man has an awesome stage presence. He seemed to have been in a great mood and talked several times between songs. It looked like he was very pleased with the crowd and was glad to be playing in Louisiana. He said it had been a long time since they had played here and was glad to be back.

The rest of the band was a tight outfit. Boltzer provided his blasting beats for the others guys to follow. Crane is a very impressive bass player and with these two guys providing the back beat you cant fail. Throw in Cavazo and Demartini and you have a hard rocking band. I never really paid much attention of the solos in Ratt's music but watching Warren Demartini playing was a wake call to go out and buy some of the older albums!

The Ratt songs which stood out for me were; “Way Cool Jr.", "You're in Trouble", I'm Insane", and "Scene of the Crime". Of course the final song was the one that started it all “Round And Round” from the " Out Of The Cellar". This album is classic rock radio stations around the world and has sold almost 4 million copies over the years. It was a excellent 80 minute set.

I was really glad I went. Ratt can still rock the house with the best of them. One of my top 80's comebacks that still can hang with the best!! The whole show was a 8.5 out of 10 points deducted because no fireworks or Mosh Pit...lol

If RATT is coming close to a town near you, I would highly recommend seeing them. I want to say a BIG thank you to Ratt’s Publicist and Rox/Cypress Bayou Casino for allowing us to bring this review to you.
