L.A. Rock Legends ‘Ratt’ to Perform Pre-Race Concert at Auto Club 400
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (March 6, 2013) – Los Angles-based rockers RATT will get race day started in classic rock-and-roll style at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday, March 24 when they perform a pre-race concert beginning at 10am on the FanZone main stage.
Hard rockers Stephen Pearcy (vocals), Warren DeMartini (guitar), Bobby Blotzer (drums), Juan Croucier (bass) and Carlos Cavazo (guitar) – will perform hits including "Round and Round," “Wanted Man,” and “Lay it Down” as well as many other fan favorites, shuttling listeners to a time when metal ruled the earth and real musicians wore eyeliner like a badge of honor.
This year RATT is preparing to enter the studio and begin work on what will be their eleventh studio album, expected to arrive later this year.
RATT released their self-titled first album independently in 1983 and never looked back. Their first major label release, Out of the Cellar proved a multi-platinum breakthrough and was subsequently followed by more platinum smashes including; Invasion of Your Privacy (1985), Dancin' Undercover (1986) and Reach for the Sky (1988).
