RATT Without STEPHEN PEARCY In Monterrey; Video Footage Available

Video footage has surfaced (see below) of RATT performing without singer Stephen Pearcy at the conclusion of the band's concert Friday night (June 27) in Monterrey, Mexico. As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported yesterday, RATT played an abbreviated set in Monterrey after Pearcy appeared to be incapacitated and was unable to complete the show. At one point, according to an article (see below) published in yesterday's (June 29) edition of the El Norte newspaper of Monterrey, Pearcy lost his balance and fell into the crowd before being helped back to the stage by the venue's security personnel, only to fall backwards. He then got up and resumed singing as if nothing had happened. After performing for about 50 minutes, the band abruptly left the stage and reappeared a few minutes later, this time without Stephen. Rhythm guitarist John Corabi, who is best known for having replaced Vince Neil as the frontman for MTLEY CRE in the early 1990s, apologized to the crowd and blamed the mishap on "jet lag" before taking over on lead vocals for a few tracks, including a couple of solo numbers and the RATT songs "Body Talk" and "Round and Round".

Stephen Pearcy - Vocals
Warren DeMartini - Lead Guitar
Bobby Blotzer - Drums
Robbie Crane - Bass
John Corabi - Guitar

"Round and Round":

"Loving You is a Dirty Job":
