Ratt frontman STEPHEN PEARCY is preparing to return to the stage on Wednesday (21Jul10) to resume the band's world tour, six weeks after undergoing hernia surgery.
Ratt was forced to cancel the European leg of its World Infestation tour with German band Scorpions while the rocker underwent the operation last month (Jun10).
But Pearcy has made a full recovery, and he's eager to get back on the road.
He tells Blabbermouth.net, "Despite the forced break with my surgery, I'm feeling better and being out here on tour with the Scorpions is rehabilitating, to say the least. We're doing different songs from (the album) Infestation and they are going over great! We're mixing up our set and kicking some a**. It's a Scorpion sting with some Ratt 'n' Roll!"
The bands are scheduled to kick off the North American leg of the tour with a show in Grand Prairie, Texas on 21 July (10).
