What better way for a band to show its love for its fans than by playing a free show in their hometown? Ratt, who earned their spot in the Sunset Strip’s legendary and historical rock pantheon with a parade of hook-filled anthems that went on to define the ‘80s, will play a free, “Fan Appreciation” show at the Key Club in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 29.

That’s right. We said “free!” No gimmicks. No fine print. No tricks. The show is 100 percent free for fans anxious to Ratt ‘n’ Roll on a hot July night!

This free show is presented as part of the Sunset Strip Summer Concert Series and is being sponsored by BING. The show will be filmed for a forthcoming, feature-length documentary about the famed Sunset Strip, where some of the most culturally relevant bands of the past four decades were spawned. The documentary will also feature X representing the ‘70s; Jane’s Addiction representing the ‘90s; Pussycat Dolls representing the ‘00s; and of course, Ratt representing the ‘80s.

Tickets are available here: www.therattpack.com/contests/lagiveaway, so get them now, because they are guaranteed not to last.

Ratt’s new album, Infestation, their first studio effort in over a decade, is in stores now. The band is currently touring with The Scorpions and will remain on the road through September. Infestation has been celebrated as one of best albums of Ratt’s career. Revolver said the record “plugs directly into the sound and spirit of their glory days” while Guitar Player pointed out that Infestation has “killer tones and great technique.”
