RATT’s Stephen Pearcy Postpones East Coast Shows After Testing Positive For COVID-19

RATT’s Stephen Pearcy has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the singer has been forced to postpone several East Coast shows.

The following statement was issued:

“As many of you may have already heard, Stephen Pearcy has unfortunately been forced to postpone this week’s dates on the East Coast. Out of an abundance of caution, Stephen tested for Covid after learning that others he’d been in contact with had tested positive. To this point, he’s only experienced the mildest of symptoms, and based on his condition and the timeline of his exposure he already appears to be close to a full recovery.

Stephen and his band regret not being able to play this week’s shows, but this is life in 2021, and we all need to be safe, sound and responsible. Tomorrow’s Dec 1 Warrandale PA show has been rescheduled to Feb 16, and the December 3-5 shows in Buffalo, Jordan NY and New Bedford MA are now moving to April 29 – May 1.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out since news broke last night, and to everyone for your understanding in the matter. Just to be clear, the dates listed above are the only impacted shows, and all other dates will play as scheduled. Stephen and his band are looking forward to getting back out as soon as safely possible!

RATT’s Stephen Pearcy Battling Liver Cancer

During a recent interview with Laughingmonkeymusic, RATT’s Stephen Pearcy revealed that he is battling liver cancer. The singer says he was diagnosed with the disease three years ago.

Pearcy said the following:

“How I found out is just through a blood test. I had hepatitis. Well, then, getting another checkup, I found out, ‘By the way, you’ve got a bit of cancer thing going there. We’ve gotta get in there.’ Then your whole world changes. Still, I didn’t feel like it needed to be out there until I started feeling guilty. Like, ‘Wow, man, I can help some people.’ Get blood tests. Take care of yourself.”

He also added:

“Everything’s kind of copacetic now. I’m on a ritual and monitoring things. I don’t know why I’m still here, but, look, I’m appreciating every day and minute above ground here, because all of our peers are seemingly disappearing. And it’s such a drag. But it’s under control.”
