What a show for some Ratt & Roll! It was the band’s 1989 tour! On January 28,1989, they made their way to The Palace having stopped in Grand Rapids the night before. Special guests Kix and Britney Fox opened the show. Ratt’s “Reach for the Sky” album was out and I could not wait to hear the song “Way Cool Jr!” The song was already in heavy rotation on MTV about every hour it seemed. I got this pic at the end of the show by asking a roadie to toss me the one that was left on stage!

Don’t miss Ratt at the Fillmore on December 28th!
