    At least [Never Enough] was a show from the 1980s, and Ratt didn't opt to go the Tokyo Dome route and put out a more recent show...

    But, yeah...saw them twice in the 1980s - once as an opening act, once as a headliner - and neither of those shows left me with the feeling that Ratt were a particularly impressive or compelling arena act. Certainly not in comparison to what bands like Van Halen, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dio were doing live at the time. I'm not saying that Ratt totally sucked live, but Stephen Pearcy (much like, say, Vince Neil) was NEVER a good live singer. The rest of the band were good live...for me, what I remember was the band were never quite as good live as they were in the studio. First time I saw them, they were out touring the Out Of The Cellar album, opening up for Billy Squier. I quite liked Out Of The Cellar (still do), but I remember thinking that they never really...they never took off live and sort of transcended the studio material in performance.

    Second time I saw them as a headlining act, it was a similar experience, where the production qualities of their studio work were aspects they couldn't quite recreate in a live setting. In spite of the periodic explosions and pyrotechnics with the stage production as a headlining act, the sound of the music live came across as sort of thin...without the advantages of multi-tracked guitars and backing vocals, Ratt live didn't have a particularly rich sound.
