The 51-year-old rocker is fully recovered from hernia surgery and ready to hit the stage with his band on Wednesday, July 21.

's frontman Stephen Pearcy is preparing to return to the stage on Wednesday, July 21 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 while the rocker underwent the operation in June.

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 July 21.
