About the Artist
Bret Michaels got his
start in hard rock with the band Paris which he formed with Rikki Rockett, Bobby Dall, and Matt Smith. The band stayed together
for a few years, rocking crowds all over the world before unceremoniously breaking up. Turning lemons into lemonade, Michaels
wrote the song Every Rose Has Its Thorn about the breakup and formed the band Poison who would score the biggest hit of Michaels'
career with the song. In the mid Nineties Poison went on a hiatus after Michaels got in a serious car crash and needed time
to rehabilitate. The band announced a 1999 reunion tour and Michaels began splitting time between his solo career as well
as his time with Poison.
While he had already garnered a lot of attention as the singer of
Paris, it was the release of the single Every Rose Has Its Thorn with Poison that skyrocketed Michaels and his new band into
superstardom. The single would be regarded as one of the premiere power ballads of the 80's. Poison would go on to become
one of the biggest glam metal bands on the late 80's and early 90's. Their second and third albums, Open Up and Say... Ah!
and Flesh & Blood both followed as multi platinum records. The band had clearly established themselves as one of the top
metal bands in the world and Every Rose Has Its Thorn still receives heavy airplay to this day.
have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see the beloved Bret Michaels
making his way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as Michaels picks up his guitar and approaches the mic. A
hush falls over the crowd as Michales thanks them and launches into a fan favorite like Every Rose Has Its Thorn, Right Now,
Right Here, Open Road, or All I Ever Need. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night.
Years of recording and performing on tour with some of the biggest bands in the world have allowed Bret Michaels to perfect
his live show and stand alone as one of the premiere hard rock acts on the road today. The high energy output from Michaels
and his band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along.
Michaels co-owns a production company with Charlie Sheen and helped produce the 1998 film A Letter from Death Row which he
also wrote, directed, and starred in. He has appeared on the television shows Yes, Dear, Celebrity Apprentice, Nashville Star,
The Chris Isaac Show, Don't Forget the Lyrics, and several others. He is strongly involved in supporting the troops and has
toured Iraq to play concerts on military bases and been heavily involved in Operation: Homefront which works closely with
the Wounded Warriors Foundation which helps provide support for injured veterans.
