Earlier today, hair metal holdovers Poison announced plans for an extensive summer tour with the power-pop act Cheap Trick and the hard rock band Pop Evil.
The tour comes to Blossom on June 12.
“The all original Poison is headlining again this summer,” says Poison singer Bret Michaels in a press release announcing the tour. “It’s going to be a mega concert and party combined. We will be playing all the hits and bringing high energy rock and roll good times. I promise this will be awesome. My friends Cheap Trick and Pop Evil will be joining us as well as some special guests on select dates. Again, I know all the bands with all the hits will be giving 1000%!!! Over the last years, Poison has got to co-headline with some great bands: Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Kiss, Lynyrd Skynyrd, to name a few, but I promise again, C.C., Bobby, Rikki and myself together will bring NOTHING BUT A GOOD TIME!!!”
Beginning at noon today, each band will offer its own exclusive VIP packages and meet and greet opportunities. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday.
