Video: BRET MICHAELS Performs At Downtown Jonesboro BBQ Festival
October 13, 2016
Fan-filmed video footage of POISON singer Bret Michaels and his solo band performing on October 1 at the Downtown Jonesboro BBQ Festival in Jonesboro, Arkansas can be seen below.
Bret recently said that he is hopeful POISON will tour with DEF LEPPARD in 2017.
The multi-platinum "hair metal" rockers haven't done any major touring since taking part in the 2012 "Rock Of Ages" trek with LITA FORD and DEF LEPPARD. Since then, Michaels has been focusing on his solo career and last year released the video for "Girls On Bars", his rock-and-country-crossover track which was written with Grammy Award-winning songwriter Luke Laird.
Bret told NorthJersey.com: "I'm beyond thankful for Rikki [Rockett, drums] and C.C. [DeVille, guitar] and Bobby [Dall, bass]," he said. "These guys are an important part of my life and I'm hoping that POISON and DEF LEPPARD can tour together next spring."
Bret originally mentioned the prospect of a POISON-DEF LEPPARD tour in a July interview with The Salt Lake Tribune. LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen later told the 106.9 The Eagle radio station that he knew nothing about the proposed pairing. "I think that was made up — I think it was Bret Michaels's wishful thinking," he said. "[That was] first I've heard of it. I actually heard that as well, and it's, like, 'No!' But, yeah, we are gonna be touring, but we haven't got anything set in stone yet at all."
POISON and DEF LEPPARD first hit the road together back in 2009, and then again three years later.
POISON appeared at the 2013 Indy 500 Miller Lite Carb Day, but has otherwise been mostly playing private shows, including one in January 2015.
