Bret Michaels Says Poison & Def Leppard To Tour Together In 2017

July 28, 2016

According to an interview with The Salt Lake TributeBret Michaels was asked about a possible Poison reunion, to which he responded, "The honest answer to that is I absolutely hope so, and next year it'll be Poison and Def Leppard. The last time we were out was, I think, 2012, and we'll go out and bring it again, and it'll be insane."

Poison's last public show was in 2013 during the Indy 500 Miller Lite Carb Day, and has only been playing a handful of private dates since then.

Poison drummer Rikki Rockett has been outspoken about Bret Michaels' decision to dedicate so much time in his solo career, saying, "I don't know that Bret wants to do another record with us. I think he'll do shows, I think he'll do maybe a tour."

"Poison is my baby, you know what I mean?" says Rockett. "Thirty years. I don't wanna kill it off. But at the same time, it will get killed off if we don't do anything. It'll just automatically start to suffocate itself. And so, it's time to do something. This year is definitely decision time."
