Poison to kick off amphitheatre season in Raleigh & Charlotte
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS EXTREME & JACKYL
FIRST HEADLINE TOUR IN FIVE YEARS
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY MARCH 10
POISON, one of rock’s most high-energy and iconic bands, will perform all its greatest hits as they headline select dates for the first time in over a decade. This spring will see all four original members — Bret Michaels, Bobby Dall, Rikki Rockett and C.C. DeVille — join together to play these limited headline dates in the U.S. and Canada. The dates will coincide with POISON‘s co-headlining tour with DEF LEPPARD and special guest TESLA throughout the spring and summer.
The first POISON headline date will be Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek Raleigh on Friday April 28, followed by PNC Music Pavilion Charlotte on Saturday April 29 with special guests EXTREME and JACKYL. Tickets go on sale Friday March 10 at 10am at LiveNation.com, the venue box offices, Ticketmaster, or by phone 800-745-3000.
Although they have co-headlined in the past with DEF LEPPARD, MÖTLEY CRÜE and KISS, to name a few, these will be POISON‘s first headline dates in select markets in over ten years.
States Michaels: “I’m really looking forward to the POISON tour. It’s going to be incredible playing all the hits and putting on a hell of a high-energy rock show for the three generations of awesome fans.”
POISON appeared at the 2013 Indy 500 Miller Lite Carb Day, but has otherwise been mostly playing private shows, including one in January 2015. The band hasn’t done any major touring since taking part in the 2012 “Rock Of Ages” trek with DEF LEPPARD and LITA FORD. Drummer Rikki Rockett was recently declared cancer free after undergoing an experimental treatment. He was diagnosed with oral cancer back in 2015.
