Bret Michaels Doesn’t Think Poison Will Tour Again Until 2025, Teases ‘Party Gras’ Tour For 2023

Married puts a real thorn in his tour plans after The stadium tour ends in September. Although the 80s hair metal act has enjoyed a real boost from the exposure of the massive national trek, it performs every night alongside headliners Def Leppard and Motley Crueit may be another three years before you see them on stage again.

Talking to radio host Eddie Trunk for his SiriusXM Show, “Trunk Nation” on August 1, frontman Bret Michaels explained, “I’m just saying that ’25 is probably when Poison will put together a huge world tour and go back and be incredible. And it will be amazing.”

You can give the guy a card for needing a break after the 36-date, three-month Stadium Tour. Michaels, who is diabetic, was straight admitted early in the trip reportedly due to a reaction to “bad medicine,” forcing Poison to miss the Nashville date.

But actually he has other plans. As Michaels told Trunk, there is a Party Gras ride to get to. Yes, Party Grass. Originally planned for 2022, before it was known that the Stadium Tour would be pushed back two years due to the pandemic, the party will now start in 2023.

“With everything going on in the world, we didn’t know if The Stadium Tour would go ahead [ahead]. I prayed every day – I say, ‘I hope it works. I’ve been waiting since ’20,” Michaels told Trunk. “But for me, this year we had to do the Party Gras Tour. I put together something incredible, and now we’re launching it in ’23. And when I tell you what this is and how we’ve designed it with everybody, it’s an incredible amphitheater ride that’s just going to be … I think it’s going to be insane and going to be the summer party ‘all thriller, no filler ‘ . And you know what I mean when it hits the stage. It’s a really exciting idea.”

Michaels elaborated further, explaining that the Party Gras Tour will be focused on his solo band, but there may be some surprises with additional acts lined up. “This would be my own band in ’23,” he confirmed. “We know [who the other acts are]; we just don’t want to say it yet. … Like I said, it’s all thriller, no-filler, all original songs, nothing but hits that just want to roll. Really, when I use the words ‘nothing but a good vibe’ or ‘nothing but a good time’, it’s going to be that kind of night. And we just pick select dates in all the amphitheaters, the Live Nation amphitheaters, and then take it out to the festivals and everything with that.”

Hang in there, Brett.

The stadium tour takes place now through September 9. Get tickets here.
