Poison frontman Bret Michaels will launch Parti-Gras, a cross-country stadium tour scheduled to kick off in July 2023. Michaels and Poison will stop at both the Hollywood Casino Ampitheater in Missouri on July 28 and in Illinois on July 29, as part of the summer lineup.
Parti-Gras will feature several other notable performers and acts, including Night Ranger and Jefferson Starship, as well as appearances from Journey’s Steve Augeri and Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray.
Michaels attributed forming Parti-Gras as a tribute to his fanbase and noted that rock music aficionados will not be disappointed with the tour’s lineup.
Michaels commented: "I created Parti-Gras as a sincere and grateful thank you to the fans, friends, and family who have rocked with me over the years.
“I promise to deliver positive energy, live, raw, real music, and all the bands will deliver sing-a-long hit after hit songs. Your voice will be hoarse after an epic, big, fun stage show."
Rick Franks, Global Touring Live Nation, said he is confident this year’s tour will deliver the same energy as last year’s events.
He said: "After seeing Bret bring the party in every market of The Stadium Tour, this past year, we are looking forward to more of his 'nothing, but a good vibe, high-energy performing' on The Parti-Gras Tour next summer.”
The 2023 Parti-Gras tour will be presented by Live Nation. Fans can purchase tickets during a pre-sale event, starting December 6, or through general admission on December 9. Michaels will also engage with music lovers during a meet and greet for those who purchase VIP passes.
