Why Bret Michaels may not be in Michigan for a while after ‘Parti-Gras’ 2024

Bret Michaels may not be in Michigan for a while after his upcoming “Parti-Gras” 2024 summer tour. The Poison frontman will be at Pine Knob on Friday, August 23rd and he’s bringing along Eagles guitarist Don Felder, Chris Janson of “Buy Me A Boat” fame, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and Foreigner’s Lou Gramm, who said 2024 will be his last year performing.

Michaels, who just turned 61 a few days ago on March 15th, told Blabbermouth.net that it could be a while before he tours again after his 2024 tour due to some health issues.

“I’ve always stated that music is a universal language that is meant to unite us, excite us and never divide us. It is a soundtrack to our everyday lives and I truly look forward to giving every bit of energy I’ve got in 2024 and leave it all up there on the stage every night,” Michaels told Blabbermouth. “However, in 2025, in light of some recent medical results and setbacks, and with much discussion and real advice from my doctors and family, I will be taking most, if not all, of 2025 off.

Michaels says other than possibly a few select shows with the Bret Michaels Band and possibly some concerts with Poison, he needs to “recharge the batteries and get a good, much-needed physical tuneup.”

Michaels, who has diabetes, has had a number of health issues over the years, including a brain hemorrhage and skin cancer.

He last performed in Michigan last summer when his very first ever “Parti-Gras” concert took place at Pine Knob with Night Ranger, Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath and former lead singer of Journey, Steve Augeri.
