Bret Michaels has teased an “incredible amphitheater tour” in 2023 with his solo band called the Parti Gras Tour. The Poison frontman shared that his solo run had been pushed back due to this year’s launch of The Stadium Tour with Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard and Joan Jett after a two year delay due to the pandemic.

Said Michaels: “I put something together incredible and now we’re gonna launch that in ’23. And when I tell you what this is and the way we’ve designed it with everybody, it’s an incredible amphitheater tour that’s just gonna be, again, I think it’s gonna be insane, and gonna be what we call ‘The All Thriller, No Filler Summer Party,’ and you’ll know what I mean when it hits the stage. It’s really an exciting idea. We have a few of those select dates til the end of the year, but the big thing kicks off in ’23.”

Michaels didn’t reveal information as to who will be joining him on the trek, but teased:  “We know [who will be performing], but we just don’t want to say it yet. When you see the concept that I wrote up, I think, I think people — it’s just a great. Like I said, it’s an ‘all thriller no filler, all original singer, nothing but hits’ [tour] that’s just gonna roll. “

Michaels also confirmed that Poison will be taking a break after The Stadium Tour wraps. Said Michaels “In ’25 is probably when Poison will put a humungous world tour together and go back and be incredible. My Parti Gras, this entire amphitheater thing we’re doing and festivals — as soon as we knew we were doing The Stadium Tour, we moved that to ’23, and we got to do The Stadium Tour which is incredible and the Poison standalone shows.”
