Bret Michaels Plays LI
Rock On Tour to the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Thursday, September 20 at 8 p.m.
As a rock star, reality star, spokesperson, businessman, and philanthropist, Bret Michaels does more in a single day than most people do in an entire lifetime. Depending on the hour of the day, he’s a cultural icon, a rock god, an entrepreneur, a TV star, a father, the face of the American Diabetes Association, a supercross enthusiast, a solo artist, the Poison frontman, or a generous donor to a myriad of charitable causes. Michaels first rose to fame as the frontman of Poison. As one of rock’s most iconic and enduring bands, Poison defined the fast, gritty, and glamorous rock ‘n’ roll scene. Since the band’s beginning, Poison has achieved massive success – releasing eight studio albums, four live albums and selling more than 30 million records worldwide and 16.5 million records in the U.S. alone. Bret Michaels’ solo career has been equally successful: his most recent solo album, “Custom Built,” released in July of 2010, topped the charts, reaching #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock list. He is currently completing his new album, Get Your Rock On.
