Legendary rock front man Bret Michaels is coming to Tulsa

Poison singer, reality star to play the Joint on Nov. 20

TULSA, Okla. – One of the biggest names in rock is coming to the Joint when Bret Michaels performs inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on Nov. 20.

Tickets start at $35 and go on sale on Sept. 23.

As the front man for Poison, Michaels led the band to the top of the music charts with more than 25 million records sold and 15 singles peaking in the top 40, including “Talk Dirty to Me,” Nothing But a Good Time,” “Something to Believe In” and the No. 1 smash hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”

In the last seven years Michaels has released three solo albums, starred in three seasons of his VH1 reality show “Rock of Love,” won “Celebrity Apprentice 3” and, in August, hosted the Miss Universe Pageant. A lifelong type 1 diabetic, Michaels earned $390,000 for the American Diabetes Association for winning “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Not only is Michaels touring the country this fall, but he will also release his autobiography “Roses and Thorns” and will star this fall in his VH1 new reality series, “Bret Michaels: Life as I Know It.”

In April, Michaels generated news when he was hospitalized for a massive brain hemorrhage. For days, the 47-year-old singer was in critical condition before stabilizing and eventually being released from the hospital on May 5 after making a full recovery. In July, Michaels was readmitted to the hospital and doctors discovered a patent foramen ovale, which is also known as a hole in the heart. The condition was treated as Michaels finished “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Michaels is currently touring in support of his July release, “Custom Built,” which features “Riding Against the Wind,” the theme song for his new reality show. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Top Independent Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums charts as well as No. 4 on the Top Rock Albums chart.  

The Joint holds 2,700 guests and features three levels of elevated, fixed seating, nine private suites and cutting-edge technology in sound, lighting and video.
