Singer Bret Michaels has sent out an update regarding his health. Bret, who is best known for the band Poison, was brought to the hospital on Thursday, June 30, moments before he was scheduled to perform live. Bret has now confirmed that the Nashville event was canceled because he was taken to the hospital for an ‘unforeseen medical complication.’ A few hours later, Bret thanked all of his supporters on Instagram for their good wishes. His message read, “To the incredible fans in Nashville, thank you for all your well wishes!!” ''I was truly fired up to get on stage in the music city and perform, but due to an unknown complication & following hospitalization, it was not possible,” he added.
He also apologized to his followers who were devastated when the event was canceled. “I send my deepest apologies for being unable to rock the stage tonight!!! I’m working on being back 100% very soon & hope you rocked hard with my friends Motley/Leppard/Joan and Classless Act!!!” he remarked. His admirers and followers quickly responded to the post, wishing him good health. One user commented, ''Definitely missed you! I’ll see you next time. Hopefully just not another 11 years lol. Get better soon. PS, Nashville Drs are amazing.” "Sending positive vibes and prayers,” another added. Someone wrote, “Get better soon! Looking forward to seeing you and the boys in Hershey on July 12!” “Get well soon Bret! The people need their champ,” another person remarked.
Bret Michaels has previously had health problems. According to Variety, he experienced a hemorrhage in 2010 that necessitated surgery. He had another surgery to fix a hole in his heart later that year. However, Michaels has remained silent regarding his most recent issues, which resulted in his hospitalization and prevented him from performing. On June 30, Poison was scheduled to appear in Nashville together with Def Leppard, Joan Jett, and Motley Crüe. The trip was originally scheduled to begin in 2020, but it was delayed twice, most recently to this year.
The Stadium Tour officially began on June 16 and is expected to end on September 9, with 36 stops spanning across the United States. Meanwhile, over 50 million albums by Poison have been sold worldwide, with 15 million of those sales taking place in the US. The group was able to place 10 singles, including ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn,’ the band's number-one single, in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
