Bret Michaels played Community Theatre

Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison, performed at the Community Theatre at Mayo Center for the Performing Arts in Morristown, New Jersey last Saturday, November 27, 2010. NY’s very own, Toxin opened the show with their updated take on 80’s hair band music. It was cool that they got a few people out of their seats with their metal party tunes, but I think it would have totally ruled if they played a power ballad or two in their set. Bret Michaels and his band came out on stage with “Welcome To The Jungle” blaring through the speakers. It was a weird choice, but it did get the audience pumped. Right off the bat, the band cranked into the Poison tunes, starting off with “Talk Dirty To Me” followed by “Look What The Cat Dragged In.” The Soldout Jersey audience was loving it. Mullets were rocking back and forth in the crowd and the ladies were screamng for more, more, more! Bret seemed happy and appreciative to be on stage and gave the crowd what they wanted to hear including some fun covers of “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynrd Skynrd and “What I Got” by Sublime. Bret gave the crowd a much needed workout when he got them out of their seats and waving their hands in the air from side to side. I joined in on the post-turkey dinner aerobics as well. The acoustic guitar was brought out for his slower tunes such as “Something To Believe In” and the classic “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” which gave us all a chance to catch our breath. Bret played for a little over an hour and closed with another Poison hit, “Nothing But A Good Time.” He mentioned that his autobiography, “Roses and Thorns” was coming out in a few months and that Poison was coming back to town in the summer for a big anniversary show. All the shirts, hats and bandannas Bret wore on stage were being auctioned off in the lobby after the show. Every item sold for a couple hundred dollars. What’s cool about that is Bret matches the highest bids and it all goes to his favorite charity, the American Diabetes Association.
