Bret Michaels, the lead singer of Poison, recently shared exciting news about the band’s upcoming tour. During a Q&A session aboard Rock Legends Cruise XI, Michaels revealed that the band plans to reunite their original lineup for a big stadium and arena tour in 2025. Michaels affirmed that the tour would feature all the original members of the band, including C.C DeVille on guitar, Bobby Dall on bass, Rikki Rockett on drums, and himself.

Poison’s Original Lineup and Future Plans

Michaels, who has known his bandmates since junior high, expressed how important the original lineup is for him.

“I wouldn’t be here without Bobby or Rikki or C.C. And then, as you go along, we’ve been together a long time… still great friends,” Michaels shared.

He also talked about their most recent tour, The Stadium Tour, which took place in 2022. Poison performed alongside iconic bands such as Def Leppard, Motley Crue, and Joan Jett, making it an unforgettable experience for Michaels. “When you’re out there with Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe and Joan Jett, you’re talking A-plus awesomeness. And we just came out and brought it,” Michaels said.

In a previous interview with Eddie Trunk on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation, Michaels mentioned that the band would regroup in 2025 and possibly release some new tracks.

“We’re gonna bring all the Poison greatest hits reunion and make it part of what Parti-Gras [solo tour] is. We’ll make it the Poison reunion Parti-Gras and bring a lot of great bands and just without a doubt unleash all those Poison greatest hits,” Michaels said.

Poison’s Musical Direction

The band’s most recent album, Poison’d!, was released in 2007, and they haven’t released any new material since then. In 2017, drummer Rikki Rockett shared that the band had no interest in creating new music due to the limited interest from fans. Rockett expressed that even if they wrote a hit song, they weren’t sure if fans wanted to hear it.

“We could write the second coming of ‘Talk Dirty To Me’, and I don’t know if people wanna hear it or not, and that’s a frustrating thing; it really is,” Rockett said.

However, he also pointed out that it is important to remain relevant in the music industry for loyal fans who are excited to hear their favorite band’s new music.

Poison fans can look forward to an upcoming tour with the original lineup in 2025. Michaels promised that the band would not disappoint their fans during this reunion tour. Fans can also expect to hear Poison’s greatest hits, and with the possibility of new tracks being released, it’s an exciting time to be a fan of the band.
