Today regarded as a great glam-metal punk group, Poison grew out of the same wild impulse that spawned the New York Dolls, Kiss, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, and the Sex Pistols. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania natives Bret Michaels (vocals), C.C. DeVille (guitar), Bobby Dahl (bass), and Rikki Rocket took their act to L.A. and exploded onto the club scene with their over-the-top, no-holds-barred live shows that made audiences hysterical! Streetwise, tumultuous, hedonistic, and unforgettable in flamboyant costumes, hair, and make-up, Poison roared up the charts with their multi-platinum albums Look What the Cat Dragged In (1986) and Open Up and Say...Ahh! (1988), featuring the smash hit single, Every Rose has its Thorn.
Poison's history has been as controversial off-stage as on, punctuated by such notorious incidents as the Pamela Anderson sex-tape scandal, recurrent drug rumors, off and on bust-ups, and the never-to-be-forgotten fist-fight at the 1991 MTV Music Awards. But love 'em or hate 'em, Poison is the real thing! This band's live performances are legendary -- monsters! -- with best-in-the-business special effects and the band's signature, hard-driving, blow-your-mind sound. Fans who know will tell you, If you want glam metal -- you've GOT to get tickets to Poison!
