So, this Poison show was actually a part of the now-annual Def Leppard summer tour in which they headline with a really good second bill and the most-excellent Tesla. Def Leppard, while good, was the same as previous. Tesla, as we've clearly established in this blog is always excellent. See our previous reviews below on each of these bands.
I was excited to see Poison. As with the previous Def Leppard second acts, I hadn't seen Poison live in forever and was really looking forward to them. They did not disappoint. The band sounded great and Bret Michaels pulled off the vocals very admirably. While Michaels has been touring on and off solo for awhile, I'm not sure when the last time the whole band had toured so they didn't have too many surprises in the set list. They played pretty much what you'd expect and the crowd loved it. I am sure Poison viewed this tour as a test to determine if they could headline. It was clear that they could so no doubt we'll see them go on tour in 2018 with another 1st or 2nd tier 80's band in tow. And when they do, go see them if you're a fan. You'll enjoy it.
