Poison’s Bret Michaels ‘Kept Throwing Good Vibes’ for Motley Crue Reunion
A big announcement is coming later today from Poison, as per the "mysterious" countdown on their website. Unless you've been living under a rock, you can figure the announcement is most likely regarding the rumored 2020 stadium tour with Def Leppard and the recently reunited Motley Crue.
Poison's Bret Michaels told Bionic Buzz he "kept throwing good vibes" for the Crue to reunite, and essentially confirmed the tour rumors without actually saying yes.
"I always try to throw what I call gratitude and a positive attitude out there," the singer explained. "So I kept throwing the good vibes out there. I said, 'It would be insane for the fans if we had Def Leppard and Poison, and then if Motley Crue would pull it back together, that would be incredible.'"
"It's only a rumor right now, but I'm thinking this week early, we may be mentioning something. It'll be incredible."
Someone's clearly excited.
Michaels added that he hopes the members of the bands will all end up onstage together at some point during the show for a jam session. "We're hoping that that's gonna happen," he enthused. "But no matter what happens, I ask for one thing — that all the bands on this put an amazing, amazing show on for the fans, that's all. Everyone's having fun. 'Cause we want the fans to have fun, but I wanna have the time of my life too."
Poison seem to be the only one of the three acts to making the official tour announcement. Def Leppard have been completely silent since the reports of the tour started, and the members of Motley Crue have been making subtle comments here and there regarding the news, including Nikki Sixx's tweet last night (Dec. 3), which alluded to the countdown on Poison's site. "Tic Toc motherfuckers...." the bassist wrote.
Stay tuned for later this afternoon when the countdown is up.
