Bret Michaels: Poison/Motley Crue tour was a “pipe dream”

Bret Michaels has come clean on his recent comments about a Poison/Motley Crue tour.

Michaels made reference to a package tour with the two bands during a solo show at Caesars Windsor’s Colosseum last Saturday, which made headlines.

The Poison frontman told People magazine that the idea "is simply a pipe dream."

Both Vince Neil and Tommy Lee have dismissed any plans about such a tour, as both bands head into big anniversary years: 2011 marks 30 years for the Crue and 25 for Poison.

Eric Sherman, President of Tenth Street Entertainment, Mötley Crüe's management, tells People that Michaels knows there is no tour and that "he's trying to will it," and adds that fans of the band can vote on for who they would like to see on the bill.

"Mötley will listen to the fans, not to guys trying to book a tour through the media," says Sherman.

As for Mötley Crüe shutting down the idea, he says, "Oh well, you can't blame me for trying to put together what I thought would be a great tour for the fans."
