Poison may reunite for 2015 tour

80s rockers Poison may regroup for a tour in 2015, according to frontman Bret Michaels.

“It looks like it will happen,” Michaels tells Cleveland Scene. “It’s been a few years — we just want to put together the right package and show to celebrate with everyone.”

Poison last toured in 2012 with Def Leppard as part of the Rock Of Ages trek.

Asked if he has a preference to touring solo or with the band, Michaels says, “The truth of the matter is I just love to play live. With Poison, you have come to expect exactly what you see — big pyro and this huge arena show, With the solo band, it’s a little more raw but just as big and it gives me the chance to explore more of my personal side and share certain elements that maybe don’t come across in Poison. But I love them both.”

The group’s last studio effort was 2007’s collection of covers, “Poison’d”, and their last original album was 2002’s “Hollyweird.”

So, could a reunion tour spark a new Poison album?

“When the time’s right, I’m sure it will happen,” says the singer. “We are all just in different places right now — But we are never done making music.”

Michaels currently has a full schedule of solo dates booked through December; his latest solo album, “Jammin’ With Friends”, was released last year.
