POISON singer Bret Michaels has confirmed to the Cleveland Scene that the band is in talks to hit the road in 2015. "It looks like it will happen," he said. "It's been a few years. We just want to put together the right package and show to celebrate with everyone."
Asked about the status of a new POISON studio album, Michaels said: "When the time's right, I'm sure it will happen," he said. "We are all just in different places right now — but we are never done making music."
POISON drummer Rikki Rockett recently told the "Iron City Rocks" podcast that the band has been doing "corporate gigs for different companies, which are fun, and they pay very well. It gives us a chance to all get together and play. And, in fact, we have one in October and we have one in January . But they are the only shows that POISON is doing this year; we are not doing a tour this year. There is a few things that are being thrown around right now by our management for next spring, and we'll just have to see."
Rockett took to Twitter in February 2014 to complain that POISON couldn't hit the road this summer because a certain member of the glam-metal act was "making it a problem."
POISON last toured the U.S. in 2012 as part of the "Rock Of Ages" package with DEF LEPPARD and LITA FORD.
The last POISON album was 2007's covers set "Poison'd!", while the band's last collection of new, original music was 2002's "Hollyweird".
To celebrate POISON's 25th anniversary, 35 of the multi-platinum band's top hits and fan favorites were gathered for "Double Dose Of Poison: Ultimate Hits", a career-spanning 2CD and digital collection which was released in May 2011 by Capitol/EMI.
