Bret Michaels told SiriusXM's Eddie Trunk: "I'm really excited to see C.C. [DeVille, guitar] and Rikki [Rockett, drums] and Bobby [Dall, bass] again and get together. We're gonna have amazing rehearsals. And that's where you put in all the really hard work, just cutting through the songs we wanna do. But this year, we're really gonna focus on putting back into the set 'I Want Action', 'I Won't Forget You', 'Fallen Angel', some of the stuff that, when we were out with DEF LEPPARD and out with KISS and MÖTLEY [CRÜE] and all these different bands co-headlining, what happened is your set's a little shorter. Now we're gonna put all that stuff in. And we appreciate it don't ever misunderstand me; I love it. And last year with DEF LEPPARD was great. But focusing on rehearsals is gonna be amazing. I'm excited. And I've really gottta say this: we've worked hard on designing the look of the show, making sure that, obviously, the audio is right and visually, it's right. But, as you know, we're still, as POISON, a true, honest-to-God live rock and roll band. I don't even use the in-ears I'm still the monitor guy; I like that feel of an energetic live show. And so it's real honest-to-God, straight-up-in-your-face live rock and roll."
