According to Syracuse, New York's WSYR-TV, POISON singer Bret Michaels' made an appearance at Syracuse's CNY Regional Market Thursday (August 5) despite the postponement of his show there.

The tour buses rolled up early Thursday morning, and the band looked out the window to see absolutely nothing. "It's very unusual, very," said production manager Joey Stumpp. "We pride ourselves on being very organized and together."

Concert promoter Mike Banks had a contract to do a full show but postponed the concert, without informing the band. "Never once has the idea of rescheduling come up," said guitarist Pete Evick.

Wednesday, concert promoter Mike Banks told NewsChannel 9 the show at the CNY Regional Market been postponed due to sluggish ticket sales.

Evick says Banks did not live up to his end of the bargain. He had until 9 p.m. Wednesday to pay the deposit the group was supposed to receive prior to the concert. The group says, in typical situations, the deposit is collected well before the concert, but they extended the deadline until Wednesday evening.
