One person who appears to know nothing about a POISON/DEF LEPPARD tour in 2017 is LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen, who told the 106.9 The Eagle radio station last month: "Yes, there's some dates coming in [for next year]. POISON? You know, I think that was made up - I think it was Bret Michaels's wishful thinking. [That was] first I've heard of it. I actually heard that as well, and it's, like, 'No!' But, yeah, we are gonna be touring, but we haven't got anything set in stone yet at all."
