Poison once again opened this year?s summer tour. Although the song placement was juggled a little, the set list was essentially the same as it has been for many, many years (even their backdrop banner was the same with the exception of strategically placed black tape changing 2011 to 2012) but somehow Poison still delivers those songs with a ton of energy and enthusiasm.

Bret Michaels ? headband and cowboy hat intact ? was in high spirits and extremely interactive with the audience, slapping hands, fist-bumping, waving and pointing to numerous people. Michaels, Rikki Rockett, CC DeVille and part-time Utah resident Bobby Dall all seemed to be getting along fine on stage. And the crowd responded to them as they blasted through another summer of 80s rock anthems including "Talk Dirty to Me," "Unskinny Bop" and "Nothin? But a Good Time."
