The '80s hard-rock band Poison are planning a summer 1999 festival tour called "Exiled From Mainstream," which will probably include fellow '80s rockers Def Leppard and Whitesnake, according to Poison lead singer Bret Michaels. "It's going to be like a Lollapalooza for hard rock," said Michaels, whose first solo album, A Letter From Death Row, is out this week as a companion to his film of the same name.

"It's gonna be no-ego, straight-out, one-big-stage and just play and have fun," Michaels said of the tour, adding that it will kick off Memorial Day weekend.
