Bret Michaels, Rikki Rockett, Bobby Dall and C.C. DeVille were in fine form as they opened their set with ?Look What the Cat Dragged In? and ?Ride the Wind.? Michaels then paused to thank the crowd, announcing that two attendance records had been broken on Sunday. Michaels said that this year?s festival broke an all-time attendance record, and also that Sunday?s attendance broke the single-day record.
Michaels then dedicated ?Something to Believe In? to all of the men and women in the armed forces fighting oversees. As he ordered the house lights up, a sea of waving arms was revealed while he provided the audience with a great rendition of the song. Poison continued on through their set that included a cover of Grand Funk Railroad?s ?We?re An American Band,? along with signature tunes ?Unskinny Bop? and ?Every Rose Has It?s Thorn.?
As Poison finished with ?Talk Dirty to Me? a large crowd (the largest of the festival at the second stage) became restless while waiting for master guitarist Zakk Wylde and his band Black Label Society. Chants of ?B-L-S, B-L-S? could easily be heard across the grounds before it was replaced with some boo birds when Poison came back onto the main stage to play ?Nothing but a Good Time.?
