Rock out with Poison at Foxwoods Resort Casino!
In its all original line up POISON (Bret Michaels C.C. DeVille Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett) has kept it rocking, real and relevant that will bring their own style, unbelievable live energy and hit songs to the big stage. Relentless from the ground up and forged in the hell fires of the Pennsylvania and Los Angeles club scenes they smashed their way up as an independent band who bet on themselves. Bringing a one part song, one part party and no holds barred full throttle totally energetic and live stage performances, Poison paid it’s dues in the small bars and night clubs of the upper east coast. The band appreciated other artists and although it was tough to original music heard in bars, Poison set their sights on having original material and soon realized they needed to head west to tackle the clubs of Los Angeles that welcomed original artists in hopes of getting a record deal. Selling everything they owned, putting all their money into a van with their equipment, some gas and food then driving from Pennsylvania to California where they ended up settling down in a broken down warehouse behind a dry cleaner in downtown Los Angeles. It was there that they truly forged their identity, mixing part street level glam and a passion for good songwriting with a die hard work ethic Poison would flyer the entire city of Hollywood in Los Angeles. Eventually the band would be voted best live band several years in a row by throwing mega concerts and parties, an attitude that continues right through today. By betting on themselves Poison ended up forming their own record label Cyanide Music along with an independent distributor in Enigma records Poison broke the gates wide-open with their first album release Look What The Cat Dragged In. Selling over 3 million copies of an independent album which included the big hits “Talk Dirty To Me”, “I Won’t Forget You”, “Cry Tough”, “I Want Action” and the underground smash “Look What The Cat Dragged In” they were soon picked up by Capitol Records and beat the sophomore jinx by releasing the #1 smash “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn”. Written singer/songwriter and front man Bret Michaels the song would remain atop the pop, rock and country charts for 3 months consecutively. The song became an major crossover hit, blasting its way instantaneously and creating a the sound for a new era. Also from the album “Open Up and Say…Ahh!” which sold 8 million copies out of the gate and spawned other hit singles, “Fallen Angel”, “Nothin’ But A Good Time” and “Your Mama Don’t Dance”. Followed up by the multi-platinum album “Flesh & Blood” Poison again lit up the charts with several more smash hit singles including “Unskinny Bop, “Something To Believe In” and more!
