Yesterday, Bret Michaels was present at the opening of Artpark’s seventh season of Tuesday in the Park. Wearing his trademark cowboy hat and bandanna, Bret Michaels performed his hits on the stage, giving the fans little reminiscent moments when he played along with his former band, Poison.
The president of Artwork, George Osborne, expressed his happiness about having a monumental performer such as Bret Michaels perform in Artpark. He hopes to reach a wider audience now that the Rock of Love star has graced the stage. Moreover, Mark Thomas, Western District director of the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation echoes the same sentiments.
"This band is appealing to a younger crowd, which is very exciting to see. The program this year is going to appeal to a broad spectrum," Mark Thomas said.
It seems that Bret Michaels is indeed appealing to audiences of all walks of life with his humility and impressive performances. In fact, even his right hand man and security guard, “Big John” Murray, believes in Bret’s sincerity.
"I’ve worked for a lot of entertainers, and Bret is the most fan-friendly person I’ve ever worked for," Murray, who has been working for Bret for the past 13 years, told Buffalo News
. "He goes out of his way to make everyone feel special. We’ve actually had meet-and-greets that have gone longer than the show itself."
Bret Michaels, who has been singing since 1984, shot to fame with his rock band Poison, eventually selling 25 million records and landing 15 Top 40 singles. Now at 45 years of age, Bret believes he had done it all, and his humbled by his experiences. He is battling diabetes as an insulin dependent, but this doesn’t stop him from rocking on to a crowd of 6,000.
In fact, Bret Michaels will continue touring in the coming days, with destinations such as Waukesha, Wisconsin, Hartford, Connecticut, Allentown, Pennsylvania, Atlantic City, New Jersey, Lincoln, Rhode Island and Yuma, Arizona.
