On Thursday, June 30th, it was first reported that #Poison (@Poison) singer #Bret Michaels (@bretmichaels) was to be hospitalized for an undisclosed condition, leaving the veteran 80s rock icons no choice but to cancel its planned set for the ongoing Stadium Tour.

As initially reported by The Sun, it had been just before they hit the stage that Michaels’s emergency had been reported, whose bandmates, “Took the stage to make the announcement regarding Bret’s condition.”

While reports were initially unclear, it was assumed that Michaels’s hospitalization was either COVID related, or had to due with the singer’s diabetes, a malady that Michaels has long managed. Later, it was reported, and then confirmed by Michaels himself, that the absence was due to, “A bad reaction to some medication.”

On July 1st, Michaels shared an update, saying:

“There are not enough words of thanks and gratitude for the well wishes from family, friends, and fans. Can’t thank enough Nashville’s incredible and determined medical staff who helped me as you can see with several IV sites to run tests, and administer fluids.”

As an assurance to Michaels’s fans, he added, “I’m determined to try to rock Jacksonville, and return for a Nashville show someday soon.”
