Bret Michael's Comeback After Brain Haemorrhage

July 15, 2010 8:22 PM | Bret Michaels | Rock | Comments (0)

Just three months ago, Former Poison front man Bret Michaels, battled a brain haemorrhage, appendicitis and other maladies, certainly looked as if nothing happened while performing Wednesday at Allentown’s Crocodile Rock Café. After returning from the battle of his health problems, he played his first solo outing with the opening slot on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s tour, Michaels flat-out rocked the show.

He had only barely noticeable compensating and caution in his movements, and no sign of the limp he had on his return to the stage on the “American Idol” finale show. In fact, he even moved around looking healthy, jump while singing though it may not be as high as before.

It is his first in five years packing his 11 songs with the obvious Poison hits, popular covers and a couple of songs off his new album, “Custom Built.” It will all be documented for his new reality TV series, “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It,” scheduled for fall.

During the show Michaels apologized. “When we come back, I’m going to rock it all night.” He noted he’s having surgery in January to repair a small hole in his heart. In May he postponed the show due to him being ill. He thanked the fans for standing by him and for being patient as well.

“This is what I need right now; this is my medicine,” he told the rowdy, near-sellout crowd of about 1,000 packed tightly in the stiflingly hot club. “I like it all hot and sticky when you’re playing rock and roll. It’s good to be back in Pennsylvania hanging out with my friends.”

The songs he played include “Talk Dirty to Me,” “Look What the Cat Dragged In,” “Unskinny Bop” and “Fallen Angel” while wearing his trademark cowboy hat over a bandana and a sleeveless black T-shirt.

He hawked his new disc, saying, “I love doing new stuff” before playing “Go That Far,” the theme song to his former reality show, “Rock of Love.” That also led to him hawking his new show and his upcoming autobiography. He also played the new disc’s cover of Sublime’s “What I Got.”

He used “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” to pitch himself as  a replacement for “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell, noting he played the song on this year’s finale. “I’d bring the real deal ‘because I lived it!” he said.

He played 12-string acoustic guitar, and dedicated “Something to Believe In” to U.S. servicemen, saying he was filming it to send to troops abroad and asking the crowd to wave and sing along. “From the front to the sweaty back, that was awesome,” he told them.
 “Nothing But a Good Time,” was the closing song, the ultimate encore song, inserting an elongated rap in the middle. Everybody indeed had a good time in the show.
