You can see Bret Michaels when Poison comes to The Pudential Center in Newark in July, but Bret Michaels will also be making a special solo stop in Asbury Park this September!

Bret Michaels' has every reason to call his foundation "Life Rocks" after his close call(s) with death. The foundation sends kids with juvenile diabetes (which Bret has dealth with himself since childhood) to summer sleep-away camps.

Bret is full of energy these days and is happy to give back by raising money for diabetes research and helping to send diabetic children to camps so that they know they are not alone in their struggle to take care of themselves.

This summer Bret will take on a rigorous touring schedule when Poison hits the road. But he will also be playing his own solo concerts to raise money for his foundation, and singing songs off his newest solo album "Get Your Rock On" which is scheduled for release this summer.

Bret says he is in good physical condition to play many consecutive nights of shows between Poison and his solo concerts.

Bret's latest causes include his Champions of Health fitness challenge for young adults. Go to www.goodchime.com/launch/bret-michaels for more information that should be out within a month.

Bret is also introducing a line of pet products, called "Pet Rocks" this summer!
