At a Shot of Poison performance, expect a party atmosphere, an introductory video, spot-on costumes and musical performances, great sound and lighting, accompanying video presentation, stage props, special effects, a "rose ceremony," lots of audience interaction including sing-alongs, and a theatrical, highly visual performance of Poison classics with energy to spare.
Poison owes its continuing popularity in part to lead vocalist Bret Michaels, who became a pop-culture icon for a second time in the 2000s with several of his own reality TV series on VH1, plus NBC's Celebrity Apprentice, a solo recording career, appearances on numerous talk shows, even a spot on American Idol. "Poison" has thus remained a household name for thirty years, with Bret Michaels known to most Americans between the ages of 25 and 60.
Shot of Poison's members have amazing rock & roll credits, know their stuff, and promise to bring a full-on party with every show full of the fun atmosphere of Poison's rowdy, arena-rock exploits, with the music done right, and the imagery that so many have grown up with and loved. A portion of the proceeds from all Shot of Poison merchandise sales is donated to the Bret Michaels Life Rocks Foundation to benefit childhood cancer and diabetes, homeless individuals, veterans' causes, disaster relief, animal welfare, and more.
