Rock of Love Bus is headed this way

PENDLETON -- Poison's former front man is looking for nothin' but a good time when he brings his Rock of Love Bus to the Wildhorse Resort & Casino on May 7.

Younger fans may know Bret Michaels from his reality dating series Rock of Love, but hardcore '80s rock fans will know him from his big hair and hit singles Talk Dirty To Me and Every Rose Has Its Thorn.

The show is sold out but fans can still snag tickets during Ladies Night on May 6 at Wildhorse. The drawing is at 10 p.m.

Michael's latest album Rock My World was released in 2008. Bret performs two songs from his current CD, a couple of cover songs, and all the rest are Poison hits.

Michaels has been in the music industry for more than 25 years. In addition to starring in his own reality dating series, Michaels was a judge on the TV talent show Nashville Star.

"He's won tons of awards and I think not only his reality show but also his past with Poison makes him one of the biggest rock stars of this era and I don't think people would come to this show and be disappointed if they like rock music," said Tiah DeGrofft, a Wildhorse spokeswoman.

The 7 p.m. show is for those 21 and up in the Rivers Event Center. Doors open at 6 p.m.
