Poison, fronted by reality TV star Michaels (lead vocals/guitar), Bobby Dall (bass), Rikki Rockett (drums), and CC Deville (guitars), is known for their high energy live show. They have sold a reported 40+ million albums and DVDs worldwide. They’ve released seven studio albums, four live albums, and five compilation albums. They’ve charted 12 singles on the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including six Top 10 singles “Nothin’ But A Good Time,” “Talk Dirty To Me,” “Unskinny Bop,” and “Something To Believe In,” as well as the #1 smash hit, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”

Their breakthrough debut album, the multi-Platinum Look What the Cat Dragged In, was released in 1986 and they hit their peak with the second album, Open Up and Say… Ahh!, which became the band’s most successful album, being certified five times Platinum in the U.S. The popularity continued into the new decade with their third consecutive multi-Platinum selling album, Flesh & Blood.

Since the ’70s, Cheap Trick–Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Nielsen (lead guitar) and Tom Petersson (bass guitar)–have offered their unique union of massive melodies and razorblade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous pop wit and rock ‘n’ roll. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me” and “Surrender,” the band, now with drummer Daxx Nielsen, continue to tour relentlessly and in 2016 they earned induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
