Bret Michaels reveals skin cancer diagnosis

Poison will kick off The Stadium Tour this summer

Bret Michaels is kicking off the new year with some medical updates. The busy Poison frontman is about to go under the knife to have a patch of skin cancer removed as he deals with a tear in his right shoulder.

“After a very recent kickoff to the new year, physical & MRI it has been brought to my attention that I have torn my right shoulder rotator cuff which would answer the question why it looks like a lump or bone was sticking out of my right shoulder,” the singer shares. “A little more complex I will also have to undergo a procedure to remove skin cancer that was detected after a recent biopsy. I’m in the hands of incredible specialists who are both positive for great outcomes. It may slow me down a bit at the beginning of the year, but if God willing I promise this year will be awesome. Just a few less solo shows & special events until I get this all squared up. As always continuing great diabetic maintenance to keep on rocking in 2020!”

Michaels has a slew of solo shows booked before embarking on The Stadium Tour with Def Leppard, a reunited Mötley Crüe and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts this July. Produced by Live Nation, the summer tour is set to steamroll through America, visiting the country’s most iconic stadiums with more dates being added due to demand.
