Bret Michaels 2023 Parti Gras Tour Setlist
The big question you probably have is “Will Bret Michaels do the big Poison songs?” The short answer is yes. In fact, that’s all he does on this tour. They’ve branded this a “no filler” show. You’re going to hear hits all night at the Parti Gras Tour with Steve Augeri from Journey, Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray, and Night Ranger.
You can’t get more for your money this summer in Tampa than the Parti Gras Tour coming to the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre August 4. With tickets starting at about $20 [RELATED: 8 Tampa Concerts with $20 Tickets], this concert stands out against shows like Aerosmith at Amalie Arena, where tickets START at about $300 for nosebleed seats.
Another thing that makes this tour stand out is the bands rotate throughout the show. It’s not separate sets where once one band is done, they’re gone for the night. The artists do a few songs and then switch up. I love shows like this – it keeps things moving and you don’t get that annoying downtime for set changes.
Here are the songs the bands have been doing so far on this tour to give you an idea if this is a show you might want to grab a ticket for. (There are PLENTY of seats left.)
Up first, Bret Michaels takes the stage and does Talk Dirty To Me, Ride The Wind, and Look What The Cat Dragged In. These were the songs he started the Poison set off with at The Stadium Tour in Orlando last year. Quite honestly, Poison stole the show that night even though they went on first. Def Leppard was just going through the motions. And Vince Neil’s winded vocals for Motley Crue’s set are always a downer.
Next, Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray comes on to do Every Morning. Bret hangs out on stage to help out with background vocals and then does the Poison version of Your Mama Don’t Dance before Steve Augeri does Separate Ways.
Bret Michaels returns for a couple of Poison’s 90s hits Something To Believe In and Unskinny Bop before Augeri belts out of a couple of Journey’s 80s classics Don’t Stop Believin’ and Any Way You Want It.
After Mark McGrath performs Fly, it’s Bret’s turn again. Poison songs for this round include Every Rose Has Its Thorn and Nothin’ But A Good Time before everyone joins together on stage for covers of Sweet Home Alabama and Old Time Rock and Roll.
