Bret Michaels


Bret Michaels is a multi-platinum global superstar who has turned his passion for music into a multi-faceted brand. With a legendary career that encompasses record-breaking touring sales, reality TV stardom, chart-topping songs that have sold over 50 million records, product endorsements, and a dedication to philanthropy, Bret is supported and followed by three generations of loyal fans. He first rose to fame as the front man of Poison, helping to define the rock-n-roll scene on the Sunset Strip. Equally successful as a solo artist, Bret Michaels’ career has charted its own course with multiple solo albums. His talent, business acumen and natural candor have solidified him as “a cultural touchdown” in the words of former Viacom CEO Judy McGrath, making him one of the most sought-after performers, interviews, and speakers across multiple platforms and keeping him on the road for the last 10 years, for nearly 300 live performances, speaking engagements, charitable concerts and private engagements yearly. His latest single and video, “Unbroken,”co-written and recorded with youngest daughter Jorja Bleu, was released on March 15, 2019, his birthday. He recently embarked on his worldwide 2019 Unbroken Tour, which will continue throughout the year.

When this multi-talented performer is not touring he can be found both in front of and behind the camera as a director, producer, and a reality TV superstar via his record-breaking, smash hit reality shows Rock Of Love With Bret Michaels, Life As I Know It, and most recently, Rock My RV With Bret Michaels. He also starred in and won the NBC hit, Celebrity Apprentice, raising well over $300,000 for Diabetes research and making him the only celebrity to have a product created be available to the general public and actually become an endorsement deal. Bret has two new TV series in the works throughout 2019.

Bret’s constant creativity and drive has helped the global entrepreneur build his Michaels Entertainment Group in to a one-man, 100-million-dollar empire. He created the multi-million dollar selling Pets Rock Collection with petSmart, launched his own line of custom guitars and created “Bret’s Blend, Diet Trop-A-Rocka which is a number one selling beverage for Dr. Pepper/Snapple Group.

Michaels personally and through his Life Rocks Foundation helped raise tens of millions of dollars for charity and makes donations to not only diabetes awareness and research but to such causes as childhood cancer, wounded warriors, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, petSmart Charities and more. Having been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of six, Bret is passionately devoted to raise awareness of the disease in hopes of finding a cure. He has partnered with both the American Diabetes Association and the JDRF acting as a spokesperson and sponsor, earning him numerous awards from a variety of organizations including the ADA’s first ever Chairman’s Citation award.
