Prepare for a rockin’ summer as Bret Michaels gears up to hit the road once again with Parti-Gras 2.0, featuring an all-star lineup that promises to deliver hit after hit to eager fans across the nation.
Kicking off on July 12 in Noblesville, Indiana, this five-act extravaganza will see Michaels joined by legendary musicians including Lou Gramm, Don Felder, Dee Snider, and country sensation Chris Janson. With six dates spanning July and August, Parti-Gras 2.0 is set to bring the ultimate party experience to concert-goers far and wide.
Reflecting on the success of last year’s tour
Michaels expressed his excitement for the upcoming shows, highlighting the camaraderie and energy shared among the performers. “What I think makes it come together, besides the friendship and the chemistry of the [performers], is just the music, the timeless classic hits and a lot of energy,” Michaels explains. “It’s hit songs. People feel like they’re having a great time.”
Each act brings its own unique flair to the stage, with Felder opening the evening with a barrage of Eagles hits, followed by Snider’s electrifying performance and Gramm’s iconic renditions of Foreigner classics. Janson, whom Michaels considers a kindred spirit, will also grace the stage, adding a country twist to the festivities.
Michaels is no stranger to collaborations, having formed strong bonds with his fellow musicians over the years. From sharing the stage with Snider to bonding with Janson over their mutual love for music, Michaels values the friendships forged through music. “I’ve made friends, I’m gonna say this, 99.9 percent of the time,” Michaels affirms.

Parti-Gras 2.0 promises to uphold the tradition of its predecessor, with party beads, bandanas, and on-stage contests adding to the lively atmosphere.
Michaels even reveals a secret ingredient to enhance the concert experience, ensuring that fans are transported to a tropical paradise with every whiff. “I got down to make it smell good,” Michaels shares. “Dumping a little coconut rum into the hazers, it just smells good. It smells like you’re hanging out in Florida or one of the Caribbean islands.”
With a lineup packed full of chart-topping hits, Michaels aims to keep the momentum going, delivering non-stop entertainment for fans to enjoy. “When people come to Parti-Gras we keep telling them ‘all hits, no filler,'” Michaels declares. “We’re just trying to fire out hit after hit so the fans can have a great night.”
Looking ahead to the future, Michaels has big plans in store, including additional Parti-Gras shows and a reunion tour with Poison in 2025. With anticipation building and tickets set to go on sale soon, fans can gear up for a summer of unforgettable performances and rock ‘n’ roll revelry.
