Poisonís frontman Bret Michaels and bass player Bobby Dall clashed at the end of an Atlanta concert on Friday (August 25th) which resulted in the two getting into a fight before the bandís encore to close the show.
The two were seen arguing before the fight Ė which included Michaels throwing his microphone at Dall, and Dall slamming his bass into Michaels and injuring his knee. The two were then separated by drummer Rikki Rockett and several of the bandís roadies.
Atlantaís blow up was not the first time the four members of Poison have broken out into a fight, but this is the first onstage incident since the fistfight between Michaels and Poison guitarist C.C. Deville at the MTV Video Awards in 1991. That fight took place after the performance had ended.
The band is currently on the road in support of their current release ĎThe Best Of Poison: 20 Years Of Rock.í The concerts have attracted huge crowds all across the country, and there have been no reports of the tour ended due to the conflict between the two members. The tour is scheduled to last until September 2nd, and the bandís concert in Arkansas on Sunday (Aug. 27th) was incident free.
Michaels has also apologized to fans for the fight, and posted a message on the groupís fan website stating "That s**t has been building up for 20 years. We are like brothers, and sometimes brothers want to knock the f**k out of each other."
