Poison to rock through new album with television and online performances

Poison has confirmed national television and global online performances and interviews timed for the June 5th release of their new EMI America Records/Capitol album ‘Poison’d!.’
On the album’s release date, Poison will host a live webcast performance and Q&A session on the band’s official site, www.poisonweb.com.  The exclusive one-hour webcast will go out live from Capitol Studios’ legendary Studio A at 12pm PST / 3pm EST.  Fans from around the world can register for the free webcast and submit questions for the band’s consideration at www.poisonweb.com or www.myspace.com/poison. Wicked Pictures’ actress Kirsten Price will emcee the webcast event.
On June 7th, Poison will perform “What I Like About You” from the album on CBS’ “Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.” Bret Michaels will also be interviewed by Ferguson about Poison’s new album and tour and his new VH1 reality series, “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels,” premiering July 15th.

‘Poison’d!’ packs 13 “explosive” cover songs, including new recordings of David Bowie’s “Suffragette City,” The Cars’ “You’re Just What I Needed,” The Romantics’ “What I Like About You,” Sweet’s “Little Willy,” The Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” and The Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers.” Some of Poison’s best previously recorded covers are also featured on the album – including KISS’ “Rock and Roll All Nite,” Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band” and Loggins & Messina’s “Your Mama Don’t Dance.”
Featuring Poison’s original members, Bret Michaels (vocals), C.C. DeVille (guitar), Rikki Rockett (drums) and Bobby Dall (bass), and produced by Don Was, the album is the band’s first new studio recordings since 2002’s ‘Hollyweird.’ Since Poison’s 1986 debut, ‘Look What The Cat Dragged In,’ the band has sold more than 25 million records and DVDs worldwide.

Poison will hit more than 50 U.S. cities this summer on their “Poison’d! 2007” tour. The national tour, with RATT and special guest White Lion joining Poison for most of the dates, rolls out on June 13 in Greenville, SC, with stops in and around New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Detroit, Washington, DC and other major tour markets across the country.
Last April, Poison rocketed into the Billboard Top 20 with the #17 debut of the band’s 20th anniversary hits collection, ‘The Best Of Poison: 20 Years Of Rock’ (Capitol/EMI). The 18-track hits collection was soon certified gold, and Poison tore through the summer of 2006 on their highly successful “20 Years Of Rock” North American concert tour.
