Rock singer, Poison frontman, and reality TV star Bret Michaels brings The Rock of Love Tour Bus tour to Myrtle Beach House Of Blues (4640 Highway 17, 843-913-3740) on Wed. June 10.
Known best among younger fans for his featured role in the VH-1 reality series Rock of Love, in which some two dozen women compete for a date with the singer, Michaels will incorporate elements of the show into this month’s tour. “I’ve got to be honest, it was really strange to have cameras around me,’ the singer told City Paper contributor Alan Sculley. “It felt very uncomfortable doing a lot of the stuff. What made me do it beyond season one — besides the fact that I get to meet some beautiful girls — was that also they didn’t change it. They didn’t say, ‘Okay now Bret, we’re going to do this, you’re going to wear this, you’re going to try this.’ They didn’t tell me who I was. They let me just be who I am.”
(I didn’t hear about Michaels’ unfortunate, Spinal Tap-esque brush with a stage prop at this week’s televised Tony Awards show until Monday morning … he got plopped pretty well while Stockard Channing kicked into her number).
