POISON Confirms 2025 Tour: ‘As Usual, There Will Be No Backing Tracks’

Poison live 2022

POISON drummer Rikki Rockett has confirmed that the band will hit the road again next year.

On Monday (June 24), Rockett posted on his social media: “POISON will be touring in 2025. As usual, there will be no backing tracks. Live, raw and uncut. Warts and all.”

At a question-and-answer session held aboard the Rock Legends Cruise XI on February 25th, Bret Michaels discussed POISON‘s intention to reunite for additional performances after their involvement in “The Stadium Tour” in 2022, which featured MÖTLEY CRÜEDEF LEPPARD, and Joan Jett.

Michaels said: “When we go back, I think in 2025, it’s always been, to me, all-original POISON. We’ll have C.C [DeVille, guitar] and Bobby [Dall, bass] and Rikki [Rockett, drums] and myself and go do another big stadium tour and arena tour in 2025.”

When asked about his drive to tour with POISON again after primarily focusing on his solo band’s tours, Bret stated: “We’ve known each other since we’ve been in junior high school… I wouldn’t be here without Bobby or Rikki or C.C. And then, as you go along, we’ve been together a long time — still great friends. If anyone saw ‘The Stadium Tour’, that was a party. And when you’re out there with that DEF LEPPARD and MÖTLEY and Joan, you’re talking A-plus awesomeness. And we just came out and brought it.

He continued: “For me, what it is, we do about a couple of years solo, and then we’ll go out and do 35 or 40 dates with POISON. And we set it up, we schedule it.”

In 2018, POISON concluded the “Nothin’ But A Good Time” tour, which featured performances alongside CHEAP TRICK and POP EVIL.
