Bret Michaels brought his Party Gras tour to the beautiful Mohegan Sun Casino Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday February 9th, 2024. The fans were eager to see this show because Michaels had to postpone the original date due to an illness last year. Fans from all over the Northeast and some as far as California packed the Mohegan Sun Earth & Sky Hotels to have a weekend of music, world class gaming and extreme fun that Mohegan Sun is known for worldwide!

As fans made their way to the ten thousand seat arena you could feel the excitement to its core, they were ready for nothing but a good time!  Fans were ushered to their seats by the friendliest staff. Coming to Mohegan Sun Arena for a show isn’t just going to a show. You are coming to an EVENT, an event that holds nothing but the highest of standards and pure professionalism. History is made here at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Bret Michaels picked the rocking sounds from the 1990s band FIREHOUSE to get the crowd fired up!  Firehouse played hits like “All She Wrote”, “Love of a Lifetime”, and “Don’t Treat me Bad”.

Bret Michaels hit the stage on fire and showed no signs of cooling down! The energy that he brought with him onto that stage flowed through the 10,000 seat Mohegan Sun Arena like a wildfire, every fan was on their feet with cell phones in hand to capture the moment! Micheals wasted no time as he started the show with “Talk Dirty to Me” as he went through the hits of POISON with “Look What The Cat Dragged In”, “Nothing But a Good Time”, and “Every Rose Has it’s Thorn”.

Video from Joel Shover:

Michael is a star on and off the stage does so much for the military community and some of that was showcased during “Something to Believe In”. Michaels, a son of a veteran will “never forget” those that serve and have served!
