Bret Michaels to Rock for Jobs in Detroit



Poison singer Bret Michaels will play a show at the Motor City Casino’s Soundboard on Sunday, February 16, dubbed “Rock for Jobs."

Proceeds from the concert will help to fund Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit’s mission to put metro Detroiters back to work through job training and placement programs.

Say what you want about the man, but that’s a pretty cool gesture. Tickets range from $30 to $50.

They say, “Bret Michaels is best known as the lead vocalist for the legendary rock band Poison and VH1 reality show Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. Michael has sold 30 million records and scored an amazing 15 chart-busting Top 40 singles. He was also portrayed in the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, which features him singing two of his songs. He was also the winning contestant on NBC's reality show Celebrity Apprentice 3 and also featured in his own reality docu-series Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, which inspired his highest charting album as a solo artist, Custom Built, reaching No. 1 on Billboard's Hard Rock list. He is also known for hosting on the Travel Channel.”
