AceShowbiz - Poison has canceled their show in Nashville after one of its own, Bret Michaels, had a medical emergency. The 59-year-old singer fell ill on Thursday, June 30, just moments before he was set to take the stage and perform with his band.
According to reports, Bret's bandmates came out on stage to announce to the audience who have gathered at Nissan Stadium that the frontman had to go to the hospital "because of an allergic reaction to medication." As a result, they wouldn't be able to perform their set that night.
TMZ further claims that the former "The Celebrity Apprentice" contestant may have had a bad reaction to medication that is related to COVID. Sources tell the site that the medication triggered a reaction as a result of his diabetes.
An hour prior to the official announcement, Metal Sludge reported that Brett had tested positive for COVID-19. Earlier that day, Poison had also announced that they were canceling the VIP meet-and-greet with members of the band in Nashville "due to COVID positive cases within the Poison touring party." Initially, it was not revealed who tested positive for COVID within the band, but not long after, they decided to scrap their appearance at the concert altogether.
Following the announcement, fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment at Poison's canceled performance. "Came all the way from KC to watch poison. Bret Michaels was admitted to hospital. No poison in Nashville," one of them tweeted.
Bret is currently being treated in a Nashville hospital. His current condition is not immediately known and it's unclear how long he will be sidelined or how his leave of absence will affect Poison's schedule.
