Poison plays the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., June 21.

Poison “Nothin’ But A Good Time” outing will venture onto America’s touring superhighways come May. Sporting a ticket that includes Cheap Trick and Pop Evil, Poison’s 2018 travels will feature all original members.

Beginning May 18 at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, Calif., the Live Nation-produced tour includes stops at Kansas City’s Sprint Center; Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center, Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater and the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas, near Dallas.  Last stop is June 24 at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pa.

Poison’s 2018 lineup is Michaels, C.C. DeVille, Rikki Rockett and Bobby Dall.

“The all original Poison is headlining again this summer,” Michaels said in a statement.  It’s going to be a mega concert and party combined.  We will be playing all the hits and bringing high-energy rock and roll good times.  I promise this will be awesome. My friends Cheap Trick and Pop Evil will be joining us as well as some special gests on select dates.  Again, I know all the bands with all the hits will be giving 1000 percent!  Over the last years, Poison has got to co-headline with some great bands: Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, KISS, Lynyrd Skynyrd, to name a few, but I promise again, C.C., Bobby, Rikki and myself together will bring nothing but a good time!!!”

Poison toured with Def Leppard last year on a billing that included Tesla on most shows.  Box office results submitted to Pollstar showed the outing sold over 18,000 tickets for a $802,017 approximate total gross. Sold-out shows included Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, where fans scooped up more than 11,000 tickets, and the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where 6,732 tickets were sold.

Presales begin today at 12 p.m. local time with all three bands offering their fans VIP packages and meet & greet opportunities.  General onsales for various cities begin Feb. 9 & 10 depending on the city.  Be sure to follow Pollstar pages for  Poison, Cheap Trick, and Pop Evil for more developments.
