Poison were set to hit the road with Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe and Joan Jett And The Blackhearts this summer. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the tour has been rescheduled for 2021.

Earlier this year, Michaels returned to television for NBC‘s Masked Singer. The Poison singer made it relatively far into the competition as “The Banana” before being unmasked. Sharon Osbourne was the one judge to recognize his voice instantly.
