Poison rocker Bret Michaels apologized to his fans after canceling a Nashville performance due to an “unforeseen medical complication.”
Hours after news broke of his hospitalization Friday, the singer, 59, took to Instagram to thank his followers for their “well wishes.”
Michaels wrote, “I was truly fired up to get on stage in the music city and perform, but due to an unknown complication & following hospitalization, it was not possible.
“I send my deepest apologies for being unable to rock the stage tonight!!!” he continued. “I’m working on being back 100% very soon & hope you rocked hard with my friends Motley [Crüe]/[Def] Leppard/Joan [Jett & The Blackhearts] and Classless Act!!!”

“Came all the way from KC to watch poison,” one fan tweeted. “Bret Michaels was admitted to hospital. No poison in Nashville.”

One attendee’s parent took to Twitter, writing, “My son is in Nashville to finally see the big 80s rock line-up with Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett & Def Leppard. He’s waited so long. They’ve had a storm dump on them, lightning delay & Poison just canceled. They’re saying Bret Michaels is hospitalized.”
While TMZ reported that the musician had a “bad reaction to medication,” his reps have yet to respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Michaels, who has type 1 diabetes, has experienced health scares in the past, from his 2010 emergency appendectomy to his 2014 hospitalization for kidney surgery.Filed under bret michaels , celebrity social media , hospital , 7/1/22

Biden and Kamala to announce new plans to protect reproductive rights - 100 days after Roe was overturned: President will say abortion rights have been curtailed for millions and will give $6M to healthcare services
President Joe Biden will mark 100 days since the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade by criticizing states that have curtailed abortion rights and announcing $6 million in healthcare service funding.
He will announce the new guidelines and the federal grants at a meeting of the reproductive rights task force, also to be attended by Vice President Kamala Harris, at the White House on Tuesday.
In his remarks, he will describe how abortion rights have been curtailed since the Supreme Court ruling.
And he will announce new guidelines for universities from the Department of Education to protect students from discrimination on the basis of pregnancy and $6 million in new grants from the Department of Health & Human Services to protect access to reproductive healthcare services.
Harris will be at his side. She has taken the lead for the Biden administration in the fight to preserve reproductive rights. In September, she said the court ruling 'has created a health care crisis in America.'
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will attend a meeting of the reproductive rights task force at the White House on Tuesday where the president will criticize states that have curtailed abortion rights and announce $6 million in healthcare service funding
October 2 marked 100 days since the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization ruling that returned the issue of abortion rights to the states.
Since then 13 states have made abortion illegal with eight states passing laws to protect abortion rights, according to the Center for Reproductive Rights.
And close to 30 million women of reproductive age now live in a state with a ban -including nearly 22 million women who cannot access abortion care after six weeks, before most women know they are pregnant, the White House noted.
Democrats are trying to mobilize their voters with the abortion issue in the runup to November's election that will decide control of Congress.
Administration officials have repeatedly gone after Republicans on the issue.
Biden, specificially, has invoked the abortion issue on the campaign trail, reminding women of their power at the ballot box and calling on them to vote.
In a report from Jennifer Klein, the director of Biden's Gender Policy Council, released by the White House, the administration notably says that Republicans have blocked efforts to write reproductive protections into federal law and that 'Republican elected officials at the state and national level have taken extreme steps to block women's access to health care.'
'In 100 days, millions of women cannot access critical health care and doctors and nurses are facing criminal penalties for providing health care,' Klein notes.
Klein also specificially calls out Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina for introducing 'a national abortion ban that threatens to put doctors in jail for performing an abortion to save the health of their patients, for offering a full range of miscarriage care, or for providing an abortion to a woman carrying a fetus with little to no chance of survival.'
Biden has wielded his executive pen in the wake of the court ruling but his administration has repeatedly emphasized that the best way to protect abortion rights is for Congress to codify it into law.

However, in the 50-50 evenly divided Senate there is not enough support to get such a law over the 60 vote threshold necessary to advance legislation.
Meanwhile, no state has taken Biden up on his offer to use Medicaid to help cover costs for people who cross state borders for abortions.
Two months ago, Biden signed an executive order encouraging states to use Medicaid to expand abortion access.
But no state has applied to do so, Politico revealed.
The news outlet contacted 24 states where abortion rights are not in jeopardy and found that officials in 10 states said they are reviewing the federal proposal; Massachusetts and Minnesota are waiting on additional federal guidance; North Carolina is not pursuing the policy; and 11 states did not respond to requests for comment.Read more:
