Poison frontman Bret Michaels was forced to postpone a US gig last night due to a ‘medical emergency’.

A post on Bret’s social channels last night confirmed that the singer is suffering from ‘extremely painful’ kidney stones and as he’s diabetic his situation needs to be monitored more carefully.

As a result, his show at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville, Tennessee will now take place at a later date.

The full post from Bret’s representatives reads: "With much regret, we hate to inform you that tonight's Bret Michaels sold out performance will be postponed due to a medical emergency. Bret has an incredibly large kidney stone and several small stones that are now in a position that have made Bret immobile.

“While kidney stones are extremely painful on their own, being a diabetic complicates the situation and Bret needs to be monitored very carefully. As all Bret's fans have seen in the past, it takes a dire emergency to keep him from performing. Bret loves his fans and was extremely excited to perform at this new venue for the first time.

“The date will be rescheduled within the next 24 hours, all tickets will be honoured and all info will be posted on the venue's site and all Bret Michaels' sites and social media platforms."

Poison played a series of US shows in May and June of this year on their Nothin' but a Good Time Tour. Their last UK tour took place more than 25 years ago.
