Bret Michaels is coming to the Tyson Event Center in Sioux City on Friday, November 8. He’s bringing a multi genre combo of different artists to each town in celebration of Veteran’s Day and to kick off the holiday season.

Tickets starting at $39 and are available online at or by visiting the Primebank Box Office at the Tyson Events Center.

“This show will be a night of nothing but hits, and I am honored to be headlining these amazing shows in these incredible cities, with such awesome performers. I promise, as always, I will give 1000% on stage playing all the hits through the span of my career from Poison to “Rock of Love,” “Life As I Know It” and “The Apprentice,” and I will bring one of the largest thrusts (stage extension) anyone’s ever seen. That gives me the opportunity to be closer to, more engaged and basically one with the fans. This is much more than a concert…It’s a musical event honoring hometown heroes.” ~ Bret Michaels

Beyond the music, each concert--headlined by Michaels, the son of a veteran--will raise awareness and funds for local charities while honoring local “heroes” as the nation celebrates Veteran’s Day.  Local charities include the JDRF--Greater Iowa Chapter, Siouxland Humane Society, Sioux City Police Department K9 Unit, Support Siouxland Vets.

We can expect to hear the hits that made the 80s special for rock fans. Michaels said of the band's #1 hit Every Rose Has It's Thorn that he’d met with the ex-girlfriend who’d inspired that acoustic ballad years later, when they both had kids, and that they’d been able to laugh about it, even though “it wasn’t very laughable at the moment.” He added that he still enjoyed playing it, and the band’s fans still enjoying hearing it. “And for each person it’s probably meant something different. But for me, to be able to go out there and sing it and still do it this many years later is an amazing feeling. I still get chill-bumps on my arms doing that and knowing it’s withstood the test of time.”
