Rock icon and POISON frontman, Bret Micheals is dedicating an evening of music and compassion to give back to others.

December first, the former Celebrrity Apprentice will be performing in Phoenix, Arizona at Celebrity Theatre billed as “FIRST ANNUAL BRET MICHAEL’S LIFE ROCKS FOUNDATION SUPER CONCERT and CHARITY AUCTION”

The event is slated to help an array of causes. Do not miss this historic event on this special, first time ever night to benefit those in need by way of Bret’s “Life Rocks Foundation” which supports causes such as diabetes, childhood cancer, wounded warriors, veteran’s organizations and pet charities.

Recently, Rock star Bret Michaels officially unveiled the Bret Michaels’ Hospitality and Music Room for patients’ families inside St. Joseph’s Barrow Neurological Institute during a ceremony earlier this past October.

“I was in ICU for 12 days,” the former Poison front man said. “Once you get about the sixth, seventh day in and you’re still in ICU, you know, I have two daughters, Kristy and the kids, they didn’t know where to go, and they’re trying to find a place. So hopefully, this lets people find a place to sit and take their brain off of it for a while.”

Michaels said he’s about 95 percent back to normal after suffering the stroke back in 2010. It was a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke that causes bleeding in the fluid-filled spaces around the base of the brain.

The compassionate rocker and care for others has continued to grow over these past few years, as he strives to find new ways to reach out and help others.

Saturday’s event is just another way he is using his star power to help others. The first annual event is being presented by PetSmart, Serenity Hospice and Palliative Care, and 93.3 KDKB Rocks Arizona.
