    Poison, Cinderella, Winger and Faster Pussycat -- together -- on one tour?! I see they're going to be in Wisconsin on two seperate occasions. Wooooo!
    Now, where did I put that Poison shirt and lime green 'do rag?

    Don't need nothin,' but a good time / How can I resist / Ain't lookin' for nothin,' but a good time / And it don't get better than this!

    Sounds like it could be a damn good show. My band opened for Faster Pussycat at the Shack in Aneheim, and they STILL kill the audience every damn time.

    The tour lineup originally included Danger Kitty. I was going to buy tickets, but then DK got thrown in jail for transporting a minor (groupie) across state lines. :mad:


    J/K. And for the record, I did the HairMetal thing for a few years back in the 80's. :p

    For the record, I was never really into Cinderella or Faster Pussycat, I was too busy listening to Michael Jackson and Madonna. I barely got into Poison (although, I love to hear "Nothin' But A Good Time" when it comes on my area's local Eighties Flashback Weekend radio show), but I don't think I need to mention that my favorite bassist was and is Kip Winger!

    Also, at a hair-metal reunion tour of this magnitude, I am sure there will be some flashin' goin' on, if you get what I'm honking at! ;) Well worth any admission price.

    If bassists weren't meant to play root notes, God wouldn't have invented punk music!

    ;) :D

    Don't flame me, it was a joke!

    Hey Mike, I just checked out Poison's website to get their tour dates. If you're interested in Cinderella specifically, check out their website at www.cinderella.net. Speaking of .net, don't forget to stock up on Aquanet!

    EDIT: There are no dates listed on Cinderella's site yet. Poison's site is www.poisonweb.com, FP's site is www.fasterpussycatmusic.com and Winger's website looks like it's www.kipwinger.com.
     
  9. I guess the only question is if all members of the bands will make it through the tour without breaking a hip.

    Speaking of Kip Winger <shudder>, check out what a great sense of humor this guy has on Metal Sludge's 20 questions: http://www.metal-sludge.com/20QuestionsWinger.htm (note: extreme sarcasm was used in the word "great").

    I am SO there! I may drive to Atlanta to see that one. And will see Poison alone in Valdosta.

    At some point I would love to put together an 80's hair band cover band, ALA Danger Kitty. I think that would be too much fun.
