One of my dear and talented friends made this quilt for me out of a few of my concert t-shirts! Bret was kind enough to sign it at the meet and greet on New Year’s Day ’16 at Jergel’s! What a way to start out the new year! Photo by Jen Pilewski; Quilt by Jill Miller

What an awesome weekend! First I saw Bret in Pottsville, PA for New Year’s Eve, then drove to Verona, NY to meet up with friends from NY and Massachusetts to see Bret at the show in the event center and the acoustic show in the Turquoise Tiger Lounge, both at Turning Stone Casino. I cannot begin to say how great the shows were, the band was, the fans were! You could tell Bret was giving 1000%! It was the best way to start 2016! Thank you and I look forward to planning my next East Coast show very soon! – Joanne

A wonderful group of ladies from Nebraska, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey met to have an epic night of Rock & Roll! Can’t wait until we can all get together and do it again!

RoadDogNation.com Fan Feature: Bret Is Couple’s Good Luck Charm

I got the pleasure of seeing the Bret Michaels Band last night at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, MD. The show was awesome! I would say the best concert I have ever been too! It was well worth the three and a half hour drive to go to it. After the show I got the pleasure of meeting Bret and sharing my favorite Bret Michaels related story with him. Five years ago I met him after a concert in Virgina Beach, VA.

At the time my husband and I were trying to have a baby but things were taking longer then we had hoped. Bret must have been our good luck charm because we conceived that month! Ten months later we were finally parents. I owe it to my husband, but I do feel that there is a convection to that show! Lol. My friends even through me a Bret Michaels baby shower. 

 
My son is now four and hopefully in the near future will be attending Bret Michaels concerts with us. I want to thank Bret and the Bret Michaels Band for continuing to put on great shows and giving fans like me experiences and memories that last a lifetime!

My aunt took me to my first rock concert. I had the privilege to go see Bret Michaels and actually meet him! It meant so much to me. She went out of her way to make the concert memorable. Bret did an amazing job and is so friendly, rock on!

 I was the winner of Bret’s Pets Rock – Petsmart Ugly Holiday Sweater contest last year. This is the picture from my meet and greet. Special thanks to Patrick for making it happen! – Carrie

 

Bret and the BMB are truly classiest guys in rock n roll, the show in Greensboro, NC a few weeks ago was awesome, from getting to sit in on soundcheck and playing Every Rose on stage with the band, to meeting Bret again, October 2nd was definitely a night to remember, it made driving 4 hours from Virginia in a hurricane so worth it!

I grew up listening to Bret Michaels thanks to my parents and it was an absolute honor to meet him. Such a great guy! Will never forget how impressed he and the rest of BMB were at how I knew the words to each song. Thanks Bret! – Mark


Michelle & Bret at Sweet Caroline’s in Winchester, VA. The best night of my life. A true artist who really cares about his fans! Thank Bret!


I’ve been a life long Bret fan! I love everything he does. He is a truly amazing individual. He works hard and parties hard and is an amazing father. I’ve gone to three of his shows in the last year, but sadly I didn’t have the opportunity to do the meet and greet. I told my husband that the next time Bret comes to Washington State, I was going and I was going to meet him. After I bought my tickets, I did a lot of thinking.. What is a memorable gift that I can give him? I know he bleeds black and gold as a life long Steelers fan, so I thought of finding Steelers fabric and a pattern and made him a very cool Steelers quilt. The concert was awesome as always, but I was on cloud nine when I was able to finally meet Bret and on top of it, give him this special gift. Until next time… Keep on Rockin! I love you Bret! – Heather

I decided my 8 year old daughter’s very first concert would be to see Bret Michaels. We headed to the Music and Merchants Festival in Ft. Thomas, KY and my daughter was happy to be going. It all changed when we got to actually meet Bret Michaels in person. His kindness, smile and beautiful heart made my daughter a huge fan even before the concert started. During the concert she was up dancing, singing and yelled at me, “Mom, when will we get to do this again? This is the best concert ever!” My heartfelt thanks goes out to Bret for being so down to earth and making a little girl’s night a dream come true. Thank you so much for everything you do.

I had such a great time seeing Bret. He is always so sweet and nice. Everyone is always great. I come out every year to see Bret and it is always nothing but a good time. See you next year! – Kelly


Bret – Thank you again for meeting with me and talking to me. You have helped me not be scared of having diabetes. I love you and everything you do. You’re an amazing guy. This photo was taken October 9, 2015 at the Hard Rock Rocksino in Cleveland. – Ashley

 

I absolutely love Bret, he is amazing! I try to meet him where ever he is close to me and have been a fan since childhood. Love you Bret! It was a life time dream to see his concert. – Angela

  

Meeting Bret for the third time and always as exciting as the first! Thanks for another amazing evening! – Lee Ann

Once again the B*M*B band killed it! Thank you for everyone being so nice – Matt

I wanted to let Bret know what a magical moment it was for me to finally meet my favorite rock star in Salem, Ohio. I was teary eyed as I walked away. I had rehashed in my mind all day meeting Bret to the point I made myself sick. When I met him, that sick feeling just disappeared. Tell Bret that I told Wayne that Bret said “Wayne did an awesome job on my tattoo.” In fact, at about 3 am. Wayne went ahead and tattooed Bret’s signature in my arm. We both listen to Bret’s music all the time. Wayne had severe pain from standing watching the concert from his health issues. It seems we both have our share. I so much admire Bret for all the charity work he does. Thank you to Bret for recognizing epilepsy as I have had this disease since I was in my early 20’s. In 2011, I had a bad seizure/stroke and almost did not recover. I have found a better neurologist since then and have been seizure free since 2011. This March, I was diagnosed with MS and Dr. Raheja thinks the epilepsy has something to do with that. Friday night was one of the best nights of our lives. Meeting Bret for me was a moment I will cherish forever. Much love to Bret, Pete, and all the guys Oh, Bret I hope you liked you beach glass necklace with the B. Bret you stole a piece of my heart that night! Thank you so much for all you do! – Love, Karen


Thanks for a great show in Portland, ME and for being so nice at the meet n greet! It’s a night we will never forget!

NJ loves Bret Michaels and the B*M*B! Another AMAZING show last night.  

Thank you! – Joanne

Thursday, April 16th at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA marks just one more phenomenal concert experience with Bret Michaels and the rest of the BMB boys.  I can truly say that they never disappoint and always give an awesome and high energy performance.  During my Meet & Greet I was able to show Bret my ink in the making.  He absolutely LOVED it and asked me to share this picture with him.  As promised, here it is and a brief story behind it…..

Growing up, I was very shy and definitely was not an outgoing individual.  I was misinterpreted as not being friendly and had a hard time making friends. Those that were close to me, knew me as a loving, compassionate, and creative (which I think led to the Interior Design degree that I have today) person.  They knew that they could always come to me because I was always there to listen, was never judgmental of their problems, thoughts and ideas and would do anything for them.

It took me several and I mean several years to come out of my shell and I have my husband to thank for his support and guidance in doing this.  He would always say that “if you do not believe in yourself and love yourself for who you are, you will never be happy.”  That is so very true…..

It has taken me almost 39 years to realize this, but I can truly say that my fun, outgoing, caring, compassionate and confident inner self has emerged. Whether it is spending hours with my husband, three children and three rescue pups, volunteering for local canine shelters, spending time with some invaluable friends, partying at each Bret Michaels concert within driving distance or spending some “me” time at the gym, I can truly say that I am loving every minute of it!

It is okay I was the person that I used to be.  I was able to grow into the person that I am today and as Bret always says…..”Every Rose Has Its Thorn”.

With Love,
Heather Stout
Mechanicsburg, PA

These are my girls that were at the Penn’s Peak concert on April 16. (My birthday) I was very upset that I couldn’t make it. (I live in Nebraska) They asked Bret if he would text me and he told them to call me. I am on the phone with Bret in this picture. I want Bret to know how special he made my birthday. It was a short conversation but it meant the world to me. I can’t wait to rock out in Rock Island, IL on June 20th.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to meet Bret on March 20, 2015 at The Shack in Fond du Lac, WI.  During the meet & greet I asked Bret if he would sign my tattoo.  He liked my tattoo so much he asked that I send him a picture of it.  He wanted to show someone and put it up on the website he said.  

My very first rock concert was in 1990 seeing Poison in Green Bay, WI.  Since that moment on, I have loved all that is Bret Michaels and in particular his song, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”.  It is my favorite song of all time.  And since that first concert in 1990, I have seen Bret perform 30+ times and have had the pleasure of meeting him in person three times now.

Thank you, Bret, for all that you do to support our troops and for being an advocate for diabetes research.  You are an inspiration, and have turned me into the rockaholic I am today.

PS.  I did go and get his signature tattooed where he signed it the very next day.
