Bret Michaels “The Party Starts Now” Fan Photos

What an amazing performance in Tunica, MS! Your energy and passion for what you do is contagious, and overcoming all adversities in your life have encouraged me to overcome my own. So thankful to have had the opportunity once again to speak with you and share my story.  Look forward to seeing you again soon! – Shelley

I saw Bret in concert in Sterling Heights, MI on July 29th. I had the pleasure of meeting him after the concert and he was the nicest guy ever! My husband and I had the best time talking with him. Thanks for all you do Bret! We’ll see you next time! 

– Laura Gillespie 

I’ve had the privilege of meeting Bret on 4 occasions and he has been absolutely amazing every single time. I admire his kindness, generosity, talent and huge heart and wanted to express the sentiments since I first met him.


Thank you for an absolutely amazing performance in Biloxi, July 7, 2017! We also appreciated the tribute to those who have served, very special. Loved meeting you again and and can’t wait to see you next year!

Love from Georgia,

I attended Bret’s sold out show in Eugene, Oregon. My family and I met Bret after the show. As a Gulf War Navy veteran talking to Bret about the song “Something To Believe In” it was an experience I will never forget. He listened and talked with my whole family and making us feel special. Thank you Bret for all you do for your fans and the military. – George

I met Bret Michaels and his band in Eugene, Oregon. Some of the nicest people I have met in awhile! – Officer Jeff

I was at the event in Twin River Lincoln, R.I. It was an early birthday present from my boyfriend and to my surprise he also got me a meet and greet. Best b-day present ever! I love Bret for all he does an all he gives for so many people. Besides all that he is a awesome person he truly cares and listens to people. – Michelle

From the 1st night I met Bret and the B*M*B, we became family. I just had seen the guys in Orlando for the 4th time. Who would know a week later our world would change when my 25 year old daughter would be diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After 2 stays in the hospital & her first 2 aggressive rounds of chemo we had tickets for a Bret Michaels concert.

We were able to make 2 hour drive & first thing Bret said was “Hello stranger” not knowing why Meagan was in a wheelchair. When we told him he immediately gave my daughter a “big hug”. She also received a drum stick from Mike and Rob wore a special shirt for her. For that time she was out of pain and just beaming. This is a wish that was granted she could only dream about. – Hillary

Just wanted to share how extremely amazing it feels to have been able to share with my daughter meeting Bret! Bret and all the crew are amazing people and so very nice. We have done other meet and greets where you get maybe 30 seconds with the band and no pics or autographs but coat way more! Bret truly is there for his fans even when not feeling that great and I just want to say from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU! These are memories I will never forget. I had to pull the guy with us in last night because he was just so much fun. Not sure of his name but he was great! Both my parents have diabetes so paying for the M&G and doing the auction items means so much to us! It is money very well spent!!! <3

Keep rockin everyone!

When I met Bret on 10/5/16 I asked him if he could sign a picture of
us for my Mom and he was so happy to do it because he appreciates his fans. When my Mom got it she was so happy. Thank you again Bret! – Kim

The night and I’m about to tell you about is the best night of my life…
on September 22nd 2016 my number one bucket list wish was granted what was that wish you may ask. Well that wish was to meet to meet Bret Michaels.

You see I knew my friends were taking me and I also knew that I couldn’t afford much so I just figured the concert was the gift and I was content with that but I wanted to be closer because as you can see in the photo I have cerebral palsy find me to a wheelchair so it makes it hard for me to see. My friends surprised me with a backstage pass.

Thank you again for a wonderful night!



I want to thank you for making my best friends birthday and our night the most memorable experience yet! We have both been huge fans since we were little, and this night was by far on the top of nights we will never forget! – Keri


My son and I had the BEST time on 11-4 at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Minnesota where we saw Bret Michaels Band perform. It was my son’s first ever Bret Michaels concert experience and he LOVED every minute! The show was amazing and energetic as always. My son rocked out and sang along to all his favorite songs. 

We can’t wait to see you again next time you play in Minnesota! We love you BMB!

Keep rockin’!

I shared the story with Bret for the first time last night on my 39th birthday on the inspiration behind the tattoo. I had been through hell my whole life and have battled depression and I was in a really dark place when I was 13. I came home from school and had the radio on as always. I grabbed a knife and started slicing my wrist. Just then Something to Believe In came on. The lyrics and his voice reached into my heart and stopped me from finishing it. It spoke to my soul in a way no other music ever has. That song and his voice saved my life that many years ago. So I got this tattoo to remember and show what a special song it is for me. Music has been a big part of my life. Thank you Bret for caring about all of your fans. – Tina

Just a huge thank you for always being so good to your fans!
I took my daughter to see you last night in Englewood, NJ. Such a great experience, after all these years of going to your concerts, to be able to do that with my 16 year old– who– sang along with me to all your songs (proud parenting moment. Lol) Can’t thank you enough for taking pics with us as a memory keepsake!

You are all heart!



I had the honor of meeting Bret in September at Casino Rama after an

amazing concert. I have never met a celebrity so sweet and kind to his fans. I have met other celebs, but Bret is the most amazing. He took the time for each and every fan. Bret is over the top and this is why he still has such a huge fan base today. – Colleen


Bret you are awesome! Thank you for what you told me in Little Rock, I will never forget it and thanks for the design on my wrist that I got inked today! You are such a awesome man and you always make everyone feel special! Can’t wait to see you again! – Ginger



I had the privilege to meet Bret for the first time in 2013. He was kind enough to autograph my arm, which I promptly had tattooed. Fast forward 3 years, and I talk to my tattoo artist about an addition to the autograph. What he designed for me is phenomenal. I wanted a blue rose with a ribbon wrapped around it with “Something to Believe In” written inside the ribbon. And he gave me exactly what I wanted. As a matter of fact, it came out better than I imagined. “Something To Believe In” has always been my favorite song and still is (especially the acoustic version on True Grit), and the idea for an actual blue rose was inspired by Bret’s “Every Rose” guitar. As a lifelong fan, I wanted to share this with everybody. Thank you so much for your time.

Rock on! – Sandra



I just want to say Thank You again to Bret for all he does. He’s such an

inspiration and a truly genuine human being. I attend his concerts every time he is in the area and want to thank him (and the BMB) for always making me feel like a teenager again and for taking away any stresses, aches/pains etc. It’s always’ Nothing But A Good Time!

A Fan Forever – Angela


Thanks again for another great show in Hampton Beach! It has become our favorite girls weekend of the year! And as always, Bret was gracious and sweet when we met him after the show! Such a great concert & awesome time!

Michelle & Natalie



I just wanted to say “Thank You” to Bret and the whole B*M*B crew. You all made my son’s night. He has been telling everyone about getting to go on stage with Bret. He keeps saying “mom they are so nice”. It looks like I’m going to have a new concert buddy in my little boy. He’s ready for another show. Keep rockin’ and being the amazing group of guys that you are. Can’t wait to make the trip to KC MO in October for another great show. – Dawn and Brayden

I have loved Bret Michaels for as long as I can remember. His music has been such an inspiration to me for such a long time and has helped me get through a lot of difficult times in my life. Meeting him and having him see my “every rose” tattoo was the best night of my life. He is such a sweet and genuine soul. Now I’ll have his signature to go right next to my tattoo! Thank you Bret! – Alyssa

I just wanted to share my newest Bret inspired ink ! I grew up listening to Bret. Having met Bret 3 times over the past few years, I have become an even bigger fan! Not a day goes by that I dont hear Brets voice through my speakers. – Penny

The concert in WV was yet another epic BMB success. Bret, I was super excited and honored to acquire your leather jacket that you wore on Rock of Love from Stage It. It is a great accessory to add to my closet, priceless! Thanks so much for taking the time to talk and sign everything. Of course the best part, as always are the hugs. Best medicine for what ails you. Again, thanks so much Bret for another amazing evening. – Missy

Thank you for an amazing show in Biloxi and for another opportunity
to see you again! Traveling from Atlanta to Biloxi was challenging for me this year but once again, you inspire me to do better, help others more, to brave my diabetes and live life tenaciously overcoming all challenges. Love to you and I hope to see you again next year!

Fan and friend for life,

I finally got to meet Bret at Fort Fest in Thunder Bay, Ontario, July
18th, 2015 where as expected he put on an exceptionally awesome show! I can not say enough about all of the hard work and effort he puts into numerous charities, mainly diabetes which hits home for me. It was a pleasure and honor meeting you Bret and I hope to see you on the road again soon, you are truly one class act!! Cheers 😉 – Patricia



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

image1What 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!


Awesome fan tattoo! – Team Bret 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.

– Mechille


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

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.
