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

Bret was full of energy at the Hard Rock Casino in North Field, OH on Friday! I had such a lovely time at the meet and greet. He is such a genuinely nice guy! – Jen

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!

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

Bret Michaels and I before the NASCAR race at NHMS, Loudon NH. I gave him a tube of Glucose tablets to keep in his guitar case. I hope the rest of his tour goes well.


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!

What a week! Got to see BMB on Long Island on Monday (in a downpour), then headed to NYC with my best friend of 30 years ,Tracey from Florida to Fox and Friends. Tracey flew in just for the show so we could go together. We both LOVE Bret for as long as we’ve been friends. After the show at Fox and Friends, Bret took pictures with so many fans even though he had to make a stop before heading to the Hard Rock Cafe. We were disappointed because we couldn’t get to him. By the time we got up to him, he was getting on his bus. He said to meet him at the Hard Rock. We headed over there. After waiting for him to come out, we finally got our picture. Even though he was being reminded by his crew that he had a plane to catch, he took the time for more pictures and autographs with a smile on his face. Bret is such an amazing person! Can’t wait for the next show! Thanks again Bret for another great memory!

On July 11th I met Bret for the 5th time. When he asked me if I had anything for him to autograph I offered myself. He kindly signed his name & the next day I went to Rose of No Man’s Land in Woodbury, MN and had tattoo artist Kris make the autograph a part of me forever.

Bret was my 14th tattoo. It is healing quite nicely! I’m very pleased with it!

Thank you again, Bret for such an amazing show at Jackpot Junction Casino. I hope you will come back to the Twin Cities around Christmas time again like you did in 2013.

Take care,

Childhood friends Diane and Laura hanging with Bret in Ohio.


I met Bret at the Columbus, OH show (7/5/14) LIFELONG Bret fan and meeting him was everything and more that I thought it would be. Bret signed my shoulder so I could get it tattooed, which I did Sunday. Here is the pic of us and the tattoo pic. Thank you Bret for being as gracious and caring.

– Shelly



I have been waiting for years to meet Bret and was supposed to at Annie’s years ago, but it didn’t work out so I finally got to meet him on June 15, 2014 at Indian Creek in Ohio. I can’t believe it’s true even now as I look at the picture of him and together one big thing crossed off my bucket list for sure.

– Cindy


This photo was taken at the July 5 concert at Scioto downs. Bret was very awesome and such a nice and loving man. I have always been a long time Bret fan and I always will be. Bret you are the best. Take care my friend.

I have been a fan of Bret Michaels for as long as I can remember and I have always wanted to meet him. On July 5, 2014 my dream came true, I met Bret! I went to his concert at Scioto Downs in Columbus, Ohio and he ROCKED! I had the best night of my life and hated to see it end. I had him sign my wrist so I could get it tattooed and have his autograph forever. Can’t wait to see you again Bret.
