Poison's Bret Michaels diagnosed with skin cancer
Poison frontman Bret Michaels has revealed he's undergoing surgery after been diagnosed with skin cancer.

In a health update on his official website, 56-year-old Bret Michaels said he"s having two surgical procedures this year - one for a tear on his right shoulder rotator cuff and the other for a patch of skin cancer that was discovered at a recent biopsy.

Michaels confirmed that the two surgeries will take place early this year ahead of The Stadium Tour this summer with Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

The Stadium Tour will take in more than 20 shows opening at Hard Rock Stadium on Tuesday 7th July and wrapping up at Los Angeles SoFi Stadium two months later on Saturday 5th September.

Bret Michaels" full post reads:

"After a very recent kick-off to the new year, physical & MRI, it has been brought to my attention that I have torn my right shoulder rotator cuff which would answer the question why it looks like a lump or bone was sticking out of my right shoulder.

"A little more complex I will also have to undergo a procedure to remove skin cancer that was detected after a recent biopsy. I"m in the hands of incredible specialists who are both positive for great outcomes.

"It may slow me down a bit at the beginning of the year, but if God willing I promise this year will be awesome. Just a few less solo shows & special events until I get this all squared up. As always continuing great diabetic maintenance to keep on rocking in 2020"

Poison last toured North American in summer 2018 and it's been 26 long years since they last played a headline tour in the UK.

Everyone at Planet Rock wishes Bret Michaels success with his surgery and a speedy recovery.
