Announced on Monday, Bret Michaels, along with WARRANT and FireHouse, is set to headline the "Parti-Gras Music Festival Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza" at the Maine Savings Amphitheater on the Bangor Waterfront on Sunday, Sept. 1st, 2024.

While the Poison frontman visited the Pine Tree State as recently as 2017, he hasn't graced the Queen City of the East in over a decade. Since his last stop in Bangor, Michaels has performed in Maine, notably at AURA in Portland on May 10th, 2017, and the Maine State Pier in Portland on June 25th, 2015, bringing his 'True Grit Tour.'

Despite showing love to the largest city in Maine, the anticipation in Bangor is palpable as Michaels returns to witness the evolution of the Bangor Waterfront since his last visit.
