Pick your Poison

Fans of the 1980s hair metal scene came to O'Brien Park in Parker for a taste of nostalgia as Poison frontman and solo artist Bret Michaels played the June 8 Parker Days Sneak Peek concert, and they weren't disappointed.

Denver resident Sara Merryman has been a fan since her sister got her into the hair metal genre in the 1980s, and came to hear her favorite Poison songs, like the show opener “Talk Dirty to Me” and “Look What the Cat Dragged In.”

“I'm just here to hear some good music,” Merryman said. “I just want to hear him play some of my favorite Poison songs and whatever else he wants to do.”

After a fun, upbeat set by the 6 Million Dollar Band, Michaels took the stage, jumping from one side to the other and high-fiving nearly everyone in the crowd he could reach. The energetic set included old favorites and covers of classic rock hits like Lynyrd Skynyrd's “Sweet Home Alabama.”
