Bret Michaels has announced he will undergo two surgeries in the coming weeks: one for skin cancer, and the other to repair his rotator cuff

Poison singer Bret Michaels has announced the news that he is prepping for two different surgeries: one to remove skin cancer, and the other to repair a torn rotator cuff.

Michaels broke the news on his official website, stating, “After a very recent kickoff 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.”

He added, “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!”

Michaels is still scheduled to hit the road later this month, beginning with a Jan. 23 show at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tulsa in Catoosa, Oklahoma.

This summer, of course, will bring a major tour for Poison, bringing together Poison, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Def Leppard and Motley Crue for “The Stadium Tour.” Find tour dates for the run here.
