Bret Michaels of Poison was hospitalized in Nashville on Thursday night (June 30), and the show was canceled.

He was admitted to the hospital just before show time, so the rest of the band went onstage and announced that Michaels had bad reaction to medication and that they wouldn’t be able to do the show without him.

Michaels posted online that doctors “highly recommended” that he rest and save all his energy.

Then, over the weekend, Poison played an abbreviated show in Jacksonville, Florida and performed only 7 songs. The band also canceled all their meet-and-greets in Jacksonville.
