The '80s hard-rock band Poison are planning a summer 1999 festival

tour called "Exiled From Mainstream," which will probably include fellow '80s

rockers Def Leppard and Whitesnake, according to Poison


singer Bret Michaels. "It's going to be like a Lollapalooza for hard

rock," said Michaels, whose first solo album, A Letter From Death

Row, is out this week as a companion to his film of the same name.

"It's gonna be no-ego, straight-out, one-big-stage and just play and have

fun," Michaels said of the tour, adding that it will kick off Memorial Day
