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

lead

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

weekend.
