Poison To Tour U.S. With Cinderella, Dokken, Slaughter

Outing will coincide with release of 'Talk Dirty to Me' rockers' latest LP, 'Power to the People.'

Glam-rockers Poison will tour the U.S. with fellow hair-band holdovers Cinderella, Dokken and Slaughter, beginning in June.

The tour, titled Power to the People — also the name of Poison's upcoming album — kicks off June 13 in Hershey, Pa., and ends Aug. 17 in Denver.

Best known for such hits as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" (RealAudio excerpt) and "Talk Dirty to Me," Poison hit the road last year with rock groups Ratt, Great White and L.A. Guns.

The band, which is back to its original lineup of singer Bret Michaels, bassist Bobby Dall, drummer Rikki Rockett and guitarist C.C. DeVille, will release Power to the People in June, a band spokesperson said.

The new album will feature live tracks recorded on the 1999 summer tour, as well as five new cuts, including DeVille's vocal debut on "I Hate Every Bone in Your Body But Mine."

Earlier this month, Capitol/EMI released Crack a Smile and More, originally recorded in 1994 with interim guitarist Blues Saraceno, but fattened up with tracks recorded for "MTV Unplugged," featuring DeVille on guitar.
