If you're looking for nothin' but a good time, how can you resist former Poison frontman Bret Michaels who will be performing at Belterra Resort & Casino on Saturday.
Michaels will play at 7 p.m. in the Center Stage Showroom. He will be performing several of his classic hits, including "Unskinny Bop" and "Every Rose has its Thorn."
Michaels is credited as a singer-songwriter, musician, actor, director, screenwriter, producer and reality television personality.

Michaels has had several solo albums and a soundtrack album to "A Letter from Death Row," which he starred in, wrote and directed in 1998. Michaels has appeared in several movies and television shows.
Michaels became a hit online due in part to his dating reality television show, "Rock of Love." He was the winning contestant on the NBC reality show "Celebrity Apprentice 3."
He became a topic of conversation again at the 2009 Tony Awards when he was hit by a piece of the set as it was lowered into place.
The day before Michaels' show, Belterra will play host to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. The contemporary swing band from southern California will play at 8 p.m. Friday.
