BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Hard Rock Biloxi is hoping a musician can draw tourists to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and this celebrity is dealing with a set back of his own.
Former poison lead singer, Bret Michaels, will be at the Hard Rock Casino May 28th. It will be his first concert since suffering a brain hemorrhage nearly a month ago.
The show will attract some national attention, and that's something the folks at Hard Rock are looking forward to.
"To hear that he's coming back, and he's chosen Hard Rock Biloxi to be the property where he's going to kick off his comeback. We're so excited in so many ways," said Hard Rock Biloxi Director of Entertainment Robyn Smith. "Despite the fact with all the issues down on the coast right now that are all a little bit negative, this has been a breath of fresh air and a little bit of revitalization for our area."
Smith said Hard Rock expects the Memorial Day weekend concert to be a sell-out, and tickets have been going fast.
