Bret Michaels' 2012 solo tour brings him to Largo

His next visit will be a lot more cozy: Michaels is bringing his Get Your Rock On Tour 2012 to the Largo Cultural Center on Friday, Oct. 5. Tickets are $59.50, which seems pricey, but really it's more than fair considering every fan will be sitting nearly in his lap. Nah, the LCC isn't that small. There are a few hundred seats there, but it's a great place to see a concert by one of your heroes -- especially if you want to sit up close.

When Stuck in the '80s interviewed Bret a few years ago, he talked about small gigs, where just a dozen or so people would show up. If I know his fans around here, the LCC will easily be packed. And I'm betting Bret sticks around afterward to hobnob and sign autographs.
