HURON – The South Dakota State Fair and Pioneer Seeds welcome music icon Bret Michaels to the grandstand on Friday, September 3.

With over three generations of fans, Bret Michaels is revered as a legend in the entertainment industry. One of music’s most iconic and enduring singer-songwriters, Michaels’ massive success includes selling over 50 million records worldwide and numerous hit singles. As a reality television star, Michaels has appeared on an extensive library of hit shows, including VH1’s hit show “Rock Of Love,” winning the top-rated season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice and Travel Channel’s “Rock My RV” currently featured on the Discovery+ streaming platform.

As he cemented his place as the “king of streaming,” Bret’s shows can be seen on networks including Apple TV, Hulu, Tubi, Pluto TV, and even his own “Classics Acoustic” streaming series.

Also known for his charitable and philanthropic work, Michaels continues to give back through his Life Rocks Foundation. The Foundation recently awarded a Student Education Enhancement Grant while Michaels served as an Ambassador for World College Radio Day and College Radio.

With the long-awaited return of touring, Michaels is ready to kick the party into high gear. He’ll perform the hits he’s known for as the frontman of Poison, including “Nothin’ but a Good Time”, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and “Something to Believe In”. Tonight is a return to form and a night of endless hits, good music for good times. Michaels’ latest single and video, “Unbroken”, was co-written and recorded with his youngest daughter, Jorja Bleu.
