Last night Bret Michaels’ Parti-Gras tour rolled into Chicago (Tinley Park) for another amazing night at Credit One Amphitheatre. From the time the parking lots opened, fans were out in masses, tailgating and pre-gaming for the party that awaited inside. As a first year concept, Parti-Gras continues to be successful because it is simply about a night of great vibes, big hits, all killer / no filler with people coming to celebrate having an awesome time. From the parking lots to the merchandise experience where fans line-up to grab the latest high quality and bad ass designs on newest Parti-Gras merch items which are flying off the shelves, to the show itself Parti-Gras truly is an inclusive come one, come all mentality. During the meet and greet, Bret creates an up close and personal experience with fans, taking photos, signing autographs, talking and even handing fans guitar picks. Under the side -stage VIP tiki hut, Bret comes over during the show to hang with fans and interact. With a multitude of celebrities, local media personalities and beyond joining the set finale of “Sweet Home Alabama” completes a night of good times with great friends and family.
As a humanitarian having also been named College Radio Ambassador for his efforts / donation of $10,000 to help support college students seeking to realize their dreams in media, Michaels also provides opportunities to college students who show passion and talent to help them on their journey in print / digital / social media, photography and more.
