Bret Michaels to open Hoosier Park's new indoor venue

Lineup includes Pointer Sisters, Josh Turner, Cheap Trick

ANDERSON — Bret Michaels, lead singer of the band Poison, will kick off Hoosier Park Racing & Casino's new Terrace Showroom concerts on Saturday, Nov. 23.

Better known as the front man for the band Poison, Michaels is also an actor, producer and reality television personality. More than 30 million of his records have been sold worldwide. In total, Poison charted 10 singles in the Top 40, including six Top 10 singles and the No. 1 single, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," which Michaels wrote.

All shows will begin at 8 p.m. The acts set to perform are:

- Saturday, Nov. 23, Bret Michaels- Saturday, Dec. 14, The Pointer Sisters- Friday, Jan. 17, Josh Turner- Saturday, Feb. 22, Cheap Trick

Hoosier Park's new indoor venue is set for completion early this month after four months of construction, Jahnae Erpenbach, Hoosier Park's vice president and general manager of gaming, said in a press release.

The 1,200-seat, state-of-the-art indoor facility features custom-built and cushioned theater-style seating, an arena quality light and sound system, and a full service dining section. One of the venue's more unique elements are 20 private suites complete with personal 32-inch HDTVs and modern lounge furniture.

"Over the past five years, Hoosier Park guests have been giving us suggestions for a new indoor venue," Erpenbach said in the release. "With their collective input, we built the new Terrace Showroom to give each and every guest a more thrilling experience featuring the biggest names in entertainment — from national touring music acts and comedy shows to noteworthy speakers and authors."

Tickets for Bret Michaels go on sale Friday, are priced from $35-$85 and include dinner and show packages. Remaining show tickets will be on sale soon.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000 or by visiting Ticketmaster.com. Concertgoers may also purchase directly from the box offices located in Shelby's Gifts at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino or the Logo Shop located at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino. Club Centaur and Grand Rewards members will receive a 20 percent discount on tickets purchased at both box offices.
