bret michaels singing Bret Michaels kicks off tour, despite doctor's warningApparently, Bret Michael‘s “Celebrity Apprentice” win and his awesome “American Idol” performance,  have only served to whet his appetite for more appearances.

He still faces surgery to repair a hole in his heart  but he plans to be onstage Friday (May 29) night to kick off his tour at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.  Much to his doctor’s dismay.

]]>TMZ, his doctor was not in favor of him performing tonight because he’s “not 100%.” Short of physical restraint, there’s not much his doctor can do. But there will be extra precautions taken tonight. As well as medical staff unhand, TMZ reports:  “Bret will be slower on stage … not a lot of dancing and will take it easy.” And the AC in the Hard Rock venue will be set on high to keep his temperature lower and keep him from sweating too much.
