If you're of a certain age (mine) and were a hair metal fan in the mid-to-late '80s, this here is some glam fine news for a Monday. Hair metal icons Mötley Crüe and Poison have set differences - real or perceived - aside and teamed up for the tentatively titled Glam-A-Gedon 25 co-headlining tour, featuring special guests the New York Dolls and kicking off in Tupelo, Mississippi, on May 25.

When reporters recently asked Bret Michaels if there was any bad blood between the bands, Michaels laughed: "There may be some friendly competition but there is no bad blood at all on my part. Nikki [Sixx, Mötley Crüe bassist] and I have spoken several times on the phone recently and the conversations went great."

Michaels continued, "Music is a universal language and I am extremely excited that this tour has come together as are the fans, they are truly going to see a great show. Honestly, I could care less about all the mudslinging, it gets nobody nowhere, and after all I have been through health wise in the last year, I am going to try to focus on what does matter which is the show, the fans, fun and personally throwing a hell of a backstage party."

Tickets for the Mötley Crüe/Poison tour will go on sale March 18. Visit or for the latest updates.
