Bret Michaels' website has been updated again with a note to friends and fans addressing his health and changes to his tour schedule:

"To all of Bret's friends and fans,

"We thank you all for your continued support and outpouring of well wishes for Bret.

"While additional studies are planned throughout the week to hopefully detect the exact cause of the rupture Bret will remain monitored closely by his medical team to make sure no further complications occur. He is responding well to tests and treatments. Even though yesterday was a minor setback Doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery and plan to release more specific information next Monday.

"While Bret is recovering we obviously have some shows that are being rescheduled. We are working to reschedule dates from now until May 21st. At this time we are planning to resume the tour May 26th in Ft. Smith Arkansas provided there are no further complications or setbacks. We will then continue with all scheduled dates throughout the summer and fall, including the June and July tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Look for additional information in the days and weeks to come. For those of you with tickets for shows that are being rescheduled, your tickets will be honored on the new dates. Tickets remain on sale for the shows which are being rescheduled although the new dates have yet to be announced."

UPDATE: this posting has since been removed from Bret's site. We're not going to publicly speculate on what that could mean and will leave that up to the reader, until the next update.

I can only see this happening if they actively want him to die on stage and go out with a bang. I wouldn't recommend buying any tickets for these shows.

Wilco: lol.

As I suspected to begin with, this is all just a ploy for Bret to free himself from the clutches of the dew rag and embrace his baldness.

I'm loving Blindgreed's rag theory. "The baldness is from the brain hemorrhage, I swear!"

I agree, this is a much publicized attempt to drum up support for the retirement of "WigDanna", Brett's sidekick for the past 15+ years.
