Poison, featuring the original quartet, will headline the Coors Light Carb Day concert at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 24.
The concert, free with Coors Light Carb Day admission of $20, will take place on the Coors Light Stage in the infield. Coors Light Carb Day tickets are available now at www.ims.com/carbday.
The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide on the strength of 10 singles that have reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including the No. 1 single "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."
Poison formed among friends Bret Michaels, Rikki Rockett and Bobby Dall in the early 1980s in Harrisburg, Pa. The band's national breakthrough came in 1986 with the release of its debut studio album, "Look What The Cat Dragged In," which soared to No. 3 on The Billboard 200. That was the first of three consecutive albums to chart in the top three of the Billboard chart between 1986 and 1990.
Since a successful reunion tour in 1999, the band has toured relentlessly and recorded new and cover material.
Also scheduled May 24 are the final practice for the 33 starters in the Indianapolis 500, the Firestone Freedom 100 race for Firestone Indy Lights and the Pit Stop Challenge.
