In fact, this year, it won the ACM (Academy of Country Music) Industry Award for Nightclub of the Year! The ‘Joe’ is already awesome, but it’s about to get a whole lot better! From complete renovations to new offerings, such as valet parking, the “Joe” will have a totally updated atmosphere, perfect for concerts. All of these changes are made possible thanks to the “Joe’s” new owner, Chuck Ward. He’s been in the real estate business for 30 years, and he’s already begun to give the club a much-needed face-lift.

Bret Michaels, the lead singer of the 1980s rock band Poison, brings his True Grit country-rock solo tour to The Orleans Showroom Nov. 21 and 22.

A jack-of-all-trades, Michaels has found success in the music industry with the Billboard chart-topping band, Poison; and on television, starring in VH1’s “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels” and NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice 3.”

The rocker’s career expanded to television in 2007 when he starred in “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels,” a VH1 reality dating show spanning three seasons that served as the inspiration behind his solo album “Rock My World.” His reality television career continued with the third season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” a reality game show hosted by Donald Trump. Michaels went on to win the title of Celebrity Apprentice and raised $640,000 for the American Diabetes Association, his chosen benefitting charity.

After winning “Celebrity Apprentice,” Michaels went on to release the 2010 Billboard #1 Hard Rock Album “Custom Built,” featuring a collaboration with Miley Cyrus and a cover of Sublime’s hit “What I Got.” In April 2015, Michaels released country-rock single “Girls on Bars,” an original song on the compilation album, “True Grit.” Other original songs on the album include “A Beautiful Soul” and “Get Undone.”

The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $59.95 plus tax and fees and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.284.7777, or by visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
