Poison singer and Rock of Love star, Brett Michaels, was hit by the stage set as he was exiting the stage after performing with the Rock of Ages cast in the opening number of tonight’s Tony awards.

OUCH!

He was rushed to the hospital afterward. Not sure what the extent of his injuries are at this time, but it looks like he didn’t break his nose as was feared.

Full performance after the JUMP…

    I saw that, he stayed out front a little too long and then tried to go offstage under the set that was coming down. Looked a bit scary to me. Neil Patrick Harris made a funny though and said “Bret Michaels gave head banging a new meaning” or something close to that and then said “he’s fine.”

    Yea I saw that too!!! It looked like it hurt but I’m glad he seems to be ok.. Loved NPH’s joke about it though. But then again, I just love NPH, period….

    When the next act came out Brett’s hat was still on the stage floor. I guess they walked around it, or someone kicked it to the side off stage view. Live shows, they just keep on going.

    I haven’t seen anything that funny since I was walking across a street and observed this guy who didn’t see this bicycle rider approaching and he opened the car door at exactly the right (or wrong) moment.

    I watched it several times to try and spot the banana peel.

    Please God. Don’t strike me down. Or strike me on the face with a descending stage set.

    You know, he should take some lessons from Angela Lansbury. She never would have missed her mark like that. LOL. What a dope.

  • Calliope

    Dude, I LOLed so hard at that. Not going to lie.

  • sabby_rina

    Ahh I hope he’s alright.

  • chessguy99

    Its his own fault. The other two band members did what they were told to do. Bret just was just being Bret, to into soaking up the applause to notice he was going to be crushed.

  • St.Lucia

    So I hope Bret is okay and everything…

    But I laughed so hard watching that. Maybe it knocked some sense into his tiny little brain to stop doing Rock of Love on VH1….since 3 seasons have gone by and its still not working.

    Poison at the TONY Awards…. what is the world coming to?

  • Kaykohl

    He had a stand-in for rehearsals and didn’t know about the set. Tony Awards twitter said he was ok.

    But the burning question- was his hair still attached to the hat?

    Is it wrong to laugh this hard? As long as I know he’s okay, I have to say it’s pretty funny stuff.

    It’s never wrong to laugh at that douchebag. The only thing that would have made this better is if his wig would have been dislodged from his head. At this point, I guess I just have to assume that the wig is surgically attached.

    Well then it’s his own fault. He should of been at rehearsals like everyone else did. I guess he thought, I know the song, I don’t need to rehearse.

  • jpfan

    I’m glad he’s okay because this is so hilarious. I’m laughing so hard every time I watch it. Plus seeing Stockard Channing come out after he gets clocked.
    So funny.This is right up there w/Spinal Tap and Old School for laffs.

  • Kaykohl

    Sorry, Brett was at rehearsal. I missed that part on the twitter from the rehearsal.

    I don’t think it is supposed to work. Flava Flav did a couple of seasons – until it came out that he had a girlfriend and child at home all that time.

    So the Penthouse Pet of the Year dumped him too?

    There is a report that Brett fractured his nose and has a busted lip:

    Bret Michaels performed at the Tony Awards, and all he got was a nose fracture à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’  and a busted lip.

    According to Michaels’ spokeswoman, the rock singer had X-rays taken after getting clocked in the head by a descending set piece at Sunday’s Radio City Music Hall ceremony.

    Publicist Joann Mignano says Michaels, who performed with his 1980s hair-metal band Poison, fractured his nose and had to get three stitches in his lip. She says he was getting a CAT scan on Monday as a precaution, as he’s had a past neck injury.
