Bands step up to help Bret Michaels' show ticket holders

Bret Michaels was not the only performer shut out after last week's fiasco at the Regional Market. Three local bands who were to open for Michaels were also left out in the cold. But, rather than to continue to dwell in the negativity of all of this,  these musicians have come up with a creative semi-solution.

Silent Fury's front man, Mick Fury, along with members of The Feroni Project and Dirty Little Secret will be performing Sunday at ShamRocks Rock and Roll Irish Pub (109 E. Taft Rd., North Syracuse) in a show dubbed The Antidote show.

Admission is free for anyone with a ticket to the Bret Michaels show and $10 for everyone else. Proceed from the show will go to the American Diabetes Association, Bret Michaels' favorite charity.

In a statement on his Web site, Mick Fury explains:

I (Mick) feel horrible about what happened with the Bret Michaels show, and I wanna do my best to make it up to you all... So whether you bought tickets from the promoter, myself, or any of the bands, please come down and enjoy some music.

In addition, all Silent Fury merchandise will be on sale for half price. 

As for refunds for the Aug. 5 show, promoter Michael Banks is promising that he'll do whatever it takes to get people their money back, even if he has to borrow it.

Fans of Asia, who was to perform this past Thursday at the market will have an opportunity to see them Saturday in Rochester at the Main Street Armory. Admission is free with a donation of a can of food for the Rochester food bank. Ths show starts at 7 p.m.
