Alive@Five entry $10 for remainder of concert season

Concert-goers will save some dough when they come to hear Poison frontman and reality TV star Bret Michaels rock Alive@Five on Thursday, July 25.

Same goes for Matt Nathanson on Aug. 1, Howie Day on Aug. 8 and Michael McDonald on Aug. 15.

The concerts, all of which start at 5 p.m., will set attendees back $10 instead of the usual $15.

The Downtown Special Services District, the organizer of Alive@Five, had lowered the cost of admission for the previous two concerts — a means of boosting lower-than-usual attendance at Downtown Stamford’s popular summer concert series. Now, they’re setting that price for the remainder of the season.

Beer is on sale, too, with Bud Lights costing 4 for $20.

Here’s more on Michaels:

Given his recent forays in reality television (“Rock of Love,” “Rock of Love Bus,” “Rock My RV”), it can be easy to forget that Michaels still knows how to rock. The famous frontman and perennial heartthrob has released a string of post-Poison solo records, including “Jammin’ With Friends,” which is slated for a 2013 release. On stage, he unleashes a full-throttle mix of Poison-era tunes and solo songs.
