Bret Michaels Pushing Himself to the Limit?
Bret Michaels is going to give us a stroke if he keeps up like this!

The rocker has made his mind up about going on tour, and he's not letting his recent medical hiccups get in his way.

And now just today, Bret has decided to add even more dates to his tour this summer.

Bret Michaels to Undergo Heart Surgery

A statement on his website reads: "Hey everyone! Once again Bret and all at Michaels Entertainment can not thank you enough for your many well wishes, prayers and thoughts through Bret's recent life threatening health issues! That being said, let's get to it."

He added, "A few more shows were added to the tour schedule yesterday including Michigan, Idaho and Oklahoma."

Bret Michaels: Who Needs Rest?

This comes on the heels of Bret being considered as a replacement for Simon Cowell on American Idol.

Hollyscoop spoke to fellow musician Colbie Callait at the Women in Film event this week, who told us, "I’m sure he will be great, I think it’s just hard. Simon leaving, the show is not be the same. Kara luckily is an amazing addition to it and Ellen has been wonderful too. I think Simon was the glue that held everyone together. Im sure the show will still do amazing."

We asked if she thinks it's smart that Bret is going back on tour so fast. "Everyone is different," Callait explained. "I know I need more rest than some artist. Some people love touring and that is just their life. It may make his life better."

Kate Flannery, who plays the hysterical Meredith on The Office, is a fan of Bret replacing Simon, "as long he is honest enough."

She told us, "It's really about being honest that is the great thing about Simon, he is no BS. You need somebody to just cut to the chase. Somebody has to do that on the show. I hope its Brett who knows, he has been through a lot and it would be a nice fit for him."

"Hopefully it wont kill him," she added.

We certainly hope not! We commend Bret for his drive, but part of us wishes he would give himself a little vacation instead!
