The 47-year-old rocker went to hell and back last year, but in just a few weeks he’ll be on the road to recovery.

Bret Michaels will undergo major heart surgery in just 21 days. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Bret’s rep, who revealed the Poison front man is expected to return to St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center on Jan. 24 to repair a hole in his heart.

The surgery will be performed at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona — the same place he was treated for his brain hemorrhage in April. We told you recently that Bret was “looking forward to feeing 100 percent” and he recently told reporters he’s “very positive [the hospital] will do an amazing job.”

Despite Bret’s upcoming surgery, the recently engaged rocker performed on New Year’s Eve at Orlando’s City Walk and is currently working on a new album.
