LOS ANGELES, May 15 (UPI) -- U.S. rocker Bret Michaels, who suffered a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage April 22, plans to resume performing this month at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Miss.

The show is scheduled for May 28.

"Michaels, who has been rehabbing since his release from ICU, has increased his rehabilitation sessions to twice a day to prepare for his comeback," said a message posted on his Facebook page Friday. "(He) is to continue on all of his solo dates as well as kicking off a tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd which begins June 10 in West Palm Beach, Fla., at the Cruzan Amphitheater."

"We have been overwhelmed with well wishes and offers that continue to pour in for Bret. And promoters have really stepped up to the plate to reschedule dates he missed. Which is a testament to Bret's great live performances and friendships he has built over the years," Brian Ahern, Michaels' agent, said in a statement on the Facebook page.

The singer plans to remain on tour throughout the fall and early winter, with dates scheduled through December.

Michaels also is hoping to attend the May 23 finale of TV's "The Celebrity Apprentice," on which he had been competing before his illness, the Facebook message said.

"We really hope that Bret is well and able to join us at the finale as 'Apprentice' has hit some of its highest ratings ever and I have much respect as he is a fighter and strong competitor," "Apprentice" producer Donald Trump said.

The musician is to make his first televised appearance since being hospitalized on "The Oprah Winfrey Show." The interview is to air May 19.
