After surviving a major medical scare, Bret Michaels was back on stage on Friday for his first full concert — and was there.

Limping only slightly, the rocker and Celebrity Apprentice winner hit the stage at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, clad in tight jeans and black T-shirt, along with a signature cowboy hat and bandana.

"I've got a little bitty hitch in my left giddy up, but I think we'll be all right," he told the sell-out crowd of 1800 people.

"It's an awesome feeling, I'm glad to be here."

VH1 camera crews were on hand filming for Michaels' new reality show Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.

Last month, Michaels suffered a potentially life-threatening brain hemorrhage and underwent an appendectomy.

Then a little over a week ago, he experienced a warning stroke that led to the discovery of a hole in his heart.

While recovering from the series of health scares, he repeatedly expressed a desire to get back on the concert stage, and finally achieved that goal with a surprise performance on Wednesday's American Idol finale.
