Cinderella's Return...Captured on YouTube

Cinderella played their first show in years Friday night at the Grizzly Rose in Denver. I trolled YouTube looking for videos but didn't find much - just a lone clip of the band's (apparent) first couple songs of the night. The clip is of "Second Wind/Push Push" and is a little hard to discern at first but gets better as the clip rolls on. Cinderella immediately packed up their gear and headed for Utah last night for another "warm-up" show. The band will play Verona, New York on April 8th and Philadelphia on April 9th.

Someone on Metal Sludge posted the setlist:

Second Wind / Push Push
The Last Mile
Night Songs
Somebody Save Me
Heartbreak Station
Coming Home
Fallin' Apart At The Seams
Long Cold Winter
Gypsy Road
Don't Know You Got (Till It's Gone)
Nobody's Fool
Shelter Me
Shake Me

As you know, Cinderella is booked for a lot of festivals including Rocklahoma, Shiprocked, M3 and Sweden Rock. Come on summer!

Ah, sounds as if Keifer found his voice. The band is perfectly sloppy, like a Warhol painting! perfecto! Can't wait for M3...

They sound like they never went away, and that's a good thing...

Soooo excited for this.

It's hard to tell definitively how Keifer's voice sounds from this clip because it's not the best sound quality, obviously, but moments hint at sounding like he's back!

Viewing it (several times) definitely got me psyched!

I'll be seein' 'em with y'all at M3, Bri, Ram and Sweet Lou! We're gonna have to raise a toast with Allyson and all the Bringbackglammsterz on the scene! Are you gonna be there, Gary and Kenny O? You guyz gotta come, man! Scorps? Kix? Vince? Cinderella? Scabs? How can you miss it?

p.s. Hey, boyz, I saw Kix at Ram's Head Live! in Baltimore a week ago yesterday and I'm tellin' ya, they were absolutely killer. Seriously, they could walk away with the unofficial Grand Prize at M3, which will prove to be the ultimate Battle of The 80's Hair Metal Bands (sorry, Klaus)! Ask Heather and John NirVana who also witnessed history when Kix tore the roof off the place. I had the pleasure of meeting them there. So, place your bets now, boyz! The only thing that would keep Kix from winning is brainwashed favoritism on the part of the Metal Sheep Brigade who suffer from too many repeated viewings of too many episodes of Headbanger's Ball in their youth, overexposure to Hair Nation on satellite radio and too many rounds of Rockband and Guitar Hero where the bigger bands overdominate the presence of Kix. Dude, I'm tellin' ya, though I really have to see the entire M3 event from sledgehammer to sledgehammer, before I can really judge for sure, my hunch is they will lay the competition to waste! Hey, to either say, "Hear! Hear!" or get further annoyed, I humbly (Ha!) suggest you guyz look at my additional lists of "Horrendous Hair Metal Songs" in the Comments section of Allyson's older (and instant classic!) post, "Confessional: I Love Bon Jovi But I Don't Like 'Runaway'"... M3! M3! M3! Let's Partay like it's 1989!

C'mon, Kenny O!

Ya gotta come!

Tell ya what, if your comin', I'm buyin'!

Hey, Kenny O, don't forget to check out my lists in the Comments section of Al's post, "Confessional: I Love Bon Jovi But I Don't Like 'Runaway'".

I would love your and anyone else's opinion on my choice selections of what I believe are some of "The Worst Hair Metal Songs Ever Recorded!"

Some are ones others picked but I've added some more. It would be great to see your list(s), too, though I do like your blanket "Clear Channel Death List" concept, except for Zep and AC/DC. Somehow they never get old for me though I admit I'm listening to that stuff a lot less simply because I more or less fried it out by the mid-80's.

I'm listening much more to stuff like your tips such as Danger Danger, "Cockroach" (YES!) and many others you and others have made to me over the last several months on the best site on the planet,!

I've now got some playlists up to 24 hours long of songs from nearly 375 bands that should belong on XM (to improve their programming) or Muzak (for elevators to Hell!), IMHO. That's around 375 songs without an exact repeat!

In other words, if the singer leaves and joins a new band (i.e. Graham Bonnet of Rainbow, Alcatrazz and Impellitteri), he gets another up at bat. If a band loses a singer and gets a new one (i.e Danger Danger), they get another up at bat.

Interestingly, these playlists actually contain some of the very songs I despise but still have listed in the interest of historical completeness.

But one band is only represented once on each playlist and is considered one of my all time faves...

The one, the only, Cinderella!

p.s. Kenny O! Splurge on the M3 ticket now and start savin' for the trip this week, bro! We gotta see ya there and you need to see Cinderella, Scorps, Kix, Vince, et. al., man!

Hey Metalboy,

I was at the Kix show on the 13th and I agree that they ripped a hole in the roof, BUT don't go annointing them "Kings of M3" just yet. The Scorps & Tom and the boys may have something to say about that.

On a side note, I saw Charm City Devils this past Friday night at Ram's Head Live and I can't believe that these guys aren't getting more attention. John Allen is an excellent frontman. Going to see them again this Friday along with Pop Evil and Sweet Cyanide at the Croc Rock in Allentown, PA.

See ya at M3.

FYI - I was also at the Grizzly Rose show in Denver and they didn't play Long Cold Winter. Otherwise, the set list is correct. Tom sounded great - he was definitely "singing" more than screaming like we're accustomed to hearing him. After the first few songs Tom said "This is our first show in three years and I'll be honest - I'm a little nervous." Otherwise, they just rocked it. Great show....

This a link posted that shows 7 really good quality videos of the set.

Can't wait until April 9th.

Keifer's a damn good "singer" as evidenced on the opening bars of "Heartbreak Station", "Nobody's Fool" or "Coming Home".

If he needs to "sing" the whole songs as opposed to screaming 'em, I'm cool with that. Everyone knows he killed his voice by doing that, though, granted, I wish I had seen him back in the day when he was doin' it.

Whiteman's still screamin' but his technique is obviously less torturous to his vocal chords, otherwise he'd be singin' more like you're saying Keifer is now. For an example of Whiteman singing, check out the classic Kix ballad, "For Shame", which sounds like it could have been right from the '60's.

Hey, Bill! Damn! Wish I'd met ya up at that Kix show in Baltimore. Killer! I was point blank in front of Younkins. The NirVana's were right behind me. Where were you positioned?

Also, yeah, I can't figure it out on Charm City Devils, y'know why they haven't hit it bigger. They're just going to have to put out a new album even bigger than the last.

When the powers that be at Ram's Head supposedly asked Whitman who he thought should open for them, I wish he had said, "Charm City Devils" instead of local stalwarts, "Facedancer", who, though they may have a certain place in Baltimore Rock'n'Roll History, really aren't all that great, sorry to say.

I hope Charm City Devils keep going. They should take a lesson from Kix and just keep sluggin' away. Whiteman said in between a couple of songs that "We're making more money now than ever before!"

Long Live Kiefer's Voice! Long Live Cinderella! Long Live Kix! Long Live Charm City Devils!

i was at the grizzly rose. they did great! loved it!

JN! Thanks for the link above! These clips are proof Cinderella is back. They also show how far we have come technologically, as the digital video footage was not pro shot yet still looks amazing, and point blank, replete with Keifer crankin' a lead right in our faces. This stuff is as close to being there as possible, really. Or should I say, "unreally"! Truly amazing footage!

p.s. In contrast, if anyone has any interest, I just skewered Journey on Al's old post, "Confessional: I Love Bon Jovi But I Don't Like 'Runaway'". Thanks, Shadow, for egging me on with your list of Hair Metal Disses. Unlike such Pop Fops as Journey or original subject, Bon Anchovy, our Cinderella, however, remains unscathed and, as this footage verifies, deservedly so...
