In Case You Missed Cinderella This Summer... 

Posted on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 12:02AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments12 Comments

In the event you didn't get out to see Cinderella live this summer (I didn't either), there's a full concert up on YouTube. The show is from Rams Head in Baltimore, Maryland and was recorded just a couple days ago. Overall, Tom Keifer sounds pretty good. His voice is definitely different than it was during the band's hey day, but it's solid. Sadly, it's the same setlist as always, meaning songs like "Shake Me" and "Heartbreak Station." Still, this is good Glam. Enjoy.

Just saw them Saturday, what a great show!! His voice, while not like the old days is still 100% better than a couple years ago. (Set list wise I do have to agree) Sab Bach actually sounded decent this time and made everybody hyped up for Cinderella, Lynch Mob came out and just blew the place up. Oni belongs with George! In Detroit we got lucky as John Corabi started off with a real cool acoustic set and sounded awesome.(I didn't even recognize him until he was singing Hooligan's Holiday as I didn't even know he was going to be there..haha) Enuff Z Nuff seemed to be just hitting a groove when they had to leave as the set was kind of short. I had 3rd row center and spent I think like $140 for the seat but for 5 bands that's a decent price as on this night the quality of music was pretty impressive.

Man, it's killing me I missed these guys as I had been planning to go see them for months. Of, course, it would feel even worse if they had played "The Last Mile" or a few others they have long retired from their playlist.

I still can't figure out why Keifer chooses to play the same sh*t night after night like Crüe and Poison, when he's got the talent to strut his stuff with a wider range of options from their catalogue, a la Cheap Trick, who mix it up every night. You would think the guy gets bored.

I'm beginning to think it might have something to do with his voice, which sounds pretty good these days. Maybe playing the same stuff every night gives him a comfort zone knowing he'll hit every note without straining his voice, something that sidelined this band for years while he had several throat surgeries to get him back to where he is today.

Still, if for some reason, you have never seen Cinderella live, you must go. It borders on the impossible what this band achieves on stage.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Rock and Roll!

I posted a review the other day about this,...I may have been a little unfair as to how good they performed,...I was just watching some youtube of the Detroit DTE show and Cinderella actually sounded great...Sebastian Bach was on before Cinderella and he blew my mind bigtime with his energy and antics...to be honest Bachs voice certainly isnt what it sounds like on record, but it's still pretty damn powerful and as I said his onstage presence is severely strong to say the least...I've only seen Cinderella twice but I think it was the same show both times.They still look damn good for their age also...I think I got so caught up in the Bach RnR antics, maybe had too many beers during that show also, to fully apreciate Cinderella...without a doubt Cinderella was the most Glam that night, although I missed EnuffZ Nuff so not really sure! One thing I will say was that the show was at maybe 1/3rd capacity at best,..I bought my tix on Stubhub for $34 for a pair and that included VIP parking, the tix should have cost $110,...there were alot of season tix people trying to dump the tix I think...the state of the concert scene is in an awful stste right now, thats for Damn sure...

I love me some Cinderella but am tiring of the same songs when I go see them... Personally, I wish they would just do an album front to back then branch off to the hit songs not on that album. They could pull it off.


Speaking of Cinderella sounding..

Ipod to drive to work song of the morning ~ In Motion by Britny Fox (glam enough for ya ?)

Not new Cinderella, but close:

Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tom Keifer is finally releasing his long-awaited and highly anticipated solo album in the Spring of 2013 after entering into a partnership with Merovee Records (a joint venture with Worldwide Pants, Inc.). The as-yet-untitled collection of 14 new songs ranges from intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. It embraces the blues, rock and country roots that have always been present in his unique sound that has generated the sale of over 15 million records worldwide.

The upcoming release is a raw, introspective look at the roller coaster ride that has been Keifer’s life for the past 15 years. From being told that he would never sing again as a result of a partially paralyzed left vocal cord, to the emotional and personal battles that followed, his solo debut is a story of perseverance, a testament to the power of passion and will, when combined with a true love of music.

GNR! Yes! Yes! YES!

That is GLAM enuff for US! And with a Cinderella connection to boot!

Glad you are giving them a vote of confidence. To tell you th truth, I'll take the whole "Long Cold Winter" album played in it's entirety plus the random hit or two with a deep cut or two to round out the show. Now THAT would be worth coming back for!

Tony! Thanks for the update. I'm sure Tom's solo album will be
great. I actually kinda wish Tyler would go for it, too, as far as a solo venture goes. I sish Hetfield would try it, too!

Glamrockerarch! Totally go see 'em, Bro. Keifer's voice is back and it's still the original line up! There's no one out there better if you like your Rock and Roll GLAMourized.

The state of glam show attendance in MD is alive and well. Cinderella packs them in every single time. And the energy at Rams Head was amazing. Tom rand the boys really give their all and it's very evident. I wish they'd play some songs from Still Climbing.

I heard somewhere that Cinderella cannot put out new music because the record that has their contract won't allow them? I don't know if that is true or not, but couldn't they just change their name and put out a new album? Seriously, it's been almost 20 years since Still Climbing.

From what I understand, Kiefer has had a Cinderella album in the can for awhile now and was shopping it around looking for a million dollar deal that simply isn't there today.

I wish he would put it out on Frontiers, the label that's releasing all the new stuff from Classic 80's Hair Metal acts these days, such as Ratt's "Infestation" and their upcoming album. Cinderella can still make some serious bucks on iTunes and all the hype. Putting out an album of new material helps define a band's relevancy.

Though Cinderella has a major following and still retains their Classic line-up, it would serve them well to put a new shot of REAL Rock and Roll out into the world. It's a different climate for our kind of Rock and Roll now -- the success of "Rock of Ages", "Rockband" and "Guitar Hero" in the age of the internet proves people, particularly the kids, are into our music now more than ever!

I'm sorry, but Tom sounds terrible...I would be too embarrassed for him to be in the audience for this. I'll just have to rely on my memories of the DLR tour in '85...first band I ever saw live. This makes me sad.
