Cinderella cancels tour


Band Ceases Tour Due to Vocalist Tom Keifer’s Hemorrhaged Vocal Cord

July 4 Gibson Amphitheatre Show Canceled

Cinderella has been forced to cease their current U.S. tour due to vocalist Tom Keifer’s serious throat condition. Therefore, their July 4th Gibson Amphitheatre show has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Band management has issued the following statement regarding the situation:

It is with unbelievably deep regret that I must announce that Cinderella's Tom Keifer's left vocal cord has hemorrhaged, thereby making it impossible for him to sing in the immediate future.

Tom felt his throat give way last night (6/11) finishing the set in pre-production rehearsals, went to his vocal doctor (Dr. Stephen Mitchell) in Nashville this morning, and was told the grim news. In the short term, Tom's Dr. told him it would be two to three weeks before the swelling and damage would recede to a point to where an assessment can be made as to whether surgery will be required.

Consequently, and again, most regretfully, we have no choice but to postpone the upcoming Cinderella tour until such time as Tom is ready tour again.
