Vocalist / guitarist Tom Keifer of Cinderella fame was forced to postpone his October 14th show in Warrendale, PA at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille due to a medical emergency. He was transported to a local hospital where he is stable, and additional information will be released as soon as it's available.
One fan reported via Keifer's Facebook page that she was in attendance and that Keifer "collapsed getting out of his bus to come to the stage."
Drusky Entertainment, the promoter for the show released a statement say Keifer "was unable to perform tonight after being rushed to the hospital right before he was scheduled to perform tonight due to a medical emergency. Please hang on to your tickets as we are looking to reschedule the date ASAP following the speedy recovery of Keifer."
Stay tuned for updates.
Speaking with the Long Island Pulse recently, Keifer discussed his solo career, his album The Way Life Goes, and whether Cinderella will ever reunite. An excerpt is available below.
Q: What can fans expect at the upcoming show at B.B. King’s?
Keifer: "A big, loud rock n’ roll show. We play all their faves from the Cinderella days, stuff off the new record and there’s some cover songs we do that people have been digging. Pretty much what you would expect to see from me: lots of energy, passion and sweat. That’s how we roll."
Q: Would you ever consider a Cinderella reunion?
Keifer: "There’s really no talk of that at all at this point. I’m really happy with what I’m doing and I think everyone else is, too. Everyone else is off doing their own thing. I have put a lot of time into this new project, and it’s been going really well. I’m really enjoying it. I’m happy where I am."

Tom Keifer once sang, "You're only going once around the ride." He's proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of The Way Life Goes - Deluxe Edition, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, The Way Life Goes, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.
The Way Life Goes - Deluxe Edition is finally set for release October 20th via Cleopatra Records. Pre-orders are now available on Amazon (widget below) and on Cleopatra’s website.
The package will include the original album that has been remastered by Richard Dodd (Kings Of Leon, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum). It also has two brand new studio tracks recorded in Nashville by three-time Grammy Award-winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton) with Keifer and his bandmates (#Keiferband: Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Paul Simmons, Paul Taylor, Savannah Keifer, and Kendra Chantelle). Fans will finally get to hear the long-awaited studio recording of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends,” which Keifer performs at all of his concerts, plus a powerful new take on the Cinderella classic “Nobody’s Fool,” newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.
"The reason that I picked up guitar, the reason that I sing the way I do, was all because of that guy,” said Hale of Keifer’s influence on her at a young age. The two first performed “Nobody’s Fool” live together in Atlantic City, NJ in September 2013.
"I remember the first time seeing Lzzy perform live at the House of Blues show in Atlantic City and being absolutely floored by the power of her voice and performance,” Keifer continues. “She's an amazing artist and has been a great inspiration to me as well."
There will also be a bonus DVD with music videos, tour clips, and “The Way Life’s Goin’”, a 30-minute documentary produced by Tammy Vega (Keifer’s longtime official photographer) about the creation of the bonus tracks, exclusive interviews with the band filmed during the new recording sessions, and live footage.
The Way Life Goes - Deluxe Edition will be wrapped in an all new six-panel digipak designed by artist David Calcano (creator of the Fantoons comic strip series) with 20 pages of one-of-a-kind unique illustrations depicting each song.
As Keifer explains, "Everything from the new artwork, documentary, videos and bonus tracks contained in the Deluxe Edition is a sum of all the amazingly talented people who came into our world as a result of the initial release. The two bonus tracks were specifically chosen and recorded as we felt them both to be special collaborations that came about while touring for The Way Life Goes.”
New band members Jarred Pope (drums) and Kory Myers (keyboards/vocals) join the #Keiferband lineup in 2017. Writing has begun for a follow-up to The Way Life Goes with recording slated for fall 2018.
