Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the signing of Hard Rock icons CINDERELLA for the European release on the "Live at the Mohegan Sun" album on November 6th 2009.

 

Featuring the all original line-up of Tom Keifer (vocals, guitar), Eric Brittingham (bass), Jeff LaBar (guitar) and Fred Coury (drums), the show was recorded during the VH1 sponsored "Rock Never Stops" package tour, which Cinderella headlined, supported by Ratt, Quiet Riot and Firehouse. The concert was held in Uncasville, Connecticut on July 21, 2005 is now officially and integrally released in Europe as an appetizer to the ultimate live return of the band on the European soil, which is planned for the year 2010!

 

Formed in Philadelphia in 1983 by singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Keifer and bassist Eric Brittingham, they quickly added guitarist Jeff LaBar to the line-up. With Jody Cortez completing the band on drums, Cinderella started to write and perform original material in clubs and bars in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, until Jon Bon Jovi caught one of the performances and alerted his record company, Mercury, who immediately signed the band. Cinderella's debut album "Night Songs", was released in June 1986 and went on to sell over 3 million units, sporting such singles as "Shake Me", "Nobody's Fool" and "Somebody Save Me". Fred Coury replaced Cortez prior to the release of "Night Songs" and the band has remained unchanged since.

 

Two years later Cinderella returned with their second album, "Long Cold Winter". The record was another huge success, selling in excess of 3 million copies with tracks like "Gypsy Road" and "Don't Know What You Got ('Til Its Gone)" becoming soon fan favourites.

 

Their third album, "Heartbreak Station", was released in 1990 followed by "Still Climbing" in 1994. The later two albums featured songs more influenced by Keifer's love of the blues. Cinderella disbanded in 1995 but by 1998, there was interest by promoters for Cinderella to reunite in the original lineup for a tour. Cinderella were later signed to Sony's Portrait label by famed record executive John Kalodner, however the lack of success of the label's initial releases brought the cancellation of the deal as the label folded.

 

Nevertheless, a faithful fan base supported the continued road work by the band, which reunited again in the summer of 2000 for a tour with Poison, followed by a second outing by the two groups in 2002 and regular live activity until 2006 which will be finally resumed during next year. Get ready for the return of Cinderella!

Man that pisses me off. For f*ck's sake, haven't they released every show they've ever played on CD by now? Where the f*ck is some new music?

I am a huge Cinderella fan, but not a huge fan of live albums.

I sorta gave up on buying all the best of CDs, as I already have 3 of them, but I probably will buy this one...maybe.

So while I agree that this is not exactly stunning news, when we are all just wanting a new studio album, like the eloquent Aussie said, the great news (for me) is that I may actually get a chance to see them in the flesh.

They are one of my few top bands that I have yet to see, so this is very good news indeed, especially on top of the newly announced Winger tour as well!

If they're going to insist on releasing live stuff (which I'm a fan of by the way), how about something from the Still Climbing tour so at least we get a different set list for a change?

I am not a real fan of live music on cd, I do enjoy live music when I'm actually there. And yeah, how about some new music?

At least do a cd of cover tunes....or maybe don't.

I think it's official, Cinderella now has at least twice as many live/compilation CDs as they do legitimate studio CDs!

I dont think the band have had much choice in most of the live and compilation CDs, its mostly all down to big record labels.

I think the only two they had a hand in was the Key club one, and the live one released the same year, as that was sold at their shows. All the other live albums have been record label stuff.

Valid point.

 

However the point remains... When was "still climbing" ?? 1995?

This band had so much talent back to '96 so what gives?Stop digging from the vault of live material as i'm sure they should have some unreal unreleased studio material that they can share with we the hardcore fans.

After digging through all my live Cinderella cd's (ALL 5 OF THEM), I noticed that this new release coming up is just a repackaging of the "Extended Versions" release with a couple extra tracks tacked on at the end. Lame fuckers...

Thats unusual, as usually those Extended versions are often repackaged versions of previously released live albums, with less tracks. Looks like they are doing it in reverse now..heh heh.

Didn't they write new songs with Jim Peterik in the early 2000 and he was suppose to produce it as well?

What the hell? That's not a combination I like at all. Why would they need him?

I've never heard that rumor before but I do have an old Metal Edge mag from 2003(I think) with Tom Keifer where he talks about having all of these new Cinderella songs their working on.

Yeah, I can't see that the two styles are interchangable at all... would be amazed if they had been working together.
