Cinderella

Saw this mentioned in another thread, so I looked it up. Cinderella are playing the Shepherd's Bush Empire on 25 June. Great band, I'd be keen to go, but tickets are ... wait for it ... £25 a pop!!! :omg:

 

So I don't know if I'll be able to afford it... :unsure:

 

Any other HH-ers thinking of being there?

That's a bloody rip off if you ask me.

 

Nightranger is only £15 which is far more reasonable and they are a far better band too. No brainer for me.

Kiefer's voice will probably blow out before they even get on the plane anyway <_<

The time I saw them he was great and sounded great but that was after they'd been off the road for a few years and after he'd had some operation I believe.

They are both great live but I guess that Cinderella were always a fav of mine so I enjoyed them more but they were both great.

The thing is, £20 is probably about normal for the Shepherds Bush Empire, considering its size, and has probably gone up since last year because of the VAT increase.

Last few gigs I saw there ere Europe (£18) & Steel Panther (£17 although that was originally sposed to be at the Electric Ballroom).

 

As for the O2 Islington, I assume its the one downstairs, but even that is tiny compared to Shepherds Bush.

Last few gigs I saw there were Tragedy (£8 upstairs), Bowling For Soup (£12 Jaret & Erik acoustic) & Buckcherry (£17.50).

 

As you can see, with the exception of the Buckcherry gig, the prices for Islington are quite low and the tickets for Shepherds Bush are somewhat higher, although to be fair, they shouldnt be any higher than £20 really.

I guess it all depends on whether this is a one off gig and how many supports there are etc.

 

I will certainly be buying one when my ebay money clears.

 

Now, nearly £45 for the Whitesnake gig at Hammersmith, thats a rip off.

Dont mind a handful of Nightranger songs, but love the entire Cinderella catalogue so I know which one is better value for money in my book.

I dunno if I would wanna pay more than £10 to see Nightranger to be honest, but I may consider it if any of my friends are going.

Well its all a matter of taste in the end.....but for me how anyone could not love those first 4 or 5 Nightranger albums is a mystery to be. Hardly a filler on board any of them, with 'Dawn Patrol' and 'Man In Motion' being genre classics IMO.

 

I would say after Journey they are bordering on my second fav band ever.

See, I can take or leave Journey as well. For me the likes of Journey & Nightranger fall into the same category as Styx, Foreigner and Reo Speedwagon etc. Bands that have a handful of truly great songs, but the rest of their albums are pure blah blah blah to me. One song after another that just sounds the same.

At the end of the day, I am sure there are bands which I would say "I dont understand how anyone couldnt love them", but thats just my opinion against someone elses.

Well said, agree 100%. It can still be quite scary to say you don't like Treat or Pink Cream 69 on here though. ;)

 

Back to Cinderella, I'm with you in that I prefer them (times a million) to Nightranger. Just don't think I can pay £25 though, so I think I'll miss out this time. It's looking like Vicious Rumors will be my only gig this year.

They seem to be trapped in a vicious circle though. They go on tour to drum up interest in possibly doing a new album, Kiefer blows his voice out while on tour, they have to go home and wait for him to heal up, years go by, they go out on tour AGAIN to drum up interest in a new album, Kiefer blows his voice out AGAIN, etc., etc.

£15 for Night Ranger is wonderful, shame Jeff Watson isn`t with them anymore though. :tumbsup:

 

I`d pay £25 to see Night Ranger with Cinderella supporting :whistle:

That would be a strange line-up. I think I'd leave before the headliners came on.

 

Who is the band in your photo? One of them looks a tiny bit like Will Ferrell. But not much.

Mate with the amount of bands you dont like, Im surprised you come on here at all ;-)

 

Yeah to be honest I was just thinking aloud.....cos for me as a fan of melodic rock, Nightranger are pretty awesome.

 

Hey ho to each their own.

Wowser are there different concerns about ticket prices around the world. £25 = aud$40, which I would be close to calling a "bargain" to see Cinderella for that price.

 

£15 = aud$24, which is like asking would you prefer to buy a hamburger or see Night Ranger.

 

Seriously, I do wonder if you guys do know how good you have it. ;) I tell you now, if either Cinderella or Night Ranger came down to Australia there's no way you'd see them for less than about aud$65-70 each. :(

i agree Geoff.

 

Living in the very far side from US/UK, to see a great old band coming here to play is definitely a luxury. To see Night Ranger or Cinderella, I'll be glad to pay even as far as £50 for that, since that'd probably be their first and probably last gig here :D

that's very true lol

and i don't understand, why the heck didn't they write new songs at all since 1994 ? i bet it's quite easy to put up 10 good songs after all these years

I'm sure they actually wrote an album, and possibly recorded or at least demo'd it when they were signed with Portrait, but they cant release any of it because the label owns the songs or something like that.

Only thing I would say is what is the average wage in Australia, as obviously a straight conversion rate isnt always an exact comparision.

I mean, the minimum wage here is something around the £6 per hour mark, and in Aus I believe its something like $15 an hour, then your $60 is more like £25 to us rather than the conversion rate.

Conversion rates really only benefit or go against you if you buy something in/from another country.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).
