Cinderella returned to Myrtle Beach on a Wednesday night to a great crowd on their 25th anniversary tour. John Corabi formerly of Motley Crue, Union, & The Scream opened up the show with a great acoustic set. With just a guitar and a stool, John played almost an hour set featuring new music as well as hits from his former bands including a great acoustic version of Motley Crue’s Hooligans Holiday. He seemed to be loving the opportunity to be on tour with Cinderella and hung out at the bar after his set signing autographs and taking pictures with fans.
Cinderella hit the stage next and seemed more energized than ever. This would be the third time in the past year I’ve seen Cinderella and I think it was the best show yet. The show opened with “Once Around the Ride” and “Shake Me” and continued with all the hits and a few I don’t think I’ve heard before from them live. Tom Keifer was sounding better than ever, and the entire band seemed more energized. Keyboard player Gary Corbett also seemed to get much more attention than usual. He was out on the stage instead of hidden on the side and even got a little keyboard solo time at the end of “Second Wind”. Cinderella is one of the best bands from the 80’s still out on tour and after 25 years are sounding as great as ever. If you get a chance don’t miss out on this great rock n roll show.
