Cinderella's Tom Keifer Hospitalized After 'Medical Emergency'

Former Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer was rushed to the hospital last night due to an as yet undisclosed medical emergency.

The singer was reportedly just about to perform a solo show in western Pennsylvania when the trouble began. “Tom Keifer was forced to postpone tonight’s performance in Warrendale, PA at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille due to a medical emergency,” reads an official statement from his publicist. “Keifer was transported to a local hospital where he is stable, and additional information will be released as soon as it’s available.”

Blabbermouth.net has a statement from the venue, which appears to have been since deleted from their social media pages, and unverified reports from fans claiming to have been at the show last night.

Keifer rose to fame in the mid-’80s as the guitarist, lead singer and principle songwriter for Cinderella. The group’s first three albums went platinum and spawned a series of hits including “Save Me,” “Gypsy Road” and “Don’t Know What You’ve Got (Till It’s Gone.)” The group has toured only sporadically in the years following their last studio album, 1994’s Still Climbing.

Keifer released his debut solo album, The Way Life Goes, in 2013. He is set to release an expanded edition of that record this coming Friday (Oct. 20). The new collection will add two new songs and a newly recorded piano-based version of the Cinderella track “Nobody’s Fool.”

We will update this story as word on Keifer’s condition becomes available.
