TOM KEIFER ROCKS THE BROOKLYN BOWL!The song goes “The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same.” CINDERELLA’S TOM KEIFER hit the stage with that as his opening song on July 12, 2018 at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, and never could have an opening song been more fitting for a spectacular show.
What has changed is the hair is much shorter, we are all a little older, and no longer is he with his CINDERELLA band-mates, but out with his solo project. What has stayed the same is the iconic voice behind one of the most unique bands to come out of the 1980’s hair-band scene.
What has always set CINDERELLA apart from others in the genre was the way they were able to fuse a solid blues sound into the hair-band scene they were so noted for. The credit for this undoubtedly goes to the multi-talented Tom, and never was that more on display than with his solo project that packed The Brooklyn Bowl.
For a perfect example of such talents, you need just listen to “Bad Seamstress Blues/Falling Apart at the Seams” to appreciate the blues intro right into the rockin’ riffs that is TOM KEIFER at his best.
Of course there were the fan favorite ballads of “Nobody’s Fool” and “Don’t Know What You Got, Till it’s Gone” mixed in with the top rocker hits like “Shake Me” and “Night Songs”. A night like tonight just takes us all back and reminds us just how incredible those first two CINDERELLA albums were.
As always, a big thank you goes out to the entire Brooklyn Bowl staff for being so hospitable and for bringing us TOM KEIFER!
