The previously announced U.S. tour featuring CINDERELLA, WARRANT, LYNCH MOB and LYNAM has been cancelled. The official statement from CINDERELLA's manager, Tim Heyne of Union Entertainment Group, Inc., reads as follows:
"It's with unbelievably deep regret that I must announce that CINDERELLA's Tom Keifer's left vocal cord has hemorrhaged, thereby making it impossible for him to sing in the immediate future.
"Tom felt his throat give way last night (June 11) finishing the set in pre-production rehearsals, went to his vocal doctor (Dr. Stephen Mitchell) in Nashville this morning, and was told the grim news. In the short term, Tom's doctor told him it would be two to three weeks before the swelling and damage would recede to a point to where an assessment can be made as to whether surgery will be required.
"Consequently, and again, most regretfully, we have no choice but to postpone the upcoming CINDERELLA tour until such time as Tom is ready tour again."
Tickets will be refunded at points of purchase.
