Yesterday after coming back home from buying two speakers for my new hi-fi equipment (yesss!), I connected to the net, discovering the nice surprise that Cinderella will be back in Spain in June. Moreover, they’ll play in Barcelona the 10th, and it will be on Friday, yeah!!!
Last year, the band offered just one show in Madrid, and for me was sort of an odyssey to move my ass to the big city, for I was working and couldn’t ask for a day off. Flight with delays caused by rain, I just spent 9 hours in Barcelona, four of them getting some rest. OMFG, that trip was close to a nightmare! Nevertheless, and what matters most, it’s that Cinderella offered an amazing show, and it’s great we can live same experience again.
To be honest, I’m not crazy about hard rock style, I have my fetish bands I adore, probably the most established and acknowledged, such as Guns n’ Roses, Mötley Crüe or Skid Row, but apart from few bands, I’ve never been into deepening in the style, there’s much crap hidden there, although I’m probably missing something.
I like Cinderella, yeah! I really like them, for me there are two essential albums they gifted the world with: Heartbreak Station and Long Cold Winter
Easy listening, tending to classic blues, and evolving away from bands such as Poison or Ratt, Cinderella unfortunately always remained in second line, not being recognized enough. Still, here they are, touring and offering amazing shows, playing all the classics their fans get crazy about.
Give them a chance, forget all prejudice you might have (I was one of them, I tell you), and enjoy the evocative sounds which will take you to the roots of American music somehow.
To start with, here is one of my favorite songs, Shelter Me.
Hope you like it!
Before I forget, their tour dates in Spain:
