Tom Keifer is expected to be released from hospital later today — one day after he was forced to cancel his concert due to a medical emergency.
The CINDERELLA frontman was scheduled to perform at Jergel’s in Warrendale, Pennsylvania Saturday night (October 14) when he was taken ill.
Keifer‘s publicist, Amanda Cagan of ABC Public Relations, told BLABBERMOUTH.NET that Tom “collapsed” prior to last night’s show and “was transported to a local hospital where he underwent tests and was kept overnight. Doctors confirm that Keifer is in stable condition and believe the episode points to heat exhaustion and severe dehydration. Keifer was given fluids, is resting comfortably, and is expected to be released later today. He plans to return to his performance schedule later in the week.”
Tom is on the road promoting an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, “The Way Life Goes”, which will be made available on October 20 via Cleopatra Records.
Although CINDERELLA hasn’t released a new studio album since 1994’s “Still Climbing”, the band started playing sporadic shows again in 2010 but has been largely inactive for the last few years while Keifer focuses on his solo career.
