by VVN Music

Tom Keifer, the lead singer for Cinderella, had to cancel a show in Warrensdale, PA on Saturday (October 14) night after he collapsed before going on.

Keifer was taken to a local hospital where it was found that he was suffering from heat exhaustion and severe dehydration. He was expected to be released later on Sunday.

Tom's publicist released the following statement:

Tom Keifer was, regretfully, forced to postpone his performance in Warrendale, PA last night following his collapse prior to the show. Keifer 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.

Keifer's next date is Friday (October 20) at the Arkansas State Fair in Little Rock. He then has another week off before appearing in Denver.

Cinderella was formed in 1983 by Keifer and Eric Brittingham. Their first two albums, Night Songs (1986) and Long Cold Winter (1988) went to the top ten and three singles from the albums became hits, Nobody's Fool (1986 / #13), Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone) (1988 / #12) and Coming Home (1988 / #20).

Keifer released his debut solo album, The Way Life Goes, in 2013 and will release a deluxe version this Friday (October 20).
