Former Cinderella lead singer, Tom Keifer, brought his Live/Loud Tour to Goodyear Theater which featured his friends in Winger and John Corabi.

Corabi hit the stage first to warm up or in his words, "fluff up" the crowd.

Armed with just an acoustic guitar, Corabi played a nice six song set that featured songs from throughout his career.  "Love" from his band Union, "Dead and Gone" from The Dead Daisies and a surprise cover of "Daydream Believer" became a huge sing-a-long.  

"Hooligan's Holiday" from the very underrated Motley Crue album which he was the lead singer was a highlight of the set.  

Corabi did exactly what he set out to do.

Winger was next up.

The all original lineup are celebrating their 35th Anniversary and they still sound fantastic.

Kicking off their set was "Stick the Knife In And Twist" from their latest album, Seven.

Then it was back to the '80s with the one, two punch of "Seventeen" and "Can't Get Enough."

After playing another new song, "Proud Desperado," Kip Winger told the audience that they were seeing the all-original lineup along with guitarist John Roth.

He also remembered that he and Paul Taylor were both in Alice Cooper's band back in the '80s and they were both writing songs and dreaming of being in their own band.  Winger said that one of the first songs Taylor wrote became the bands biggest hit, "Miles Away."

Reb Beach got his time in the spotlight for a guitar solo before the band came back for a great version of "Headed for a Heartbreak."

Rod Morgenstein also got his chance to shine during a brief drum solo.

Their sixty minute set ended with "Easy Come Easy Go" and "Madalaine."

The Tom Keifer Band tore into their original song "Life Was Here" before breaking out some Cinderella classics, "Hot & Bothered" and "Heartbreak Station."

I have seen Tom Keifer several times over the years, and he has never sounded better!

He is a great front man, getting the audience involved with the show while also laying down some impressive slide guitar on songs like "Bad Seamstress Blues" or guitar solos.

The newer songs like "The Death of Me" and "Solid Ground" fit in nicely with the Cinderalla classics like "Somebody Save Me" and "Shake Me."

The main set came to a close with "Shelter Me."

Returning to encore with the power ballad, "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone), a great cover of "With A Little Help With My Friends" and the show closing "Gypsy Road."

Tom Keifer and the rest of the Live/Loud Tour brought a little '80s nostalgia to the Goodyear Theater, and that was a good thing. 

Because it was all live rock and roll.
