This stage was apparently not big enough to accommodate all of Cinderella's gear.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow -- that was the first part of the headline touting our highly scientific examination of why some hair-metal bands can still pack arenas while others are back to playing clubs. Turns out we were a bit remiss. Not only should our Headbanger's Guide to Remaining Relevant in the Modern Era post have been subtitled "Nair Today, Gone Tomorrow," but, evidently, in our lists of Do's and Don'ts, we should've also pointed out that, whenever possible, you should strive to not cancel your show on the day of the show, which is a surefire way to alienate fans. Kind of obvious, which is probably why we didn't see fit to include it...

A bird's-eye view of the Grizzly Rock's stage.

Cinderella, one of the bands that inspired that piece, was slated to perform at the Grizzly Rock in Lakewood this past Thursday. Upon arriving at the newly renovated venue, however, the group and their crew determined that the stage was just not big enough to accommodate their gear. And so, after purportedly seeking out other options -- scaling back the stage show, adjusting the stage or even moving the show to another venue -- the Philadelphia band evidently saw no other plausible option than to skip the show here and continue on with the rest of the tour.
