It wasn’t exactly youth gone wild, but a sold-out, mostly middle-age crowd did revisit its younger, bigger-hair, tighter-pants glory days courtesy of glam metal poster boys Cinderella and Sebastian Bach on Monday night at Oneida Casino.
Based on sweat alone, Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer, whose band battled sound production issues most of the night, worked it tirelessly onstage — often with double-neck guitar in hand — for a 75-minute set that took fans through one of the genre’s more respectable catalogs of the era, from bluesy ballads “Coming Home’’ and “Heartbreak Station’’ to the down-and-dirtiest rock moment of the night on “Nobody’s Fool.’’
But when it came to getting the room to flash the devil horns in mass and looking as if he was still having as much fun as he was 20 years ago, it was opener Bach who was the indisputable life of the party. The 44-year-old former Skid Row showman, still a master of the rock-star pose and naughty-boy grin, proved his vocals were as in shape as the rest of him as he unleashed “Monkey Business,’’ “Youth Gone Wild’’ and “18 and Life’’ on a crowd primed to play along.
“Wisconsin, is it the cheese? How come you kick so much (expletive) a–?’’ Bach said. Obviously humored by the cheesehead factor, it’s a theme he revisited throughout his hour-long set, even tossing in a parody of Dokken’s “Dream Warriors’’ — “Cheese Warriors.’’
