One minute we’re celebrating the news that hair metal legends Cinderella are playing Download’s main stage on 2010’s classic rock Sunday…

…and the next we hear the band’s management has ruled out any further UK dates this year.

Disappointed? We’re gutted.

There we were thinking Tom and the boys would take the opportunity of a trip to Blighty to roll out a few headline shows around Download – just as Tesla did last year.

But we thought wrong. So it looks like we’ll have to make do with a truncated Castle Donington set and our well worn copy of the patchy Live At The Mohegan Sun.
