Whitesnake’s Live at Donington 1990 DVD/live double CD set will now be available on June 3 in Europe and June 7 in North America via Frontiers Records.

On August 18, 1990, Whitesnake headlined the legendary Monsters Of Rock at Castle Donington festival (now known as Download). Whitesnake’s performance at the festival was one of the most memorable events on the “Liquor & Poker World Tour” that saw the band play sold-out shows to over one million people. The footage captures Whitesnake performing in front of more than 70,000 people. Whitesnake in 1990 featured guitarists Steve Vai and Adrian Vandenberg, bassist Rudy Sarzo, drummer Tommy Aldridge and, of course, David Coverdale.

The Live At Donington 1990 DVD also includes a gallery of never before seen stills of the band on the Liquor & Poker World Tour 1990, plus behind-the-scenes documentary of the making-of the Slip Of The Tongue album.

The Live At Donington 1990 will be available in 2CD set, DVD coverpack, combo 2CD + DVD in digipak and digital edition.

    Fantastic!!!!!!

    Something that would nice to see from Purple too. Vintage Concert DVDs. Looks like Hughes and Coverdale are ramping it up in the possible wake of a Purple demise……

    Cheers

    Putting out a live album at about the same time as a studio CD takes a certain amount of gumption and confidence.

    I know the recordings from bootlegs – as many here I`m sure – and they are quite entertaining mainly for DC`s swearing and the crowds reaction to the show. His voice had already become a bit screechy by then and the band was a bunch of well paid soldiers that lend their talents to the man. Come Ain`t no love-time…well in case you had not noticed until then you have to realise that the last ounce of feeling had gone. I have seen the same show in Mannheim just within the same week back then and it was just one impressive circus act in my book.

    I saw them in Utrecht, around the same time.
    Monsters Of Rock Festival @ De GalgenwaardStadium, that is.

    Unfortunately AEROSMITH impressed me much more that day.

    Saw bits and pieces on tv from the Donnington show and then, IMHO, it sounded pretty awful.

    Why was 1983 released in a heartbeat on VHS and did this show has to take so long?
    Very glad then because he was in great form.

    Rights?
    Or did Old Cov spend all time polishing the results?

    Fantastic album…excellent vocal performance by Coverdale…but this cover, as the ‘forevermore’ one really sucks…

    Bo says:

    Fine, but I want the real Whitesnake Donnington show. With Lord, Powel etc from the days when Coverdale could sing. But that is LONG time ago. I’m sad to say 🙁

    Roberto says:

    yes the first donigton with Lord and Cozy is impressive…for the “second” whitesnake version I would have preferred the 1988 japan dates (bootlegs with great sound quality exist) with Coverdale even in a better shape than this one…
