Virus bites the ‘snake

The ill-fated Whitesnake Japanese tour, that has already been rescheduled for March from October 2019, is now postponed until further notice due to “the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus”.

We regret to announce that WHITESNAKE’S Japan Tour which had been scheduled for March has been unavoidably postponed due to the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus.

Currently, we are working on rescheduling the dates. Your purchased tickets for the original dates will be valid for the rescheduled dates. Please ensure you keep your tickets safe. For those customers who wish to receive a refund, we will announce details of the refund process once we announce the rescheduled dates.

We deeply apologize to all parties concerned especially those customers who bought tickets and have been looking forward to the WHITESNAKE shows.

Japan is among the countries that are hit the hardest with the current outbreak of the virus, with 360 people infected and 7 dead (plus 706 infected and 6 dead on the Diamond Princess cruise liner docked in Yokohama) as of March 5, 2020.

    Tough news for the Japanese fans but common sense needs to prevail to keep everyone safe. All my fingers crossed for the UK tour though.

    A heartfelt message at a challenging time. I wish the media in general could be as positive as this when they broadcast about Coronavirus. It *is* a worry but Coverdale’s frankness and optimism here is refreshing.

    @ #4- I agree 100%.
    Unfortunately, misery is the mantra of the 24 hour news cycle we live in.
    Depressing, to say the least.

    I wonder if David can actually say the word “heart” without touching his chest? He used to!

    I agree mike whiteley. Fear is such a powerful currency under an establishment that wants people scared and controlled. Dark times indeed.

    The news would be far more hope inspiring if David Coverdale presented it.
