It’s not just the virus

David Coverdale announced today that all remaining Whitesnake tours for 2020 — the mainland Europe, the UK, and the double header with Sammy Hagar in the US — are now cancelled.

All tours, Europe, UK & US, are being cancelled owing to health issues, related specifically to a bilateral inguinal hernia requiring me to have surgery.

At this time, I can only offer You & my amazing musicians in Whitesnake & our crew my love & my sincere apologies & also my regrets to my friends in Foreigner, Europe & Sammy Hagar for this unforeseen personal health issue, which I will have addressed at the first possible opportunity.

Until then, I send my love to you & yours & hopefully we will meet again along the road.

David Coverdale
March 23rd 2020

Thanks to BraveWords and Lutz Reinert for the heads up.

    He sounds sad and guilty. But health, safety and general wellbeing matters more than anything. In these weird times and generally.

    Wishing him a speedy and comfortable recovery.

    Fast recovery so you can reschedule those shows in the UK, whenever you re ready after your op in a couple of years say. And hopefully you llreschedule to the Motorpoint Arena as one of the UK gigs with the same line up of Foreigner andEurope. But for now just concentrate on having your op and getting a good recovery after good recovery after your op and see you back on the road in a couple of years David.
