Decadent decades of reptilian fun

Whitesnake UKTour 2022 poster

Whitesnake Ireland/UK tour dates have been announced. The tour will commence in May 2022 with Foreigner and Europe on the same bill. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, July 30, 2021, from 9am. Presales, including VIP packages are already open, the password is farewell (the tour is touted as a farewell to Whitesnake). Further details in our calendar.

In other related news, David has also announced another member for his band. His name is Dino Jelusick, and he is a singer and multi-instrumentalist most recently seen touring with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It is not immediately clear what will his role be in the band, but seeing that they already have a full complement of players, our money is on singing parts that Mr. Coverdale can not (properly) do himself any more.

Thanks to Lutz Reinert for the heads up.

    And now DC hires another singer, what a loosy end for WS with second rate keyboards and bass and now a croatian singer to replace Coverdale, who didn’t sing much already… I’m sad

    Kinda related:

    The two Coverdales jointly and cutely slithering through a video for the coming Restless Heart 25th Anniv. reissue. Cindy probably said:

    “Now Tawny is gone, but I’m still here, you know I’ve been waitin’ for 24 years … and that Jag limousine has to disappear …” ***:


    *** Lyrical inspiration here at 2:25, there is no friggin’ rule in the world disallowing old DP fans to dig Smokie too, so there!!!

    My, that next WS tour is really gonna do the older material full vocal justice!



    Will now every ex-DP get his very own Ronnie Romero?

    All that said, let’s give credit where credit is due: DC could have just paid the guy well and stuck him behind a curtain (as Ozzy has done when he couldn’t cut it live), but instead he is frank about it, inviting mockery. I respect that. You know what you’re getting.

    @2 shame you’re sad – I’m ecstatic to see my favourite band since age 11 for one last time. If you don’t like Whitesnake vintage 2021 just don’t go or but their stuff. Win-Win. Peace (ps my classic Whitesnake will always be DC, Lord, Paice, Marsden, Moody & Murray)

    Coverdale probably makes more money on these package tours than playing in smaller venues with just Whitesnake as the main act, but it would have been nice to see a UK tour at 4000 capacity venues with longer sets than the package tours allow (another reason for him to lean towards playing with Foreigner and Europe because his voice probably can’t handle 90-100 mins anymore, which is a shame).

    With this new guy, I guess the rest of the band and David can just stay home lol. Happy birthday David!
