Whitesnake have cancelled their entire touring schedule for 2020. The reason is completely unrelated to the COVID-19 outbreak as frontman David Coverdale has to own up to his personal health issues by having to undergo hernia surgery.
Read full statement below:
“Tour Cancellation Statement March 23rd 2020
Once again it breaks my heart to be the bearer of even more sad news affecting Whitesnake’s touring schedule for this increasingly challenging year, 2020.
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.
March 23rd 2020”
We hope Coverdale has a safe and healthy recovery.
