Whitesnake Cancel Shows Amid Various Health Issues

Whitesnake Cancel Shows Amid Various Health Issues

Whitesnake have canceled a couple of concerts that were scheduled for this week after members of the band were affected by various health problems.

In a lengthy statement, the band’s frontman David Coverdale said, “We have been rocking our way across the globe on the first part of our Farewell Tour giving all we’ve got to you, the fans. The rigors of the road are the same for all of us and we have been trying to keep everyone healthy and safe. Unfortunately we have been hit recently with a couple of situations that we have been dealing with, the best we can. First our beloved band leader Reb Beach went down temporarily and he missed a couple of shows while he mended (and is much better now, by the way).”

“Then the rock of our band, the Legendary Tommy Aldridge went down and we unfortunately were not able to play the Rock Imperium Festival in Cartagena this past Saturday (very regrettable and all apologies to our Spanish fans and friends). Tommy was bad enough at the time to have missed the first show ever in his career – The GOOD news is that he is feeling better and is anxious to get back out there to perform for all of you.”

“Unfortunately I have now been hit hard as well. I started feeling a bit under the weather two days ago, and was just diagnosed with an infection of the sinus & trachea. The doctor recommends 5 days of no singing and bed rest.”

“Sadly, that means that we are not going to be able to do the upcoming shows in Milan, Vienna and Zagreb,” he said, referring to the concerts in Milan, which was scheduled to be held on June 28, in Vienna, which was slated for June 30, and the third one scheduled for July 2 in Croatian capital Zagreb.
