Keys And Chords
NEWS / Here they go again. Whitesnake have announced that they will tour the world this summer. The confirmed list of dates — more are expected to be added — can be found below.
According to their website, they will begin what they’re calling a “Greatest Hits Tour” at the Riverwind Casino in Norman, Okla., on June 1. They will tour across North America over the course of the next month before winding up the first leg on July 2 at the Mohegan Sun Poconos Casino in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
From there, they will begin a European jaunt, starting at Villafranca Castle in Verona, Italy on July 14. Their schedule takes them across the continent — including a stop at the Kuopio Rock Cock Festival in Finland — until the weekend of Aug. 13-14, when they play the Alcatraz Festival in Courtrai, Belgium.
Last year, prior to the release of The Purple Album, in which they recorded songs from frontman David Coverdale‘s time in Deep Purple, Coverdale told Ultimate Classic Rock that he was thinking that this could be “a farewell to the big rock stuff […] I’m 64 in September, brother! You know, you can only tune ‘Still of the Night’ down so far. So I have to be able to do my thing and know it is working. I don’t want to be intimidated about going on stage.”
