Whitesnake announce 2011 tour dates

Whitesnake singer David Coverdale has announced the band’s return to the stage with the initial series of dates on the 2011 Whitesnake World Tour.

Whitesnake will be introducing new Snakes, drummer Briian Tichy & bass player Michael Devin, alongside guitarists Doug Aldrich & Reb Beach.

The band will be touring in support of their as yet un-named new studio album on the Frontiers label, slated for release in late March of 2011.

“We’ve had an incredibly creative & productive year off writing & recording & also mixing several projects we plan to release over the next few years,” says Coverdale. “We’re particularly excited about the new album & we look forward to presenting a mix of new & more familiar songs when we tour. We have all missed the excitement of performing live & are very excited to introduce the new chaps to the Whitesnake Choir.”
