Whitesnake cancel 2020 tour ahead of David Coverdale surgery

Whitesnake have cancelled their 2020 “Flesh & Blood” touring plans as David Coverdale prepares to undergo hernia surgery.

The news affects the band’s planned spring series across Europe, a UK run with Foreigner in June, and a US summer trek with Sammy Hagar And The Circle and Night Ranger.

“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,” explains Coverdale in a new video. “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 and my amazing musicians in Whitesnake and our crew my love and my sincere apologies, and also my regrets to my friends in Foreigner, Europe and 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 and yours, and hopefully we will meet again along the road.”

Whitesnake’s thirteenth studio set, “Flesh & Blood” was a top 10 album in several European countries upon its release last spring.
