Whitesnake postpone Japanese tour due to coronavirus

Whitesnake have postponed their upcoming tour of Japan “due to the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus.”

The two-week, eight-show series – scheduled to begin in Fukuoka on March 9 – is in support of their latest album, “Flesh & Blood.”

“Currently, we are working on rescheduling the dates,” says Whitesnake. “Your purchased tickets for the original dates will be valid for the rescheduled dates. Please ensure you keep your tickets safe. For those customers who wish to receive a refund, we will announce details of the refund process once we announce the rescheduled dates.

“We deeply apologize to all parties concerned especially those customers who bought tickets and have been looking forward to the Whitesnake shows.”

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

Whitesnake will launch a European trek in Warsaw, Poland on April 29 and team up with Sammy Hagar and The Circle in July for a three-month US tour.
