In incredibly disappointing news, Whitesnake is canceling their upcoming tour dates with The Scorpions on a tour of the US and Canada. David Coverdale and the band made the announcement on their website earlier today.

It is with profound disappointment and a heavy heart that I must announce that Whitesnake will no longer be able to join The Scorpions on their US and Canadian tour due to my continued treatment for a persistent upper respiratory infection that affects my ability to perform. This includes the cancellation of our own headlining shows as well.

While Whitesnake will no longer be on the tour, the Scorpions will be continuing on. We Wish Our Good Friends, The Scorpions Every Success!!!

We Wish You Well

David Coverdale

I for one was looking forward to the dates with Whitesnake and The Scorpions, but if David Coverdale isn’t able to perform, there is no Whitesnake without him. Here’s to hoping that he makes a speedy recovery and that Whitesnake can get back on the road.

There is no word on who The Scorpions will get to replace Whitesnake on the tour.
