Whitesnake Cancel UK, European And US Tour Dates Due To Health Issues

Monday, 23 March 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Whitesnake have cancelled their entire 2020 Flesh And Blood World Tour.

Vocalist David Coverdale broke the news via a social media post revealing that he requires surgery for a bilateral inguinal hernia. Read the singer's statement below.

The legendary rock band were set to return to the UK and Europe alongside Foreigner and special guests Europe. They were also due to participate in a summer North American tour with Sammy Hagar and Night Ranger. The latter trek is going ahead as planned without them. 

"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.

All tours, Europe, UK and 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."

The band were recently forced to postpone their shows in Japan due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
