David Coverdale has been dealing with issues lately and that’s caused the cancellation of a couple of shows on Whitesnake’s Farewell Tour this week.
Coverdale said a statement, "The rigors of the road are the same for all of us and we have been trying to keep everyone healthy and safe. Unfortunately we have been hit recently with a couple of situations that we have been dealing with, the best we can..”
He added, "First our beloved band leader (guitarist) Reb Beach went down temporarily and he missed a couple of shows while he mended (and is much better now, by the way). Then the rock of our band, the legendary (drummer) Tommy Aldridge went down and we unfortunately were not able to play the Rock Imperium Festival in Spain this past Saturday (very regrettable and all apologies to our Spanish fans and friends).”
Coverdale also said, "Unfortunately I have now been hit hard as well. I started feeling a bit under the weather two days ago, and was just diagnosed with an infection of the sinus and trachea. The doctor recommends five days of no singing and bed rest...”
He wrapped up by saying, "I'm very sorry to all the fans who had planned to come see our Farewell Tour in each of those cities – it's my intention to get better as soon as possible and be able to pick up with the remaining shows of the European Farewell Tour. You are all in our hearts!!"
The tour is scheduled to resume on July 4th in Budapest, Hungary.
