Whitesnake cancels European tour dates due to David Coverdale’s illness

Author Flavia Andrade - 30.6.2022

Whitesnake had to cancel three gigs of their ongoing European leg of the Farewell Tour MMXXII, due to David Coverdale’s diagnosis of a sinus and trachea infection. The cancelled performances would take place in Milan, Italy (June 29), Vienna, Austria (June 30) and Zagreb, Croatia (July 2).

Coverdale posted a statement on social media:

As stated earlier, I am still under doctor’s orders of bed rest, and to not sing for 5 days as i recover from this sinus infection. That time frame includes the show in Zagreb this Saturday, July 2nd so we are unfortunately going to have to cancel the Zagreb show as well.

This is obviously very sad for us, especially our band members that were getting to perform before hometown crowds; Michele Luppi, our Italian Stallion was looking forward to playing in Milan in front of his friends and family, and of course Dino Jelusic, the Pride of Croatia was going to be able to give his all, to his hometown of Zagreb.

We regret that this is necessary in our attempt to get healthy and be able to finish the rest of our tour.
