Whitesnake tickets & concert schedule

Whitesnake’s history started in 1978, in Middlesbrough, north-east England, when the former member of Deep Purple, David Coverdale (vocals), created a new group from the members of his “David Coverdale Band”, that he had created at the beginning of his solo career. The first line-up, apart from himself, was consisted of Micky Moody (guitar), Bernie Marsden (guitar), Neil Murray (bass), Dave Dowle (drums) and Brian Johnston (keyboards), who was replaced by Peter Solley.

Whitesnake began establishing a harder and more commercial rock style from time to time. Their first release was the EP “Snakebite” and it was followed by the album “Trouble" in 1978. The next one, named “Lovehunter”, came out in May of 1979, with Jon Lord on keyboards. One more member from the Deep Purple, Ian Paice, took Dowle’s place and the group’s third album, “Ready an’ Willing”, entered the top 10 on the UK chart, making them also known in the USA. The hit “Fool for Your Loving” is one of Whitesnake’s signature songs in the hard rock scene.

Whitesnake performed as support to famous bands like AC/DC and Jethro Tull during their following tour. 1981's album “Come an’ Get It”, have reached the highest position to the UK Album Chart among Whitesnake’s albums, with the hit “Don't Break My Heart Again” to separate. After a small break, Whitesnake returned with the album “Saints & Sinners” in November of 1982, including the hit “Here I Go Again” that reached the top of the USA charts. During the recording of the band’s sixth album, there were some changes to the formation again, with John Sykes taking Moody’s place and the return of Neil Murray. “Slide It In” was released in 1984, containing the songs “Slow an’ Easy” and “Love Ain't No Stranger”.

The band recorded another two successful albums in the 80’s, the self-titled album in April of 1987 - Whitesnake’s most commercially successful album - and “Slip of the Tongue” in 1989. These two albums contained the hits “Crying in the Rain” (re-recorded version), “Still of the Night” (one of the band’s most famous songs), the timeless rock ballad “Is This Love”, and the second versions of “Here I Go Again” (it reached the top of the US charts again) and “Fool for Your Loving”.

The band’s line-up changed several times during the following years, while they toured next to great rock artists and bands such as Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Judas Priest and more. Whitesnake dissolved again in 1990 and they returned with a new formation, releasing the “Whitesnake’s Greatest Hits” album in 1994. After their 25th anniversary reformation in 2002, they recorded six more albums, three of them were live.

Whitesnake’s recent line-up consists of Coverdale, Tommy Aldridge (drums), Reb Beach (guitar), Michael Devin (bass), Joel Hoekstra (guitar) and Michele Lupi (keyboards), while the band’s upcoming album named “Flesh & Blood” is expected to come out in May of 2019.
