Scorpion’ latest album, Rock Believer, was released on February 25th.
Last July, Whitesnake announced that it had enlisted Croatian singer/multi-instrumentalist Dino Jelusick for its upcoming tour. Jelusick is a member of multi-platinum selling band Trans-Siberian Orchestra and was previously part of Dirty Shirley (with George Lynch), Animal Drive and recorded with many others. The 29-year-old Dino has been singing, touring and recording since the age of five. Other than being a vocalist, his main instrument are keyboards but he also plays bass, guitar and drums. He finished music academy and did theater work.
Whitesnake had been touring in support of its latest album, Flesh & Blood, which was released in May 2019 through Frontiers Music Srl.
Instead of lipsyncing Coverdale hired jelusic for his absolutely incredible voice! this guy will be singing with David covering all the stuff Coverdale can’t sing anymore and he will kill it! Whitesnake opening ??? Weird …. IMO it should be a co- headline show , scorpions sounded a little tired and Klaus even though he still sounds like himself most of the time is having some real age related issues ~
Cool! One of the tour dates is in my city. Scorpions are one of my favorite bands, and ageless wonders. They’re definitely another snub that deserve to be the the RRHOF. Unfortunately, the last time I saw Whitesnake, Dave Coverdale’s voice was god awful – and that was 7 years ago!
i watched a few vids of last nights show in dublin , they were tuned as low as possible drop d..try drop f… lol
coverdale didnt sound horrible but his voice has dropped off quite a bit , jelusick sang on the chorus’s and sounded great but he is being under used for sure he should be ghost singing along with coverdale
i have seen whitesnake when coverdale could still sing great , i wouldnt pay to see this tour as it is now –
The question is, will this be a real farewell tour as another unnamed, 70’s makeup wearing band claimed more than 20 years ago…….?
