On August 5th, Whitesnake frontman Coverdale released the following statement:
“It is with profound disappointment and a heavy heart that I must announce that Whitesnake will no longer be able to join the Scorpions on their US and Canadian tour due to my continued treatment for a persistent upper respiratory infection that affects my ability to perform. This includes the cancellation of our own headlining shows, as well.
While Whitesnake will no longer be on the tour, the Scorpions will be continuing on. We Wish Our Good Friends, the Scorpions Every Success!!!
We Wish You Well.”
Scorpions issued a separate statement stating “We wanted to let you know that Whitesnake will no longer be joining us on our U.S. and Canadian Rock Believer tour.
Nothing is more important than our fans and it was important to us that we keep the shows as scheduled.
We wish Whitesnake all the best and look very much forward to seeing you and rocking with you all on tour along with Thundermother.”
