Whitesnake have announced a Greatest Hits tour for the summertime.

It will begin on June 1st and will encompass dates in the U.S. and Europe. See the tour schedule below.

The group’s last release was 2015’s The Purple Album. It was designed as a tribute to frontman David Coverdale’s former band Deep Purple, who are to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April.

It was also meant to be the singer’s last work, but he admitted last year that it gave him a new lease of life.

He’d said, “It’s just revitalised me. I thought, ‘This is probably it’ – but I had an incredibly good time on tour. Everybody contributed to this project in the most positive way. It just makes it more inspiring to look at the future for new stuff with these guys. I have no desire to hang up my rock n’roll sneakers just yet.”

    Pollstar also reported this but is sounded like DC was hinting this would be his last tour. Did he run this by Eddie first?

    I’ve always liked their brand of heavy blues rock, and I’m glad they got Tommy Aldridge back on drums.
    I know he’s good, but I’m still not sure Joel will be as good a fit a Doug Aldrich both as a song writer and a guitarist.

    Greatest hits tour? That’s a new one.What about the purple album?

  • Harold Taint on

    This was a good band initially, the Mickey Moody/Bernie Marsden version of the band was the best. I tip my cap to Sykes of course, but they were best in the beginning. They turned into a pop metal band in the end.

    For good early Whitesnake, I put my money on Trouble. Trouble is a killer album.

    Saw the Snakes this past summer, and the infusion of Reb Beach cannot be denied. This dude is a fantastic guitar player and behind the scenes, I suspect the primary reason these guys are getting their second wind.
