Whitesnake have canceled their North American tour with the Scorpions due to singer David Coverdale’s health issues.
“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,” Coverdale said in a statement. “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,” added the founder of the hard rock band.
Despite Whitesnake pulling out of the North American tour, Scorpions will carry on with the tour, featuring support from the Swedish band Thundermother.
The trek will kick off on August 21 in Toronto, Canada, and wrap up two months later in Las Vegas, Nevada.
