WHITESNAKE frontman David Coverdale has confirmed that the band’s current tour will be their last, however he says the heritage act could continue in the studio and even with a new singer.
Coverdale recently sat down with Mitch Lafon on The Jeremy White Show, where he spoke about WHITESNAKE possibly continuing as a studio project.
He said: “It’s not the performing that’s challenging for me. It’s the traveling. And I couldn’t travel any nicer, but it’s still very tiring on me. I’m working out like a motherf—er, so I have the energy. I’m energized by my band and the appreciative audiences. I think it’s going to be extraordinarily emotional at a lot of these shows. Because a lot of people have supported my work for 40, 50 years.
“But it’s just me saying goodbye to touring at that level. It’s an immense production putting a tour together. I have so many other Whitesnake projects I wanna do.
“It’s just going to be David Coverdale stepping down. There’s a possibility we can do something, that Whitesnake does continue to do something. But, other than in the studio, I won’t be participating.”
