Special Guest WHITESNAKE Cancels Remainder of Tour Due To Illness

  

“Unfortunately, Tuesday night at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver, Whitesnake had to cut their performance short due to Mr. Coverdale experiencing considerable pain in his vocal chords. He was immediately taken to a specialist for examination. The specialist discovered that David was suffering from severe vocal fold edema and a left vocal fold vascular lesion. He was instructed to cancel all performances for the next two weeks & then undergo a further examination. The doctors told us we were fortunate this was caught at a stage where no apparent permanent damage has been caused. We therefore regretfully have to announce that Whitesnake will not be appearing on the remainder of the US tour with Judas Priest, Whitesnake sincerely regrets any disappointment this may cause.”  

 

Judas Priest with special guest Pop Evil will perform as scheduled on Thursday, August 20 at 7:30pm. Tickets are still available at the venue box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, on-line at www.ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone 1-800-745-3000, and the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park Box Office.
