Whitesnake Tour 2008

Tour of the Year (Planet Rock)

Planet Rock Winner: Whitesnake & Def Leppard

Whitesnake and Def Leppard were reborn on this phenomenal double header tour. Both bands played each night as if to upstage the other, with the thought of being the better band on the night driving them onto performances that seemingly got better and better as the tour went on. Adding Black Stone Cherry and Thunder as support acts was just showing off.

This was an essential tour of 2008, and 25% of you agreed as it beat the high profile Queen & Paul Rodgers tour into second place.

Thank you for your support!!
Thank you guys!

Whitesnake Announces New Drummer - Chris Frazier

Chris Frazier

Whitesnake has issued the following update...
The new Whitesnake album, 'Good To Be Bad', scheduled for release in the spring of 2008 will be their 10th studio record and will feature the exceptional percussive talents of Chris Frazier, the latest member to grace the ranks of the band alongside Doug Aldrich on guitar, who also co-wrote and co-produced the album with David Coverdale and Michael McIntyre, Timothy Drury on keyboards, the terribly good-looking Uriah Duffy on horny bass, and Reb Beach on guitar. Chris takes over the drum chair from the ambidextrous Mr. Tommy Aldridge, drummer par excellence, who earlier in the year left to pursue alternate musical adventures. We all wish Ta well on his journey and take great delight in introducing to you a new and remarkable talent... So, without further adieu, please say hello to Chris Frazier?

Will Whitesnake tour the U.S. in 2008 ?
And will Seattle be on it.

[245] Jolanda .. Dec.26.2007 04:53 AM

Will WS tour in the Netherlands in 2008?

[246] Harumi-BRnet | Web .. Jan.03.2008 06:28 AM

Hi Brad and Jolanda,
Here is Mr. Coverdale\'s post on the WS.com BBS.
That\'s all I can give you for now.

on Dec-22-2007...
at this time we can confirm ( I believe )...we will likely start in New Zealand for a one off in March...We are exploring the possibility of nipping over to Australia for a pint & a show, or two...but, at tis time there is nothing positive to offer you...It looks very likely we will be having the distinct pleasure of returning to South & Central America in May, before starting our European run...( we have some absolutely splendid stuff planned...I can promise )...The US still manages to elude us, for whatever reason, but, as always, we don’t take no for an answer...so, we are still working toward something in my adopted homeland laqter in the year...In fact, we will try to go anywhere & everywhere we can to present our music to those who wnat to be bitten by the snake.

Hello my friend:
This is the second time I see the band. First time was at the Zenith in Muncih, Germany..suppoutr band was Bonfire. And after the show you and some other members of the band came out and signed me my ticket.
But this time, I was in charge to pick up David Coverdale from the airport.
The show was good, but it was a little empty.
Say hello to everybody from me.
Best wishes for you and family.

Good Morning:

My name is Sandy Ferri and I run a bi-monthly printed Music publication called, \"Higher Rock Music\" based here in CT.

We have featured such artists as Rikki Rockett of Poison, Mark Slaughter of Slaughetr, Jamie ST James of Warrant, JoDee Messina, Blue County, Billy Dean, CeCe Winans, Martha Munizzi, Kevin Jarido & NuVirtue, just to name a few.

We work with numerous Labels, Management, Publicity Companies & Publishers for possible reviews of their music or books in our publication.

Who would I need to speak with in regards to setting up an interview with Doug and receive a few of his releases for review as well for the publication? I have been trying to set this up and find the appropriate contact but am having no such luck, hope you can direct me.

I appreciate all your help with this request.
