Whitesnake has ‘something special’ planned to coincide with the launch of the farewell tour

David Coverdale revealed that WHITESHAKE is planning “a very special project” to coincide with the band’s farewell tour which will begin in spring 2022. The WHITE SNAKE chef also said that there is little chance that John sykes appearing with the band, even on an ad hoc basis during the tour. Coverdale made the comments while speaking to Eonmusic about the band’s 25th anniversary edition that just released “Restless heart” album.

Talk to Eamon O’Neill on the farewell dates, which start in Dublin on May 10, 2022, Coverdale said: “We have this farewell tour, and when I say I’m retiring, I’m retiring from the tour at this level. It’s so huge and it takes months and months and months to get there. I was, in fact, hoping to retire at 69, which is absolutely the best age for the singer from WHITE SNAKE to resign. “

He continued, “I have to take this appreciation and gratitude tour to be able to complete it. I come to 50 years of people supporting my work; it’s just amazing, it’s a magical life and, like the song “Do not go far away” says, “Overall it’s been a bumpy road,” but we still have the passion to move forward. “

It was then that the old DARK PURPLE fronman revealed that he is planning to release something to accompany the tour. David said: “We have, next year, a very special project for the spring that I cannot speak of which is going to be a nice surprise for the people who will be accompanying the farewell world tour. When that was signed, sealed , delivered, we said, “I don’t think we can just put a box. This is my farewell tour. So we worked on a very special project to accompany the tour. It’s not a box, but it’s a great project. “

Somewhere else, Coverdale admitted that there is little chance to see John sykes on stage with WHITE SNAKE again. When asked if there was perhaps an unfinished business between the two, he replied, “Not for me. I admire John, I wish her luck in everything, but it was interesting that we managed to write together, so successful, but as people we weren’t successful. There was constant friction. “

Expanding, he shared that efforts to reunite the couple had been spent nearly two decades, but ultimately came to naught. “A mutual friend got us together, I think it was in 2002 or something,” he said, “and we talked and stuff for a long time and it was lovely, but the more I talked. with him I was like, “I feel the same way I did 30 years ago, and the last thing I want to do is engage and then call my Tokyo wife into him.” saying, “Why did I accept this?” ‘”

He added: “When we lost Jon Lord [DEEP PURPLE keyboardist], I contacted a lot of people including Ritchie [Blackmore], God bless him – to bury any potential ax, and I have tested the waters, and it has not been particularly well received, so what I can tell you is I wish good luck to everyone I worked with because they all brought something amazing to the party. “
