Whitesnake, formed by lead singer David Coverdale, was a UK-based rock group that gained popularity in the late 1970s. Drawing inspiration from bands like Thin Lizzy and Led Zeppelin, the band released several blues rock albums, including Lovehunter and Saints & Sinners.
Whitesnake broke up in 1987, and Coverdale took a break in 1990. After a successful 1994 album, the band reunited in 2003 for their 25th anniversary, performing in Europe, the U.S., and Japan. The reunion allowed Coverdale to enjoy his time on stage.
Whitesnake, who released their 2019 studio album Flesh & Blood, faced cancellations due to health issues. The band's farewell tour in Europe in May 2022 was canceled due to health issues, and North America's plans were also canceled due to health concerns. The band's re-releases of albums have been successful.
