Scorpions & Thundermother forging ahead with US / Canada tour dates despite Whitesnake pulling out

Whitesnake and the Scorpions along with Thundermother were supposed to tour together in a blockbuster tour package across Canada and the United States of America starting on August 21, 2022. Unfortunately, Whitesnake have just announced that they are pulling out due to frontman David Coverdale‘s continued treatments to combat his upper respiratory infection.

The following message was posted in part on Whitesnake/David Coverdale‘s Facebook page earlier today:

“It is with profound disappointment and a heavy heart that I must announce that Whitesnake will no longer be able to join The Scorpions on their US and Canadian tour due to my continued treatment for a persistent upper respiratory infection that affects my ability to perform. This includes the cancellation of our own headlining shows as well.

While Whitesnake will no longer be on the tour, the Scorpions will be continuing on. We Wish Our Good Friends, The Scorpions Every Success!!!

We Wish You Well”

David Coverdale

The Scorpions intend to forge ahead with the tour with Thundermother as the opening act despite Whitesnake having to pull out as noted on the German rockers’ Facebook page earlier today:

“Attention Rock Believers!

We wanted to let you know that Whitesnake will no longer be joining us on our U.S. and Canadian Rock Believer tour. Nothing is more important than our fans and it was important to us that we keep the shows as scheduled. We wish Whitesnake all the best and look very much forward to seeing you and rocking with you all on tour along with Thundermother. For all dates & info visit
