WHITESNAKE CANCEL REMAINING DATES WITH JUDAS PRIEST
August 13, 2009
Unfortunately, last night at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver, Whitesnake had to cut their performance short due to David 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 and 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.
Below is video of David Coverdale apologizing to the Denver fans.
