Whitesnake’s frontman, David Coverdale, is sharing an update of his health’s condition in a recent social media post.
Coverdale tweeted on September 8, writing, “Finally!!! I was able to have hernia surgery!!! A 1,000 thanks to ALL the caring, loving & incredible professionals at Renown for taking such good care of me… & to YOU, my Beauties…have a blessed day/night Wherever You Are, Know You Are Loved. Stay Safe & Well!!!”
The 68-year-old frontman was in need of surgery, resulting in the cancellation of all of Whitesnake’s 2020 dates since March. This affected the band’s supposed scheduled spring series across Europe, a UK stint with Foreigner for June, and a US summer run with Sammy Hagar And The Circle, and Night Ranger.
Whitesnake was planning to do a tour in support of 2019’s Flesh & Blood, which reached top 10 status in several European countries upon release.
The band released a new collection named The Rock Album in June, which is comprised of songs from Whitesnake’s three decades worth of material from releases running from 1984 to 2011 in six studio albums. These include “Still Of The Night”, “Love Ain’t No Stranger”, and the 1987 classic version of “Here I Go Again.”
