Whitesnake Plotting North American Tour?

Published on January 30th, 2013


Hard rock heavyweights Whitesnake are once again embarking on a world tour in 2013 after more than a year-long absence from the stage. But for the British rockers, a tour of North America is never a sure bet.

To this point, the only officially announced legs of the tour take place in Europe and Asia.

There’s good reason for Whitesnake fans in the USA and Canada to be hopeful, however. This morning Pollstar.com listed a tour stop in Mattawa, Ontario on July 27 at the city’s summer festival.

As with Motley Crue earlier this month, even just one festival booking is a good indication of a full-fledged summer tour.

The David Coverdale-fronted group last toured the United States in 2011, including a tour stop at the ubiquitous M3 Rock Festival in Columbia, Maryland.

UPDATE: Lead singer David Coverdale confirms just as much to Live Rock Journal via Twitter:
