David Coverdale and Whitesnake make their mark
Singer David Coverdale formed Whitesnake in Cleveland, England in 1978 after leaving his old band and their first few albums such as "Ready and Willing" (1980) and "Come an' Get It" (1981) found immediate appeal in the United Kingdom and Japan but personal commitments forced Coverdale to leave the band in 1982. A new line-up was introduced in 1984 and this is when Whitesnake would hit its stride as "Slide It In" their sixth studio album went platinum in the US featuring the single "Slow and Easy". Whitesnake along with Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and Deep Purple are other British heavy metal groups. 1987 would establish the highwater mark for Whitesnake as its self-titled follow-up album (rebranded as "1987" in Europe) reached number 2 on the American charts and number 8 in Britain behind two monster tracks: "Here I Go Again" and the rock ballad "Is This Love" and its multi-platinum certification made Whitesnake bona fide superstars across the world playing to hundreds of thousands during the subsequent world tour. Whitesnake tickets are available now for purchase or sale via StubHub.
Later years, memorable world tours and more
Personnel changes would not stop the band continuing to make the charts and even though the resounding success "Whitesnake" would not be replicated, the group found excellent reception in the US, UK and Japan for later albums such as "Slip of the Tongue" and "Restless Heart". To say that Whitesnake enjoys performing live could be considered an understatement as the group has hit the road for no less than 25 tours including the 25th Anniversary Tour of Japan in 2003 as well as the Live…in the Still of the Night European Tour 2004 and can also count 5 world swings among the number including the memorable Global Warming World Tour with Aerosmith that visited almost all the world's continents with 67 concert performances. To date they have recorded thirteen studio and nine live albums to go along with a handful of compilation sets of their complete discography and if you are one of the many Whitesnake faithful then you can expect to hear many of your favourites anytime the group appears live in concert.
