Its a tribute. A homage. Its a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago, states Coverdale.

The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We cant wait to play these songs in concert!

“Live at Donington 1990″ CD and DVD

On August 18th, 1990 Whitesnake headlined at the premier UK festival, the legendary Monsters Of Rock at Castle Donington, now known as Download.

The Monsters of Rock festival was one of the most memorable events on an unforgettable world tour that saw the band play to over one million people around the on the Liquor & Poker World Tour.

An incendiary musical chapter of the band that featured Steve Vai & Adrian Vandenberg on guitars, bassist Rudy Sarzo, drummer Tommy Aldridge & singer David Coverdale; a high octane performance, firing on all cylinders…and Whitesnake in all its fiery musical splendour.

Every effort has been made to bring the very best out of what is an incredible, never before seen, visual treat capturing one of the most musically intense line-ups of Whitesnake performing in front of over 70,000 people. Mixed in glorious 5.1 & living, breathing stereo!

Now, over 20 years later, you can experience being in the middle of the crowd for the complete sensory experience. And even if you were actually there, you can now relive the event & let the memories of that time coming flooding back.

This is a raw, emotional, arse-kicking, head-banging show, that allows even the most discerning fan to relive the magic of that hot summer night over 20 years ago. The DVD also includes a substantial gallery of never before published photographs of the band on the Liquor & Poker World Tour 1990 plus an intimate Behind The Scenes documentary of the creative journey of the Slip Of The Tongue album, beginning with Adrian & David composing the songs, the band working on the arrangements in pre-production rehearsals at Lake Tahoe, the actual recording sessions in Reno & Los Angeles, behind the cameras at a video shoot and all the way to the end of the tour itself, culminating in the final show in Japans fabled Budokan in Tokyo plus all never before seen footage from David Coverdales private home video collection!

FOREVERMORE finds founder/singer/songwriter David Coverdale and company returning to their no-holds-barred, bluesiest, sexiest rock n’ roll roots. This will be Whitesnake’s 11th album and the first release via Frontiers Records. FOREVERMORE was recorded, produced and mixed by Los Bros Brutalos (Coverdale, Doug Aldrich and Michael McIntyre). Whitesnake is David Coverdale (vocals), Doug Aldrich (guitars), Reb Beach (guitars), Michael Devin (bass) and Briian Tichy (drums).

Formed in 1977, and steered by the legendary David Coverdale, Whitesnake carry a rightful reputation as one of the world’s leading rock n’ roll bands. Coverdale’s blues roots, combined with a feral sense of rockin’ and rollin’, have consistently shaped the ‘Snake’s sound along with Coverdale’s love and appreciation of impeccable musicianship. Whitesnake’s ascent to the very top of the rock n’ roll heap was confirmed with 1987’s self-titled mega-platinum album, which saw two massive Top 10 hits, two #1 singles with “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love” and a virtual 24-hour domination of MTV around the world.
