Holy Crap! Another one bites the dust! With our hairbands aging, more and more tours are being disrupted by ailments and injuries. The HOH has just received word that this time, it’s David Coverdale from Whitesnake who’s down for the count. Only 4 songs into a performance at the gorgeous Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, Coverdale announced to the crowd: “Listen, I sincerely sincerely apologize. I have no f***n’ voice left. I tried, I just can’t do it. I’m so sorry. It hurts when I do this.” .
Later an official statement from www.whitesnake.com read: “Unfortunately, last night at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver, Whitesnake had to cut their performance short due to Mr.Coverdale experiencing considerable pain in his vocal cords. 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 U.S. tour with Judas Priest. Whitesnake sincerely regrets any disappointment this may cause.”
