Alcatraz Line up: 2016
Mega platinum Whitesnake, the legendary rock’n’roll band founded and formed by Deep Purple singer David Coverdale are proud to announce their 2016 “THE GREATEST HITS TOUR” which will feature their biggest hits & songs from ‘Slide It In’, ‘Whitesnake’ (1987) & ‘Slip Of The Tongue’. Blowing audiences away with their stunning, energetic live performances, Whitesnake have just completed a comprehensive world tour in 2015, including a Sell Out Arena tour in the UK & Ireland with Def Leppard, whilst promoting their most recent studio offering, ‘The Purple Album’. After leaving Deep Purple in 1976 Coverdale formed the original Whitesnake in 1978, and began a journey that has taken him from the early heavy blues rock of the late ‘70s with albums like ‘Trouble’, ‘Lovehunter’, ‘Ready And Willing’ & ‘Come An’ Get It’ through to the explosive hard rock of the revamped ‘Snake sound with the multi-platinum ‘Slide It In’ & 1987’s self-titled mega-million-selling smash-hit album, ‘Whitesnake’.
