Whitesnake's David Coverdale To Undergo Surgery

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery as David Coverdale needs to go under the knife.

The unfortunate news forces Whitesnake to officially call off their upcoming tour plans, already put on hold due to the Coronavirus crisis.

"All tours, Europe, UK and US, are being cancelled owing to health issues, related specifically to a bilateral inguinal hernia requiring me to have surgery," writes the frontman in a note tweeted on Monday.

Coverdale also apologizes to his bandmates and the crew, along with Foreigner, Europe and Sammy Hagar & The Circle who are still on the bill.
