“Once again it breaks my heart to be the bearer of even more sad news affecting Whitesnake’s touring schedule for this increasingly challenging year 2020,” Coverdale posted on social media. “All tours, Europe, U.K. and U.S., are being canceled owing to health issues, related specifically to a bilateral inguinal hernia requiring me to have surgery.”

Coverdale has not yet been able to schedule the procedure.  Likely due to concerns surrounding Covid-19, but says that singing is very painful for him.
