Whitesnake Announce Virtual Reunion in Honor of “Monsters of Rock” Anniversary
Whitesnake will celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Monsters of Rock with a reunion this Tuesday (Aug. 18).
The performance is in honor of the band’s 1990 Monsters of Rock festival performance at the U.K.’s Castle Donington by screening a video of the concert for free at the band’s official YouTube channel.
“I can’t wait to be reunited with Steve, Adrian, Rudy and Tommy, even if it’s just for this online moment,” says front man David Coverdale. “They were without a doubt one of the best, most explosive, exciting musical collectives I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing a global stage with…super people, super musicians…an absolute SUPERGROUP!!!”
Also on Tuesday, a 30th anniversary edition of the Live at Donington 1990 album, featuring a newly remastered recording of the concert, will be released digitally.
At 3:30 p.m. EST, a livestreamed on-camera Q&A session featuring all the members of Whitesnake’s 1990 lineup — singer Coverdale, guitarists Adrian Vandenberg and Steve Vai, bassist Rudy Sarzo and drummer Tommy Aldridge — will be held on YouTube and at the band’s Facebook page. This will mark the first time that the five musicians will all appear together since the end of the group’s Slip of the Tongue World Tour.
