Whitesnake, Foreigner and Europe Announce Joint UK and Ireland 2022 Tour

6th August 2021 | Category: Concerts

Three rock veterans have teamed up for a joint tour of the UK and Ireland next year, with Whitesnake and Foreigner co-headlining alongside special guests Europe.

“I pray every day we can all make this happen and once again, share unforgettable evenings together and celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for almost 50 years!” said Whitesnake’s David Coverdale.

Mick Jones of Foreigner added: “We can’t wait to kick off the summer in the UK and Ireland with a massive tour alongside our friends Whitesnake and Europe. We’re looking forward to playing all our biggest hits for our fans, and rocking across the country.”

Europe’s Joey Tempest described the shows as “An evening of some of the biggest anthems in classic rock! We are truly honoured to be invited as special guests.”

The three bands were initially due to tour together in summer 2020, however the shows were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Whitesnake released their most recent album ‘Flesh And Blood’ in 2019, while Europe’s ‘Walk The Earth’ came out in 2017. Foreigner have not released new music since 2009’s ‘Can’t Slow Me Down’.

As Whitesnake prepare to embark on their farewell tour, David Coverdale has announced that the band has now welcomed singer Dino Jelusick to the band’s live lineup.

Jelusick, who is 29 years old, first gained notoriety as the winner of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Denmark in 2003. The singer and multi-instrumentalist has since released multiple solo albums and is the current singer and keyboardist in Dirty Shirley (which also features guitar icon George Lynch). He has also been a member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra since 2016.
