We are saddened to announce that the Whitesnake concert, schedule for September 9th at Elmwood Park, has been cancelled. This was to be the last concert of the Bud Light Vinyl Vault series this summer. Lead singer, David Coverdale, issued this statement:
“It is with profound disappointment and a heavy heart that I must announce that Whitesnake will no longer be able to join The Scorpions on their US and Canadian tour due to my continued treatment for a persistent upper respiratory infection that affects my ability to perform. This includes the cancellation of our own headlining shows as well.
While Whitesnake will no longer be on the tour, the Scorpions will be continuing on. We Wish Our Good Friends, The Scorpions, Every Success!!!
We Wish You Well”
Tickets to the concert will be refunded at the point of purchase. Thank you for supporting the Bud Light Vinyl Vault concert series.
