Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale has revealed he is ‘thrilled beyond words’ to get back on the road with long-term buddies Foreigner and Europe next summer.

The multi-million selling rockers headline an eye-catching triple bill set to take in six UK arenas in 2020.

“I’m thrilled beyond words we can finally come see you all in the UK,” said Coverdale.

“It’s going to be one helluva night together with our friends Foreigner and Europe!

“I can’t wait! See you soon!”

The tour opens at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday May 31 and calls in at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena, Birmingham Arena, Glasgow SSE Hydro, Newcastle Utilita Arena and Manchester Arena in the first week of June. 

Foreigner’s Mick Jones, fresh from a Ramblin’ Man Fair headline slot earlier this year, added: “We can’t wait to kick off the summer in the UK 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 added: “What an explosive start to the summer of 2020 for us! 

“A UK Arena tour with our friends in Whitesnake and Foreigner – yeah! 

“It will be an evening of some of the biggest anthems in classic rock! We are truly honoured to be invited as special guests.”
