As previously reported, Whitesnake's appearance at the Download Festival on June 14th with DEF LEPPARD will coincide with action-packed Anniversary releases of the multi-platinum albums, Slip Of The Tongue, marking its 20th anniversary, and the Slide It In album, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
It is understood there is also a Special Edition of their award winning, 2008 album, Good To Be Bad, featuring bonus tracks, being released around the same time.
Whitesnake singer, DAVID COVERDALE, said that in these uncertain times, when it is economically difficult for some people to get to see rock shows in their major cities, then it is the responsibility of the artist to take their music to the people, and that's what Whitesnake intends to do, before undertaking a major North American tour in Summer.
Whitesnake's June 14th show at the Download Festival will mark the fourth time the band has performed at Donington Park: 1981, 1983, 1990 and now 2009.
