WHITESNAKE - Video Trailer Launched For The Purple Tour: A Photographic Journey Book

In 2015 Whitesnake took their newest release, The Purple Album, around the world on The Purple Tour. Featuring epic re-workings of David Coverdale's Deep Purple songs and a raft of Whitesnake classics, the tour was one of the bands most successful and talked about in years.

Now this new, official limited edition release from Rufus Publications documents that groundbreaking tour. At almost 300 pages long and packed with exclusive behind the scenes photos, notes from the band and a song by song breakdown of the tour's epic setlist, this incredible tour is captured and documented with hundreds of amazing shots, taken mostly on the sold out UK leg of the tour.

Available in two amazing versions, including a fully signed (by all the band) and numbered Signature Edition, the book ship in December 2017 and is only available to order online. Watch a trailer video below.

Appearing as very special guests on Foreigner's Juke Box Heroes tour whilst celebrating their 40th Anniversary are the legendary Whitesnake, who carry a rightful and righteous reputation as one of the world’s leading rock’n’roll bands.

Founded in 1978 by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, the band have earned multi-platinum albums including Trouble, Lovehunter, Ready And Willing, and Come An' Get It, through to the explosive hard rock of the revamped ‘Snake sound with the multi-platinum Slide It In, and celebrating its 30th anniversary, 1987’s self-titled mega-million-selling smash-hit album, Whitesnake. From these albums came multiple top 10 hits worldwide, including 2 number 1 singles with “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love” as well as the unforgettable hammer of “Still Of The Night” all leading to virtual 24-hour domination of MTV around the globe.

Bombast, bravado, talent and passion have helped establish Whitesnake as the perennial platinum favourite they have become and they’re back with a vengeance in 2018. The world-renowned group featuring David Coverdale (vocals), Reb Beach (guitar), Joel Hoekstra (guitar), Michael Devin (bass), Tommy Aldridge (drums) and Michele Luppi (Keys) are currently in the studio recording their as-yet-untitled 13th studio record.

David Coverdale: “We are truly excited & looking forward to playing in 2018 with Foreigner and my dear friend, the exceptional Jason Bonham, on their North American tour.”

Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 AM (local time) on Friday December 8th. But because you’re a rock star for being here, you can jump the line and purchase on Thursday at 10 AM using the code wh1t3snak32018
