Coverdale said in a statement on Whitesnake’s official website, “It is with deep disappointment and a heavy heart that I have to announce that Whitesnake will no longer be able to join Scorpions on their US and Canadian tour due to my continued treatment for an ongoing upper respiratory infection affecting my ability to perform.”

He added, “This also includes the cancellation of our own headlining shows. While Whitesnake will no longer be touring, the Scorpions will continue. We wish our good friends The Scorpions every success!!!”
