Whitesnake ‘Forevermore’ Tour Pictures
David Coverdale founded Whitesnake way back in 1978, and as you can see from these recent concert pictures, 33 years later the lion maned front man and his smooth, iconic voice are still front and center.
The band’s latest incarnation, featuring the dueling guitars of Reb Beach and Doug Aldrich, Brian Tichy on drums, Michael Devin on bass and Brian Ruedy on keys, released their latest effort ‘Forevermore’ on March 29 of this year.
While it’s impressive that Coverdale has carried on the Whitesnake name for over three decades, what’s most commendable is that the band continues to release new material. While many of their contemporaries choose to rest on their laurels and tour solely in support of albums released in another era, Whitesnake continue to release their special brand of blues-infused hard rock without getting completely stuck in the vortex of albums past.
On a late summer night (Aug. 21) at the Casino Ballroom in Hampton Beach, N.H. the sold-out crowd was quickly charmed by the ‘Snake. With a discography that pre-dated some of the fans in attendance, it’s got to be hard to pull together a set list for Whitesnake, but on their current US run, they seem to have done it with ease, mixing just enough of the new songs in with all the old staples.
Opening the show with ‘Best Years’ from their 2008 album ‘Good to Be Bad’ seemed like an odd choice, but as soon as the first notes of ‘Give Me All Your Love’ came bursting out of the speakers as the follow-up, it all seemed to make sense.
The set list flowed throughout the night from ‘Is This Love’ to ‘The Deeper The Love’ to arguably their biggest hits ‘Here I Go Again’ and encore ‘Still of the Night.’ Check out our exclusive photos from the show above.
