WHITESNAKE: New Tentative Release Date For Live DVD Announced

August 26, 2005

WHITESNAKE frontman David Coverdale held a "conference call" with various business partners on Monday (Aug. 22) to discuss the status of the group's first-ever concert DVD, "The Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues Show Live", which appears to have once again been delayed due to undisclosed "business issues."

Commented Coverdale in a posting on the group's web site: "I can't say I was leaping with joy with much of the news. I have been assured that the DVD production company believes they will be able to release the WHITESNAKE DVD on October 25, but, to be honest, I will believe it when I see it. On my return from South America, I will devote ALL my energy to rescuing it if the situation has not changed. So, as of now, you guys know as much as me. Do I feel like a victim? You bet. How does that feel? NOT GOOD! Am I pissed? YEP!! It does not suit me at all. So I am moving on. And as I promised you before, I will do everything I can to ensure it is released this year."

The DVD, which was shot last October at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, was supposed to be out at or near the start of WHITESNAKE's summer tour, which kicked off in late June. Unfortunately, the producer suffered a heart attack, which delayed work on the project.

WHITESNAKE will tour Latin America later this year with JUDAS PRIEST.
