Artist Info: Mega platinum WHITESNAKE, the legendary rock ’n’ roll band founded and formed by DEEP PURPLE singer David Coverdale are proud to announce their only headline shows of 2018 which will feature their biggest hits & songs from one of the greatest back catalogues in rock ‘n’ roll history spanning 40 years.
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’ & having just celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017, 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.
Back in the late 80s and early 90s, Kelly Keagy, Mark Slaughter, Eric Martin, and the brothers Nelson were all fronting their own hugely-successful rock acts – Night Ranger, Slaughter, Mr. Big and Nelson. You may recall a few of their mega hits that are still in regular rotation on most rock radio stations – “Sister Christian,” “Fly to the Angels,” “To Be With You” and “After the Rain,” just to name a few. Well, the decade may have changed, but the music hasn’t, they are just bringing it to us a little differently these days.Scrap Metal is the ‘rock and roll rat pack,’ a confederacy of multi-platinum artists from the 80s Arena-Rock generation, who took over MTV and held the airwaves hostage for a decade. These ‘scraps” from all the various top bands create a surprising mix. Scrap Metal was created by GUNNAR NELSON, who with twin brother MATTHEW NELSON was half of the hit 90s group NELSON, and MARK SLAUGHTER of 80s rock group SLAUGHTER. KELLY KEAGY from NIGHT RANGER helps to round out SCRAP METAL’s core group, along with ERIC MARTIN of MR. BIG who brings his trademark powerhouse pipes to the band.
This is an all-ages show; those under 21 must be accompanied by an adult
