Whitesnake Pulls Out Of Judas Priest Tour?

Whitesnake were forced to cut their set short last night after only four songs because singer David Coverdale is apparantly still not over a recent case of laryngitis. He gave a sincere apology to the crowd, stating "I'm sorry, I tried, I just can't do it."

Sources are now claiming that Whitesnake has pulled out of the tour with Judas Priest because of Coverdale's illness. Judas Priest and Pop Evil are expected to play longer sets to make up for Whitesnake's absence. Stay tuned for official word on the tour.

Too bad they didn't drop off a week early- they just played Orange County last week and I missed it! White Snake being there was half the reason I didn't go- the other half was that I did not have the money.
