Jelusick added:

“I am beyond honored to be part of one of my favourite bands of all time. To get the phone call from David Coverdale is something every singer and musician of my generation can only dream of; it still feels completely surreal. I cannot wait to start hitting the road with Whitesnake and, as the great DC said to me himself, to give a piece of my identity to the sound of this iconic band.”

Whitesnake’s David Coverdale Plans To Retire From The Road Following 2022 Farewell Tour

Whitesnake’s David Coverdale has confirmed that he is planning to retire from the road. The frontman is hoping to do a farewell tour with the band next year.

Coverdale told Planet Rock the following while accepting the inaugural “Rocks Honours” award as part of The Rocks 2021 awards ceremony:

“I’ve been very passionate about what I do. I try not to let my audience down. We’ve got a really loyal hardcore fanbase around the world.

Last year, we were supposed to do what was gonna be my farewell tour, and it was sold out; it was amazing. Of course, everything was canceled due to COVID. So, God willing, I’ll be able to do it hopefully next year. I’m gonna show my appreciation and gratitude for the support that I’ve had, ’cause you can’t do it without an audience supporting you — it’s that simple. And they know — the hardcore [fans] who follow me know — I do my best, the best I can do at that time. And that’s been my work philosophy for as long as I can remember.”

He continued when it was mentioned that bands have a tendency of returning after “farewell” tours:

“Mine’s gonna be the farewell tour ’cause I’m knocking on 70. Are you kidding?! It’s hard enough now to get into my jeans.”

Despite his plans, Coverdale said he still intends to work on new music:

“I’ll be still involved in music. We’ve got a relatively long-term deal with Warners. We have a poopload of projects to do under the Whitesnake banner. It’s just the touring. It’s not the performing so much that is exhausting, it’s the touring, and I can’t tour any more comfortably than I do. So I spoke to my agent and said, ‘I wanna do this [farewell tour] more than anything. It’s after 50 years of incredible support for me.’ Not to be able to say thank you to the U.K., not to be able to say thank you to Germany, to Japan, Brazil, it would be heartbreaking.

I’m getting up there for this kind of stuff, and so it’s gonna have to be an easier tour schedule for me to be able to handle and recharge the batteries so I’m not hobbling around or doing wheelies in a chair.

I play guitar every day. The moment I start playing, I come up with ideas for songs. It’s impossible for me not to [play music]. It’s like my hobby. It’s something that I’m supposed to do; otherwise, I think I wouldn’t receive all these amazing ideas for melodies and naughty lyrics, including ‘Slide It In’, darling.”
