Whitesnake announce they will take time out from touring in 2012
It will be a bittersweet year for fans of Whitesnake who missed out on last year's 'Forevermore World Tour' as the band announce they will be on hiatus throughout 2012.
However, after the success of their mammoth trek, which went to thirty-five countries, the band now plan to spend the rest of the year in the studio mixing live recordings made during their 2011 tour. There are also plans to release a live in-concert DVD of the tour with a number of 'Snake related projects in the pipeline.
So fans may not get a chance to see their hard-rock idols performing live in the flesh this year, but there will be plenty to keep you occupied until their next outing.
A band update reads as follows (via BraveWords):
'At this time the band plan to spend 2012 in the studio, mixing live recordings made during the 2011 tour. There are also plans to edit and mix a live in-concert DVD from the tour. Other 'Snake related projects are also in the works, including new material, though there are no definite plans to record a full studio album at this time. Some of the band members will be keeping busy with other musical projects throughout 2012 and whitesnake.com will try to provide information related to their activities, as well as the individual member's websites. The commercial and critical success continues with their Forevermore album which is still gathering accolades and awards from around the world.'
