WHITESNAKE Confirmed For New Zealand's ROCK2WGTN Festival

Legendary rock icon David Coverdale, the former lead singer with DEEP PURPLE, will bring his band WHITESNAKE to New Zealand for the first time when they perform at the upcoming Rock2Wgtn music festival, which is scheduled to take place March 22-23 at Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand. Also scheduled to appear are ALICE COOPER, OZZY OSBOURNE, KISS and LORDI.

WHITESNAKE will appear as a special guest appearance for an hour-long segment just prior to OZZY OSBOURNE on Sunday, March 23.

Classic Rock magazine reported in September that the new WHITESNAKE album, "Good to be Bad", will be released on May 13, 2008 via SPV. The CD was produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, AEROSMITH, COVERDALE/PAGE, METALLICA, etc.) and David Coverdale and features 14 songs (12 hard rock songs and two ballads), all of which were written by David Coverdale and guitarist Doug Aldrich. Other band members include Reb Beach (guitar), Tommy Aldridge (drums) and Uriah Duffy (bass).

WHITESNAKE's video for the new studio song "Ready to Rock" can be viewed below. The track is one of four previously unreleased cuts that appear on WHITESNAKE's new live record, entitled "Live… In the Shadow of the Blues", which was issued in Europe in November 2006 via Steamhammer/SPV Records.
