WHITESNAKE's appearance at Download will coincide with action-packed re-releases of the multi-platinum albums "Slip Of The Tongue", marking its 20th anniversary, and "Slide It In", which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. A special edition of the band's 2008 album "Good To Be Bad", featuring bonus tracks, will be released around the same time.

WHITESNAKE singer David Coverdale said that in these uncertain times, when it is economically difficult for some people to get to see rock shows in their major cities, then it is the responsibility of the artist to take their music to the people, and that's what WHITESNAKE intends to do before undertaking a major North American tour in summer.

WHITESNAKE's June 14 show at Download will mark the fourth time the band has performed at Donington Park (previous appearances took place in 1981, 1983 and 1990).
