    Yeah, congrats! rock on, my heroes. Pity I’m living in Holland, Europe. However, I will follow all news and track every bit of images once the North America Tour is on its way. I listen to Whitesnake everyday, all albums! For every mood there is a song . Whitesnake makes my day!
    Love you guys, love your music and especially DC’s singing and stage presence (love his solo albums too). Wish you tons of fun the coming tour, touch the heart of your fans and let your fans touch your hearts.
