Welcome to Whitesnake Dino Jelusick!!!

“I am absolutely delighted to welcome the extremely gifted DINO JELUSICK to Whitesnake.  We’ve had our eyes & ears on him since we played Zagreb together 2 years ago. You’re going to love him!”

– David Coverdale

Dino Jelusick is a singer/multi-instrumentalist from Croatia. He is a member of multi platinum selling band Trans-Siberian Orchestra and was previously part of Dirty Shirley (with George Lynch), Animal Drive and recorded with many others. Dino has been singing, touring and recording since the age of 5. Other than being a frontman, his main instrument are keyboards but he also plays bass, guitar and drums. He finished music academy and did theatre work.

Dino says he has been influenced by Whitesnake & David Coverdale from an early age.

“I am beyond honoured 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.”

    Great news about the U.K. tour. We have three great tickets for the 2020 Cardiff gig – will these be carried forward for the 2022 concert? We’re long time members of “the Choir” and would hate to miss a last chance to “make some f*cking noise”!

    WOW!!!! This is beyond greatness! I have loved Whitesnake for years, (The last band I saw live with Scorpions in Australia before Covid!), I discovered Dino’s talent about a year ago…… He gave me hope again that there will be some kick ass music in the future. Well done Dino! And Thank you to Whitesnake for years of ear candy and the new addition! 😁

    One of reasons Whitesnake continues to be an iconic driving force in rock is because David Coverdale makes good decisions. Bringing Dino in will most certainly put Whitesnake at yet another level . I am so thrilled to see this!! Bravo Mr. Coverdale!

    Dino could take over vocals when Coverdale decides to retire.

    Congratulations Dino.
    His multitalent has finally been recognised. Good luck!!
    I just wonder if you’ve changed his surname from Jelusic to Jelusick on purpose or by mistake?

    So…David is not going to be the singer on this tour anymore? There are going to be two singers? I don’t get it. Why am I having to ask these questions as well?

    Assuming this means Dino will help out with some vocals, background or perhaps lead on certain songs, on this tour and perhaps, with David being the smart businessman and already having stated his touring days are numbered, assuming the lead vocals role in the future so that Whitesnake can live on? If so, what a great move and the type of move that a band leader can make void of ego, preferring to see what he has built prevail and the legacy build. I hope this is the case.

Gracias por cuidar tan bien de la serpiente blanca. Llevo tanto tiempo diciendo a mis amigos que Dino Jelusick se merece una buena banda y un gran éxito que no podía ser otra banda mejor que Whitesnake para su voz y toca además de maravilla. Gran incorporación. Congratulations!!! 😘😘😘🇪🇦

    Thank you, Sisice. That was amazing! He was gorgeous and so talented! This is very exciting! Looks like Coverdale and crew might have quite a catch! I’ll have to check out more…still am curious what his role is now though…

    Dino has a great range and will be a good addition vocal -wise. Now that we have the additional singer, I hope we get the full spectrum of Whitesnake on the retirement tour from Purple, to early Snake, to Slip of the Tongue, and Restless Heart, and beyond. I’d love to hear Slip of the Tongue the actual song live again live from Whitesnake one last time now that there is Dino in the band ! And don’t forget we the fans love you ’til we’re Black and Blue … Oh Yeah …

  • John T

    8/3/2021

    I’d also like to hear Shake My Tree from Coverdale /Page – let’s do it in Whitesnake – I’d love to hear what Tommy Aldridge can do live with Coverdale/Page songs ! Hey it’s the retirement tour right ? Let’s hope it is a real long retirement tour ! LoL

    This is music to my ears. Excellent move by David to recruit Dino for Whitesnake. But… watch your back David, Dino is a force to be reckoned with, before you know it he’ll be singing lead vocals hahaha. All the best for the both of you, for now and in the future.
