ATLANTA – Veteran rockers Whitesnake brought their classic rock to Cadence State Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park in Atlanta with the “Flesh and Blood” tour. The band is moving its way up the East Coast for several New York dates before heading off to Europe.
As soon as the band hit the stage fans went crazy and were in for an awesome rock show. Whitesnake’s set was a mix of classics and songs from their new album, Flesh and Blood.
The crowd was full of energy and sang along to every song they knew.
The band showed the legendary charisma, interacting with fans throughout their set from start to finish. Tommy Aldridge did an awesome drum solo midway through the show.
Whitesnake will release the new studio album Flesh and Blood via Frontiers Music Srl on May 10. The band just released its third single from the new album, called “Hey You (You Make Me Rock).” Flesh and Blood will be available on CD/LP/Digital formats.
Limited Edition Silver Vinyl (Limited to 300 copies WORLDWIDE) are available from Frontiers’ US webstore.
