On Tuesday, May 10, Whitesnake have kicked off their farewell tour, doing their first show of 2022. The concert took place in Dublin, Ireland over at city’s 3Arena. Aside from being their first show of the year and the first one of the band’s farewell tour, Whitesnake was also supported by Europe and Foreigner.
And not only that – this marks the first show with the band’s new lineup, featuring Tanya O’Callaghan on bass guitar and Dino Jelusick doing keyboard, guitar, and backing vocal duties. You can check out some of the live videos below.
But while we’re at it, plenty of fans online have commented on Dino covering too much for David Coverdale. This comes in addition to comments that expressed dissatisfaction with Coverdale’s vocal performances.
These comments come from fan-filmed videos from the show. In addition, there have been some social media comments. You can check out some of them below.
In other news, Tanya O’Callaghan also shared her thoughts on her first-ever live performance as a Whitesnake member. Sharing a video on her Instagram profile, she explained:
“The energy of everyone was just so overwhelming. I almost forgot where I was about ten times. It was just so mad to open at home because, obviously, the first show you’re gonna have hiccups and whatnot. And I had an awful lot of trouble with my in-ear monitors.”
She also adds in the description of the post:
“2AM post show thoughts. Took me hours to come down of that ‘Irish high’ 🥰🇮🇪🍀”
“Thanks for being such an amazing crowd, first show bumps are always tough, getting things right; ironing out tech and sound issues etc.. and to have opening night be at home, no pressure eh 😅🤘🏽😂“
“Hence why bands usually do a warm up show pre tour launch, we didn’t have that opportunity 😅”
