EUROPE singer Joey Tempest joined WHITESNAKE on stage during their performance of the classic encore "Still of the Night" this past Wednesday, July 23 at Villa Contarini in Piazzola sul Brenta, Padova, Italy where the two bands shared the bill.Commented EUROPE in a posting on the group's web site: "WHITESNAKE band and crew were very understanding and professionals. The gig in Padova was a success for us. So many fans had turned up and the audience seemed to have a really great time. After the show, we decided to stay and see WHITESNAKE play. We talked a lot in the band about how we used to go to their shows and listen to 'Slide It In' all the time in our tour bus. We also like their new song 'Best Years'. We watched the whole show from the side of the stage and we got really into it. Towards the end of their show, [David] Coverdale [WHITESNAKE frontman] and Doug Aldrich [WHITESNAKE guitarist] asked Joey to join them on stage. So towards the end of 'Still of the Night', Joey walked out and finished the song with David Coverdale. A lot of fun." Fan-filmed footage of the performance can be viewed below.
