WHITE LION singer Mike Tramp recently released the following statement to MelodiRock.com regarding the group's upcoming reunion:
"Since I have been on the road in Europe, there has been a new story every night about a potential WHITE LION reunion for next year. Since I have always been a man of facts rather than rumors, here's what's REALLY going on.
"In the summer, I realized that, if there ever was to be a [WHITE LION] reunion, it would have to be in 2004 and not at any other time. I spoke to the other members of the band and told them of my plans and, as we are living in the time we are living in, everything depends on what is really on the table.
"My manager and I talked to our agent, he tested the waters and the reactions were overwhelming from many parts of the world. Same goes for record companies and publishers, who all felt that this could be a very strong project for next year.
"At this point, the ONLY thing that is confirmed is that there will be a WHITE LION tour in 2004. I am not able to confirm the line-up, I am not able to confirm the songs that will be played and I am not able to confirm any shows except that we will be co-headlining Bang Your Head 2004 in Balingen, Germany.
"The goal is to play as many shows in the summer as possible and whatever you read right here is the truth. Enjoy the rumors on the internet, but unless you see it at www.melodicrock.com, it is nothing but a rumor. All the best, Mike Tramp"
