In a recent interview with WHITESNAKE's official web site, the band's frontman David Coverdale stated about WHITESNAKE's long absence from the U.S. touring circuit, "The lack of success in the U.S. has been a repeated disappointment, to be honest, and we are still determined to change this. As I have told you all before, the tours we've been offered so far simply don't cut it, unfortunately, on most levels, tho' we are trying to change that and we will. Since we reformed, we've never really had all the elements necessary to properly take on this amazing country — no record company, no support system, nobody fighting for us — just so many with great memories from the '80s. I'm recognized everywhere I go over here to the point of embarrassment and I am consistently having to explain, as you did, that WHITESNAKE is alive and well and kicking like a proverbial bitch in heat. However, this still has to be proved in this neck of the woods. But, if anyone can, we can. At this time, we are planning an all-out U.S. assault in 2009 to change the dynamic, as it is simply unacceptable to us how it currently is. So there!"
