Due to unforeseen circumstances, MANFRED MANN will not be appearing on the U.K. tour with URIAH HEEP, according to a posting at The replacement support band is WHITE NOISE, the new project fronted by former RAINBOW and current YNGWIE MALMSTEEN frontman Doogie White.

Keeping up the RAINBOW connection, the WHITE NOISE project features members of MOSTLY AUTUMN, including Ian Jennings, Liam Davison and Ritchie Blackmore protégé Bryan Josh.

Since first being offered the support slot with BLACKMORE'S NIGHT, Bryan has toured extensively and jammed on stage with Blackmore, watching and learning from the master.

WHITE NOISE performs a white-hot selection of PURPLE and RAINBOW classics from Doogie's tenure with RAINBOW, which saw the creation of the brilliant "Stranger In Us All" album. With musicianship of this calibre, the band are also more than capable of throwing in little-performed classics such as "Burn", "I Surrender" and "Stargazer".
