Bomb Factory Explodes With The Return Of Whitesnake

Bomb Factory Explodes With The Return Of WhitesnakeRock and Roll Hall of Famer, David Coverdale returned to Dallas with his band Whitesnake to a packed house at The Bomb Factory. The last time Coverdale and company came through Texas, it was in support of Whitesnake's most recent CD, The Purple Album, celebrating his time with fellow Hall of Famer's, Deep Purple and the setlist reflected that. This time it was all Whitesnake, and all of their greatest hits.

Coverdale is one of those rare performers that truly captivates an audience. Every guy in the arena wishes they were as cool as he is and every girl wishes they could be with him. He takes command of the stage like a five star general marching into battle with the supreme confidence of knowing he has surrounded himself with the right soldiers to get the job done. The current all star Whitesnake lineup includes longtime member, the drum God Tommy Aldridge (Ozzy Osbourne), guitarists Bomb Factory Explodes With The Return Of WhitesnakeReb Beach (Winger) and Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger/Trans Siberian Orchestra), keyboardist/backing vocalist Michele Luppi (Vision Divine/Secret Sphere) and bassist Michael Devin.

The show opened with "Bad Boys" off the multi-platinum 1987 self titled release and quickly followed with favorites "Slide It In" and "Love Ain't No Stranger." Coverdale sounded better than he has in years and seems to have completely overcome the throat problems that plagued him a few years back. Having an incredibly talented vocalist in keyboardist Michele Luppi there to back you up doesn't hurt either.

The big hits continued with "Fool For Your Loving," "Judgment Day" and "Slow An' Easy" but a nice surprise was also thrown in for longtime fans with the acoustic classic, "Sailing Ships." Another highlight was "Crying In The Rain," complete with a Tommy Aldridge drum solo that nearly brought the house down! This incredible night would come to a close with the crowd pleaser, "Here I Go Again" and the final encore, "Still Of The Night."

This was a killer show with Coverdale still at the top of his game and a backing band that was just on fire. Here's hoping an album of new material is next for this lineup, especially with a songwriter like Joel Hoekstra in the band.
