Opening the 53rd Guitar Festival in Zaječar, Serbia will be none other than the legendary Whitesnake! Their show in Serbia is a part of their ”Flesh & Blood” tour, promoting the same titled album.
Mayor of Zaječar, Boško Ničić stated the following:
Immediately after the end of last year’s Guitar Festival, when Billy Idol broke all records of the visit, the fans expressed their desire to see “Whitesnake” on the Kraljevica. We have come into contact with a group that Serbia has always been one of the favorite destinations and have agreed to open this year’s Gitarijada, to mutual satisfaction. As the oldest rock and roll festival in the Balkans, we have the obligation to give every year a better and better quality program.
Equally optimistic David Coverdale stated:
We are really excited and we can not wait for the performance at the 53rd Gitarijada, June 27 in Zaječar. Gitarijada will therefore become part of a large and continuous celebration of the 40th anniversary of Whitesnake’s career. I am extremely honored and grateful that we celebrate love, good music and positive energy for four decades, together with millions of fans around the world! Thank you for being here with us in this fascinating mission!
Entrance for this year’s manifestation, same as always, will be free.
