British rock legends Whitesnake announced this morning that they will go on tour with the groups Europe and Foreigner in the spring of 2022. 

Along with announcing the tour dates, they also announced a new member of the band – Croatian Dino Jelusić, who is known by his stage name Dino Jelusick.

Jelusick (29) has built a fantastic International career in recent years, one which was recognised by one of the most famous rock bands in history.

“I am also absolutely delighted to welcome the extremely gifted Dino Jelusick to Whitesnake. We’ve had our eyes & ears on him since we played Zagreb together 2 years ago. You’re going to love him!,” lead singer David Coverdale said.

Whitesnake have played in Croatia a number of times and at their most recent concert at Šalata in Zagreb, Jelusick performed with his band Animal Drive as the opening act. 

“I am beyond honoured to be part of one of my favourite bands of all time. To get the phone call from David Coverdale is something every singer and musician of my generation can only dream of, it still feels completely surreal. I cannot wait to start hitting the road with Whitesnake and as the great DC said to me himself, to give a piece of my identity to the sound of this iconic band,” Dino said.
