Vandenberg has not toured North America for an extensive run of appearances since 1986. For the first time in decades, Adrian along with the new line-up of Vandenberg, will stage 20 shows in early 2024.  All events from February 23 in Ft. Lauderdale through March 16 in San Antonio are co-headline events with Geoff Tate.

Adrian Vandenberg shares, “Finally following up on the historic quote ‘Go West, Young Man!’ ‘Young men’ in this case, because I’m bringing my übertalented kick ass band with me to the U.S. of course.  And it’s about freakin’ time guys.  My first American tour since the Whitesnake 1990 tour, this is seriously exciting!!  Some classic Vandenberg songs and an XXXL order of songs from my Whitesnake years will get torpedo’d upon our American friends with a BANG. Can’t wait to see y’all! BIG ROCK coming your way!!”

Vandenberg and Music Theories Recordings will release SIN on August 25. Three reveals have been presented thus far. To preview: “Sin” (, “Light It Up” (, and “House On Fire” ( Pre-Order here:

Vandenberg shares, “Sin. Just a tiny, three letter word but one with a very comprehensive meaning. Everything in between a little white lie and a murder. So, it deserves a powerful, heavy, epic song to do it justice.”

Every album paints a picture. Instead of utilizing a brush and canvas, Vandenberg paints with towering vocals, earthquaking rhythms, and the iconic and instantly recognizable fretwork of guitarist and namesake Adrian Vandenberg. Joined by vocalist Mats Levén, drummer Koen Herfst, and bassist Randy van der Elsen, the influential axe-slinger delivers a vibrant, visceral, and vital vision on the group’s fifth full-length offering, SIN [Mascot Label Group], brought to life in broad strokes of anthemic hard rock and airtight metal and produced by Bob Marlette [Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie]

“For me, music is very much like a painting,” affirms Adrian. “You have your ups, downs, lights, and shades. One song might make you want to jump on the table and party your brains out. Another song will inspire you to think. Either way, you’re thrown into a landscape, which my favorite albums still do to me. You could be in your car or at home with your headphones plugged into a soundsystem, and you’re in a different world.”

& – On-Sale August 17


Exploding out of The Netherlands and onto the global scene with 1982’s self-titled Vandenberg, the Dutch phenomenon notched an international hit in the form of “Burning Heart,” paving the way for seminal releases such as Heading For A Storm [1983] and Alibi [1985]. The band canvased the United States, Europe, and Japan alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Kiss, Rush, Scorpions, Michael Schenker, and many others. Sought out to join Whitesnake, Adrian famously ripped the legendary lead on the 1987 recording of the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” which adorned the 8x-platinum Whitesnake and ended up touring the world’s largest arenas for a year-and-a-half when the 1987 album went through the roof in terms of sales. He co-wrote the entirety of 1989’s platinum Slip of the Tongue and spent the ensuing tour sharing axe duties with none other than Steve Vai. In addition to playing guitar on and cowriting Restless Heart from David Coverdale & Whitesnake, he performed hundreds of shows as part of the band for some twelve years. Speaking to the breadth of his output, he notably penned and recorded “A Number One” as the theme for his hometown Dutch football team FC Twente. 2013 saw him launch the acclaimed Vandenberg’s MoonKings, releasing MoonKings [2014], MK II [2017], and Rugged and Unplugged [2018].
