**** TOUR UPDATE ****
*** Australian Appearances Cancelled ***
Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody was hospitalized in his hometown of Denver. He is expected to make a full recovery but it is with deep regret that Five Finger Death Punch will be forced to cancel their appearances in Australia, both with Black Sabbath and as headliners in Sydney and in Melbourne.
It is especially disappointing to Five Finger Death Punch that they will not be able to play before Black Sabbath, a band Five Finger Death Punch has deep reverence for, on Black Sabbath’s last ever shows in Australia.
Ivan and Five Finger Death Punch express their sincere apologies to both their fans and to the fans of Black Sabbath.
Ticket holders for Five Finger Death Punch’s headline shows in Melbourne (April 20 at The Forum) and Sydney (April 22 at Big Top, Luna Park) and will be contacted by the relevant ticketing outlet to advise of the process for obtaining a refund.
Black Sabbath’s national tour begins on April 15 at Perth Arena.

In 2015, Five Finger Death Punch crashed into the ARIA Charts at #3 with their sixth album, Got Your Six, giving them their highest Australian chart position ever! Got Your Six is the follow-up to the two global smash hits, 2013’s The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volumes 1 and 2 which debuted at #13 and #29 respectively. The album prior, 2011’s American Capitalist debuted at #50, proving FFDP’s fanbase has grown dramatically in Australia over just a few years.
The band’s second single from Got Your Six, Wash It All Away, quickly climbed the Rock radio charts in the U.S. and recently went #1 for two weeks in a row! The striking, live performance video for the song was shot by iconic music video director Wayne Isham (Metallica, Mötley Crüe) and showcases their highly visual stage show and the contagious energy that fuels the thousands of rabid fans in attendance. It’s the perfect example of what you can expect when you watch FFDP live!
The Vegas-based rockers have grown exponentially in a short amount of time, racking up 15 consecutive Top Ten hits, three #1s and five gold albums. With the release of their 2-volumes in 2013, the band frequently released new content outselling the majority of bands in their genre, with more than 1.5 million albums sold over the past two years just in North America alone.
The band’s last visit to our shores was in 2014 as part of the Soundwave Festival, where their trademark stadium anthems garnered new fans and thrilled their faithful.
Now, audiences in Melbourne and Sydney will have yet another chance to take in the full force of Five Finger Death Punch: one of heavy metal’s most uncompromising outfits.
