Five Finger Death Punch had to cancel a handful of concerts that could not be rescheduled.
In December, the metal group was set to perform a show in Duluth, but just an hour before the sold-out concert began, the band had to call-off the gig due to a medical emergency with lead guitarist Jason Hook. Then, they had to postpone shows in Omaha and Des Moines while Hook underwent emergency surgery to remove his gallblader. Originally, the shows were set to be postponed, but, the band announced in a statement that these shows cannot be rescheduled and therefore must be cancelled.
“We tried to find a solution to reschedule but there’s currently no date where all bands on the bill are available,” the band said. “With that said, we love you guys and thank you for the outpouring of support.”
The shows were set to feature support from Bad Wolves and Three Days Grace. Fans with tickets for shows in Duluth, Des Moines, and Omaha should seek refunds via point of purchase.
Hook has reportedly recovered from surgery and is slated to join the band once again when they hit the road this spring with Papa Roach, I Prevail, and Ice Nine Kills. The group will be touring in support of their eighth studio album, F8, which is due on February 28. So far, they’ve dropped the single “Inside Out.”
