Watch Five Finger Death Punch Meltdown Onstage In Memphis, TN (Updated)


Update – May 02nd 12:31pm:

Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody has issued the following statement regarding last night’s performance which saw various members of the band walk out:

“There were a lot of technical problems last night that were seemingly unsolvable. We had to make a decision whether to hit the stage crippled, without being able to hear ourselves; or, delay the start of the show – possibly for hours.

We decided to proceed, but not being able to hear if I was in key, and just guessing where we were in the song frustrated me to the point that I lost my cool.

I’m not saying I handled it appropriately. Matter of fact I’ve never been so embarrassed before. I apologize for taking out my anger on stage. You guys know me and you know how I pride myself on my live performances. I’d never want this to boil over in to something that epically wrong ever again.

To some of our crew, good luck in your future endeavors we wish you the best – we also welcome our new monitor engineer Paul Weber.

To our fans in Memphis – we’ll make it up to you I promise, Houston we we will see you tonight. The rest of the world – yes we are coming.

And to the haters… wipe that smirk off your face …We are not going anywhere … This “ain’t my last dance!”


Original Story:

Five Finger Death Punch had a meltdown onstage during last night’s performance in Memphis, TN as part of the ‘Beale Street Music Festival‘. Going by those in attendance, frontman Ivan Moody made a negative remark about drummer Jeremy Spencer‘s book, which led the band to walk out on him, only to return before walking out again shortly after.
