Five Finger Death Punch To Finish Out European Tour Sans Belgium, Papa Roach, Etc. Head Home


Five Finger Death Punch‘s European tour with Papa Roach and Devil You Know has been met with numerous postponements, not only in the wake of the terrorist attacks that rocked Paris, France on November 13th, but also rumors of terrorist activity being planned for their subsequently cancelled show in Milan, Italy this past weekend.

With Belgium largely on lockdown amidst a high terror alert, the bands have postponed their planned show in Brussels, Belgium on Thursday, November 26th. Five Finger Death Punch will however continue on with tomorrow’s (November 25th) show in Dusseldorf, Germany and their November 28th show in London, England. That said, the band will be doing so without the expected tour package, as both Papa Roach and Devil You Know have decided to head home from the tour. Five Finger Death Punch commented:

“Despite some significant challenges in Europe since the horrible events in Paris recently, we have continued on our tour and remained dedicated to our mission of providing you, the fans, the highest quality show in the safest possible show environment. As a result of new & increased travel/transportation restrictions and challenges, in some cities we are scheduled to play, we are unable to fulfill this promise, so we were forced to postpone those shows. We continue to face additional challenges but remain committed to finishing out the tour as best as we can. We are not a band that is used to postponing or canceling shows.

In fact, we have always prided ourselves on showing up onstage no matter what, so these extenuating circumstances have been particularly challenging for us, as artists, given the high standard we place on ourselves to deliver for the fans.

Five Finger Death Punch will finish out the remaining European tour dates without Papa Roach and Devil You Know in Düsseldorf, Germany and at Wembley Arena in the UK. The lineup for Düsseldorf will include FFDP, Eskimo Callboy, Skindred and Nothing More. For Wembley it will be FFDP, Skindred, As Lions and The One Hundred.

The show in Brussels will be postponed, but we will be back soon to play for our Belgian fans. We appreciate everyone’s support as we continue to navigate these largely uncharted waters. Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than delivering the best show possible in the safest conditions.”

Papa Roach themselves commented:

“It is again with a heavy heart, that we are announcing the postponement of the remainder of our European tour. We pride ourselves for rarely canceling shows, but our crew is an essential part of our organization and because they, unfortunately, could not continue the tour due to their logistical challenges and uncertainties, we could not either. We respect them and have had to accept their difficult choice to return home. We shall return next year. We will announce more details on rescheduling as soon as we are able to. #paparoach #weloveyou”
