Five Finger Death Punch Scrap Remainder Of Summer European Shows As Ivan Moody Continues To Recover From Hernia Surgery


Five Finger Death Punch have announced the cancellation of their planned summer European touring due to ongoing health complications with their vocalist Ivan Moody. The singer underwent hernia surgery this year and continues to recover from the process.

His unexpectedly lengthy recovery period has forced the band to scrap the aforementioned trek, which included several highly coveted opening slots with Metallica. A statement issued by the multi-platinum metal band yesterday, June 02nd, reads as follows:

“It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of the last three shows on our European run this summer in Romania, Sweden and Switzerland.

Ivan was recently seen by his medical team and they have now advised him to rest and refrain from travel until the beginning of July. This is to ensure he makes a full recovery and can be ready to start the North American leg of this tour on July 21st in York, PA without further interruption.

We would like to thank Metallica for their unwavering support of the band and of Ivan during this tough time. We would also like to thank Floor Jansen and Epica for stepping in at such short notice to fill our spot.

Most importantly, though, we thank the fans for your understanding and patience. It is heartbreaking we were not able to play these shows, but we will most certainly return next year and we have a few other things planned too.
