Five Finger Death Punch cancel Australian tour with Black Sabbath


Five Finger Death Punch were forced to cancel their Australian tour with Black Sabbath and headlining shows in Sydney and Melbourne after singer Ivan Moody was hospitalized in Denver.


Live Nation said in a statement: "Last Thursday, 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."
