Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown announce co-headlining tour with Sixx:A.M.


Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown announced co-headlining tour with Sixx:A.M.! Below the tour dates.


Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory said about the tour: "I wanted to give you a brilliant quote about trying to keep rock music alive by assembling bills that can sell out arenas where everyone can have the production rock shows deserve, or bringing out new talented bands and expose them to huge crowds... or about rebuilding a community with the help of rock radio, and donating to good causes while we are at it… but we are so busy doing it that I ran out of quotes."

Shinedown frontman Brent Smith added: "Shinedown has always been about sharing the undeniable power of rock music. And performing live is where we make that connection most directly, where we can truly experience that power together with our fans in its purest form because we are literally sharing the same physical space, living in that moment as one. Five Finger Death Punch shares that passion and commitment, and, like us, leaves it all out on the stage every single night. Come experience the power of rock music with us."

Sixx.A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx said: "We are really excited and proud to be part of this tour with FFPD and Shinedown. Having spent many months in the studio recording 'Prayers For The Damned', it will give us the opportunity to play our new songs and hits in arenas."

Frontman James Michael added: "They have been such supporters of new music and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this powerful night of music!"

Guitarist DJ Ashba: "I can't tell you how excited we are to be sharing the bill with FFDP and Shinedown, this tour is going to be off the f'n chain, can't wait to see you all out there!"
