Five Finger Death Punch cancel European tour due to Ivan Moody complications from hernia surgery


After initial cancellations of tour dates as support for Metallica, Five Finger Death Punch has canceled the remaining European tour dates due to complications experienced by singer Ivan Moody after acute hernia surgery.

Five Finger Death Punch said in an announcement:

“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.
[info on Bucharest will be available as soon as we receive it]
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.
