Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody was forced to sit out the August 27 concert at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in support of Metallica due to a terrible flu.
Moody was replaced by Phil Labonte (All That Remains), Howard Jones (Killswitch Engage) and AJ Channer (Fire From The Gods).
Shortly before taking the stage at SoFi Stadium, Five Finger Death Punch wrote in a statement: “To our friends in L.A.! Ivan fell ill with a terrible flu and won’t be able to perform tonight. We are grateful that our good friends Phil Labonte (ALL THAT REMAINS),Howard Jones (ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ex-LIGHT THE TORCH and SION) and AJ Channer (FIRE FROM THE GODS) are stepping up and will take over his vocal duties for what will surely be a special show. Join us in wishing our brother Ivan well, he’ll be back very soon.”
