FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH cancels remaining European shows due to complications from IVAN MOODY's hernia surgery


FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has canceled even more shows in order to allow singer Ivan Moody to fully recover from his recent hernia surgery.

On Friday (June 2), the Las Vegas-based act released a statement explaining that Moody has been advised by doctors “to rest and refrain from travel until the beginning of July.”

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_official and @epicaofficial 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.

Who will we see Sunday, June 18? 👀 Scroll back to see photo and video from the other shows, so you KNOW it’s going to be a great time.
