Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown Coming to Rupp Arena May 8

LOS ANGELES, Ca. (Feb. 6, 2018) – Multi-platinum hard rock band, Five Finger Death Punch (5FDP), have announced that they will be getting back on the road this Spring for select North American co-headlining dates with past tour mates Shinedown that includes a May 8 stop in Lexington at Rupp Arena.

Joining the bands on tour are modern rock powerhouse Starset, who will showcase songs from their latest release, Vessels, and newcomers Bad Wolves, who are currently dominating the rock and metal charts around the globe with their cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” which was released in memory of Dolores O’Riordan who was supposed to record guest vocals on the song the very day of her tragic passing.

5FDP and Shinedown are reuniting for this exclusive, short run for the first time since co-headlining their massive North American arena tour in Fall 2016. The shows will kick off May 6 in Nashville, Tn., with local pre-sale going on now. General ticket on-sale will kick off on Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. See below for a full tour itinerary.

In late 2017, 5FDP released their greatest hits album, A Decade Of Destruction, with two new tracks “Trouble” and “Gone Away” (their own rendition of The Offspring’s 1997 hit single). Both tracks garnered much critical acclaim and great success, as latest single “Gone Away” received over 10 million streams since its debut on Dec. 1st and over 10 million video views in less than a month. “Gone Away” is already #25 on the Active Rock chart and climbing steadily. In addition, the first single from the collection, “Trouble” racked up over 2 million streams worldwide in just a few weeks making it the band’s biggest streaming debut for a lead track.

5FDP rounded out 2017 by celebrating two new RIAA platinum certifications for their 2011 album American Capitalist, and 2013’s The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, Vol. 1. War Is The Answer, the band’s 2009 album, and their hit single “Bad Company” were previously certified platinum in 2016 and 2013, respectively.

5FDP’s seventh full-length album is anticipated to be released this coming Spring.
