Five Finger Death Punch has announced its biggest European arena headlining tour to date.
The tour, which will take place in January and February of 2020, will see thrash metal legends Megadeth will join the lineup as the special guest.
Support will come from Bad Wolves, the global breakthrough rock sensation of 2018 which has been garnering three No. 1 hits over the last 18 months and is getting ready to release its sophomore album on October 25.
UK fans can look forward to two shows on this leg at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena and the iconic Wembley Arena in London.
Speaking on the European Tour dates, 5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory said “The line-up is massive. Bad Wolves were THE break out band of recent years and are certainly bringing the heat. Megadeth needs no introduction; they are absolute legends. Dave Mustaine’s contribution to this genre is simply immeasurable. I consider him one of the founding fathers of not just thrash but heavy metal in general, because his riffs and guitar playing have influenced everyone that was in Megadeth‘s blast radius… and that’s a big radius.”
Megadeth vocalist Dave Mustaine adds: “Hindsight is always 20-20, but looking back it’s still a bit fuzzy. Looking forward, you’ll be in trouble if you don’t come see us with Five Finger Death Punch in early 2020. You don’t wanna miss it. See you soon!”
The tour will visit 14 European countries starting on January 20 at the Hartwell Arena in Helsinki, Finland and ending on February 20 at the Budapest Sportarena in Budapest, Hungary. VIP pre-sales for the tour are kicking off today. Tickets are on -sale now from all of the usual ticket outlets. Fans can look forward to packed arenas at THE not-to-be-missed rock show of winter 2020.
