In a tour that was confirmed in recent weeks with a poster, Five Finger Death Punch has now shared the full dates and routing for their Arena Headline Tour of Europe in 2020. Direct support to come from Megadeth and Bad Wolves. With Bad Wolves’ new album due out this fall and FFDP and Megadeth working on new music, it’s possible all three acts will have a new release in time for the tour.
FFDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory commented: “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. The general on-sale starts at 10 a.m. local time this Friday, September 13. Fans can look forward to packed arenas at THE not-to-be-missed rock show of winter 2020.
