Five Finger Death Punch Announce 2020 Tour With Megadeth And Bad Wolves
Two of metal’s biggest bands are teaming up for a huge arena tour of Europe in 2020. Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth are heading out across the continent in January and February next year, and they’ll be joined by Los Angeles hard rock newbies Bad Wolves.
“The line-up is massive,” says FFDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “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,” he continues. “I consider him one of the founding fathers of not just thrash but heavy hetal in general, because his riffs and guitar playing have influenced everyone that was in Megadeth’s blast radius… and that’s a big radius.”
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!”
Back in June, Dave revealed that he had been diagnosed with throat cancer, but has been continuing to work, entering the studio with Megadeth this summer.
Five Finger Death Punch’s upcoming eighth album is due for release next year.
Tickets go on sale September 13 at 10am local time.
