Chiaki Nozu/Getty ImagesFive Finger Death Punch have announced a free show in Tilburg, The Netherlands to make up for their bizarre show in the city earlier this week, during which frontman Ivan Moody declared, “This is my last show with Five Finger Death Punch.”
“Last Monday’s show was an avalanche of events largely out of our control,” says guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “We could sit here all day and apologize but our fans in the Netherlands deserve better than that. They’ve stuck with us all these years and helped get us to where we are today. So, we managed to re-route our tour and come back to Tilburg and play a free show on our day off — because actions speak louder than words.”
Along with Moody’s strange declaration, reports from the Tilburg show said FFDP played out of sync and that the members argued onstage with each other. Moody didn’t even show up until the third song in the set, so Bad Wolves vocalist Tommy Vext performed with the band during the beginning of the show.
In a Facebook post, Bathory claims that show got off to rough start when “a crew member rolled the intro without verifying if we were all present,” and everything snowballed from there. On Wednesday, FFDP announced that they’d be finishing their European tour without Moody and with Vext on lead vocals.
The free Tilburg show will take place June 19.
