Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach Join Forces This Fall For North American Co-Headling Arena Tour In Markets Demanded By Fans, With Special Guest In This Moment And Support From Ashes To New
With 10 #1 singles and over 25 Top 10 singles between them, millions of video streams and fans all over the globe Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach have been dominating the airwaves throughout their careers. The two bands – who have also been heralded by fans and press alike as having killer live shows – have come together for the first time to co-headline North America arenas this fall, fueled by Monster Energy and produced by Frank Productions/NS2.
Larry Frank, CEO of Frank Productions/NS2 notes: “Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach are the two most dynamic live rock bands touring today. We can’t wait to blow away fans across the U.S. with a show this huge.”
In an innovative move, Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach actively involved the fans by giving them the opportunity to request the tour come to their city via a “demand campaign” housed at http://demand.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/ and http://demand.paparoach.com/ An overwhelming 1.5 million people responded to the call to action and made their voices heard.
Says Zoltan Bathory (guitar) of Five Finger Death Punch: “This tour is shaping up to be the perfect storm. We are really good friends with Papa Roach so for years we’ve been talking about touring together and it’s finally coming together in a big way. Both 5fdp and Papa Roach are bands of the people – our fans are who propelled us to success. So what better way than to give the fans ownership in the tour? In the world of Wikipedia and Kickstarter where crowd funding and crowd sourcing has become the standard of community effort and the new way of making things happen this might quite possibly be the future of touring – you simply ask the fans where they want you to go”. “We are super excited to be sharing the stage on this co-headliner with FFDP,” says Papa Roach vocalist, Jacoby Shaddix. “This will give Papa Roach the chance to put on the best, most epic live show to date. Our fans are going to be so stoked for these shows coming up. We seriously can’t wait to get out on the road for this tour.”
Special guests will be In This Moment with support from debut artist Ashes To New. Fans will get to see four of Rock’s most exciting, relevant bands under one roof on one night for $40 – a nice price for a package sure to excite fans who voted to bring the tour to their town.
