Five Finger Death Punch had a pretty crazy end to their tour, with talk of retirement and drunk drivers.
The retirement talk came from singer Ivan Moody, who brought his kids on stage last Friday in Denver and told the audience, "I made them a deal today, and I’m going to stick to it. After this year, I am going to make one more Five Finger Death Punch album and then I am retiring from heavy metal." It's not clear if retiring from "heavy metal" means he wants to make other music beside Five Finger Death Punch.
Then on Saturday in West Valley, Utah the band's set was cut short after just eight songs because the power went out at the venue. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory tweeted after the show, "[It] started out as an incredible show with 20,000 fans. This was going off when a drunk driver hit a transformer down the road and knocked out the power for the whole area. One more reason to not drink and drive -- you screwed up 20,000 people’s day."
Five Finger Death Punch start a new tour November 9th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
