Delivering the punch
It was a great night for heavy metal fans.
Five Finger Death Punch put on a hell of a show at CN Centre Wednesday night. The L.A. band on their Wrong Side of Heaven Tour gave die-hard fans a wild ride with great vocals and guitars, lots of F-bombs and slick sets.
The show also had its share of drama.
Security staff had its hands full, literally, with a fan who had managed to break through the barrier ending up within feet of the L.A. rock band. But FFDP lead singer Ivan Moody made it clear that FFDP was there for their fans.
The music stopped after the first song.
Moody walked to the microphone – the one with the chrome skull and revolver – and said in a stern voice:
“ We are not going to continue with this [performance] until we get more security people in here. Why is there only three in here (pit area)?”
A fourth security person held up his hand. Moody then did another head count, asked for more security and waited. Within seconds ICM staff doubled its ranks and the show went on. However, before the it resumed, Moody made it known that it was all about the fans – and their safety.
“These fans out here have paid good money to be here and I want to see more security out here for them, so that everybody has a good time,” he said.
The current band line-up is Moody, plus rhythm guitarist Zoltan Bathory, lead guitarist Jason Hook, bass guitar Chris Kael and drummer Jeremy Spencer.
FFDP had three opening rock bands as guests including Gemini Syndrome.
Five Finger Death Punch just released their new single Battlebow this week leading up to the November release of their new album The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 2.
