Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat at Verizon Oct. 17
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - Global rock heavyweights Five Finger Death Punch and Volbeat are coming to Verizon Arena this Fall.
They perform on October 17 at 6:20 p.m. with special guests Hellyeah and Nothing More.
All tickets are $51.50 for general admission floor (no chairs).
Tickets go on sale Monday, May 12 at 10 a.m. at the Verizon Arena Box Office, all Ticketmaster Outlets, charge by phone at 800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
The co-headlining arena tour across North America kicks off on Sept. 15 at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, UT and run through October with the final performance taking place at The Joint in Las Vegas.
In honor of the announcement, both headliners will feature huge sweepstakes on their Facebook pages where fans can enter to win grand prizes such as a guitar signed by all bands on the tour, meet & greets with all four bands on the tour, as well as tickets to the shows and many other prizes.
Five Finger Death Punch dominated 2013 with the releases The Wrong Side of Heaven and The Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1 and 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe.
Volbeat's Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies has sold more than 300,000 copies in the U.S. according to Soundscan, alongside hundreds of thousands of digital singles. The Danish quartet received their first Grammy Nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category for "Room 24" (Volbeat Featuring King Diamond), and won Germany's Echo Award for "Best International Alternative Act."
Since forming in Copenhagen in 2000, Volbeat has released five studio albums, and two live offerings that have turned the band into superstars, collecting platinum discs and prestigious awards making them one of the most talked about bands around the world.
After roughly eight years, three albums, countless tours as headliners and as participants on "can't miss" festival bills and hundreds of thousands of albums sold, Hellyeah is making their biggest and boldest statement yet with Blood for Blood (out 6/10/14). The single “Sangre Por Sangre (Blood for Blood)” hit the Top 30 after only 2 weeks at rock radio.
Hailing from San Antonio, Nothing More is part schizoid System Of A Down weird-isms, part Mars Volta-esque prog rock freak out, part effortless pop nous, they seamlessly barrel from churning headbang to skyscraping chorus and back again in the blink of an eye. They are equally able to dial down their bluster into deft moments of crystalline beauty when the mood takes them. Their self-titled album (out 6/24/14) that includes their Top 10 radio single “This Is The Time (Ballast)”, is a gut-punching blend made all the more powerful by a keen lyrical sophistication and philosophical undertone, which marks them out from their contemporaries.
