Five Finger Death Punch @ Van Andel Arena
Five Finger Death Punch performed at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids Monday November 26th. This article has some great photos from their performance and backstage with some GRD listeners.
I have seen Five Finger Death Punch at least once or twice every tour since the band started and this was the first show I have ever seen where all the members were sober and with smiles on their faces.
Five Finger played a blistering set that had a couple covers included. Guitarist Jason Hook just tore up every single solo. One of the great guitar players of today. He has a pitch pedal installed in one of his guitars which is a pretty cool effect to see performed live.
Lead singer Ivan Moody has a cast on his foot but that didn't seem to slow him down at all and he even made the comment, "Where's my moving chair like Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters", referring to when Dave broke his leg and used a custom thrown that took him into the audience.
Drummer Jeremy Spencer did not perform on this show since he was getting back surgery. Five Finger enlisted a temporary fill in by the name of Charlie Engen which they have nick named "Engine" and if you look close in the pictures he king of looked like Spencer with the same hairdo.
FFDP never skimp on stage production and you will see from the pictures below they went all out for the fans on this tour.
