5FDP @Tilburg: The Make-up Gig

Exactly one week after their chaotic show in the city of Tilburg, the guys of Five Finger Death Punch returned to play a free show for any ticket holders of the now-infamous 013 performance. And, of course, I was there… again! Like last time, I was accompanied by my two favorite bearded friends and crazy 5FDP-fanatics (just like me).

In announcing the fee (make-up) show of 19th June, Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory said: “Last Monday’s (12th June) show was an avalanche of events largely out of our control. We could sit here all day and apologize but our fans in the Netherlands deserve better than that. They’ve stuck with us all these years and helped get us to where we are today. So, we managed to re-route our tour and come back to Tilburg and play a free show on our day off — because actions speak louder than words.

With lead singer Ivan Moody taking time off the band, due to his battles with alcohol, former Divine Heresy and current Bad Wolves vocalist Tommy Vext was filling in for Moody. During last week’s meltdown performance Vext already took Moody’s place for two songs, because of the band went on without their lead singer.

Enough now about the show of 12th June! Let’s talk about 19th June’s performance. It was an insane and absolutely amazing show. There was an overall party atmosphere, complete with mosh / circle pit and people crowd surfing. Tommy was exploding and doing a great job filling in for Ivan. He kept the energy onstage as well as in the crowd high and it really looks like he was accepted by (most of) the fans.

Although we already saw the guys of Fiver Finger Death Punch with Tommy Vext on Graspop Metal Meeting 2017 two days earlier, I am still glad we took the time visiting this unique show. And I sure hope I’ll have the opportunity to visit another concert someday.

To conclude: With their show of 19th June, Five Finger Death Punch really made things right again for lots of fans. So, let’s just wash it all away and start over with a clean slate.
