"Our fans in the Netherlands deserve better..."
Five Finger Death Punch have announced they will play a free show in Tilburg, Netherlands.
The band have decided to return to the place where frontman Ivan Moody reportedly screamed, "this is my last show with Five Finger Death Punch" because in their own words, "our fans in the Netherlands deserve better than that."
Since the show, Ivan has released a statement saying, "I am embarrassed and ashamed to admit that I have fallen off the wagon again.
"I was on shaky ground prior to our performance in Tilburg, and although a lot of the events of that show were out of my control, the shame of not delivering pushed me over the edge."
It was then revealed that Ivan would not be continuing on with the rest of the band's tour and Tommy Vext from Bad Wolves will be filling in.
Details of the free show have been revealed on the band's Facebook page...
"Five Finger Death Punch announced today that they will immediately return to Tilburg to play a free show for any ticket holders from the now infamous 013 performance a week prior.
"Said guitar player Zoltan Bathory, 'Last Monday’s 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.'
"This show will take place in the same venue, the 013 in Tilburg. Ticket holders of last week’s show will promptly receive an email from the venue with instructions on how to obtain their free guaranteed priority tickets. This email will include a link to directly download e-tickets for the show."
Zoltan also left a personal statement on his Facebook page, saying that the Tilburg show was, "an avalanche of clusterfucks".
