...but it's still going ahead.



Both Papa Roach and Devil You Know - who were set to play London's Wembley Arena with Five Finger Death Punch this weekend - have pulled out of the show.

Papa Roach announced the postponement of their European tour in a message to fans overnight, but FFDP are ploughing on.

In place of the two bands who've left the tour, the band will be supported by SkindredAs Lions and The One Hundred at Saturday's London show.

"We continue to face additional challenges but remain committed to finishing out the tour as best as we can," said the band in a statement.

"We are not a band that is used to postponing or canceling shows. In fact, we have always prided ourselves on showing up onstage no matter what."

Read their full message to fans below.

"
Despite some significant challenges in Europe since the horrible events in Paris recently, we have continued on our tour and remained dedicated to our mission of providing you, the fans, the highest quality show in the safest possible show environment. As a result of new & increased travel/transportation restrictions and challenges, in some cities we are scheduled to play, we are unable to fulfill this promise, so we were forced to postpone those shows. We continue to face additional challenges but remain committed to finishing out the tour as best as we can. We are not a band that is used to postponing or canceling shows. In fact, we have always prided ourselves on showing up onstage no matter what, so these extenuating circumstances have been particularly challenging for us, as artists, given the high standard we place on ourselves to deliver for the fans.

Five Finger Death Punch will finish out the remaining European tour dates without Papa Roach and Devil You Know in Düsseldorf, Germany and at Wembley Arena in the UK. The lineup for Düsseldorf will include FFDP, Eskimo Callboy, Skindred and Nothing More. For Wembley it will be FFDP, Skindred, As Lions and The One Hundred. The show in Brussels will be postponed, but we will be back soon to play for our Belgian fans.

We appreciate everyone’s support as we continue to navigate these largely uncharted waters. Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than delivering the best show possible in the safest conditions."
