Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach have announced that they will be teaming up this fall to launch a North American coheadlining arena tour and they involved fans in selecting which cities the tour would hit.
Both band launched a “demand campaign” on their websites where they asked fans to request that the tour hit their city and the bands have mapped out the tour routing with the help of 1.5 million fans.
The tour will feature support from In This Moment and From Ashes To New and it set to kick off on September 4th in Lexington, KY at the Rupp Arena and conclude on October 9th in Glen Falls, NY at the Glen Falls Civic Center.
Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory had this to say, “This tour is shaping up to be the perfect storm. We are really good friends with Papa Roach so for years we’ve been talking about touring together and it’s finally coming together in a big way.
“Both 5fdp and Papa Roach are bands of the people – our fans are who propelled us to success. So what better way than to give the fans ownership in the tour? In the world of Wikipedia and Kickstarter where crowd funding and crowd sourcing has become the standard of community effort and the new way of making things happen this might quite possibly be the future of touring – you simply ask the fans where they want you to go”.
Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix adds, “We are super excited to be sharing the stage on this co-headliner with FFDP. This will give Papa Roach the chance to put on the best, most epic live show to date. Our fans are going to be so stoked for these shows coming up. We seriously can’t wait to get out on the road for this tour.”
