Five Finger Death Punch & Papa Roach with very special guests SIXX:A.M. & From Ashes to New
September 10, 2016 @ 6:45 pm - 12:00 am
With 10 #1 singles and over 25 Top 10 singles between them, millions of video streams and fans all over the globe, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH have been dominating the airwaves throughout their careers. Both bands—who have been heralded, by fans and press alike, as having killer live shows—have come together to co-headline Canadian arenas from coast to coast for the first time this fall, presented by Mascioli Entertainment and Evenko with $1 of each ticket sold being donated to a wildfire relief charity organization soon to be announced.
Says Mike Mascioli, Vice President of Mascioli Entertainment, “I will never lose my passion for buying and promoting national tours, especially when bands like Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach stay loyal by sticking with independents like myself. And with the massive success of this same tour in the States and Europe, I’m thrilled to be able to bring them to Canada!” Daniel Glick, Director of Concerts & Events for Evenko adds, “Fans spoke and we listened. We worked really hard with both bands to make this happen. They’ve been on our must-have list for a while now and announcing this tour is very exciting. We look forward to seeing Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach this fall in Canada”.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH actively involved the fans by giving them the opportunity to request the tour come to their city via a “demand campaign” housed at http://demand.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/ and http://demand.paparoach.com/
An overwhelming 60,000 Canadian fans responded to the call to action and made their voices heard.
Zoltan Bathory (guitar) of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH states: “We took this Demand Campaign everywhere. We had huge success with it in the USA and in Europe it even won the “Arena Tour Of The Year” award… It’s not surprising in a way as it is inclusive of the fans, they vote and we are listening. What a concept, right? Nobody learns from talking, you learn from listening.”
“When we did this tour last year in the USA, it was truly the Best Tour Ever. We heard from so many of our Canadian fans that really wanted to see this show – so we’re bringing it to them. Really cannot be more excited to go back – even heading east of Quebec. This is one show you won’t wanna miss.” says PAPA ROACH vocalist, Jacoby Shaddix.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH previously co-headlined American and European arenas to great success last Fall and won the prestigious “Arena Tour Of The Year” award from the German Promoters Association.
Special guests on the tour will be SIXX:A.M., whose single, “Rise” is currently #3 on the Canadian Rock Chart. Their recent April 29 global release of Prayers For The Damned, Vol. 1, debuted at #1 on the US Independent Album Chart, #2 on the US Rock Albums Chart, #7 on Canada’s Billboard Top 200 Chart, and in the Top 5 Album Chart around the globe. Vocalist James Michael says: “We’ve been getting tremendous support for our new single RISE from the fans and from Canadian radio. We are thrilled to be touring Canada this fall with FFDP and Papa Roach!”
Support comes from newcomers FROM ASHES TO NEW who will, for the first time, play songs from their debut Better Noise Records release, Day One, including hit-single, “Through It All” to audiences all across Canada.
