Five Finger Death Punch, Reno NV, and have you Got Your Six yet????

Five Finger Death Punch and fans
Five Finger Death Punch
What do I say? You all know already how much we love Five Finger Death Punch. You're not going to get a blow-by-blow, song-by-song analysis of the show here: I bought tickets the day they went on sale so that we could be there, photo or press pass or not, and really didn't expect to shoot the whole show. But I tell you, MAGIC HAPPENS around these guys.

Appreciation for veterans and for the kids at the show. A pantomime moment when Jason Hook steals up the stage and Ivan doesn't see ("He's behind you!!!"). All the hits, all the words you learned not to say but can't resist singing along anyway; wonderful music, superb musicianship, terrific show and oh... that voice.

I am still smiling, days later, along with, I expect, everyone in the audience at the Lawlor Event Center, Reno. I don't think they get to see many metal bands in Reno. Maybe more big bands should stop there on their way around the USA. It's only a couple of hours "up the hill" from here in Sacramento, and it's a nice alternative to battling Bay Area traffic.

There were only a couple of songs played from the new album, Got Your Six. Does that mean there will be a new tour, immediately after this one, to play all the new songs? When can I get a ticket for that tour? Let me know, ASAP, because I'll be there.

More dates on this tour, and then in Europe, and then on a boat, see the band's website:

For all the photos from the show, go to the Reno Five Finger Death Punch gallery, or click on any of these images. Usual process!
