Nach der gestrigen Absage von PAPA ROACH für ihre Headliner-Show in Berlin (wir berichteten) keimten direkt Berfürchtungen bezüglich der heutigen Show in Düsseldorf auf. Wird sie überhaupt stattfinden? Das Ganze ist nun offiziell: Ja, die Show wird stattfinden, allerdings gab es hierbei Änderungen am ursprünglichen Line-up.

Headliner FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH und Special Guest ESKIMO CALLBOY werden demnach definitiv spielen. Leider nicht dabei sein werden PAPA ROACH und DEVIL YOU KNOW. Als Ersatz springen hierfür die ebenfalls aktuell auf Tour befindlichen SKINDRED und NOTHING MORE ein. Anbei das Statement von PAPA ROACH zur heutigen Absage:

It is again with a heavy heart, that we are announcing the postponement of the remainder of our European tour. We pride ourselves for rarely canceling shows, but our crew is an essential part of our organization and because they, unfortunately, could not continue the tour due to their logistical challenges and uncertainties, we could not either. We respect them and have had to accept their difficult choice to return home. We shall return next year. We will announce more details on rescheduling as soon as we are able to. ‪#‎paparoach‬ ‪#‎weloveyou‬

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH lassen zum heutigen Line-up-Wechsel folgendes wissen:

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.

Ob seitens PAPA ROACH und DEVIL YOU KNOW wirklich ernsthafte Sicherheitsbedenken bezüglich der heutigen Show vorlagen oder nicht, lässt sich indes leider nicht einschätzen. Wer SKINDRED und NOTHING MORE nicht kennen sollte, für den haben wir hier zwei Songproben:
