A true clash of the titans, renowned chart-topping European legends IN FLAMES unite with America’s preeminent multiplatinum hard rock band FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH to co-headline what promises to be the biggest and most exciting arena rock tour of Fall/Winter 2017. This marks the very first time that these two juggernauts have joined forces on the road together, and it’s a “can’t miss” moment for the genre and fans at large.
The trek ravages arenas across Europe and the UK beginning in November, stopping in most major cities, and concluding December 21 at iconic Wembley Arena in London, UK. General ticket on sale will take place this Friday, June 16 at 10:00am local time.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltán Báthory states:
“We are currently playing all the European festivals and are having an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. We can’t wait to come back this Fall and especially with IN FLAMES which is one of my favorite bands. This will be something special to see…”
IN FLAMES singer Anders Fridén offers:
“We’ve been lucky to play for so many Jesterheads around the World this year and can’t think of a better way to end 2017 than touring Europe with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. We’ll see you soon Jesterheads and Knuckleheads. It’s going to be a tour to remember.”
Support on select EU dates and all UK dates of the tour comes from Of Mice & Men. The Orange County, CA-based band recently returned with two brand new songs, ‘Back To Me’ and ‘Unbreakable’.
