Special guests on the tour will be Hellyeah and Nothing More and they are set for a Sunday, September 28th concert beginning at 6:00pm at Mohegan Sun Arena

Tickets are $35.00 and go on sale Friday, June 6th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, June 7th subject to availability.

Five Finger Death Punch, undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful Rock bands globally, dominated 2013 with the releases The Wong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell – Volume 1 and Volume 2.  Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 (more notably, within a four-month period) and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe. The two albums feature two #1 radio hit singles (Lift Me Up” featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest and “Battle Born”) and have combined sales of over 600,000 units to date. The multi-million selling Rock titans’ current single, “The House Of The Rising Sun” is their 13th consecutive top ten hit at Active Rock Radio. Watch the video here: http://vevo.ly/pNJ7Cr. USA TODAY proclaimed Volume 2 elevates the group “…to the top of its game. Offering more than blind rage, though there’s certainly plenty, the songs live in the tension implied by the album’s title—aware of the implications of lashing out, ready to accept the consequences” (11/19/13). Following Australia’s Soundwave Festival and shows across Japan and South East Asia, the band just concluded a sold out European headlining tour. Five Finger Death Punch is Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar) and Chris Kael (bass).

Volbeat’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies has sold more than 300,000 copies in the U.S. according to Soundscan, alongside hundreds of thousands of digital singles. The Danish quartet received their first Grammy Nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category for “Room 24″ (Volbeat Featuring King Diamond) and won Germany’s Echo Award for “Best International Alternative Act.”   The band’s repertoire has become a staple at Active Rock radio, cementing their relevance with five consecutive #1 singles at the format.  Their latest “Dead But Rising” is entrenched in the Top 5, on its way to the peak of the chart.  Overseas, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies has been certified platinum in their home country of Denmark, alongside Germany and Austria, with gold sales in Finland.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today.
