Five Finger Death Punch Duluth show postponed as guitarist has gall bladder removed

The band's guitarist was taken ill.


The Five Finger Death Punch show in Duluth was postponed Thursday because its lead guitarist needed his gall bladder removed.

"Jason underwent surgery successfully but will have to remain in the hospital until his doctors determine he is fit to be discharged and travel home," the metal band said Friday.

"Jason's healing is our #1 priority. As a result, the last three shows of this current tour will be postponed, however, we are working on coming back to play Duluth, Omaha and Des Moines very soon. Once we have an update on new dates to return, we will post the information on our website and social media channels. Please hold on to your tickets in the meantime."

Original story

Thursday's Five Finger Death Punch concert in Duluth has been postponed due to a "medical emergency" involving the band's guitarist.

The groove-metal band was due to perform at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center on Thursday evening.

However, the DECC announced via a tweet just after 5:30 p.m. that the show would be postponed.

The reason is because of a "medical emergency with Jason Hook," the bands lead guitarist.

More details are yet to be released as to the nature of his emergency.
