This is a very interesting tour that is coming to Tampa. A little bit country and a little bit rock n’ roll.
If you haven’t heard, Brantley Gilbert and Five Finger Death Punch are coming to Tampa. They made the announcement today. The show is November 22nd at Amalie Arena. Fan club pre-sales for both artists start at 10am on Tuesday, August 16. All other pre-sales begin at 10 am on Thursday, August 18. Tickets go on general on sale at 10am on Friday, August 19.
I heard the two of them were going to tour a few months ago and then I hadn’t heard anything about it, I actually forgot about it until today.
You’re probably saying – wow, what a weird tour? Why would those two bands tour together? This is a very interesting tour that is coming to Tampa.
For those of you who don’t know, Five Finger Death Punch is a heavy active rock band. And they are probably one heavier bands played on rock stations. Think Avenge Sevenfold, Disturbed, Slipknot.
So why in the world would these two tour together? I was thinking about it and what I think is that they both support the men and women who protect this country. Brantley Gilbert’s fans know how much he supports our military. He has written many songs about hero’s, he has been inspired by hero’s and he gives back any time he can to those who have served. Five Finger, does the same. They raise money to help with PTSD through their merchandise, Their affection for veterans earned them the Soldier Appreciation Award from the Association of the United States Army and dog tags donated from their military-veteran fans to adorn their “Wall of Heroes”. Plus, they love meeting men and women who not only serve our country, but our first responders as well.
Five Finger Death Punch Takes Time To Meet First Responders
My fiancé is on the SWAT team and when Five Finger was here a few years ago with Breaking Benjamin, they wanted a chance to meet the guys on the team that were out working that night at the Amphitheatre. So after the show they invited the guys backstage to hang out.
Even though they love to head bang and they are loud, they are a bunch of really great guys. Years ago, I had the chance to interview them and I’ve seen them in concert a handful of times. Five Finger Death Punch has a huge following, their fans are loyal. Well respected in the rock genre.
I think the Five Finger Fans will love Brantley Gilbert. He rocks out and since he’s full of tattoo’s, he looks cool too.
But, Will Brantley Gilbert Fans Accept Five Finger Death Punch On Stage?
Will the country fans accept Five Finger at the show? In my opinion, I think they will check them out and give then a chance. At least a few songs. If the boys mix it up and stay on stage together throughout the show, I think everyone will love it. If you love rock music like I do…yeah, you’ll hang, cuz they are fun to watch on stage, whether you know their music or not, it’s a good show. Here is a song they did together along with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Brian May – it’s really good!!!
This is just my opinion by the way – Launa
