This week’s concerts list is pretty metal.
As in, Five Finger Death Punch, which headlines Blazefest 2018, the annual heavy-rock radio showcase from 105.1 The Blaze.
The band is playing without drummer Jeremy Spencer, who just bowed out of the band’s current tour to have back surgery. His replacement is some kind of mysterious drum prodigy, so fans won’t be disappointed.
Also on the line up is Breaking Benjamin, Bad Wolves and From Ashes to New.
