Last night, metal legend Rob Halford, frontman for Judas Priest, surprised fans as he jumped on stage to join Five Finger Death Punch for a performance of their song Lift Me Up at the LG Arena in Birmingham. Halford is featured on the studio version of Lift Me Up, which appears on the first installment of Five Finger Death Punch‘s masterwork titled The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, released in July.
Later that night the band, Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar) and Chris Kael (bass), announced they would be returning to Europe next Spring for their most expansive headline tour of Europe yet. The tour kicks off with a performance at the just announced Bandit Rock Awards in Stockholm, Sweden on March 8, 2014. UK tour dates are as follow:

The band wrapped up their European arena tour with Avenged Sevenfold last night and finish the year in Russia with four headline shows. They kick off 2014 at Florida’s ShipRocked in January, before heading over to Australia for the Soundwave Festival.
