Five Finger Death Punch Cancel Milan, Italy Show After Allegedly Being Targeted by ISIS
The fallout from the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13 continues…
Five Finger Death Punch cancelled last night’s concert in Milan, Italy after OpParisIntel, a subdivision of the “hacktivist” group Anonymous, claimed that it was one of several public events being targeted for ISIS’ next attack. Although Anonymous proper distanced itself from the claims…
We did not spread any rumors about possible future ISIS attacks, and frankly, we do not know where the rumors come from.

…the band opted to play it safe:
As much as I loathe Five Finger Death Punch’s music, you really can’t blame them for being cautious. In lieu of how many American bands fled Europe following the attacks, you have to five FFDP some credit for even just remaining on the continent and trying to continue their tour. Milan is a beautiful city with wonderful people, and it sucks that these fans had to miss out… but I’m sure FFDP will return ASAP and make it up to them.
In the meantime, fuck ISIS. I just thought that was worth saying again: FUCK ISIS.
