FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH performed for the first time in a year and a half last night (Friday, August 20) at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
After the show, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH bassist Chris Kael took to his Instagram to share a few onstage and backstage photos from the event and he wrote in an accompanying message: "Iowa! Thank you. Such an incredible crowd to have performed in front of for the first time in a year and a half! For once, I don't have the words other than simply repeating, 'Thank you.' So, thank you! #ShitYesSon #BassPackagePicturesComingTomorrow #DesMoines #ForJoey".
