MANDALAY BAY KICKS OFF UFC 148 WEEKEND WITH FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH
CONCERT PERFORMANCE AT MANDALAY BAY BEACH FRIDAY, JULY 6

Tickets Now on Sale
Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino will celebrate the July 4th holiday as well as another spectacular UFC event weekend in Las Vegas when it kicks off Metal Hammer’s Trespass America Festival with a Five Finger Death Punch hometown concert on the Mandalay Bay Beach stage Friday, July 6 at 9 p.m. Tickets priced at $25, not including applicable service charges, are now on sale. For reservations, call the Mandalay Bay Box Office at (702) 632-7580.

The Mandalay Bay Beach stage rises over the Four Diamond resort’s signature sand and surf wave pool. Over the course of the past 12 years, this one-of-a-kind concert venue has hosted some of entertainment’s biggest names covering a wide range of musical genres.  Concertgoers are invited to bring their blankets, sit on the beach or wade in the surf while listening to the music from the cool confines of Mandalay Bay’s 1.6 million gallon wave pool.

Five Finger Death Punch, the heavy metal band hailing from Las Vegas, features Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jason Hook (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums) and Chris Kael (bass). The group released its third album, American Capitalist, in November 2011 and has morphed into the melodic heavy metal machine that they’ve been moving towards since the 2007 debut of The Way of the Fist. The band’s fans’ not only believe the sound is bigger, but better, and the music has become more intricate and infectious.

Since its formation in 2006, Five Finger Death Punch continues to progress in the face of all odds and opposition.  The Way of The Fist, the band’s first album, and 2009’s War is the Answer (second album) have both surpassed gold certification status. The two albums have spawned a combined nine consecutive Top 10 singles at Active Rock Radio with “Bad Company” peaking at No. 1 and “Far From Home” reaching No. 2.  Additional tracks have appeared on NBC’s “Criminal Minds” and on the video game “Madden 2012.”

The group has graced the cover of Revolver, Metal Hammer and numerous other tastemaker publications, earned four Revolver Golden Gods of Metal Awards and also performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” For more information about Five Finger Death Punch or the Trespass America Festival, visit www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com or www.trespassamerica.com.
