Known to mix thrash, alt rock and classic metal with a killer on-stage performance, Five Finger Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is set to rock the Iowa State Fair Grandstand Concert Series presented by Homemakers Furniture on August 20, 2021.

Described by the music industry as “not your grandmother’s band,” they are one of the most successful groove metal bands and a staple of the Billboard charts since their formation in 2005. Taking their name from the cult martial arts film “Five Fingers of Death,” the group’s titanic riffs and darkly skewed lyrics deliver a brand of vintage thrash and blazing metal as powerful as their name.

The Iowa State Fair Grandstand just got a little louder and darker with more metal. Five Finger Death Punch, Friday, August 20, at 8:00 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 29, 2021, at 10:00 a.m.
