Five Finger Death Punch + Megadeth Bring Stacked Setlists to Tour Kickoff
On Friday (Aug. 19), Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth kicked off their national tour at RV Inn Style Resorts Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington, with support from Fire From The Gods and The Hu.
Five Finger Death Punch were celebrating the release of their new album AfterLife. Their 10-song set list included the live debut of the LP's "Times Like These," as well as their cover of "Bad Company," according to Setlist.fm.

Megadeth stuck to mostly oldies — but goodies — basically dashing the hopes of fans pininig for new tracks from their upcoming album, The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead!
With the effort's release just weeks away (Sept. 2) and three tracks already previewed ("Solider On!" "We'll Be Back" and "Night Stalkers"), it was interesting that Megadeth chose to forgo new stuff. A show is scheduled for Sept. 2, so maybe they're waiting for that date.
Instead, Megadeth stuck to a good chunk of 1990's Rust in Peace, with three of the nine songs hailing from that album, including the set's opener ("Hangar 18") and closer ("Holy Wars ... The Punishment Due"), according to Setlist.fm.
