FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's JASON HOOK Checks In After Gallbladder Surgery: 'Well, That Sucked'


FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's JASON HOOK Checks In After Gallbladder Surgery: 'Well, That Sucked'
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s Jason Hook has thanked fans for ther support after undergoing surgery to have his gallbladder removed.

Hook‘s operation took place Thursday night, just hours after the band was forced to postpone a show in Duluth, Minnesota. The final two concerts of FIVE FINGER‘s fall 2019 tour were also postponed: Saturday (December 14) at CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska and Sunday (December 15) at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.

Late Friday night (December 13), Hook took to his social media to share a post-surgery photo of him in a hospital bed and included the following message: “Well that sucked! Gallbladder went #kaput … sorry Duluth MN, some things you just can’t control… We’ll be back to kick some ass, and make up the other dates as soon as we can! I very much appreciate all the kind notes of caring and support one thing I know for sure is we have the greatest fan base of all time! Long live the #knuckleheads ~ Hook #fivefingerdeathpunch @5fdp”

A representative for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH told TMZ that the guitarist had been experiencing pain that prompted two visits to the emergency room. Finally, during a third ER visit, doctors determined Jason needed to have his gallbladder removed due to blockage.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has since issued a statement saying that Jason “will have to remain in the hospital until his doctors determine he is fit to be discharged and travel home.”

The band added: “Jason‘s healing is our #1 priority. As a result, the last three shows of this current tour will be postponed, however, we are working on coming back to play Duluth, Omaha and Des Moines very soon. Once we have an update on new dates to return, we will post the information on our website and social media channels. Please hold on to your tickets in the meantime. Jason very much appreciates all the well wishes and, rest assured, we will see you back out on the road very soon!”

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will release its eighth album, “F8”, on February 28.

The band recently announced the dates for a new spring North American tour. The trek kicks off on April 8 in Sunrise, Florida, winding down on May 20 in St. Paul, Minnesota. PAPA ROACH, I PREVAIL and ICE NINE KILLS will join FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH on the upcoming road trip.
