Five Finger Death Punch’s Jason Hook posted a photo from the hospital after undergoing gallbladder surgery. The band has now postponed the final three dates of their U.S. tour.

The first postponement came when the band canceled a Dec. 12 show in Duluth, Minnesota; at the time, Hook was reported to have suffered a “medical emergency.” In his Instagram post, the guitarist discussed the situation and told fans that Five Finger Death Punch will make up the shows they missed, which now includes the originally scheduled stops on Dec. 14 in Nebraska and December 15 in Iowa.

“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”

Five Finger Death Punch’s next album is due out February 28, 2020 and are slated to kick off a European tour next month, before returning to the U.S. in April. Get their tour dates here.
