After being forced to cancel their show last night at Duluth Entertainment Convention Center’s Amsoil Arena for a medical emergency involving Jason Hook, Five Finger Death Punch have revealed the reasoning behind the emergency cancellation.
Guitarist Jason Hook desperately needed his gallbladder removed, after experiencing pain that prompted two visits to the emergency room, the pain didn’t stop however as during a third visit to the emergency room, Doctor determined that Hook needed to have his gallbladder removed due to a blockage, a rep told TMZ.
TMZ has been told that Hook got the surgery on Thursday night, just hours after the bands canceled performance in Duluth, MN and that the band was by his side showing their support. He is expected to fully recover.
The band made a statement on their social media saying:
“Last night, Jason Hook was taken to the emergency room where it was determined his gallbladder needed to be removed. Jason underwent surgery successfully but will have to remain in the hospital until his doctors determine he is fit to be discharged and travel home.
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!”
