Audio editing question: removing an unwanted cough from a soundtrack

Hi all--I'm hoping someone might be able to guide me in the right direction to resolve this problem. I want to make a vid with a piece of music that is only available in live performance. The live performance that I want to use includes someone coughing at a couple of inopportune times; I really want those coughs out of there. I'm editing on a mac with Final Cut Pro, but I'm assuming I'd need other software to resolve this (though I'd love it if this turns out to be something I could resolve on FCP). Anyone have any advice or wisdom about how to remove the offending coughs?

Thank you in advance! I could provide links and timecodes to the performance and coughs if that's helpful...
