Disturbed is touring in support of new album Evolution (Reprise Records), which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, as well as No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
Since launching the tour back in January with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Disturbed (vocalist David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bassist John Moyer) has drawn rave reviews for their emotionally powerful live show. Critics point out the band’s uplifting messages and the many moving moments that take place during their nightly set, including a tribute to the late Chester Bennington and Pantera’s Vinnie Paul and a call to help those in need who are battling addiction and depression – click HERE to watch Rafa Alcantara-directed clip with some of the tour’s highlights.
What The Press Is Saying About Disturbed’s Live Show
“…A positive uplifting concert” - “one of the best rock shows ever at the [Pinnacle Bank] Arena.”
- Lincoln Journal Star
“a unique night where the arena felt fully alive due to the bond between band and fans.”
- The Times
“Disturbed has become quite adept at being an arena rock band,” and called the band “a well-oiled big rock production with pyro, a mini-stage they use for an acoustic set and solos for all the musicians in the group. It’s the type of big rock show you only see a few times a year at Toyota Center, even rarer from acts that had a hit after the year 2000.”
- Houston Press
“Nineteen years into what’s been a mostly chart-topping recording career, the Chicago-formed group remains a prototype of what can be right about the its genre. During [their] two-hour, 19-song show Disturbed mixed its brand of brawn with musical sophistication and also showed just as much heart with a deeply felt message that, at appropriate times, even quieted the headbangers into intent listening. Disturbed has clearly, as its latest album title boasts, evolved during nearly two decades, and clearly for the better.”
- Oakland Press
“Classifying Disturbed as anything less than one of the biggest rock bands in the world is a rookie mistake. With hits that span all the way from the percussive growls of ‘Down With The Sickness’ to the lasting message of acoustic ballads like ‘A Reason To Fight,’ their range and depth is hard to deny. Even after diving into the calming thrill of acoustic songs and proving their versatility with Evolution, the Chicago rockers are staying true to their roots with a theatric performance decorated by stunning pyrotechnics, expert stage presences and booming vocals.”
Evolution’s success has been fueled by overwhelming fan response to tracks like blockbuster lead single “Are You Ready” (which has over 19 million Spotify streams and a companion video with more than 11 million YouTube views) and the lyrically poignant “A Reason To Fight" (almost 10 million Spotify streams and close to 9 million YouTube views). The latter was directed by Matt Mahurin (U2, Metallica), who previously collaborated with the band on the clip for their GRAMMY® nominated rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” a video that has over 504 million YouTube views to date.
