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, with critics pointing 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 – clickHERE to watch Rafa Alcantara-directed clip with some of the tour’s highlights.
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 millionYouTube 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.
Prior to the upcoming North American tour, Disturbed will head overseas for an international run that kicks off April 18th at La Riviera in Madrid, then travels to Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, France, London, Glasgow and Manchester. They come back home for festival shows in Columbus (Sonic Temple Art & Music Fest) and Oklahoma (Rocklahoma), then back overseas for another slew of dates, including multiple concerts in Russia.
