Disturbed announces Evolution World Tour

Arena tour has support by Three Days Grace

Two-time Grammy nominees Disturbed have announced the Evolution World Tour, an extensive international arena tour that kicks off January 9th in San Diego, CA, and will see the multi-platinum-selling rock band headlining venues across the U.S. and Canada with Three Days Grace supporting.

That run will be followed by an overseas trek that’ll see the band bringing their incendiary live show to Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, the Netherlands and the UK.

Tickets go on sale Friday, October 26th at 10 am local time. Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase U.S. pre-sale tickets beginning Monday, October 22nd at 10 am local time until Thursday, October 25th at 10 pm local time through Citi’s Private Pass program.

Disturbed (vocalist David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and bassist John Moyer) is touring in support of much-buzzed-about new album Evolution — which arrives October 19th and lead single “Are You Ready,” which hit No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart and has maintained that position for four consecutive weeks. The song, which is the band’s 12th No. 1 single and the fastest chart-climber of their career, has over five million Spotify streams and a companion video with more than five million YouTube views.

Evolution has been early drawing rave reviews from fans and critics alike, with Billboard declaring it, “their most diverse album ever and one of their best, on par with their 2002 hit album Believe.” Classic Rock wrote, “the title says it all…the band have embraced their own instincts, and as a result their credibility has soared on arguably their most convincing album since 2000’s The Sickness.” The Chicago Sun-Times said, “Evolution takes some of the biggest leaps of Disturbed’s career, with the unpredictability in David Draiman’s vocals, Mike Wengren’s drumming patterns, Dan Donegan’s dimensional guitar work and John Moyer’s low-down bass lines fully embodying the album’s title.” Music Week proclaimed, “Disturbed are ready to go stratospheric on their new album Evolution,” Metal Hammer wrote, “without a doubt the most diverse record in Disturbed’s catalogue,” and Power Play gave it a ten star review, gushing, “Disturbed have evolved into a superbly mature rock act, who, with this album, fully transcend from pure metal into pure greatness. This is a career-defining release. Nothing less.”

The Evolution World Tour will see the band playing an exhilarating mix of classic hits like “Down With The Sickness,” Inside The Fire” and “The Sound Of Silence” along with new tracks such as “Are You Ready” and the recently released “A Reason To Fight.”

The tour announcement follows last week’s intimate hometown show at Chicago’s Vic Theatre (a special performance that airs on SiriusXM’s Octane and Turbo Channels) and this past weekend’s set at the Austin City Limits Music Festival on a bill that featured Metallica, Lil Wayne, Justice and more.

On October 23rd and 24th, Disturbed will partner with the USO to perform for the Airmen at Creech and Nellis Air Force Bases in Indian Springs and Las Vegas, respectively.

In addition to the performances, the band will take part in USO morale engagements to visit Airmen where they work and learn more about the important missions at each base.

Disturbed recorded Evolution in Vegas with Kevin Churko, who produced their previous release, 2015’s Immortalized. That album became the band’s fifth consecutive No. 1 debut on the Billboard Top 200, earned a platinum certification, and yielded the triple-platinum crossover smash “The Sound of Silence.” The latter earned a Grammy nod for “Best Rock Performance.” Additionally, the band took home “Best Rock Artist” at the iHeartRadioMusic Awards and received acclaim from The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today, and more.
