Disturbed partners with USO for service shows

Band to perform shows at Creech and Nellis Air Force Bases, visit Airmen

Multi-platinum performing artists Disturbed have partnered with the USO for the first time and visit Airmen at Creech and Nellis Air Force Bases. Each visit will allow the band to engage Airmen at their places of work and to meet Airmen and their family members during meet and greets. In addition, the band will perform for military ID cardholders and their guests. Performances will include material from their new album Evolution, releasing October 19th via Reprise Records.

Vocalist David Draiman, bassist Guitarist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren will perform on October 22nd and 23rd to express their deep appreciation for service members. That appreciation led to a partnership with the USO to visit service members and perform their newest material during a two-day break in their schedule.

“We are honored every time we are able to perform for our troops and pay our respects to our service men and women,” Donegan states. “They sacrifice so much for their love of our country, and we look forward to partnering with the USO for the first time as a Force Behind the Forces to bring them a moment of escape from all that they do for us on a daily basis!”

“Disturbed has an enthusiastic military fan base, and we at the USO are excited to bring them directly to the fans who appreciate them so much,” comments Mari Villalobos, Director, Entertainment Relationships. “We hope this will be the first of many partnerships with them and other Warner Brothers Records artists as we continue to keep service members connected to family, home and country.”

The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. At hundreds of locations worldwide, we are united in our commitment to connect our service members and their families through countless acts of caring, comfort, and support. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization, not a government agency. Our programs, services and entertainment tours are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners, and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
