Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin Announce Co-Headline Tour

Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin today announced a co-headlining summer amphitheater tour. Produced by Live Nation, the two legendary rock bands will hit the road starting this July and will stop in more than 20 cities throughout North America, including Boston, Toronto, Houston, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Detroit. Alter Bridge and Saint Asonia will join the tour as special guests. More information on the tour, including dates and venues, will be announced over the coming weeks. Fans in NYC got a taste of the tour at Breaking Benjamin’s acoustic set last week, when Disturbed singer David Draiman surprised Ben Burnley and the band on stage for a rendition of the Queen and David Bowie classic “Under Pressure.” Check it out below.

Watch David Draiman and Breaking Benjamin perform “Under Pressure”:


Disturbed will kick off their first tour following their 4-year hiatus this Wednesday, February 10, just as their single “The Sound of Silence” is climbing up the charts. Their haunting take on the
Simon & Garfunkel classic is the #1 rock song on iTunes and has been in the Top 10 iTunes video chart for over a month, alongside the likes of Adele and Taylor Swift. The stunning black-and-white video has now surpassed 12 million views on YouTube, and the song is rapidly making its way to the top of the Rock Radio chart, following in the footsteps of recent No. 1 singles “The Vengeful One” and “The Light.”

Watch the video for Disturbed’s “The Sound of Silence”:


Formed in Chicago in 1996, the multi-platinum Disturbed – David Draiman [vocals], Dan Donegan [guitar], Mike Wengren [drums], and John Moyer [bass] – have sold over 15 million albums globally and scored eleven No. 1 singles at Active Rock Radio. Their quadruple-platinum 2000 debut The Sickness formally announced their arrival as hard rock leaders, with that status solidified by their subsequent Grammy Award nomination as well as gold-, platinum- and double platinum-certified records. Immortalized marked the end of the group’s 4-year hiatus and became their fifth consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, a rare feat achieve by only one other hard rock band in the history of the chart: Metallica.

Disturbed will be on tour throughout 2016, including a sold out North American run, co-headline dates with Rob Zombie, and headlining slots at major festivals across the U.S., U.K., and Europe. See below for a full list of confirmed North American dates.
