    June 14, 2011 — Burbank, CA — Multi-platinum hard rock band Disturbed have toured all over the world since forming in 1996, but have never performed in South America…until now. For the first time in its long career, the Chicago quartet will visit the continent, performing shows in Bogota, Colombia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Santiago, Chile August 21 – August 27, 2011.

    “We are so excited to be playing in South America for the first time ever,” says Disturbed front man David Draiman.  “It’s been a long time coming and we can’t wait to rock the fans down there.”
     
    The shows come after Disturbed wraps up headlining this summer’s fourth annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The tour, which also features Godsmack and Megadeth on the main stage, will make a 26-date trek across the country beginning on July 9th in San Bernardino, CA. Tickets are now on-sale.

In addition, Disturbed has made for sale a previously unreleased song, entitled “3,” at their official website www.disturbed1.com. All proceeds from the sale of the track, which is available for $.99, go to benefit the Damien Echols Defense Fund, which pays for legal fees, forensic testing, and investigative fees for the three men known as the West Memphis Three who were unjustly convicted of murder in Arkansas in 1994.

Guys, you should really take a break from touring..
David's vocals are getting worse and we all see that he doesn't enjoy singing live. He doesn't have the energy he used to have.

Do you have any idea how long I've been waiting for a DISTURBED concert in Brazil only to find out that you guys are coming on a TUESDAY? Which means that I'll have to wait some more... very frustrating for any long time fan who works on weekdays and doesn't live in Sao Paulo. Maybe next time?
