Chicago hard rockers DISTURBED return to Australia for the first time in eight years and will be performing their only Australian headline show in Adelaide. Insidious, infectious and a band without comparison, DISTURBED have quietly claimed a place at the forefront of modern rock along with record-breaking success since first emerging out of Chicago at the turn of the century. With two Grammy nominations, millions of record sales and five consecutive #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, the latter of which places the quartet in the same rarefied air as Metallica, DISTURBED also wield a bulletproof catalogue that ranges from 2000’s ‘The Sickness’ through to 2018’s ‘Asylum’, 2018’s ‘Evolution’ and the triumph that was ‘Divisive’ in 2022.
Special guests are Florida mainstays WAGE WAR. Through an unwavering dedication to progression, WAGE WAR are ready to sharpen their patented hybrid of heavy pit-starting technicality and their hummable hypnotic melodies.
