Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin will kick off their co-headlining summer tour at the Lakeview Amphitheater in Syracuse, NY, on July 9. The tour will include stops in more than 20 cities across North America. Alter Bridge and Saint Asonia will join as special guests.
Disturbed, who recently kicked off their first tour following a four-year hiatus, is enjoying a resurgence in popularity thanks to their cover of the Simon and Garfunkel song “The Sound of Silence” off their 2015 album Immortalized. “The Sound of Silence” is the band’s second single to go platinum. “Down with the Sickness” was the band’s first from their four-time platinum debut album The Sickness.
Co-headliner Breaking Benjamin also released a new album in 2015, Dark Before Dawn. The album reached number one on both the Billboard 200 and the alternative and rock charts. The album proves that the newly formed Breaking Benjamin lineup is still strong and can produce hit singles with “Failure” and “Angels Fall.”
Fans in New York City were treated to a preview of the tour at a Breaking Benjamin acoustic performance in February where Disturbed frontman David Draiman jumped onstage to perform the Queen and David Bowie cover of “Under Pressure.” If this is any indication of what to expect on this tour, you won’t want to miss it.
