disturbedThis summer, prepare to get down with the sickeness (hopefully not coronavirus). Again.
Nu-metal giants Disturbed are hitting the road for a major summer tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album The Sickness with a stop at Jones Beach on Thur, Aug 6, 2020 - tix:

Disturbed, led by singer David Draiman, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its 2000 debut, “The Sickness.” The heavy metal band’s hits include “Down with the Sickness,” “Stupify,” “Ten Thousand Fists," “Another Way to Die" and a cover of “The Sound of Silence.” This amphitheater tour, with very special guest STAIND and BAD WOLVES, celebrates the two-decade anniversary of the band’s seminal album "The Sickness". On this tour, the band will perform songs off the album, as well as tracks from their most recent studio release, "Evolution", and their extensive catalog. "The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour" will run from mid-July through mid-September..

Sweetening the lineup (for some, at least) is another huge neo-grunge group from that era: Staind. While frontman Aaron Lewis has played multiple shows around here in the last few years, this will actually be Staind’s first Tampa Bay show since 2012. Bad Wolves will open. Staind, featuring singer Aaron Lewis, is known for songs like “It’s Been Awhile,” “So Far Away” and “Right Here.” Bad Wolves formed in 2017 and first charted with a cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie.”

In 2010, DISTURBED celebrated the tenth anniversary of the release of "The Sickness" by reissuing it with exclusive b-sides and expanded artwork, as well as a first-time-ever vinyl edition.. Released on March 7, 2000, "The Sickness" is DISTURBED's best-selling album to date, thanks to such hit singles as "Stupify", "Voices" and "Down With The Sickness".. Guitarist Dan Donegan told The Pulse Of Radio that the band never expected "Down With The Sickness" or "The Sickness" to do as well as they did. "I think 'Down With The Sickness' was like the seventh most downloaded song that was recorded in the '90s," he said. "It was like in a list of like four Michael Jackson songs and NIRVANA's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and we were in the Top 10 of those songs. And I was just blown away by those statistics. Those are big numbers there. I mean, we're just overwhelmed to think that we could go from a garage band in the south side of Chicago to selling a lot of albums and having a fan base and making a career out of it." .. Last September, DISTURBED's "No More" landed at position No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart. The track, which was the third single from the band's 2018 album "Evolution", marked DISTURBED's seventh straight No. 1 on the chart... Each of DISTURBED's last seven singles has reached No. 1 on Mainstream Rock Songs, a feat unmatched by any artist.. DISTURBED has a total of 10 Mainstream Rock Songs No. 1s. THREE DAYS GRACE holds the record with 15 No. 1s, followed by SHINEDOWN at 14 and VAN HALEN with 13.

While musicologists will forever debate which track will go down as more historically significant, It’s Been Awhile or Down With the Sickness, there’s no doubt Disturbed has ascended to real rock-god status. Last year, their song No More became their seventh straight No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, a run that includes their improbable hit cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence.
