Professionally filmed video footage of DISTURBED's stage show as part of the recently launched Uproar festival tour can be viewed below.DISTURBED kicked off its headlining stint on the very first Uproar tour on Tuesday (August 17) by unveiling its massive new stage show, which HardDrive Radio called "a total assault of the senses." The production features a tremendous amount of visuals on huge LED screens, state-of-the-art pyrotechnics and an opening film in which singer David Draiman is seen in an asylum before seeming to burst out of the screen and onto the stage. Guitarist Dan Donegen told The Pulse of Radio that he wouldn't be surprised if the band itself watched its own show during the first few gigs on the tour. "You might catch us a few times kind of turning our back to the crowd, with all due respect to them," he said. "We're still in awe of some of the production so we're gonna be turning around to kind of check out the set and certain key points as well, 'cause it's just — it's exciting. I mean, we feel like, you know, just little kids on Christmas morning, just the excitement of stepping it up to a whole new level." The Uproar Festival tour, which also stars AVENGED SEVENFOLD, STONE SOUR, HELLYEAH and HALESTORM, pulls into Buffalo, New York on Sunday (August 22). DISTURBED has just released a video for the title track from its new album, "Asylum", which arrives on August 31. The group will screen its new documentary, "Decade Of Disturbed", in selected theatres beginning on August 26.
