DISTURBED Will Tour Less Frequently Than In The Past, Says DAVID DRAIMAN

David Draiman has revealed that DISTURBED will no longer tour at the frequency he and his bandmates were known for in the past. Speaking about the group's upcoming "Evolution" trek, which is scheduled to kick off January 9 in San Diego, California, the singer told KROCK host Rainman: "One thing I will caution everyone on is because we're doing this tour the way that we are, because we're doing arenas on our own, because we're doing the two-hour-long set, because we're targeting things the way that we are, it's not gonna be as frequent as DISTURBED used to be. So when it does happen, come, 'cause it may not be a year or two or three till we see you. So, come on out — be a part of it. Let's make it a night to remember."

He continued: "The days of just the machine rolling and rolling and rolling are just past where we're at as people, as individuals. We're all family men now, and there's a yin and yang. And not only that — but it'll end up being healthier for everybody. I think that instead of people's expectation that we're coming around more often, if they view that we're not coming around as often, then each time we do, it really becomes a celebration, it really becomes an event for everyone — like a big family reunion. So I think it'll end up working out for the best."

DISTURBED's North American tour will make stops in cities like Denver, Houston, Nashville, New York, Pittsburgh, and Toronto before wrapping up in Rosemont, Illinois on March 8. Support on the 27-city jaunt will come from Canada's THREE DAYS GRACE.

Following the U.S. leg of the tour, DISTURBED will travel overseas to play in Spain, Czech Republic, Italy, and more countries throughout Europe. Their last slated show, as of right now, is on May 14 in Manchester, England.
