SIXX:A.M. Members Join DISTURBED On Stage For U2, THE WHO Covers (Video)

SIXX:A.M. members Nikki Sixx and James Michael joined DISTURBED on stage on May 27 at this year's Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma to perform cover versions of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and THE WHO's "Baba O'Riley". Video footage of their renditions can be seen below.

DISTURBED has been a playing a few covers in its current set, including its take on SIMON & GARFUNKEL's "The Sound Of Silence", its hit 2006 version of GENESIS's "Land Of Confusion" and a late-set medley that includes NINE INCH NAILS' "Closer", "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", "Baba O'Riley" and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's "Killing In The Name". "I just thought it would be kind of fun to take a few big songs, classic songs, and get up there and have a moment that would take a fun little turn and pay a little tribute to a few bands in there that we're fans of," DISTURBED guitarist Dan Donegan told Billboard. "We always like messing around with a few little covers and just have fun with it. Because we're playing such a long set now it's just a nice little twist to get everyone singing and have them feel part of the show."

DISTURBED's sixth studio album, "Immortalized", was released last August.

The album debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, making it DISTURBED's fifth effort in a row to enter the chart at Number One, a feat shared only with METALLICA and DAVE MATTHEWS BAND.

DISTURBED kicked off a North American tour — its first in more than four years — on February 10 in Fargo.
