David Draiman Says Disturbed Aren’t Playing “The Sickness” In Full On Upcoming 20th Anniversary Tour

During a recent interview with Billboard, David Draiman confirmed that Disturbed won’t be performing “The Sickness” in full on their upcoming 20th anniversary tour. The frontman said the following:

“We won’t do the entire album, but we’re going to do a ton of Sickness material, deeper cuts, stuff people haven’t heard us play off the record for a while, and definitely a huge portion of material will be Sickness-oriented. You can’t, unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on how you look at it — as a band at our level, at this point of our career, you can’t just go out and play one record because everybody came on board at different stations. They want to hear what they fell in love with. There’s definitely new production elements that we’re toying with, that are elements that we’ve maybe used during The Sickness era, but that we’re doing in a new and more provocative way. That’s about all I can say.”

They stay in our memory, and I encourage each and every one of you to live everyday of your lives like it’s the last day of your life, making memories that last forever with the people you care about and love. Shine your light on this world everyone. Make memories that will last forever and cut through the darkness.”
