After a four year hiatus, Disturbed made a mighty return, kicking off their tour at Chicago’s House of Blues.
The atmosphere was electric as the House of Blues awaited the welcome return of one of their own. Primed and ready for a night of hard rock, the sold out venue was packed to the rafters well before Nonpoint took to the stage.
It’s rare that you see an opening act receive such a response, but the crowd were clearly feeding off the energy the band brought to their performance. The audience jumped along with Elias Soriano who was hurtling around the stage.
It was an exciting night for DisturbedÂ and their fans alike, being the band’s first live show in four years, as well as being the release day for their first album in five years. Clearly, Disturbed’s passion has not waned in their time away asÂ David Draiman’s powerful voice rang out across the Music Hall.
An energetic and powerful performance by the entire band provided the fans with exactly what they had been waiting for. Performing a mixture of songs from their new album, littered with hits from yesteryear, including “Stupify,” it’s surprising the House Of Blues is still standing after they closed out the night with their anthemic “Down With The Sickness.”
A triumphant and welcome return. It’s clear to see why only good things have been predicted for their new album, Immortalized.Â Fans, friends and family were all there to join in the celebration and return of a much loved band.
Here’s hoping they can keep up the same level of intensity during the rest of the tour and that Chicago doesn’t have to wait so long for them to come back around again.
