Disturbed Cancel The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour
Disturbed have canceled their summer tour, which was intended to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough album, The Sickness.
The trek was initially announced in January 2020 for the following July, but was postponed for a year due to the pandemic. Support would have come from Staind and Bad Wolves.
Says the band in a statement:
“Disturbed Ones – It is with great disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour dates that were rescheduled for this summer. We, like all of you, were very much looking forward to rocking out together again, after a year’s delay. We’ve waited to see if we could play the shows and by now, we had hoped there would be more clarity and a clearer direction as how to make this possible.
“Unfortunately, as the tour takes us to different cities and states with a variety of unclear restrictions, it becomes unfeasible to move forward. We felt waiting any longer and canceling last minute, especially after you all have waited this long, would be unfair. For those who purchased tickets, there is nothing further you need to do – refunds will automatically be issued at your point of purchase.
“We want to thank all our fans for your wonderful support, and we look forward to the time when we can all be together.”
Notably, the outbreak of the pandemic last March prompted a surge in sales and streams of “Down with the Sickness.”
Disturbed’s most recent single — a cover of Sting’s “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You” — was released in September.
