Disturbed cancel European tour

Singer David Draiman has severely inflamed vocal chords

Disturbed have been forced to cancel their European tour.

The band have pulled the remaining dates on the trek after singer David Draiman was diagnosed with a severe inflammation of the vocal chords.

Draiman has been advised by a throat specialist in London to completely rest his voice until he receives a clean bill of health.


He has now travelled back to Los Angeles to receive further specialist treatment.

A statement from the band said: “Please note that all cancelled shows will be rescheduled and the new dates will be announced as soon as they’re confirmed. Fans are asked to keep hold of their tickets as the dates are likely to be set for next March.”

Disturbed were in London for a sold-out show at the Astoria last Thursday (October 13).

The cancelled tour dates are:

Manchester Academy (October 17)

Berlin S036 (19)


Nuremburg Lowensaal (20)

Munich Eslerzusatzhalle (22)

Cologne Live Music Hall (23)

Amsterdam Paradiso (24)

Hamburg Markthalle (26)
