There was going to be this BIG announcement by Disturbed on Sunday at 6pm CST about who would be joining them on their Music as a Weapon 5 tour, tentatively scheduled to start sometime after the first of the year.
Then this was posted in the Disturbed forum I’m part of:
According to the web site of the Main Street Armory in Rochester, New York, the lineup of DISTURBED’s fifth “Music As A Weapon” tour will also feature KORN and SEVENDUST and will hit the venue on January 19, 2011. Tickets go on sale on Saturday, November 27 at 12 p.m. (noon) at all Ticketmaster locations.
DISTURBED frontman David Draiman hinted in a recent interview that the trek’s co-headliner will be “massive,” explaining that “it’s going to be appearing in a union that I think hard rock and heavy metal fans have been wanting to happen for awhile. It has happened before, but only in brief stints. Now it’s gonna happen for the duration of a two-leg-long tour. And we’re gonna join forces with a leviathan. And we’re really looking forward to it.”
Previous Music As A Weapon lineups have included CHEVELLE, STONE SOUR, DROWNING POOL, ALTER BRIDGE and others.
DISTURBED’s U.S. tour was recently canceled because Draiman was diagnosed with a serious throat condition. The band is currently headlining the “Taste Of Chaos” tour of Europe.
Oops, someone jumped the gun a little early!
We’ll see what happens Sunday. Maybe they’ll announce where the tour will stop (besides Rochester, NY). I hope there’s a date in Oklahoma City or Tulsa. I really don’t want to drive somewhere like Dallas or Kansas City… I will if that’s where they are… but the MAAW tours usually stop in OKC, so we shall see.
Weapon 5: I. Am. SO. THERE!
