Disturbed and Korn team up for Music As A Weapon tour

, Staff

Korn and Disturbed are teaming up to co-headline this year’s “Monster Energy Music As A Weapon” tour.” Joining them on hard-rocking tour will be Sevendust and In This Moment. The tour, which was created by Disturbed in 2001, will focus on smaller markets for its fifth edition. Here in New England, the tour will stop at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday, January 28. The tour will then stop at the Portland Civic Center in Maine on Saturday, January 29. Tickets are now on sale for both shows through Ticketmaster with the Connecticut show priced at $39.50 and the Maine show priced at $39.75.

“Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by having Korn co-headline, we really think it’s going to be our best tour yet,” said Disturbed’s singer David Draiman in a press release. “When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. It’s exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over on some of the other larger rock tours that only hit the major markets. We have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a show that they deserve.”

Following the show at Mohegan Sun Arena, the Music as Weapon tour will make its second and final stop in New England at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine on Saturday, January 29.

Disturbed will be touring in support of their fifth studio album, Asylum, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release last August. The album was the group’s fourth consecutive studio album to debut at #1, a feat achieved by only two other rock groups in history: Metallica and the Dave Matthews Band. Disturbed had been scheduled to play Boston’s House of Blues last October but that band’s tour was canceled after Draiman was diagnosed with a serious throat condition.

Korn on returning to the road to promote their new album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are. The album, their ninth studio effort, was produced by Ross Robinson, who previously worked on their band’s first two albums. It also marks the band’s first album with drummer Ray Luzier.
