Disturbed Ones! After a great deal of waiting, Disturbed has announced US and Canada dates for their Take Back Your Life Tour.

Of course there's a local date! July 16th they're playing White River Amphitheatre with Breaking Benjamin, and the tickets go on sale Friday at 10am!

I was able to grab a few minutes with frontman David Draiman to chat about FINALLY hitting the road again and making up for lost time. On the heels of the release of their 8th studio album Divisive, he spoke to the brutal honesty of its content and messaging, and the fact that it might be the band's most important album to date.

He went on to discuss his newfound friendship with PNW legend Ann Wilson of Heart, and linking up with her for a powerful and emotional duet called "Don't Tell Me". Will she be on hand to perform with Disturbed when their tour hits White River Amphitheatre on July 16th?!

We also chatted about the guest list of performers at Willie Nelson's 90th Birthday Party coming up in April, and that it was an obvious oversight leaving David Draiman off the list! As a cannabis connoisseur himself, he said one of his life goals is to share a few puffs with the 89-year-old jazz cabbage enthusiast. I agreed to start a petition, so get your pens ready, Rockaholics!

In the words of Disturbed, "Are You Ready" for the Take Back Your Life Tour? Tickets on sale this Friday, February 10th for the show at White River Amphitheatre on July 16th.

Happy Rocking,

Taryn Daly
