Disturbed is currently out on their Evolution World Tour, in support of their seventh studio album, of the same name, released last fall. Joining them on this North American leg of the tour is Three Days Grace, who also released a new album, Outsider, last year.

Three Days Grace have been releasing a new album every three years since 2003. Last year’s Outsider was their sixth album, and their second with their new vocalist, Matt Walst. Their show focused mostly on the older material, which is not surprising, given the number of huge hits the band has had, but they did feature a handful of newer songs, such as “Infra-Red” and “Painkiller.” Getting a new singer can be a huge change for a band, especially one at the level of Three Days Grace, but they had the crowd engaged from the get-go, and put on a powerful performance.

Disturbed hit the stage after an intro video showing highlights through the years of their career. As the video reached the end, it focused on the title of their recently released album, Evolution, showing how the band has evolved over the years. From the start of “Are You Ready,” it was clear this band has not lost a beat over the years. Singer David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, bassist John Moyer and drummer Mike Wengren, are all older, and more gray, perhaps, but still just as heavy and strong as ever.

Over the course of their career, Disturbed has had 21 singles hit the Top 10, and as the show continues on, you realize just how many hits they’ve had. “Prayer” and “The Game” were just a couple of my favorites in the show. Disturbed has also been known for covering songs and making their own hit version of it. Both their 2006 cover of Genesis’ “Land of Confusion,” and their 2015 cover of Simon & Garfunkle’s “The Sound of Silence,” hit number 1 on the charts, and both were played tonight. For “The Sound of Silence,” guitarist Dan Donegan played a grand piano that appeared in the middle to of a fog-filled stage.

It seems like just yesterday that Disturbed announced they were taking a hiatus (it was seven years ago), and their future seemed uncertain. The band tonight showed tonight, however, that they aren’t going anywhere, and will continue bringing their unique brand of heavy metal to the people.
