“People never lose their desire for aggressive music. And we’re happy to keep giving it to them.”

– David Draiman, Disturbed

Music fans rejoice – The Frontier Touring Company is thrilled to announce the return of Disturbed to Australia and New Zealand in September. Support for this tour will come from P.O.D. (excluding Perth and Adelaide), Alter Bridge, Behind Crimson Eyes (AUS only) and redline (NZ only).

Over their 12 year lifespan in the music industry Disturbed have reached the highs most bands only dream of. Selling in excess of ten million albums worldwide, Disturbed’s renaissance has truly begun following the release of their fourth album Indestructible (out now through Warner Music).

Front man, David Draiman announced of Indestructible: “I don’t want to sound arrogant but I think we’ve made the kind of record the industry needs right now.” And the fans have agreed. Defying current trends, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard, ARIA and RIANZ charts. Indestructible is the group’s darkest and angriest output to date; a result of experimentation in the studio and the band taking control of production duties.

Renowned for their fierce live performances, Disturbed are sure to set the stage alight when they hit major cities across Australia and New Zealand this August / September.

P.O.D. will return to Australia and New Zealand in support of their latest release When Angels & Serpents Dance. With an impressive seven studio albums and over seven million album sales under their belt, not to mention hits like ‘Youth of the Nation’, ‘Alive’ and ‘Addicted’, P.O.D. (aka Payable On Death) will stun you with their sheer ferocity this September!

Alter Bridge rose from the ashes of the multiplatinum selling Creed when they disbanded in 2004. They found success following the release of debut album One Day Remains with ‘Metalingus’ chosen as the theme song for the Rated R Superstar, Edge. Release of their sophomore record Blackbird is a heavier affair and has drawn the band further success debuting at #4 on the Billboard Rock Album chart. Get ready to rock with Alter Bridge this year!

Australian fans will be treated to stylings of Behind Crimson Eyes. Building a reputation through solid touring around the country, Behind Crimson Eyes quickly established themselves as one of Australia’s premier metal acts. Having supported the likes of Iron Maiden, Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold, you can be sure Behind Crimson Eyes will match it with the world’s best this year.

redline will kick off proceedings in New Zealand. Having previously opened for Disturbed, these boys will feel at home on the arena stages. The release of their debut record Trapped Inside saw redline establish themselves as one of New Zealand’s most progressive rock bands. Having supported Evanescence, The Bleeders and performing at the inaugural Metal Day Out Festival, redline will bring it this year.



After selling out in a matter of days, Disturbed’s forthcoming concert at Metro City has been moved to Challenge Stadium to meet demand. The show will still take place on Friday 29 August.

All General Admission tickets for the Metro City concert will remain valid for General Admission at Challenge Stadium. Current ticket holders do not need to exchange their tickets. Just turn up on the night to gain admittance. The event will no longer be restricted to 18+ and will be an all ages event.

Remaining tickets will go on sale at 9am this Friday August 1.

Disturbed return to Australia in support of their ARIA #1 album Indestructible (out now through Warner Music). They bring with them Alter Bridge and local metal heroes Behind Crimson Eyes.

Tickets to all shows are selling extremely fast, and with Perth fans leading the pack, there’s no doubt this further allocation of tickets will be snapped up quickly.

Tickets on sale Friday August 1 through Ticketmaster.
