Disturbed has partnered with the USO to give special performances for the airmen at Creech and Nellis air force bases in Indian Springs and Las Vegas, respectively, on October 23 and 24. In addition to the performances, the band will take part in USO morale engagements to visit Airmen where they work and learn more about the important missions at each base.
“We are honored every time we are able to perform for our troops and pay our respects to our service men and women,” says Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan. “They sacrifice so much for their love of our country and we look forward to partnering with the USO for the first time as a Force Behind the Forces to bring them a moment of escape from all that they do for us on a daily basis!”
“Disturbed has an enthusiastic military fan base, and we at the USO are excited to bring them directly to the fans who appreciate them so much,” says Mari Villalobos, the USO’s director of entertainment relationships. “We hope this will be the first of many partnerships with them and other Warner Bros. Records artists as we continue to keep service members connected to family, home and country.”
Disturbed will perform an electrifying mix of classic tracks and new hits, including “Are You Ready”, which recently shot to No. 1 at rock radio, becoming the band’s 12th No. 1 single and the fastest chart-climber of their career.
