Disturbed has announced the band will perform in Israel for the first time this summer.
Draiman said: “Shalom, we are Disturbed and we will be at Rishon Lezion’s Live Park on July 2nd.”
“I love the direct connections to our history here,” he continued. “I love how you can go skiing in the snow on the Hermon and go diving in Eilat. If you want to celebrate, then you have the Ibiza of the Middle East — Tel Aviv and if you want a little culture and history you have Jerusalem.
“I love so many things about Israel. You can’t not feel something when you’re here, there is definitely a spirituality that can’t be felt anywhere else in the world.”
Both of Draiman’s maternal grandparents were survivors of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, while many others on his mother’s side were wiped out by the Nazis.
