Disturbed Reschedule The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour For 2021
While Disturbed’s debut album The Sickness celebrated its 20th birthday in March this year, fans in the U.S. are going to have to now wait until 2021 to celebrate the anniversary at live shows.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Chicago metallers have postponed their summer 2020 The Sickness tour – which was also set to feature Staind and Bad Wolves – to next year, writing in a statement to fans:
“Hello Disturbed Ones! We hope you and your families are all doing well during this crazy time.

“We have waited as long as we possibly could to finalise the plans for our 20th anniversary of The Sickness summer tour. We had hoped that there would be some clear direction and guidelines on how mass gatherings would be conducted this summer. Unfortunately, that clarity has not come and out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to reschedule for next summer. We are working to get these dates rescheduled and look forward to sharing an update soon.
“At the time the dates are rescheduled, refund options will become available, for further details visit LiveNation.com/refund. Thank you for understanding. Please stay safe and we can’t wait to rock.”
Guess we’ll all get down with the sickness next summer, then. But hopefully not literally…
