Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin have filled in the dates and venues for their summer tour, which kicks off July 9 in Syracuse and plays 21 dates before wrapping August 13 in Houston. Alter Bridge and Saint Asonia will also be part of the trek.
It's part of a loaded year for Disturbed, which kicked off a world tour supporting its latest album, Immortalized, on February 10. Guitarist Dan Donegan tells us he and his bandmates plan to be living out of suitcases for the foreseeable future:
"It's gonna be a very busy year. I think there's a bunch of dates we still haven't announced yet, just purely on timing of things....It'll probably take us at least until the end of the year and maybe even a little bit into the following year. I'm not even sure yet. There's a lot of territories that we want to cover, that we need to cover and that's gonna take quite a bit of time to hit 'em all. So we have to get back to Australia, New Zealand. We would like to get back to South America as well; that's where we finished our last tour four and a half years ago, right before the hiatus. And more Canadian dates and of course Europe and a big summer tour of in the U.S. as well."
