Disturbed show in Arizona cancelled at last minute due to excessive heat

Soaring temperatures wreaked havoc on Disturbed’s equipment in Phoenix, leading to late cancellation



Disturbed fans were left disappointed when the band pulled the plug on a show in Phoenix, Arizona, at the very last minute.

The band were due to perform at the Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre in Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday night (July 23), with doors scheduled to open at 6.30pm.

But just before 7pm, Disturbed announced on social media that extreme temperatures had caused problems with their equipment and that the show would have to be rescheduled.

They said: “Tonight’s Disturbed show will be postponed. Due to the excessive heat, the band’s equipment is not working properly. Please hold on to your tickets, and stay tuned for a rescheduled date.”

When asked by fans why they waited so long to pull the plug, frontman David Draiman explained: “We were still trying to make everything work. None of our equipment would power up. I’m devastated.”

Local news outlets reported that temperatures in Phoenix reached a sweltering 116°F (46°C) on Saturday.

Disturbed are on the summer leg of their Take Back Your Life tour, with Breaking Benjamin and Jinjer in support. 

Disturbed released their eighth album, Divisive, last year. Draiman described the album as “about 90% heavy as fuck” and “10% of caring, loving goodness.”

The reaming dates on the Take Back Your Life tour can be viewed below.

Meanwhile, W.A.S.P. have cancelled their entire 2023 US tour due to back injuries suffered by singer Blackie Lawless during the European leg of their 40th Anniversary Tour.

Lawless says: “The extent of the trauma I endured on the 2023 European Tour was far greater than originally diagnosed and surgery will now be needed to correct the problem.”
