Disturbed descended upon Ridgefield, WA with a full 18,000 capacity show at Rv Inn Style Amphitheater. They hit the ground running with the collective intensity of a band that knows how to get a crowd into gear with full force. They presented a strong 20 song set to an extremely appreciative and enthusiastic crowd. The band gathered the material for this tour from most of their studio catalogue including their renowned Genesis cover song Land of Confusion. The bands highly anticipated Take Back Your Life Tour is a world tour on a grand scale with amazing pyrotechnics and fluctuating moving trusts that would wave simultaneously to their hits.
Anyway, keep reading below for more photos of Disturbed and my full review of the show. Be sure to check out the Official Disturbed Website for music, videos, news, and tickets for all upcoming tour dates. All images copyright and courtesy of Matt Walsh.
The band opened the show to a highly anticipating crowd with brilliant versions of Hey You, Stupify, and Ten Thousand Fists from their albums Divisive, The Sickness, and Ten Thousand Fists. Throughout the evening, the entire Ridgefield, WA crowd were relentlessly roaring their appreciation for the band. The band continued with Prayer from their Believe LP and a one, two punch with Are You Ready that was then followed with Bad Man. And then came an acoustic version of A Reason to Fight from their Evolution LP which highlighted the most touching and consoling audience participation of the night and had everyone in attendance in tears and cheers.
Disturbed finished their main set with Down with the Sickness and Inside the Fire. For their final song of the night, Inside The Fire offered up some of the most ingenious pyrotechnics that I personally have witnessed to date. It was quite impressive and undoubtedly astonishing with their stage presence.
It was a sight to behold. Disturbed is an incredible band with an equally positive message that makes you think about humanity and the world as a whole. They seem to remind us, the people, how we can always, and should be less selfish and more selfless in these trying times of our lives and in the current state of the world.
Do yourselves a favor and do not miss them when hitting your area on this current Take Back Your Life Tour along with support from Breaking Benjamin and Jinjer. You most definitely will not regret witnessing this amazing band performing hit after hit along with a thrilling pyrotechnical production that without a doubt will be a summer tour you won’t want to miss!!!
