Disturbed Nixes U.S. Tour

Throat problems have forced Disturbed to cancel a short U.S. run scheduled to begin this week.

Lead singer David Draiman is suffering from a “serious throat condition,” according to the Boston Globe, which reports that doctors have ordered the frontman to stop performing for “at least four weeks.”

Markets affected include Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Boston, New York and Wallingford, Conn.

Ticket refunds are available at points of purchase.
