Disturbed, Chicago South-side natives returned back on August 21st, 2015. This was the return of the Heavy Metal giants after a four year hiatus, as noted on Disturbed's website and Facebook back on June 23, 2015. The concert in Chicago sold out immediately, David Draimen said, "less than four minutes," packing the House of Blues with more than 1300 lucky fans.It was great to welcome back for Chicago's Very Own warriors Disturbed; and with a brand new disc titled "Immoritilized" by Reprise Records (Warner Bros. Music). Disturbed performed a 24 song set. When the curtain came down opening up the show 'Ten Thousand Fists' (Ten Thousand Fists, 2005) and closing the night with 'Down With The Sickness' (The Sickness, 2000). I thought Immortalized would dominate the set list but it was a fair balance from all six albums. It was a long night coming for Chicago, heavy metal fans, House of Blues Chicago, and Disturbed.

They kept it secret and recorded the disc in Las Vegas, NV.

Good to see the Chicago’s very own Heavy Metal Kings Disturbed back with a new disk that will surprise if you have not purchased it. One thing, early in the concert David Draimen told the fans, “anyway you got the album as long as you have it.”
