For the first time in years, Disturbed came back to Baltimore. They brought Nonpoint with them when they came to Baltimore Soundstage on April 1st.
Nonpoint started their set right at 8. Their 45 minute set included three songs off of their newest album, The Return, which was released in 2014. The band pulled the audience into the show, encouraging them to sing along and pointing to members who were already doing so. Nonpoint included a cover of Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight,” in their set, getting even more of the crowd warmed up. They ended their performance with “Bullet With A Name,” a song that many fans were excited to hear performed live.
About half an hour after Nonpoint’s set ended, Disturbed took the stage. Before they even started, fans were excited, yelling and chanting in anticipation of what was to come. After the bright lights on the stage turned on, the band launched into their first song, “Ten Thousand Fists.” The crowd immediately got into the music, with even a security guard throwing his fist up into the air. The band slowed things down for an acoustic performance of “Darkness” and a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.” Lead singer David Draiman told the audience to check out Disturbed’s recent performance of that song on Conan. Draiman also mentioned that he had recently gotten an email from Paul Simon himself, complimenting him on the band’s performance. Before beginning their last song before their encore, “Indestructible”, Draiman introduced it by saying “we’re one big family. Together we can face anything. We’re indestructible.” Disturbed’s encore consisted of “Voices” and “Down With The Sickness,” both off of their debut first album, The Sickness. After the music stopped, the band took a group photo with the crowd and thanked them for a good night.
