Disturbed were forced to cancel their show at Regina’s Brandt Centre in Saskatchewan, Canada, last night due to a “vocal issue” affecting frontman David Draiman.

The band are on the road across North America in support of their latest studio album Evolution, which was released in October last year.

However, yesterday the band revealed on their website that the latest show on their schedule was off.

Disturbed said in a statement: “We regret to inform our fans that we will have to cancel tonight’s show, Wednesday, July 24, at Brandt Centre in Regina, due to a vocal issue. 

“At the recommendation of a doctor, David has been advised to rest and limit his vocal usage today to avoid any further damage.”

Disturbed’s headline set at Chaos AB on Friday evening is still scheduled to take place as planned.

Last month, Disturbed released the five-track EP Live From Alexandra Palace, London and shared a video for No More – a track taken from the Evolution album.
