Triple-platinum heavy metal band Disturbed will headline the Wind Creek Steel stage at PNC Plaza during this year’s Musikfest.

The group will perform on August 10. Tickets are on sale at musikfest.org.

Formed in Chicago in 1994, the four-man band has released seven studio albums, five of which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, a feat accomplished only by Metallica and The Dave Matthews Band. Led by vocal powerhouse David Draiman, Disturbed released two of their most recognizable songs “Down with the Sickness” and “Stupify” in the late 90s with the band’s 2000 quadruple-platinum debut album “The Sickness” launching them into Notoriety.

In 2015, the band released a cover of ‘The Sound of Silence’, featured on both their platinum studio album ‘Immortalized’ and ‘Live at Red Rocks’, earning multiple award nominations including a Grammy nomination. Awards for Best Rock Performance, and winning iHeartRadio’s Rock. Artist of the year in 2017.

The band toured extensively during their career, often headlining summer heavy metal tours like “Ozzfest” and “Mayhem Festival”. For their latest album, the band broke away from their signature sound with the release of “Evolution”.

The studio recording was split into two sections: “Ballad” and “Heavy”. The “Ballad” section featured acoustic guitar, piano, and even a didgeridoo for tracks like “A Reason to Fight.”

After the release, the band appealed to their die-hard fans to help them choose the lead single. “Are You Ready”, a song full of electronics and stadium-filling riffs on the “heavy” side was selected for release and was well received. The group has racked up 11 number one singles and sold over 16 million records worldwide.

Musikfest will take place from August 5 to 14. This year’s lineup includes Ja Rule & Ashanti, Kip Moore, Ziggy Marley – A Live Tribute to His Father, Olga Tañón, Counting Crows, Willie Nelson & Family, Kelsea Ballerini, Alabama and Poison.

This year’s ‘Fest also includes a preview party on August 4 with headliner Boyz II Men.
