Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5 Tour Rocks The Sun

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Headliners Disturbed & Korn perform live in the Arena on January 28th with special guests Sevendust & In This Moment.

In what promises to be the hottest tour of winter 2011, Disturbed & Korn, two of Rock’s biggest acts, are teaming up to co-headline this year’s Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5 Tour.  The tour will be stopping by Mohegan Sun for a performance in the Arena on Friday, January 28th at 7:30pm with special guests Sevendust & In This Moment.

Tickets are $39.50 (with a $5.00 discount on the first 200 tickets purchased) and go on sale Saturday, December 4th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge by Phone number 1.800.745.3000 or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Sunday, December 5th, subject to availability. 

Jonathan Davis of Korn and David Draiman of Disturbed on how the fourty-five city trek across America came about:

“We’ve both just finished great tours. We headlined Mayhem and Disturbed headlined Uproar. The Disturbed guys came out to see us play in Chicago and we got to talking about doing something together. We both agreed that as cool as those types of tours are, they usually only hit major markets, and we both agreed that a lot of our fans just don’t live in those cities, so we thought it would be cool to team up, put a big show together, and hit every great place that those big tours never get to. Besides all that, with us and Disturbed together, doing full shows with full production…all I can say is IT’S ON!”, said the excited Korn frontman.

“We are thrilled to launch the Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5 Tour with our good friends from Korn,” says Disturbed’s singer David Draiman. “Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by having Korn co-headline, we really think it’s going to be our best tour yet. When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. It’s exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over on some of the other larger Rock tours that only hit the major markets. We have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a show that they deserve.”

On August 31, 2010, Disturbed released their fifth studio album Asylum, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart. Asylum is the band’s fourth consecutive studio album to debut at #1, a feat achieved by only two other Rock groups in history: Metallica and the Dave Matthews Band. An international hit with Top 10 chart bows across the globe, Asylum has earned critical praise from USA Today, which called it “a tight, sharp-riffed ride…the combo of aggressive roar and guitar grace recalls Metallica’s finest moments,” and the New York Daily News, which declared “On Asylum, Disturbed finely weighs power and delicacy, catchiness and punch. The subtle variety of the band’s tunesmanship, and the buoyancy of their rhythms, that makes this hard group so easy to love.”

Over the last sixteen years, Korn have established themselves as one of the biggest bands in the history of Hard Rock and Metal, selling over thirty million albums worldwide. Their latest album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, on RoadRunner Records, debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts this year, where Metal Hammer said fans would be “wiping away tears of recognition and delight when they blast it for the first, second, and 38th time.”

Mohegan Sun Arena was ranked the 4th busiest venue in 2009 by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.
