The recent Theory of A Deadman and Disturbed Concert in Edmonton on May 11, 2023, marked a memorable night for both bands and the crowd. It was an epic show that left concert-goers buzzing with excitement, overwhelmed with emotions, and stunned by the spectacular performances on stage.
Helping with Mental Health
But it wasn’t just the music that made this concert unforgettable; it was the touching story of a woman who lost her husband to suicide and how Disturbed’s music helped her stay alive that made the night one for the books.
David Draiman, the lead singer of Disturbed, invited the woman on stage to share her story. The crowd fell silent as she bravely recounted her journey of grief and how listening to Disturbed’s music gave her hope and kept her alive.
David Draiman opened up and shared part of his story about mental health and had the crowd raise their hands “By a show of hands, how many of you have dealt with the demons of addiction and depression yourself, or know someone who has? Now take a look around this arena, as you can see my friends, you are not alone.”
