DISTURBED LAUNCH MUSIC AS A WEAPON IV FESTIVAL

brian1bumberywbrcom_174555_img_0802_phixr.jpgFresh off their headlining North American tour in support of their platinum album Indestructible, Grammy-nominated hard-rock band Disturbed will launch the Music As A Weapon IV Tour–a music, tattoo, and lifestyle festival–presented by Samsung Mobile and powered by Sprint.

Although the Chicago quartet conceived Music As A Weapon in 2001 and have headlined the previous three tours, this is the first time that it has been expanded into a complete lifestyle festival. In addition to presenting the best in rock music, Music As A Weapon IV also features a collection of the greatest tattoo artists from around the country offering their talents to attendees in each city, including the world-famous Oliver Peck (seen on Miami Ink and Bam’s Unholy Union on MTV), Las Vegas’ Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company (founded by freestyle motocross legend Carey Hart).     Attendees will also be able to check out an extreme sports complex where freestyle motocross, BMX, and Skate teams will perform, a Technology and Gaming Zone, and a Vendor Village, all for a fan-friendly ticket price.
