The Boston Globe reports that DISTURBED's previously announced U.S. tour has been canceled because the band's lead singer, David Draiman, has been diagnosed with a serious throat condition.

According to tour promoter LiveNation, the unspecified "condition" is not permanent, but Draiman must stop performing for at least four weeks in order for it to heal. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Draiman in 2006 underwent successful surgery to fix a deviated septum which was making breathing difficult and affecting his vocal abilities on stage.

Draiman told a California radio station last month that the band will be doing two legs of its Music As A Weapon tour in 2011. Draiman did not reveal the lineup, but said, "The co-headliner for the tour [rumored to be KORN. — Ed.] is massive. And it's going to be appearing in a union that I think hard rock and heavy metal fans have been wanting to happen for awhile. It has happened before, but only in brief stints. Now it's gonna happen for the duration of a two-leg-long tour. And we're gonna join forces with a leviathan. And we're really looking forward to it."

Previous Music As A Weapon lineups have included CHEVELLE, STONE SOUR, DROWNING POOL, ALTER BRIDGE and others.

DISTURBED's fifth studio album, "Asylum", arrived on August 31 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart, the fourth consecutive release from the group to do so.

Disturbed cancels upcoming U.S. tour so frontman David Draiman can undergo treatment for a serious throat condition. The illness is not thought to be permanent, but Draiman has been told he must stop performing for at least four weeks in order for him to fully heal, according to the Boston Globe. It is not known if Draiman's condition is linked to his past problems - in 2006 he underwent successful surgery to fix a deviated septum which was making breathing difficult and affecting his vocals.

i really don't think so

he's been taking care of himself, with what he drinks and eats and how much he sleeps and things like that for a long time now, he's at the beginning of a tour cycle, he knows the risks, he wouldn't do that

Hearing that it's not permanent is a bit of a relief. That bloody curse won't lay off.
Heal fast David! :(

Sorry, but all of the tour dates for the two weeks US run were canceled.

David has been diagnosed with a very serious throat condition and is not allowed to preform for at least 4-6 weeks in order to avoid permanent harm.

It sucks because I had tickets to the Detroit show on the 15th, but I want David to get better and sound better too.

get well soon david. this is scary. i would stop listening to music all together if disturbed had to retire. theyre just getting started on the begining of their new found status. they are not just a well known and loved band anymore. THEY ARE LIVING LEGENDS NOW. please give us updates as they are found to let us know how dave is doing. we love you dave. top three bands of all time on the bilboard chart 200. only 2 other band have had 4 straight #1s lets hope 2012 or when ever album #6 comes out makes number five in row witch would make bilboard history. the only one to make 5 in a row. that would be sick as fuck. i can see it now in big red letters. DISTURBED IS THE BEST BAND OF ALL TIME, OFFICIALLY!!!
