Chicago band Disturbed honored by police officers ahead of concert
Chicago heavy metal band Disturbed got a surprise from two police officers before its Massachusetts show Saturday as a token of appreciation for the band's recent outpouring of support for law enforcement, Loudwire reports.Following police officer shootings earlier this month in Dallas, the band released a video message to uplift the city.
"We just want to send everybody our best wishes. I know it's been a tough time for the city of late. You lost some decorated boys in blue. Blue lives matter, all lives matter, black lives matter," lead singer David Draiman said. "Love each other. Be good to one another and hopefully we'll see better times soon. More peaceful times. Stay safe and stay Dallas strong."
Disturbed's cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" was also recently used in a tribute video made by the North Richland Hills Police Department in Texas to honor law enforcement officers.
