Fresh 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 .
     {mosimage}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. 
     “We really wanted to make sure fans attending Music As a Weapon this year got the most bang for their buck,” says Disturbed frontman David Draiman, “so we decided to bring in the tattoo artists, the extreme sports complex, the gaming, and the vendor village to go beyond the usual live music experience and give the concerts the feel of a true event. If they are going to part with their hard-earned money, we need to honor that and give them our all in return.” 
     Disturbed will be joined by Killswitch Engage on the main-stage, as well as Lacuna Coil, Chimaira and other acts to be announced on the second stage.
     The Music As A Weapon tour will make a stop in Fayetteville on Thursday, April 24 at the Crown Coliseum. Tickets are $39.50. Military tickets are $34.50, and are available at the Crown Box Office and at
