The Tinley Park Village Board on Wednesday presented the members of rock band Disturbed with keys to the city in honor of their ties to Tinley Park and the Chicago area before the band’s show at Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre.
Disturbed not only filmed the music video for their hit single “Down with the Sickness” at the amphitheater in 2001, but also considers Tinley Park its “hometown crowd” due to the venue being instrumental in their early success. Earlier that same year, the band was a headliner on the parking lot stage during the Ozzfest Tour and were asked by Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne to join the Main Stage after the couple saw how well the Tinley Park audience responded to their show.
Disturbed, which hails from Chicago, has sold more than 17 million records and have been nominated for two Grammy Awards. Throughout their career, they’ve used their platform in a positive way by raising awareness of addiction and mental health issues through their lyrics and at the venues that frontman David Draiman speaks at as they tour around the world.
