The ‘Take Back Your Life’ Tour featuring Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin & Jinjer made a stop in beautiful, tropical, downtown Camden, New Jersey on Monday night part of ‘MMR’s Summer Rock Residency at the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion.
Ukrainian rockers Jinjer kicked off the night, followed by area native Benjamin Burnley and the always rocking Breaking Benjamin. Did you know that Ben is from Ocean City, NJ? His whole family was in the house to cheer him on last night.
Disturbed was back in the Philadelphia area to headline a show for the first time since the 2022 MMR*B*Q. David and the boys are touring in support of their 8th studio album Divisive, which was released less than a year ago, producing the #1 hits “Hey You”, “Bad Man” & “Unstoppable”.
The energy in the building was as hot as the pyrotechnics were on the stage, and as constant too! Even during ‘The Sound of Silence’, the piano that Dan Donegan was playing was on fire, as sparkling fireworks fell from the rafters. This was one of the hottest shows I have been too since Rammstein’s outdoor show at Lincoln Financial Field last year. There were times during the show that it felt like my phone was melting in my hands.
They pyro and flames were so intense over the course of the night, that during the very last song of the set, “Inside the Fire”, Disturbed set off the sprinkler system at the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion. All of a sudden it started to rain on everyone in the pit and up on stage. At first, I thought it was part of the show, but after all the video cameras and equipment on stage started to get soaked, we then realized that wasn’t supposed to happen. David Draiman even said “Oops, we did it again.” (video below)
