  • Disturbed loves to invite other bands to play with them during large events, which can make for many a Moment of Awesome (this was before the Big Four at Sonisphere made the spontaneous-row-of-Badasses thing cool).
  • During the 2001 U.S Ozzfest Tour, the band was slated to play second stage, and on the first date in Chicago the band filled out a 10'000 capacity park with over 20'000 attendants (the main stage embarrassingly empty). The very next date, they got bumped up to headliner. That same day, their sound compelled Ozzy Osbourne to leave his office to see who it was playing; after their set he told Draiman they were excellent.
  • Later on in the same tour, Disturbed played their first publicized cover or Pantera's Walk. The Abbot brothers Vinnie Paul and Dimebag happened to be nearby and joined them on stage. After the first chorus, they were then joined by Chester Bennington in a chorus of voices shouting "Walk!".
    • This isn't uncommon. One Ozzfest had them inviting nearly the entirety of that year's bill to come shout "Walk!" with them and the Abbot brothers.
  • Their Cold Gin cover apparently had Vinnie Paul along with members of Anthrax, Drowning Pool and SOil joining in.
  • The band says that the moment they really knew they'd made it was when they got to headline at the Chicago World Music Festival, the venue where they shot Down with the Sickness.
  • Music As A Weapon II, Chicago IL, Encore, Draiman inviting Pete Loeffler of Chevelle and Joey Duenas of Unloco to join him on stage to sing Stupify to finish the set.
  • During the Indestructible tour (depending on the venue), the band created a Big Rock Ending guitar/drum/bass solo to finish Down with the Sickness.
  • It was announced on August 13, 2010 that the band's Rockumentary Decade of Disturbed would be receiving a brief theatrical release in select cities.
  • Aside from the standard lights, smoke and pyrotechnics, MAAW IV started concerts with Draiman being lowered onto the stage from a platform shaped like the Believe symbol. For the Asylum tour the band is promising to feature the most elaborate stage production of the band's career.
"Very theatrical, very dramatic, very visually stimulating."
—Draiman on the staging
  • The non-single (at the time) "Warrior" from Asylum managing to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 purely on downloads.
