This summer, prepare to get down with the sickeness. Again.

Nu-metal giants Disturbed are hitting the road for a major summer tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album The Sickness, and it’s coming to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on July 23.

Sweetening the lineup (for some, at least) is another huge neo-grunge group from that era: Staind. While frontman Aaron Lewis has played multiple shows around here in the last few years, this will actually be Staind’s first Tampa Bay show since 2012. Bad Wolves will open.

While musicologists will forever debate which track will go down as more historically significant, It’s Been Awhile or Down With the Sickness, there’s no doubt Disturbed has ascended to real rock-god status. Last year, their song No More became their seventh straight No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, a run that includes their improbable hit cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence.

Tickets to the show are $29.50 and up, and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for details.
