Disturbed Invite Disabled Fan Onstage


(Metal Hammer) Disturbed invited a disabled fan to watch part of their set in Auckland, New Zealand, from the stage after being inspired by his "bravery." The fan, known only as Pete, was watching the band's performance at the Vector Arena from the front row, despite being confined to a wheelchair.

And as the metal giants returned to the stage for an encore, frontman David Draiman explained to the crowd that he wanted the man to enjoy the rest of the show at close quarters.

In a video posted to the band's Facebook page, Draiman says: "There's this gentleman sitting right by the front row. And this guy has not been able to see properly all night, but he's had the balls to be in the f***ing front row like this."

As security guards help Pete to the stage, it is revealed that it his first ever time at a live concert. Draiman adds: "This is the difference between other genres and hard rock and heavy metal, ladies and gentlemen. You won't see this kind of bravery, courage, strength at a pop show.

"You think people have the balls to go ahead in a wheelchair to get to the front of a f***ing barricade when they go to see Britney Spears? Doesn't f***ing happen." Read more and see the video clip here.
