Disturbed singer David Draiman calls out texting fan

Disturbed frontman slams "rude" woman for using her phone throughout Dallas gig

Disturbed frontman David Draiman verbally attacked a "rude" fan for texting throughout one of the band's shows this week.

During their gig in Dallas, Texas, on March 23, Draiman turned his attention to a woman on the balcony of the House Of Blues venue. His rant was captured on video and can be seen below.

Draiman says: "What is so important going on in the world that you need to be texting the entire fucking show? The whole show. You're right up front, I can see you clear as day. You've had your face in your fucking phone the whole goddamn show. Are we that boring?

"Don't tell me to go fuck myself. You already did by looking in your phone instead of paying attention. It's fucking rude.

"If you don't want to watch, don't watch. But don't stand there in front of the fucking stage in the front row of the balcony where everybody can see you texting the whole fucking time on your phone."

Draiman then asks the woman if he can have her "attention for the rest of whatever's left of the set?"

He adds: "Now she's all pissed off. She thinks that I did something wrong to her. I love it. Welcome to the age of the internet, ladies and fucking gentlemen."

Disturbed are on the road in support of latest album Immortalized until April, and in July they tour with Breaking Benjamin and Alter Bridge.
