Disturbed with Breaking Benjamin and Jinjer at Pacific Amphitheater in Irvine, California on July 20, 2023
Disturbed is one of my all time favorite bands in the world. I love them and I absolutely love David Draiman. The first time I saw them live was for The Sickness tour waaaaaaaay back in the day. I was so young back them. David Draiman was, and remains, the single most charismatic frontman I have ever seen.
When I got the approval to shoot this show, I cried a little. I'm not ashamed. This was also the first show that I almost had a literal fan girl moment. Every second closer to the show, the more my excitement and anxiety and happiness took over. Thankfully, I am a professional, (ish) and I was able to put all that stuff away and get the job done.
This is just one of those shows that I will never fully be able to believe that I actually got to shoot. Sometimes I still can't believe my life.
Sadly, this was the last show that I will ever shoot at Fivepoint Amphitheater, as they are closing after this concert season.
You can read my review here while I stare at my photos and try to convince myself that I was, in fact, the person who took them.
Come with me on some awesome photo adventures and a few wild shenanigans.
