Device cancels tour with Draiman baby on way
If you were hoping to make it to one of the remaining dates on Device’s tour, you’re gonna have to cancel those plans. The tour of Disturbed front man David Draiman’s side project Device has been canceled as he states there are some complications with his wife’s pregnancy. No other details were given, other than Draiman and the band plan on taking off until the due date which is sometime early October. During the Gigantour up in Toronto, Draiman coxed his wife on stage and introduced the crowd to the super model and the baby bump and said “Look at that belly. That’s my boy in there!” The babies name is going to be Samuel Bear Draiman. Best of luck to the new family.
