EVANESCENCE ANNOUNCE FIRST UK TOUR FOR 4 YEARS
LONDON, July 26, 2011 -- Following a three-year sabbatical after the multi-platinum, worldwide success of their sophomore effort, The Open Door, Evanescence went into the studio on April 11th this year to begin recording their third studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz, whose recent producing credits include Foo Fighters, RUSH, Stone Sour, Deftones and Alice in Chains. It is due to be released in the fall on Wind Up/EMI.
Now they are to tour the UK for the first time since 2007. Kicking off at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on 4th November, they finish up in Birmingham on the 13th, before heading over to mainland Europe. Singer Amy Lee commented: “We're dying to come back to the UK and play the new music for our fans. Can't wait!"
Doors are 7pm apart from Leeds which is 6.30.
Tickets go on sale 9am Friday 29th July priced at £28.50 regionally and £29.50 London (subject to booking fee), available for purchase from www.livenation.co.uk
With what some call a meteoric rise to the top, the band’s first album, Fallen brought the band to global success with more than 17 million records in the hands of fans worldwide, two Top 10 singles, “My Immortal” and “Bring Me To Life” and two Grammy® Awards in 2003 (Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance for “Bring Me To Life”).
The Open Door was certified double platinum in the United States and has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide. The album was defined by Amy Lee’s beautiful melodies, profound lyrics, stunning vocals and poignant piano, merged with Terry Balsamo’s urgent, yet intricate guitar playing and formed a remarkable, ethereal blend perfectly rooted in the band’s rock and classical sensibilities, including the hit single “Call Me When You’re Sober.”
