Lushington Entertainments proudly announces EVANESCENCE Live at Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Expo VIVA Hall 5, February 21, 2012. Ticket sales launch on January 6, 10am.
After a three year sabbatical, the multi-platinum, worldwide success of their sophomore album, The Open Door, Grammy award winning band Evanescence have released their third self-titled studio album produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, RUSH, Deftones).
Evanescence is Amy Lee (vocals, piano), Terry Balsamo (guitar) Tim McCord (bass) , Will Hunt (drums) and Troy McLawhorn (guitar). Led by Lee’s operatic, passionate vocals, Evanescence has sold close to 25 million albums since its 2003 debut, Fallen. The project’s premiere single, Bring Me To Life snagged the band a Grammy for best hard rock performance. Other massive hits followed, including My Immortal, Going Under, and Call Me When You’re Sober, establishing Evanescence as worldwide tour headliners.
The inherent drama in Evanescence’s music – a kind of audio odyssey that can turn on a dime from piano-led introspection to hammering guitar – has resonated with listeners everywhere. The music’s core, which ranges from beautiful to subtle to aggressive, finds a counterpart in Lee’s passionate vocals, lyrics that forge a connection with audiences searching for identity or struggling with feelings of desire, hope love and loss.
Now, Evanescence’s thoughts have turned to returning to the road. “This record is so geared for live shows,” Lee says. “We were thinking about playing live the whole time we were writing it.”
Making the return all the sweeter are the fans. “I can’t describe how great it feels to have their support. I love so much meeting them before and after the show. If feels like they’re growing with us” says Lee.
Though already superstars, Lee and her bandmates have the enthusiasm of newcomers as they look to a future that is brimming with possibility through Evanescence. “This moment right now between us and the fans, it feels like a celebration, a homecoming, a family reunion,” Lee says. “We’re so happy to be back.”
