Evanescence Announce 2018 Australian Tour


Two-time Grammy-award winners Evanescence have announced they will be touring Australia next year to celebrate their fourth studio album Synthesis, out November 10.

The Synthesis Live With Orchestras 2018 tour will see the band collaborate with world class Australian symphony orchestras, alongside electronic programming.

The Australian dates will kick off at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra on February 11, then it will move on to the Sydney Opera House for two performances with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra on February 13 and 14, before finishing up in Melbourne at Rod Laver Arena with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra on February 16.
“I’m really looking forward to bringing this new and different show to Australia,” said Amy Lee.

“Playing the Sydney Opera House is something I’ve dreamed about all my life. I remember taking the ferry over to Manly during days off on past tours with the band, and looking over at the legendary structure, saying ‘One day, we’re going to play there!’ I can’t believe it’s finally going to be a reality. We’re all very excited about it.”
Their new album Synthesis takes a selection of Evanescence’s three previous studio releases along with two new songs, and reimagines them with brand-new recordings. Synthesis is a combination of Amy Lee’s incredible singing and piano playing, supported by her band, a full symphony orchestra performing arrangements by long-time collaborator David Campbell, as well as an array of electronic music programming and effects.
“The recording is very much tied to the live experience we want to create. I’m anxiously excited to play some much more involved, challenging piano for the show, and to focus on singing live more like the way I do in the studio.” 

Tickets go on sale on October 9.
