Evanescence Australian Tour

Evanescence are finally set to make a long-overdue return to Australia this March, in a just-announced tour hitting Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney. These shows will be their first in Australia since their sold-out, seven-date national tour of 2007, and their third tour overall.

Evanescence are renowned for their classically-influenced, haunting, hammering hard rock sound, beautifully led by Amy Lee's wrenching vocals ranging from delicate to dramatic, primal to passionate. Piano-led broodings swell at pace upon intricate, hammering guitars, creating stunning hard-driving tunes. Their unique sound has lead to combined album sales nearing 25 million worldwide. Australian sales alone exceed 600,000. Global success arrived for Evanescence with the delivery of their 2003 debut album Fallen, featuring the epic #1 single 'Bring Me To Life' and universal hit 'My Immortal'. The album earned the band two prestigious Grammy Awards and cultivated international acclaim.

The Open Door was the second installment from Evanescence. Housing massive hit singles 'Call Me When You're Sober' and 'Lithium', the hugely successful album hit #1 on the ARIA album chart. In 2010 Evanescence returned to the studio, resulting in the October 2011 release of their eponymous, long-awaited third studio album (through Wind Up/EMI). Spearheaded by the single 'What You Want', the album hit #1 in the US Billboard charts and debuted at the top of charts around the world.

Special guests Blaqk Audio will join Evanescence on tour, performing at all shows. Blaqk Audio is the electronic side project of AFI frontman Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget. Blaqk Audio's 2007 debut CexCells is an homage to the duo's love of electronic music. The album expands upon and fully indulges the dark electronic textures that have influenced and pervaded the duo's work for years. Hints of Blaqk Audio can be heard as early as AFI's 2006 release Sing The Sorrow as well as subsequent releases. Their second album Bright Black Heaven is set for release later this year. Don't miss Evanescence live in concert, with special guests Blaqk Audio.

Tickets for all shows will go on sale at 9am, February 9.
