The tour kicks off November 5th at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon, and runs through a December 18th show at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. The outing sticks to the western half of the United States before taking a Thanksgiving break, after which it hits the Midwest and East Coast.
Evanescence will be out in support of their recent album, The Bitter Truth, which marked the band’s first new LP of original material in 10 years. Halestorm, meanwhile, have been hard at work on a follow-up to their 2018 album, Vicious.
In a press release, Amy Lee stated, “Words can’t express how excited we are to go back on tour with our friends and rock out again. We’ve been building this new music in isolation for over a year and dreaming of what it will be like to finally play it live, and to experience it together with our fans for the first time. We can’t wait to see you there!”
Lzzy Hale added, “We have all been mourning the loss of live music, and patiently waiting, looking toward an uncertain future. Finally the future looks bright and I can’t think of a better way to break the silence than with our dear friends in Evanescence. I can only imagine how it will feel to step on stage again night after night, and reconnect with all of the fans whom I’ve missed so much. Get ready for intense emotions, loud performances, and a newly exhilarated energy unlike any tour we’ve experienced in the past. Looking forward to seeing you all!”
Lee and Hale are good friends, having collaborated together in the past year. Lzzy lent her vocals to Evanescence’s “Use My Voice” from The Bitter Truth, while Amy appeared on a new version of Halestorm’s “Break In” from the latter’s Reimagined EP.
Evanescence will give fans a taste of their live show with a free livestream concert presented by Cooper Tire and hosted by Alice Cooper this Thursday, May 13th.
