Two-time GRAMMY award-winners Evanescence have today announced an Australian east coast tour ‘Synthesis Live With Orchestras’ ‘to celebrate the band’s fourth studio album ‘Synthesis’, out November 10.
Set to deliver a truly transcendent experience, ‘Synthesis Live’ will see the band collaborate with world class Australian symphony orchestras alongside electronic programming. Australian dates will kick off at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra on 11 February, moving on to the Sydney Opera House before culminating in Melbourne at Rod Laver Arena.
“I’m really looking forward to bringing this new and different show to Australia,” says frontwoman 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.”
Not simply a greatest hits 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 an amalgamation of Amy Lee’s masterful 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.
‘Synthesis’ will be released on November 10. Evanescence will hit the stage at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Saturday 10 February 2018.
