Supporting their monumental new album Synthesis – which features a fresh orchestral and symphonic take on classic tracks, plus two brand new songs – Arkansas rock favorites Evanescence, led by the awe-inspiring Amy Lee, are currently on the road in North America on their tremendous ‘Synthesis Live’ trek which launched mid-October.
The ongoing tour features Evanescence performing revamped versions of their fan-favorite hits like “Lacrymosa,” “Lithium,” “Bring Me to Life,” “My Immortal,” “Lost in Paradise,” and more. New York City fans were treated to a historic record release show on November 10th at Brooklyn’s dazzling Kings Theatre, where the band, huge orchestra in tow, performed in front of a sold out audience for a glorious 85 minutes.
Aforementioned anthems aside, Evanescence also performed reimagined versions of “Never Go Back,” “End of the Dream,” “My Heart Is Broken,” “Imaginary,” “Secret Door,” and others, including brand new songs off Synthesis, “Hi-Lo” and “Imperfection.” Throughout the evening, a stunning Amy Lee introduced and elaborated on the band’s newly reworked renditions, and expressed excitement at the opportunity to perform on stage with a full orchestra, a “dream” of hers for sometime now.
The encore consisted of Lee‘s solo song “Speak to Me” and Evanescence hits “Good Enough” and “Swimming Home.” Prior to the band’s 19-song set, the 28-piece orchestra opened the evening with a 30-minute, 6-song overture featuring covers of iconic pieces from Beethoven, Gabriel Fauré, Mozart, Nino Rota, and Danny Elfman.
