Evanescence’s “Synthesis Live” tour will launch in Las Vegas for an intimate performance in the Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Evanescence return this fall with Synthesis, their fourth studio album, slated for a fall 2017 release. Like the album, “Synthesis Live” will feature a reimagining of some of Evanescence’s best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra, electronics combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice.
“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains Amy Lee of Evanescence. “I’ve always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation. This will be our first time touring with orchestra and I’m so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we’ve built over the years. I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack.”
“Synthesis Live” fan and VIP pre-sales are on-sale beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, Aug. 15) with general on-sale beginning Friday, Aug. 18. Every ticket sold will come with a download of the new album, Synthesis when it is released later this fall. As an added bonus, ticket buyers will also receive songs from the album prior to the album’s release date, beginning with a stunning new reworking of the band’s biggest hit, “Bring Me To Life,” which will be available for download to all ticket buyers as well as on streaming services and in digital stores beginning this Friday. A variety of VIP ticket packages are available to ensure fans obtain the best seats in the house. Other VIP benefits include the opportunity to meet and enjoy a champagne toast with the band, attend their sound check, and receive exclusive merchandise items.

The two-time, GRAMMY Award-winning group is currently in the studio finishing the new album through August with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell. In addition to the re-imagined catalog songs, the forthcoming Synthesis album will feature two new Evanescence songs.
