Evanescence Announce 2018 Australian Tour Dates

Prepare your awkward inner goth to lose their shit, because Evanescence have stopped the teasing and announced their long-awaited return to Australia for a 2018 headline tour.


After recently bringing themselves (back) to life with new single ‘Imperfection’, the noughties dark rockers (now sans founding guitarist Ben Moody) will be heading to Australia in February for their first tour since 2012, and what’s more, they’ll have an orchestra in toe.

Armed with their brand new album Synthesis, which is due out on 10th November, Amy Lee and co. will perform in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne with their arsenal of enigmatic tunes, but not as we know them.

The Synthesis Live tour will see Evanescence reimagine of some of their best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra, plus electronics, combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice.

“I’m really looking forward to bringing this new and different show to Australia,” the goth kween says.

“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.”
