Video Footage Of EVANESCENCE's First Live Performance In Three Years
November 19, 2015
EVANESCENCE re-emerged after a three-year hiatus with select, intimate shows earlier this month in Nashville, Dallas and Los Angeles. The influential, Grammy-winning band last performed live in November of 2012.
Fan-filmed video footage of EVANESCENCE's November 13 concert at Marathon Music Works in Nashville can be seen below.
EVANESCENCE has also been confirmed for Ozzfest Japan, the first major international music festival to ever travel to Japan, which will return to Makuhari Messe Arena (just outside of Tokyo) Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22. The two-day event, which will feature more than 22 performers, will be headlined by two Ozzfest veterans: festival namesake OZZY OSBOURNE (who will perform as Ozzy & Friends) and KORN.
EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee recently told RollingStone.com that there are no plans for the band to record new material, but that EVANESCENCE may play more shows next year.
"I am definitely working and making music with every intention of people hearing it at this point," Lee told RollingStone.com. "I don't know the plan with EVANESCENCE. I don't have any news or plans for new EVANESCENCE, but new music for me, for sure."
Lee also explained why EVANESCENCE played shows leading up to the band's November 21 appearance at Ozzfest Japan in Tokyo. "We got offered to do Ozzfest Japan in the beginning of the year, so I was like 'Let's say yes to that,'" she said. "I just added the three U.S. dates on to it so we could get a little practice before doing a big gig where everything is out of your control. It will be good to see the fans again. I'm going to be keeping my eye open to us for more opportunities. Like probably next year."
EVANESCENCE recently parted ways with guitarist Terry Balsamo and replaced him with Germany's Jen Majura.
The last EVANESCENCE album, a self-titled effort, came out in 2011.
