Opening acts have been announced for Evanescence and Halestorm’s Fall 2021 tour: Plush (plushrocks.net) will be joining for the first leg, and Lilith Czar (lilithczar.com) will be joining for the second. Tour dates (with opening acts indicated) below.
Evanescence and Halestorm are returning to the concert stage in the US this fall. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off Friday, November 5th, in Portland, OR, and take the bands to arenas across the country before wrapping up in the Northeast right before the holidays. Tickets and limited VIP packages are on sale now at LiveNation.com.
The tour will bring together two of the top women in rock — Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale — for a truly badass experience night after night. Close friends as well as close collaborators, just last year, Lzzy performed back-up vocals on Evanescence’s “Use My Voice,” and Amy joined Lzzy on a new version of Halestorm’s “Break In.” In addition to new music and the biggest hits from both women, the shows will highlight their personal bond and the music that’s come of it.
Amy Lee said: “Words can’t express how excited we are to go back on tour with our friends and rock out again. We’ve been building this new music in isolation for over a year and dreaming of what it will be like to finally play it live, and to experience it together with our fans for the first time. We can’t wait to see you there!”
Lzzy Hale said of the upcoming tour: “We have all been mourning the loss of live music, and patiently waiting, looking toward an uncertain future. Finally the future looks bright and I can’t think of a better way to break the silence than with our dear friends in Evanescence. I can only imagine how it will feel to step on stage again night after night, and reconnect with all of the fans whom I’ve missed so much. Get ready for intense emotions, loud performances, and a newly exhilarated energy unlike any tour we’ve experienced in the past. Looking forward to seeing you all!”
The Bitter Truth debuted in March as the #1 Current Rock and Alternative album in the US, and the band will bring audiences a high-octane rock energy to match the album, which The LA Times hailed as their “fiercest songs to date.” Consequence of Sound said of The Bitter Truth, “Amy Lee and company triumphantly return … and it’s certainly worth the wait,” and the shows with Halestorm this winter will further prove it.
