'Evanescence: Synthesis Live With Orchestra' coming to Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte Oct. 28

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Aug. 21, 2017) Ovens Auditorium will host "Evanescence: Synthesis Live with Orchestra" at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, at all Ticketmaster outlets or at the Bojangles' Coliseum Box Office located at 2700 E. Independence Blvd. Tickets range from $38 to $88 (plus applicable service charges) and are subject to change.

Evanescence returns 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 and 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.”

Every ticket sold from “Synthesis Live” 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 Friday, Aug. 18.
