Evanescence Announce Summer 2018 ‘Synthesis’ Tour With Lindsey Stirling
What a pairing this could be! Evanescence will return to the road this summer, bringing their "Synthesis" tour, complete with orchestral backing, to fans. Joining them for this run will be another queen of strings, violinist Lindsey Stirling, who will co-headline the shows.
Evanescence issued their Synthesis disc last year, which found the band reimagining some of the songs from their catalog complete with an orchestra backing and new arrangements. The addition of Stirling will also allow for collaboration during the shows as the band recently pulled in Stirling for an electrifying violin solo on the song "Hi-Lo" from the Synthesis album.
The tour starts July 6 in Kansas City, Mo., and will move from the Midwest to the East Coast, it will travel down through the southern U.S. and cut back across the country and up along the West Coast before finishing Sept. 8 in Ridgefield, Wash.
VIP packages and exclusive artist pre-sales start tomorrow (March 7) at 10AM local time in each city. Fans can head over to Evanescence's website and enter the password: HILO18 in order to take part in the early VIP packages. The Synthesis Pre-Show Experience Package includes premium reserved seating, meet and greet and photo ops with the band, access to a pre-show soundcheck, a signed Synthesis tour program, early merch shopping, a commemorative laminate and a pre-show champagne toast with the group. There is also a Synthesis Soundcheck Experience package, including several of the incentives from the Pre-Show package.
