The wait is over, Evanescence is back! On the 4th of November in NYC, just over 1000 people gathered into the tiny Manhatten ballroom, for a one time performance that sold out in just 5 minutes.
Extatic fans screamed a chant that hasn't been heard in 2 years "EVAN ES CENCE, EVAN ES CENCE". The Band played some of there old material from there first and segundo albums 'fallen' and 'The open door'
Sources say "The anguish in Lee’s voice was palpable, and the band skillfully replicated live what they do on tape." - Rolling stones
fans described the performance as "The best she's ever sang" and "flawless, and Amazing"
Amy thanked the fans for being so supportive for so long, and promised that new material was on the way. The band held the 'secret show' in NYC, as a warm up for the 40,000 fans that they will be playing for in Brazil on the 8th of November. (you lucky Brazilians) hehe. :)Evanescecne had fill-in guitarist James Black, from 'Finger Eleven' play with them on the night. People described his performance as "Tight sounding and mesmerizing"
Although it was only a small show, the fans are feeling it was the best ipakita they had ever witnessed. "The konsiyerto was definitely the best EV konsiyerto I've been to, Amy as well as the rest of the band blew me away" - A tagahanga states. "And it felt sort of surreal seeing them play after so long". Everyone was blown away sa pamamagitan ng the show, and fans are extremely excited for the Brazil performance, and the new album coming in 2010. Seems like the 'Permanent Hiatus' they were presumably on, was infact a rumor, thank Goodness! Will write a follow up of there performance in Brazil as soon as the info hits me....stick around :)
