...and OMG! It was amazing!
The evening started with two support acts...though the first one was so bad, I neither remember their name nor their songs *laughs* The singer was drunk and all they did was screaming into the microphone *sigh* BUT...the second support act, THE PRETTY RECKLESS, were great! Taylor Momsen (best known for her acting career in "Gossip Girl") has a surprisingly rough and strong voice for such a tiny person *lol* They really managed to warm the audience up and I was so glad to FINALLY see a GOOD support act again. It's been about time!
However, after a short break, EVANESCENCE entered the stage...and started their show with "What you want" from the latest album and immediately, the whole place was rocking out! Amy Lee sounds so great live! Almost better than on CD! Her voice is amazing and she certainly knew how to rock the stage and entertain the audience. They performed a well-balanced mix of songs from all their albums including "My Immortal" as the final song and encore - and wow...the song is live even more intense than on CD! "Going Under", "Call me when you're sober", "Bring me to life", "Sick" and "The Other Side" certainly rocked the most...but Amy playing the piano for "Lost in Paradise", "My Heart Is Broken" or "Lithium" really gives you goose bumps in the most positive way.
So far, NIGHTWISH had been my personal favourite live band (and I'm going to see them again next April...hehe...) but last night, EVANESCENCE topped them - or rather: Amy Lee did!
Everyone go and see EVANESCENCE live! It's soooo worth it!
