Evanescence comes to Little Rock hot on the heels of its latest album, a self-titled effort that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The group's previous album, "The Open Door," was released back in 2006 and it debuted at No. 1 as well.
Band leader (and former Arkansas resident) Amy Lee recently discussed the album with Billboard senior correspondent Mitchell Peters, noting that "there's experimentation and new ideas and new attitude, but at the same time I think a lot of just great Evanescence music. I think it's an album that our fans will love."
Lee also said that the band's current tour is going to be its most extensive yet, hitting several places Evanescence hasn't played before, including China, Indonesia and Ireland. The opening acts are Electric Touch and Rival Sons.
