Now that this blogger has secured two tickets in the shed, I am thrilled to share my excitement about the upcoming Evanescence show at Tanglewood. It started as a whisper, a rumour I thought, but actually there was a writeup in both the Eagle and Berkshireonstage.com back in May announcing that tickets were going on sale May 29.
So it’s confirmed, the Grammy award-winners will follow their Aug. 31 Carnival of Madness Tour: Evanescence & Halestorm Mohegan Sun Arena – CT with an uncommon performance Tanglewood on a Labor Day weekend in the Koussevitzky Music Shed on September 1, at 7 p.m. It is not often that rockers grace the stage at Tanglewood, but Evanescence does have it’s operatic moments. With them, one of my favorite bands, Chevelle, will open the show, and there are still some good tickets available at the box office, online or by calling: 888-266-1200. Tickets for Evanescence and Chevelle range from $22 (lawn) to $76, with additional shed tickets ranging from $36 to $54. Not bad especially if you visit the box office and avoid the extra processing fees. Normally it requires a bit of travel to either Saratoga or further to see this kind of show. This is literally right in our backyard!
Best known for “Bring Me To Life,” (Grammy for best hard rock performance), “My Immortal” and “Call Me When You’re Sober,” Evanescence performs all over the world as a headlining act. Lead vocalist Amy Lee is often emulated by young aspiring singers. It can be a challenge. For their latest album Evanescence, Amy Lee and the band wrote a number of new songs including ‘My Heart is Broken’ …..
Chevelle is an American alternative hard rock band from Chicago. Their primary influences are Helmet, Tool, and The Cure. Chevelle has sold over three million albums in the United States. Their second album, Wonder What’s Next, (2002) went Platinum after a debuting at No. 14 on the US charts. Not surprising as two of the songs ‘Send the Pain Below’ and ‘The Red’ are hypnotic rockers … check it out (skip the commercial):
Hope to see you there!!!!
