Carnival of Madness Tour: Evanescence + The Used + LostAlone
Currently celebrating their 15 millionth Facebook Like, the Grammy Award winning rock band have announced that they will be returning to the UK for the first time since their brief visit in November 2011, when their self titled album topped the Billboard charts and other charts around the world.
The band have spent the summer playing sold out shows in Europe and around the world and head out on their Carnival of Madness tour in the US at the end of July. Recently singer Amy Lee was chosen as the recipient of the Luella Bennack Award at United Cerebral Palsy's 11th Annual Women Who Care Luncheon, for her work with the Out of The Shadows charity. The band also played at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo at the end of last year.
The Used and LostAlone will join the tour as special guests.
This event takes place at The SSE Arena, Wembley, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Evanescence's use of that rarest of things in rock - a female lead vocalist - proved a phenomenal success. With what some call a meteoric rise to the top, Evanescence's first album, 'Fallen', brought them global success with two Top 10 singles, 'My Immortal' and 'Bring Me To Life', and two Grammy® Awards in 2003 (Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance for 'Bring Me To Life').
Second album 'The Open Door' was defined by Amy Lee's beautiful melodies, profound lyrics, stunning vocals and poignant piano, merged with Terry Balsamo's urgent, yet intricate guitar playing and formed a remarkable, ethereal blend perfectly rooted in the band's rock and classical sensibilities, including the hit single 'Call Me When You're Sober'. Meanwhile their eponymous third album 'Evanescence' debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart with 127,000 copies sold in its first week, and topped four other Billboard charts.
Following a hiatus, the band made a return to the stage at Japan's Ozzfest in November 2015 and have since resumed touring.

Besides homelessness and substance abuse, The Used have overcome incredible difficulties to carve a name for themselves in the ultra-conservative confines of their Utah home towns. With a fiercely unpredictable show, crafted and honed on a punishing road schedule, they've created a raw but touching sound that veers wildy from a whisper to a full-on screeching wail.
