Blog: Evanescence brings Assembly Hall to life



By Phil Collins

10:06 pm – Last night Evanescence brought their goth-rock/nu metal to a Champaign crowd of students and plenty of parents with their younger children. The band cast a wide net over their career by playing a good selection of songs from each of their albums.

They opened with two songs from their newer disc, “The Open Door,” which came out last October. Lead singer Amy Lee told the crowd that this is the last tour on “The Open Door” cycle, and it was clear that fans have become familiar with the new songs, as they even sang along to some that haven’t been released as singles.

Highlights of the show were “Going Under,” “Bring Me To Life,” “Haunted” and “Whisper” from their debut album “Fallen”; and “Call Me When You’re Sober,” “Your Star,” “Lacrymosa” and “Good Enough,” from “The Open Door.”
