Two totally different magazines reviewed the second Evanescence show from the current tour of Synthesis at Greek Theatre in Los Angeles which took place last Sunday, October 15th.

The first one, is from Variety magazine which titling the show as a “Amp Up the Drama With 20-Piece Orchestra” and the second from RockRevolt Magazine describe the perfomance as a “live performance created a cinematic and momentous sound, melodies that resonated across the entire venue”, adding that “this did not deter a single fan, however, as the audience was absolutely blown away by the performance”.

Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee made the leap from goth-rocker to opera diva last night, as she and the band led a 20-piece orchestra through a sold-out performance at the Greek Theatre Sunday night, previewing the group’s fourth album, “Synthesis,” which comes out November 10.

Both the concert and the album — Evanescence’s first since its self-titled 2011 effort — offer a reimagining of the group’s catalog with a full symphony orchestra, arranged by none other than Beck’s father, veteran arranger David Campbell, whose collaboration with the band dates back to its first album. The concert was the second of Evanescence’s current “Synthesis Live” tour, as they team up with a different symphony orchestra (under the direction of conductor Susie Seiter) in each city for an 80-minute, 18-song set.

Susie Seiter: "With current attention to women’s work issues I wanted to celebrate my longtime partnership with @michael_wandmacher who took a chance on a very green but hard working young girl 13 years ago and treated me with so much respect and belief in my potential where SO many others just saw nothing. He opened an enormous door to propel my career as a conductor and orchestrator and I am extremely grateful for him and others like him who are part of the movement to hire qualified women and make the world right. #hirewomen #workfamily" via Instagram

Amy started saying “don’t judge me on this one, this isn’t an Evanescence song” just before the singer performed the beautiful song with the orchestra in the second show of the tour in support of the upcoming album “Synthesis”.

Right after sang the song she added, “special thanks to my co-creators, co-composers, co-writers, co-everything on that song cause they are all here tonight” and then continued singing “Good Enough” and ended up the show with the lovely “Swimming Home”.

¿Cómo se sienten de volver a Lima después de 5 años?

Amy Lee: Bueno, ahora mismo estoy pensando en todas las cosas que están pasando en Perú, estoy pensando en ustedes todo el tiempo, viendo las noticias sobre las inundaciones y esperando que todos estén bien. Yo sé que son unas personas muy apasionadas, una cultura de coraje, pero además personas muy amables. Cuando hemos estado allá nos han llenado de regalos y de cosas que representan el país, de arte, de cosas que jamás nos han regalado antes y estamos muy agradecidos por su cariño

El público peruano le tiene un gran cariño a la banda, hay mucha expectativa por su regreso en un festival tan grande, ¿qué esperan ustedes de su show?

Estoy entusiasmada de brindar a los fans peruanos un show con la conformación actual de la banda, porque siento que estamos haciendo sonidos más fuertes. Quiero que nos divirtamos juntos, que disfrutemos del show. Estoy realmente emocionada de llevarles el show, nuevamente.
