Evanescence Throws Surprise Acoustic Show After Equipment Truck's Accident

September 25, 2019

As the old saying goes, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." 

So when the truck carrying Evanescence's musical equipment was involved in an accident during the band's tour through Russia, the band had to turn a bad situation into a good one.

Evanescence was scheduled to perform at the Grad Even Hall in Voronezh, Russia the day their equipment truck got into an accident (September 22nd). So they rescheduled for the following evening. But because none of their gear arrived the next day, the band had to act on the situation by holding an impromptu acoustic performance.

With the help of a translator, vocalist Amy Lee said to the audience. "We're gonna have a special show tonight. The truck with all of our gear was in an accident. While everybody is OK and the gear is OK, it couldn't be here for tonight's show. We didn't come all the way here to cancel on you guys. So, instead, we rented some local instruments and put together an acoustic set. So we're gonna play an acoustic show tonight."
