Evanescence Tickets - Catch The Hottest New Band On The Music Scene - Articles Surfing

Evanescence tickets are not only a chance to see what many consider to be the hottest new band on the scene, but it's also an opportunity to join a worldwide riddle. It seems that no one anywhere has had an easy time classifying this innovative act under one genre, and experts and fans alike have been trying for quite some time.

The band has been labeled as gothic rock, alternative rock, nu metal, piano rock, arena rock, wagnerian rock and just about any other type of rock imaginable. However, no one can agree exactly what they are, except that Evanescence tickets are guaranteed to provide fans with a memorable show. A look at their development may help provide you with an answer.

Band Beginnings

The band was founded in 1998 in Little Rock, Arkansas by lead singer and songwriter Amy Lee and former guitarist and songwriter Ben Moody after the two had met in a youth camp. It seems that Lee was playing the piano and Moody overheard her. The two got to talking, and they soon realized their shared passion for music.

They began to write music collectively, but there was one problem - they had no money to organize and promote any live shows. Therefore, they were left with sending out cheap demo tapes to local radio stations, and their songs got quite a bit of air time. Listeners quickly identified with their sound, and demand for live performances grew.

Making a Name

It wasn't long before Evanescence was playing local clubs, and their ascension to stardom was meteoric. They released several EP's and even endured some controversy in the ensuing years, which actually served them well, as they got noticed.

The band members are Christian, and they were originally thought of as a Christian rock band. However, the band disclaimed their status as a Christian rock band, which prompted Christian stores to pull their EP's from their shelves. There was much confusion with the overall theme of their work, but that confusion remains to this day.

The band did wind up signing a major record deal, and their first big-time release, Fallen, which came out in 2003, shot up to the top of the charts. It spent 43 weeks in the Billboard Top Ten, sold over 14 million copies and went 6x platinum. However, it was after this release that Moody left the band in the middle of a European tour. The only explanation given was 'creative differences,' but it was obvious to their followers that Moody and Lee were simply no longer getting along.

The band has since released two subsequent albums with much the same success, and they continue to tour relentlessly. If you're in the mood to take in a band that the music industry can't seem to affix a label to, Evanescence tickets are just what you've been looking for.
