Evanescence Announce Nobel Peace Prize Concert Gig, January Tour
Evanescence are set to rock the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. The Amy Lee-fronted band will perform in Oslo, Norway on Dec. 11 as part of the Nobel Peace Prize concert, with additional American tour dates to follow in January.
The Peace Prize concert will take place one day after the actual ceremony, which honors Peace Prize recipients President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, activist Leymah Gbowee of Liberia, and democracy activist Tawakkul Karman of Yemen. Evanescence will join Sugarland, Matthew Morrison of ‘Glee‘ and others for the concert, which will be shown in more than 130 countries and stream live on CNN International.
Next month, Evanescence will head out for short mini-tour covering seven shows in southern U.S. states, beginning Jan. 13 in Clemson, South Carolina and finishing in the group’s home base of Little Rock, Arkansas. The band continues to tour in support of their self-titled album, which hit No. 1 upon its release in October.
Evanescence also announced they have a new music video on the way. The clip for ‘My Heart is Broken’ will premiere in January.
