So yesterday i was finally able to see Evanescence live and it was AWESOME!
Seriously, i think i have a little crush on Amy Lee. I'm not into woman at all but damn, that woman
Her voice is so freaking incredible! I think this was the second best vocals i've experienced live so far, only behind Tarja (who studied classic & does opera singing style, so no surprise there i guess).
The setlist was strong, too. Of course, i really missed "Call Me When You're Sober" there but i already knew the list thanks to wiki/setlist.fm so it wasn't a surprise that they didn't play it, but it still would have been nice as it's still one of my faves by them.
Also, the encore was kinda weak. I've never been a big fan of "Good Enough"/"Swimming Home" so that was slightly boring, especially as the last two tracks of the list.
Plus it was a bit confusing how there was that classic intro which went around 20-30 minutes, and then a break of 30 minutes and after that, Evanescence came and played for around 80 minutes. The break was too long, but i should be used to long(er) breaks by now as it's happening more and more with concerts these days - at least that's how i feel.
But yeah, other than that, it was simply stunning. Amy, her voice, the songs, the arrangements, the band overall (the other female band member had to giggle all the time at one point and couldn't stop, which made the crowd giggling as well
), and of course the orchestra. Amy was so down to earth. She didn't interreact that much with the crowd but when she did, she had all in her spell. Her voice is also better live than on the record IMO.
Last but not least... Pfff at Amy calling "My Immortal" her least favorite song
This was definitely not the last time seeing them live (if they keep on touring over the next years of course).
