Chances are good that this will become one of the biggest tours of the upcoming years: with EVANESCENCE and WITHIN TEMPTATION, two of the most successful bands of the genre come together for touring Europe as co-headliners. Kick-off is on April 4, 2020 in Brussels. The VIP sale started already on September 17; general ticket sale begins on September 20. The concert tour of both bands, which are led by two of the most influencing and creative women of the Rock genre - Amy Lee (EVANESCENCE) and Sharon den Adel (WITHIN TEMPTATION) - includes 20 gigs in European cities, e.g. six in Germany and one in Switzerland.

“We have exciting news... In April, we will unite with EVANESCENCE to present a very special co-headliner tour”, said Sharon den Adel. “It will become a tour that you definitely don’t want to miss. It was great to meet Amy and the rest of the band a short while ago. I think, we have much in common, but in particular, I am sure, that we share the same passion and fire for what we do. I am very delighted to tour Europe together and to experience something that is unforgettable.”

“It is very exciting for us to work together with WITHIN TEMPTATION and to play that epic tour in April. For a long time, many people asked us again and again, if we are interested in doing something together, and now we will ensure, that the waiting was worth it! I look forward to hear Sharon’s beautiful voice every evening.”

Corona Update
Due to the ongoing restrictions preventing large gatherings and to health concerns surrounding COVID-19 as well as certain travel restrictions that remain in place, WITHIN TEMPTATION and EVANESCENCE are forced to postpone their massive co-headline European tour. Their ‘Worlds Collide’ tour which was originally due to kick off this past April 4th, will now move to September 2021.  The tour was initially postponed until September of this year in the hopes that conditions would permit the artists to perform for their fans. As the world continues to battle the virus, it has become clear that it must be delayed until next year. Specific information for the rescheduled shows will be available on the band’s websites and at All existing tickets & VIP Packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates. Those unable to attend should visit their point of purchase for refunds. Tickets are available at

WITHIN TEMPTATION singer Sharon Den Adel said: “We know this year will not be easy for you and we will do whatever it takes to get you through by continuing to write and release new songs. Knowing that we won’t get to play for you this year is hard for everyone, but everyone’s health and wellbeing is our number one priority. Whatever happens, this tour will happen! We can’t wait to see you again in 2021. For now: stay safe”

EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee said: “We are so disappointed that we won't be seeing you this fall, but we're accepting the challenge 2020 is giving us and pouring our time and hearts into making a great album instead. Friends, we miss you terribly and can't wait to play these songs for you next year! Be safe, be well, we love you!”

About Evanescence
The two-time Grammy winners EVANESCENCE were founded in the middle of the nineties and celebrated major success all around the world. It’s largely contributed to the band, that women in Rock loomed larger than ever before. With their 2003 released debut album ‘Fallen’, the US band laid the foundation: the long player spent 43 weeks in the Top Ten of the US Billboard Charts. Worldwide, more than seventeen million copies were sold. The single ‘Bring Me To Life’ (recorded with the 12 Stones singer Paul McCoy) reached number five of the US charts, number two in Germany and number one in the UK. The also very successful single ‘My Immortal’ reached number seven of the US and UK charts, and number five of the Official German Charts. In total, four singles were released from the album, among others ‘Going Under’ (number five of the US Modern Rock Charts, number eight in UK, number fifteen in Germany) and ‘Everybody’s Fool’ (number thirty-six of the US Modern Rock Charts, number twenty-three in the UK). In Germany alone, the band sold more than 1.2 million copies of ‘Fallen’.

The second studio album ‘The Open Door’ peaked the US-American and German charts, more than 5 million copies were sold all around the world. In 2011, the third album ‘Evanescence’ directly peaked the US-American charts. In autumn 2017, the band around Amy Lee, who is singer, songwriter and pianist, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist Troy McLawhorn, and guitarist Jen Majura, released their fourth album ‘Synthesis’, which is their most ambitious album so far. ‘Synthesis’ was released on the Sony Music-Label Columbia, reached number five in Germany and number eight in the US. In October 2017, the world tour ‘Synthesis Live’ together with an entire live orchestra started.
