Reno, Nev. – Grammy award winning rock group Evanescence will perform at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino’s (GSR) Grand Theatre on Friday, Dec. 15. Evanescence return this fall with “Synthesis,” their fourth studio album, slated for a Fall 2017 release. Like the album, “Synthesis Live” will feature a reimagining of some of Evanescence’s best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra, electronics combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice.

“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains Amy Lee of Evanescence. “I’ve always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation. This will be our first-time touring with orchestra and I’m so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we’ve built over the years. I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack.” Tickets for this show start at $35.73 and are on sale now at www.grandsierraresort.com or by calling 1-800-648-3568.
