evanescence and within temptation worlds collide tour

After three long years, having been rescheduled four times due to the pandemic, the highly anticipated co-headline tour between Dutch symphonic metal titans Within Temptation and superstar American rockers Evanescence is finally about to land on UK shores. If good things come to those who wait, both bands should deliver enough of a spectacle to reward fans who’ve been patiently anticipating such a mouth-watering bill. 

They may have been separated by a rather massive ocean, and raised in very different cultural environments, but Evanescence and Within Temptation (who formed a year apart in 1995 and ‘96 respectively) still boast some striking similarities. Such is the visual and ideological kinship between the bands, it’s surprising they’d never crossed paths prior to a backstage encounter at an Evanescence show in 2018.

Meeting for the first time, Within Temptation’s Sharon den Adel and Evanescence’s Amy Lee hit it off in double quick time. The two groups subsequently co-headlined the final night of a Swiss rock and metal festival, which met with so much acclaim that joining forces for the upcoming Worlds Collide Tour was all but inevitable.

With the powerhouse Dutch outfit set to perform brand new material from next year’s forthcoming studio album, and the US quintet ready to showcase songs from 2021’s ‘The Bitter Truth’, these gigs promise to be a storm of audio visual excellence. We caught up with den Adel to hear all about her band’s upcoming album, that special first chat with Lee and why, given the uncanny prescience of 2019’s ‘Resist’, we should probably rechristen her Sharon Nostradamus. 

Let's start with your recent American tour, where you supported a little band called Iron Maiden. I imagine that was pretty cool?

That little band was amazing. It was nice meeting them and being on a tour with them was also amazing. Before this we’d only played one festival together, which was a lot of fun, but we got to see more of them, speak to them and it was really nice. I know the boys were having a night out with Steve Harris, so they had more fun drinking, of course.

Anyway, what I like so much about Iron Maiden is that they never fell out of love with their music, and music in general. Every night we played they were there, not all of them but a few, like Steve Harris and Nicko [McBrain] was there a lot, checking out the show. Every night we played the same songs but they were there because they still love music so much. I’ve heard all the support acts they have, they check them out on stage. That’s something I find really special. In 20 years time I hope I still do the same thing. That’s what we have in common. The love for music and enthusiasm when you see a band you like. That’s beautiful.  

And following those dates you’re finally about to embark on the Worlds Collide Tour with Evanescence. It’s been a long wait.

I definitely thought, ‘I don’t know if this one is going to happen. I’m not sure how long people will keep on waiting because it’s been a while.’ But I’m happy to see that most people kept their tickets and that we hung in there, because we wanted to make it happen. We’ve been working on this for such a long time and didn’t stop developing the show, because we got the opportunity to write new songs so we had to change the set list. That means we also changed the visuals. It’s been three years developing the tour while writing new songs. It’s been a long project and hopefully we’ll finally see the tour through without anything strange happening. 

Who will be opening and closing the gigs?

We’ll do it differently every night. One night they will close, the other night we will and vice versa. It’s the best way to do it. 

In terms of your relationship with Evanescence, you and Amy only met a few years ago but have both spoken about your first conversation with the same level of fondness. What was so special about that discussion?

Well, when you meet someone for the first time you don’t know what to expect. It’s mostly polite conversation. With her it was so strange. Within five minutes, there was no wall to break down, no ice to melt. It was a very honest normal conversation, as if we’d known each other for a long time. It was, for both of us, a really big surprise. We both like to be pure, in the way we react. No drama or fake stuff. It’s ‘what you see is what you get’ and very honest. That’s what we both liked. 

What’s your first memory of hearing Evanescence? Do you have a favourite song of theirs?

When the first album came out everybody got to know them. That was the first major big bang and, all of a sudden, they were there. It was in 2003 and a surprise, for me, seeing a band that looks visually similar, with a more American sound, but had a lot of overlap with what we were doing here in Europe. Not just us, but other bands as well. So it was nice to see, on the other side of the pond, someone doing more or less the same thing in a different way. That was cool. And my favourite song of theirs? Lithium. Wake Me Up When You’re Sober. There’s a lot of songs I like.      

Can you give any hints about what you’ve done to make your show as ‘cool and memorable’ as you’ve said you want it to be? 

I don’t know if you remember the release of The Purge [video] with the face? That face, we’ve made into a huge, huge, huge statue for our stage. It can come apart, it can twist, it can turn, so there’s a lot of visual and mechanical stuff happening on stage. And I’m gonna fly again. I’m afraid of heights but somehow Robert [Westerholt, guitar], every time, finds something to get me into the air. It’s gonna make it a spectacular show and I know Evanescence are gonna do the same thing, but in their own way of course.  

Your last album, 2019’s ‘Resist’, was prophetic in the way it foreshadowed much of what has subsequently happened in the world.

It’s scary, huh? If it was released now I think people would say it was inspired by the themes that are happening today. We’ve always been politically engaged with what’s happening in the world and social dilemmas inspire us. There were things happening that are more or less common, but also lots of strange things. There’s always a war going on somewhere, unfortunately. You can imprint it on anything in the world, at any time, but because all of these things happened so rapidly after each other you could think ‘oh my god, it could have been written yesterday.’   

Over the last year or so you’ve released four new songs from your next album, which you’ve promised will be released in 2023. Don’t Pray For Me, in particular, seems to be another timely social commentary and feels like a continuation of what you started on ‘Resist.’

I wrote an essay for a metal magazine a year ago, for international women’s day, and talked about my views on abortion, that you should do more about prevention instead of, for instance, like in Poland where the law’s changing. I’m not from Poland but, because I did that essay, I know what’s happening, and also in America, same kind of thing, where they’re changing the laws. Especially for kids in schools—they’re not allowed to have sex education any more because of these religious parties. 

What I find difficult, like in America, is they try to make laws for everyone from a religious perspective. I find that very dangerous because religion can be beautiful, but don’t push it on people who might not believe, or believe something different, don’t feel comfortable with it or are struggling to become who they need to be and it’s taking the oxygen out of life. Especially for kids growing up, having a difficult time, trying to be who they want to be and living in very religious communities where they are being told they’re bad if they don’t believe the way others believe. I’m very much about pro-individual freedom, thinking for yourself, making your own choices, finding your own way in life. It’s so important and we’re going back in time with these laws. It’s not a positive development.  Don’t Pray For Me is about that.          

What was it about the sound of German metalcore act Annisokay that made you want to collaborate with them on Shed My Skin?

They’re this very enthusiastic band that do everything themselves. The singer writes most of the songs, he makes the videos. They’re a whole self-made band and have an enormous sound, so refreshing and positive. Such humble people and very energetic on stage. Everything you want to see in a band. They inspired us to write something in that corner of the music genre and when we did we thought ‘why not ask them to join us?’ We loved doing the song with those guys. We’re going to see them in Germany again and are hoping they will join us onstage. We’ve got to ask them.      

Both those tracks, alongside The Purge and Entertain You, are going to be on the next album, but if it’s a 10 song effort fans will already have heard a lot of it, and therefore won’t be getting as much new material, once the record arrives. Does that factor into your thinking?

There’s still a big part of our fan base that wants a physical product. I think they’d be disappointed if they didn’t get that. But we’re gonna write new songs that will not be released. The reason you’ve already heard those four was because we wanted to release something for the difficult times during the pandemic. We already had that plan in mind beforehand because we’d released ‘Resist’ in ‘19 but had been playing it since ‘18. So I wanted to bring something new to the table and that’s why we wrote Entertain You. When the pandemic began we started releasing more than we intended to, but it’s been a good thing because we saw a lot of exposure for different songs, from different sides, and that was cool because it did keep the band alive. Meaning that we could do something during those difficult times in a positive way for us and our fans.       

You described 'Resist' as “your take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge” and said it was one small step and you wanted to take things even further in future. What new stylistic boundaries are you pushing on the new album?  

We try to challenge ourselves to still sound like Within Temptation but in a new jacket every time. Entertain You is completely out of the ordinary. Very energetic but rhythmically quite different. It’s the way we try to challenge ourselves. Trying to find different music genres to integrate into our music. It’s not like we think we can change music, it sounds a bit arrogant if you’re really like that, but we want to find different music genres to inspire us to make a different version of ourselves every time. And renew ourselves to sound like a band from 2022 instead of 2000.  

Last time out the orchestral parts were more minimalistic and subtle. Will that be the case again or would you like to combine the ‘Resist’ approach with your classic symphonic backdrop?

It’s going to be more like the ‘Resist’ album, but a bit older as well. Don’t Pray For Me has this new vibe but with an orchestral sound that’s a bit more like ‘Mother Earth.’ So it’s trying to find a little bit of the old as well, because we do feel it’s nice to bring back some orchestral parts and find a good form for that. 

Looking back on the last 25 years, how does it feel to have been one of the group’s who’ve pioneered a genre of music that’s gone from being quite a cult thing to a huge attraction, where bands of your ilk are headlining arenas and festivals?

People ask me this question more regularly lately because we have passed 25 years, but I never reflected on that because I’ve always looked forwards instead of to the past. It’s beautiful that we were part of a development that happened during that time and didn’t realise that we were. Looking back it’s more clear. You see with more perspective. It’s beautiful that we were part of that and hopefully planted some seeds in little girls' minds who are trying to make their way now. If you can inspire other people, that’s the most beautiful thing you can do as a band. To pass that musical vibe onto a new generation.

Evanescence // Within Temptation // Veridia // The Worlds Collide Tour // Live Review // The First Direct Arena // Leeds

evanescence and within temptation worlds collide tour

3 years later and after 2 postponements, The World’s Collide Tour is finally going ahead. We’ve been waiting a long time to see Evanescence and Within Temptation brings their co-headline tour to the UK and after seeing glimpses of the first few shows, we can barely contain our excitement for tonight!!

Up first is Veridia who is another strong female-led band. Prior to this tour, I have to admit that they had not hit my radar but after a quick preview on Spotify, it’s clear why these guys are opening the tour. Starting with “Blood Diamond” there is a strong middle Eastern influence to their sound which is exemplified when Deena Jakoub drops her mic and picks up some LED fans to dance with. She is a powerhouse of a frontwoman and vocalist as she gets the crowd warmed up between songs and showcases her vocal range during them. There is no doubt that these guys have a strong metal sound but the backing tracks and melodies in the vocals make this stand out as something special. Amy Lee certainly thinks so having invited the band on the tour and also joining them on stage to play the piano for “I’ll Never Be Ready” which Jakoubs explains is a song close to her heart as it’s about the loss of her dad and something she bonded with Lee over after she also lost her brother. After a heartwarming moment like that Jacobs knows that they need to pump the energy back up and with the crowd clapping along gives us “At the End of the World” and “I Won’t Stay Down” to close the set.

As it’s a co-headlining tour, the last slot changes each night and tonight it’s Evanescence’s turn to hit the stage first. Having only seen these guys perform with a full orchestra, I’m excited to see a full-stage show. As the lights go down and the intro track plays, a light show before the screen gives a brief countdown for the band to take to the stage. Amy Lee appears at the back of the stage as they kick things off with “Broken Pieces Shine”. From the moment she hits the stage to the moment she leaves, Lee has an incredible stage presence that you can’t take your eyes away from. Her voice is phenomenal as she moves from soft melodies to heavier metal sounds. The setlist is very heavy as it takes it all the way back to “Going Under” while also including many of the more recent songs such as “Made of Stone”. That’s not to say that there’s no time for Amy to get behind the piano for “Far From Heaven” and “Your Star” and provide some of those haunting vocals that she’s so well known for. The rest of the band is on fire tonight too as they stand tall as the backbone of the performance. All of this is accompanied by one of the best light shows I have to say I’ve ever seen. From the lit-up risers to the LED backlights to the patterned lights above the piano, every single one works in perfect harmony with the music bringing a whole extra level of drama to the performance. As we head into the last half hour of the set, the band take it back to a very heavy version of “Call Me When You’re Sober” and “Imaginary” which the crowd love. There’s time for 2 more of the newer hits with the inspirational “Use Your Voice” and “Blind Belief” before a huge ending. With such a long-awaited tour, it’s only fitting to end with two of the band’s biggest hits. Starting with “My Immortal” the crowd are quick to sing along before taking it all the way to “Bring Me to Life”. It’s been an incredible show and well worth the wait to see Evanescence hit the stage again!

After a huge changeover on the stage, it’s time for Within Temptation to take over. Just looking at the stage, it’s clear we’re in for a very different performance from these guys. As the smoke fills the stage and video visuals begin, Within Temptation has a very different way of bringing the drama to the stage. As the main circular lighting rig lifts, Sharon Den Adel is ready to go behind it as they start the show with “See Who I Am”. These guys have a

different energy to them as the band runs around the stage making the most of the set. This continues through “Faster” and “Paradise(What About Us?)” as the lighting rivals that of Evanescence. Throughout this, the lighting rig which had hidden Sharon at the start is now raised above the stage and playing the original song videos. As the set continues into “Angels”, Sharon is raised above the huge head that stands at the back of the stage as the floor is filled with smoke. The show keeps on giving though as the pyro kicks in for “Stand My Ground” and flames shoot from the stage. At this point Sharon takes a moment and asks the crowd if they would fight for their country as she dedicates “Raise your Banner” to Ukraine and brings a Ukrainian Flag out to wave as she performs to a backdrop of more flames. At the end of the song she comes forward to speak to a fan on the front row who is from the Ukraine and becomes speechless before saying how glad she is that they are here safe. As the show continues, there’s more spectacular pyro with which the crowd are encouraged to raise their hands in time. The band’s performance throughout tonight is outstanding as they perform hit after hit with incredible precision and energy. While these guys have brought a full stage show, it doesn’t distract from how talented this band are. Sharon’s voice is incredible live too as she moves from the heavy melodies to operatic tones. Even suspended high above the stage she hits every note as though her feet are on solid ground and this is even more impressive when she admits that she doesn’t like flying! As we head towards the end of the night, there’s time for another big sing along with “What Have You Done” before closing with “Ice Queen” and “Mother Earth”. It’s safe to say it’s been one hell of a show.

The World’s Collide tour showcases some of the leading female fronted bands in the rock and metal genre. Both Evanescence and Within Temptation have their own unique styles and have put on two very different shows under one roof in one night. What these bands have in common though is that they are forces to be reckoned with and put on some of the most incredible stage shows. Here’s to hoping it’s not another 2 and a half years before they play again!

EVANESCENCE And WITHIN TEMPTATION's 'Worlds Collide' European Tour Postponed Once Again

EVANESCENCE and WITHIN TEMPTATION 's "Worlds Collide" European tour has once again been postponed. The trek, which was originally planned for 2020 and later moved to 2021 and then to March/April 2022, will now kick off in the fall.

EVANESCENCE said in a statement: "As the world is slowly reopening again, we felt very optimistic about the tour actually taking place in March and April. However - in a lot of countries there currently still are restrictions and we are forced to make a decision right now for logistical reasons.

"We are aware that many fans are preparing to make their plans to attend the shows, some of which involve travel and given the uncertainty as to exactly when certain countries will lift their restrictions, we are left with no choice but to reschedule the tour, hopefully for the final time. We expect to be able to announce the new dates in the next few days, which we anticipate will be in November and early December of this year.

"All tickets, including meet & greet packages and VIP upgrades will remain valid.

"We know you understand that many things are still outside of our control but we are very optimistic that we WILL be performing these shows and we kindly ask that you bear with us one more time while we arrange the tour so it can actually happen.

"Stay tuned for the new dates in the next few days. We miss and love you, and we will definitely see again. Stay safe."

EVANESCENCE 's latest album, "The Bitter Truth" , charted at No. 4 in the U.K., making it the band's fourth Top Five album in the country. EVANESCENCE 's first full-length release of all-new material in a decade, "The Bitter Truth" also debuted as the top-selling rock and alternative album in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music Connect .

Shortly after its arrival in March 2021, "The Bitter Truth" rose to the top of the iTunes album charts in 22 countries. Recorded during the pandemic, it confronts the dark realities of the world head-on. Yet its resounding message is one of light, and that pushing through is better than giving up.

A kiss-off to the naysayers and the cheats in the rearview mirror, "Better Without You" explodes with the "metal catharsis" that runs through 'The Bitter Truth' " ( Los Angeles Times ). The official music video for the track was directed by filmmaker Eric D. Howell ( "Ana's Playground" , "Voice From The Stone" ),who also directed the video for EVANESCENCE 's "Use My Voice" .

EVANESCENCE 's new music was produced by Nick Raskulinecz , who also worked on 2011's self-titled LP.

Despite not being able to tour, WITHIN TEMPTATION is still moving full speed ahead, having released three singles during the pandemic: "Entertain You" , "The Purge" and "Shed My Skin" , the latter of which is a collaboration with the German metalcore band ANNISOKAY .

The "Shed My Skin" music video received its official premiere one day prior to WITHIN TEMPTATION 's digital show "The Aftermath - A Show In A Virtual Reality" , which was held last July.

As the world is slowly reopening again, we felt very optimistic about the tour actually taking place in March and April.... Posted by Evanescence on  Friday, February 11, 2022

Evanescence And Within Temptation Add Extra Dates To Their Worlds Collide Tour

We’ve got a surprise for Belgium, Luxembourg and the UK: we are adding some extra shows end of April and beginning of May. Check out the extra dates!"

Chatting to Kerrang! recently , Amy and Sharon excitedly revealed all about the Worlds Collide tour, agreeing that both bands complement each other extremely well.

"We feel like we have our two separate worlds, separate lives across the ocean, but in a lot of ways there are some major similarities," considered Amy. "And to be able to bring these two worlds together for the first time just seems like a perfect match for both of us. Obviously there are differences, but you want that. You want contrast in the show but it’s cool to be able to see the similarities and embrace those, too.”

Sharon added that fans have been requesting both bands to tour together for quite some time.

“Of course, but that often happens with bands who have that overlap in fans," she said. "They always ask to do something together but maybe they don’t think it would ever come true. It’s a special one. In the past I remember a lot of my friends getting very excited when Megadeth and Metallica did that tour together many years ago. I remember everyone was very hyped up to see two of their favourite bands together, and it’s a similar sort of thing.”
