«We’re going to make it worth the wait», Evanescence’s Amy Lee promises
Two goddesses of metal, two stunning women, two angelic voices — one could only dream Amy Lee of Evanescence and Within Temptation’s Sharon den Adel would join forces and do a tour together. But dreams sometimes come true!
The two bands have just announced a co-headlining tour, taking place in Europe next spring. The tour, titled Worlds Collide, is going to kick off in Brussels, Belgium on April 4. Tickets will go on sale already this Friday at this location.
On the European run, the two powerhouses are also going to visit France, Germany, Switzerland, UK, Italy and The Netherlands. And we hope for more dates to be added as the tour is approaching. Check out the list of the announced dates below.
Needless to say, the frontwomen of both bands are beyond excited to share the stage every night and see each other perform.
“We’ve had people ask us about doing something together for a long time, and we’re going to make it worth the wait! Looking forward to hearing Sharon’s gorgeous voice every night,” says Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee.
As the title of rock goddess travels from one female singer to another, you might have thought there’s a sort of a rivalry between the singers of Within Temptation and Evanescence. But according to Den Adel, the two women have a lot in common.
“It was really great meeting Amy and the rest of the band recently,” says the Dutch singer. “I think we have a lot in common, but most of all, I’m sure that we share the same passion and fire for what we love doing most. I’m really looking forward to touring Europe together and to make it memorable!”
See the news both bands have posted on social media today and get as thrilled as we are to see them live next year!

Within Temptation’s festival season has come to an end for the rest of this year. Last Saturday, the band lit up the stage at Appelpop in Tiel, The Netherlands and wrapped up the massive summer festival run.
As for the nearest Evanescence shows, the band has recently added a performance at Slipknot’s Knotfest Meets Forcefest at Parque Deportivo Oceania in Mexico on November 30-December 1. The festival will be headlined by Slipknot (obviously, since it’s Knotfest) and Rob Zombie.
