Grammy-winning alternative rock band Evanescence played to an enthusiastic audience Tuesday night at the Ra'anana Amphitheater in the last show of their tour across Europe. Premiering their new lineup with lead singer Amy Lee at the helm, Tem Balsamo on guitar, Will Hunt on drums, Tim McCord on bass and Troy McLawhorn on guitar, Evanescence played a mixture of hits from the new album, The Open Door, with some old favorites from their 2004 hit Fallen. The hundreds of black-clad and metal-studded fans that packed into the stadium sang along and called for numerous encores of the band, which has been labeled everything from Christian to Gothic rock. In between sets, Lee told the audience how thankful she was to be ending her tour in Israel, and how the band almost missed the show after being held back at Ben Gurion Airport for more than 12 hours. Sinergia opened for the group, and fans seemed equally excited to see the local Israeli band take the stage.
