Alternative rock band Evanescence kept entertainment journalists waiting on Thursday – apparently due to a missing hairpiece belonging to lead vocalist Amy Lee.
But when the strikingly beautiful Amy Lee eventually arrived – in her trademark gothic look – it was clear who the heaviest band would be at Friday’s My Coke Fest gig.
The male members of Evanescence were all dressed in black with boots, dreadlocks and face piercings. Evanescence are the headlining act at the My Coke Fest. The band were presented an award by their record company, Sony BMG, for selling in excess of 150 000 albums for their first two releases.
Amy Lee said that while she had been here before in her personal capacity, performing in South Africa would be “a whole new experience for her”. She had a long relationship with South African musician Shaun Morgan, lead vocalist of world-famous grunge band Seether.
