Evanescence performed a special acoustic show in Russia earlier this week after the truck transporting their equipment was involved in an accident. Luckily no one was hurt in the crash.
The concert in Voronezh, Russia, was initially scheduled for the previous night but when the band learned of the accident, they postponed the show to the following evening. However, when the truck still hadn't arrived by Monday, they decided to go ahead anyway. Before the improvised acoustic performance, Evanescence singer Amy Lee informed the audience of the change with help from a translator.
"We're gonna have a special show tonight," Lee announced onstage. "The truck with all of our gear was in an accident. While everybody is OK and the gear is OK, it couldn't be here for tonight's show. We didn't come all the way here to cancel on you guys. So, instead, we rented some local instruments and put together an acoustic set. So we're gonna play an acoustic show tonight."
