AMY LEE Says She Is Worried About EVANESCENCE Drawing Crowds

EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee has admitted to Launch Radio Networks that she was a little nervous about being able to draw enough fans to fill the seats on the band's current North American tour. "It's a little scary, because you always look at the numbers," Lee said. "Like, when we're booked to play a place that's maybe 15,000 or more people, that's a really large amount of people. And when you're thinking of it in terms of, like, 'I'm headlining, can we really pull that many people?', it does make you a little nervous, I guess. You're always, like, just kind of hoping until that last week, when you start to see them really selling, you're like, "Okay, good, whew! Awesome.' (laughs)"

SEETHER, BREAKING BENJAMIN and THREE DAYS GRACE also appear on the tour.
