EVANESCENCE, COLD, REVIS, CAUTERIZE and FINGER ELEVEN will team up for upcoming the Nintendo Fusion Tour. The trek will feature live music as well as a host of Nintendo games.

"We're really looking forward to doing this tour," EVANESCENCE frontwoman Amy Lee said in a statement. "When we're on the road, we play music all night and Nintendo all day. This tour lets us bring two of our favorite things together."

The trek appears likely to kick off Aug. 4 in Los Angeles and end in late September in the Pacific Northwest. Tickets for select shows will go on sale Saturday (June 28) via Ticketmaster.

The Nintendo Fusion Tour will be produced by Clear Channel Entertainment and booked by the Agency Group's Dave Kirby. Tour sponsorship partners include Blender magazine, electronics retailer Circuit City and online music site Launch.

The tour's projected headliners EVANESCENCE recently notched a double U.K. victory as their Wind-Up debut, "Fallen", topped the album chart there and its single "Bring Me to Life" held onto No. 1 on the singles chart.

In the U.S., "Fallen" peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200, where it is currently No. 11. "Bring Me to Life" topped Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks tally and reached No. 5 on the Hot 100, where it is No. 8 in its 16th week on the chart. The band's new single, "Going Under" is new at No. 40 on the Modern Rock Tracks list.
