Review Tuesday: Evanescence & Lindsey Stirling @ Jones Beach Theater

 
Evanescence & Lindsey Stirling
Jones Beach Theater
08/11/2018

Ever hear of Groupon? There's a thing called LIVING SOCIAL which is almost the same thing. When they came up with tickets for this show Mrs Baxojayz really wanted to go, as we have seen Evanescence every time they have come to town. This tour includes a symphony orchestra. 

Lindsey Stirling
I never heard of this person before. All I knew was that she is a violinist.

Setlist: 
  1. The Arena
  2. Moon Trance
  3. Shadows
  4. Shatter Me (with Amy Lee)
  5. Bring Me To Life (Evanescence song) (Homemade music video from Lindsey as teenager)
  6. Lost Girls
  7. Take Flight
  8. Crystallize
  9. Roundtable Rival
  10. Hold My Heart
  11. First Light
  12. Mirage
  13. Don't Let This Feeling Fade
  14. Beyond the Veil with Phantom of the Opera Medley
She hit the stage and I was in shock. My classically trained violin sensibilities couldn't believe what this woman was doing. What sort of posture is that? She's playing a violin like a lead guitar while dancing around all over the stage in intricately choreographed sequences. Once I was able to make peace with what I was watching, I was actually able to enjoy the show. The visuals were stunning, the music was balanced perfectly, choreography was seamless. This woman even managed costume changes between almost all of the songs. The set was really fun and pretty exciting, and exceeded expectations by far. Color me impressed.

Evanescence
Evanescence is touring to support the latest record SYNTHESIS. It's very new-age-y, electronic, and mellow. And the band is pretty much just Amy Lee. I don't think she even introduced the other members of the band.

Setlist:
  1. Overture
  2. Never Go Back
  3. Lacrymosa
  4. End of the Dream
  5. My Heart Is Broken
  6. Lithium
  7. Bring Me to Life
  8. Unraveling
  9. Imaginary
  10. Secret Door
  11. Across the Universe (The Beatles cover)
  12. Hi-Lo (with Lindsey Stirling)
  13. Lost in Paradise
  14. Your Star
  15. My Immortal
  16. The In-Between
  17. Imperfection
Encore:
  1. No More Tears / Alive (with Lindsey Stirling) (Ozzy Ozbourne/Sia mashup)
I am conflicted with this set. The music was good, and Amy's singing was excellent, but all their songs are almost easy listening now so it almost caused me to tall asleep at least two times during the show. The two most exceptional song performed were Across the Universe and No More Tears which are both covers. Everything else just seemed so muted down. It was all performed well and sounded good, but was getting close to boring. In fact, I was shocked with the numbers of people bailing on the show after Lindsey left the stage. What happened here? If I were to venture a theory, this last record is such a departure for Amy Lee that I think she's working on some larger future project, possibly something theatrical like a show in Las Vegas or on Broadway. But that's just my theory.

Review Tuesday: TWINS OF EVIL: THE SECOND COMING TOUR 2018 @ Jones Beach Theater


TWINS OF EVIL
THE SECOND COMING TOUR 2018
Jones Beach Theater, NY

Surprisingly, Mrs. Bax0jayz is a huge Rob Zombie fan.  Couple that detail to when Ticketmaster had their $13 sale on Friday the 13th earlier in the year and she grabbed tixx to go!

I left work early. Hot and sunny. Picked up a friend - hot and sunny. Picked up Mrs. Bax0jayz - hot and sunny. Got to the show - gloomy and chilly with the smell of rain in the wind. DAMN. 

We went to our seat and the opening act was already performing...

DEADLY APPLES
None of us ever heard of this Canadian band. They sounded pretty good though. From what I fouond online they usually play a three song set (?!?!). Either that or people only ever knew three songs of theirs. At any rate, they had a very good sound, better than most opening bands. They didn't overdo their levels so their sound was very clean. The vocals might've been a tad low, but that is my only complaint.

Setlist
  1. Infection
  2. Further
  3. Self-Inflicted Oppression
They put on a good set, and left the stage graciously thanking the headlining acts for bringing them on tour. They left the stage around 7:35. The crews cleared them off and set up for Marilyn Manson when the announcement came at 7:50, "Due to incoming HEAVY WEATHER we ask everyone to go back into the grandstands and take shelter. Once the storm goes by and it's safe, the show will commence IN ITS ENTIRETY."

So we waited. 

And waited. 

And waited until nearly 10 PM when they announced that there was no end in sight for the storm and that the show was officially cancelled. GO HOME. Great. 

Had the show gone one, this is what we were likely to see based on previous performances during this tour:

MARILYN MANSON
Setlist
  1. Cruci-Fiction in Space
  2. Angel With the Scabbed Wings
  3. This Is the New Shit
  4. Disposable Teens
  5. mOBSCENE
  6. Say10
  7. The Dope Show (with "I Don't Like the Drugs ( But the Drugs Like Me)" intro)
  8. Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (Eurythmics cover)
  9. Kill4Me
Encore:
  • Tourniquet (tour debut)
  • Antichrist Superstar
  • The Beautiful People (with fans on stage)
Encore 2:
  • Cry Little Sister (Gerard McMann cover)
ROB ZOMBIE
Setlist
