Following their announcement of a date at London’s Eventim Apollo on June 14th which quickly sold out, multi-platinum rockers Evanescence are delighted to add a second date on June 13th.

Tickets are on sale now right here with limited VIP packages available that include a chance to watch the soundcheck and meet the band.

Led by Amy Lee's operatic and passionate vocals, Evanescence have sold nearly twenty-five million albums since the band's 2003 debut, 'Fallen'. The album's premiere single, 'Bring Me To Life' won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance.

Other massive hits followed including 'My Immortal', 'Going Under' and 'Call Me When You're Sober', establishing Evanescence as worldwide tour headliners. These dates will be the band's first in the UK for five years.

Amy comments: "Coming back to Europe has been a high priority for us and we are very excited for the shows this summer. The band has a special new energy right now and we are pushing ourselves and more than ever onstage, and enjoying ourselves immensely. Can't wait to share it with you!"

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
