Show was short but swinging

Amy Lee and Evanescence certainly delivered on their promise of a hard-hitting show when they played at AsiaWorld Expo on Tuesday night. After a lively nine-song set from British band Bush warmed up the crowd, Lee came out swinging with the energetic new single What You Want off the band's latest, self-titled album.

Tuned into Asia's beat

Gothic rock band' and 'bubbly' lead singer don't sound like they should go together - especially when their songs tend to be on the darker and sadder side of things. However, Amy Lee of the American rock band Evanescence was all pep during a recent interview with Young Post.

Fringe dweller

Plucked from obscurity

AND THEN THERE were 17. The finals of the Tom Lee SoundBase Acoustic Band Competition are on next Friday - but already the event has been something of a minor miracle.

Clubbing with Cupid

'I AM MARK,' says the sticker slapped on to my chest by Amy Lee upon entrance to her so-called Pair Off Party. Tonight's theme is 'famous movie couples', and I have just become a character from Bridget Jones's Diary. My mission for the evening is simple: to find Bridget.
