[EN] Catching up with Amy Lee Of Evanescence At The Tenacious D Show At House Of Blues Atlantic City (AtlanticCityBlog.Caesars.com)
So Tenacious D performed an insanely awesome sold out show at House Of Blues Atlantic City at Showboat last night and one of the many reasons why it’s so cool to have such killer acts perform there is because sometimes other kick butt celebs stop by to see the show! Last night, we ran into none other than Amy Lee from Evanescence!
Rad, right? She’s such a down to earth, talented lady, so we absolutely had to ask her a few Q’s. Check out what she had to say, below.
TAC: What made you take a trip to Atlantic City for the Tenacious D show? Obviously their music is a little different from yours!
Amy Lee: First of all, I am an old school D fan. Since the cable show in the ‘90s, it’s pretty much this cult thing for every musician I’ve ever met. Even back then, I think musicians loved Tenacious D because number 1, it’s hilarious. Jack Black is amazing and of course KG. More importantly, I think the reason it’s so great is because the music is really good. They’re really extremely talented. The jokes are in the lyrics, but they’re doing all this awesome, complicated stuff that you kind of want to learn! It’s fun to listen to as a joke, but it’s also really catchy and really good. My brother is in town and we’re hanging out. It’s his favorite thing right now. It will be the very first Tenacious D show for both of us, so it’s going to be a highlight of the trip for sure.
TAC: Do you think you watch shows differently as an artist yourself compared to a regular fan?
Amy Lee: Maybe because I know what it is to be a performer. There’s a lot that I appreciate even in the little things. If Tenacious D’s music sucked, I don’t think it would be funny. It’s cool to watch because you’re watching someone do something really, really well, but also not take themselves too seriously. I think that’s kind of rare.
TAC: You were here not too long ago back in August with Evanescence for a stop on the Carnival Of Madness Tour. Do you have any particular memories of that show here at HOB?
Amy Lee: It was two nights in a row which is kind of weird because you have to trick yourself and tell yourself you’re performing for different people and that they didn’t see you do the exact same thing the night before. It was an absolutely good experience. We love going to the House Of Blues and hanging out in the Foundation Room. We play shows of all sizes. Sometimes on a tour, you get into the habit of playing similar sized venues and of course arena shows are amazing, but when you get to play the House Of Blues, it’s the perfect size. You can see people and it feels like you’re in it with them. Sometimes people just turn into a sea when the crowd is too big and you feel kind of alone. I like the intimacy of a club show. We’ve had a lot of good memories at House Of Blues’ all over the country. I think when we were first touring in 2003 when our first album came out, New Orleans was the first House Of Blues that we ever played. It was so cool because we had never been to New Orleans before and there was so much travelling we were doing that year. It was all new to me. It was so exciting to walk down Bourbon Street and then go play the House Of Blues. House Of Blues’ and Evanescence have been friends for quite a while now. They’ve been a big part of our journey.
