The road trip will feature support acts Chevelle and Finger Eleven, and the whole shebang kicks off March 16 in Fresno, Calif. The trek wraps April 5 in Glens Falls, N.Y.

Tickets go on sale January 27.

Evanescence is also planning a third U.S. leg which will bring the band to arenas in major markets in the late spring/early summer.

The band returned to touring in 2006 after a two-year absence. The October release ofThe Open Door marked a rebirth of sorts for Amy Lee & Co; her band saw a meteoric rise in 2003 and ’04 with a huge hit album Fallen, and a massive accompanying tour.
