The release chronicles a May 25 show at Paris' Le Zenith, with the DVD portion directed by Hamish Hamilton (Madonna, U2). Audio versions of the live tracks are featured on the accompanying CD, as is the previously unreleased studio recording of "Missing."
"Anywhere But Home" blends such hits as "Bring Me To Life," "My Immortal" and "Going Under" with lesser-known tracks such as "My Last Breath" and "Imaginary" from Evanescence's smash 2003 debut, "Fallen," plus a cover of Korn's "Thoughtless."
The DVD portion is loaded with extra content, including videos for "My Immortal," "Going Under," "Bring Me To Life" and "Everybody's Fool," an hour's worth of behind-the-scenes footage and surprises hidden within the navigation menus.
The band is presently off the road and writing songs for the follow-up to "Fallen," which has sold more than 5.8 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Evanescence is up for favorite band, duo or group - pop and rock at the upcoming American Music Awards, to be handed out Nov. 14 live on ABC.
