This is not how the highly-anticipated Evanescence and Halestorm show was supposed to go down at the DCU Center in Worcester on Thursday.
In the wee hours of Thursday morning, Lzzy Hale tweeted this:

Heavy Consequence reports that the band woke up in Worcester around 3 a.m. to find their tour bus was on fire. Thankfully, they weren’t on the bus: they were sleeping in hotel rooms nearby. And did they still play their set Thursday night at the DCU Center? You bet your ass they did.
Guitarist Joe Hottinger thanked the Worcester Fire Department for their quick response and shared some additional pics of the aftermath below.
