Taylor Momsen‘s band the Pretty Reckless are opening shows for Evanescence, an arrangement that the former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress calls “surreal.”

“I’m a big fan of Evanescence, so it’s really exciting for us to be able to open for them,” Momsen told MTV. Momsen added of Evanescence singer Amy Lee, “She’s so awesome and so talented. We watched some of the show last night and it was just great. We’re definitely really excited to be able to play with them.”

Lee returned the love, saying, “I think Pretty Reckless is a great fit. She’s got a great voice, real sweet. She actually said that Evanescence was her first concert a really long time ago. That made me feel old, but very, very flattered.”

Momsen said that her band never has a set list, but they tend to stick to the same batch of originals and covers, given that they only have a limited amount of material to work with. She added that they are continuing to write new songs on the road.

The Pretty Reckless’ debut album ‘Light Me Up’ was released last year. Evanescence’s latest self-titled record just debuted at No. 1 on Billboard. Rival Sons are also opening acts on the current tour lineup, while Fair to Midland will join the tour when it moves to the U.K. in November.
