Halestorm's Lzzy Hale will perform with Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Cleveland


Halestorm frontman Lzzy Hale will join Trans-Siberian Orchestra on stage on December 30 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio to perform the song "Forget About The Blame (Moon Version)".

About how her collaboration with Trans-Siberian Orchestra came about, Lzzy told Billboard.com: "In all honesty, it was a complete honor and surprise to me. It kind of came through the pipeline that they were looking for my contact, so of course I'm like, 'Hey, what's up?' 'Well, we have this great song and it's a love song' and, as put it, they wanted somebody who had 'the whiskey dust' in their voice. They ended up coming to me in Nashville during our last little stint of time off and cutting it, and it was awesome, just an amazing group to work with."

Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Robin Borneman sings on both versions of the song. O'Neill explained to Billboard.com: "I needed someone to bring out the female side of it, so we decided we would have two singers sing that song for a different perspective. Lzzy Hale has a great voice. She's a great rocker, a lot of emotion. Robin and Lzzy, in my opinion, knocked it out of the ballpark."
