Now, five years later with up to 80,000 global visitors a month (depending on what the band is doing - touring or not), over 5,500 forum members, and 3,500 likes on Facebook we have only one thing to say: thank you. Thank you to all of the staff members over the years that have poured their heart and soul into the site, the contributors to our website that helped us grow, to everyone that has spread the word about LPLive, to everyone that has joined the website and added their thoughts and opinions on the band. A special shoutout goes to our host Dmitry (aka sotrix) - without you, none of this would have been possible.
And this is only the beginning. As long as LP continues to make music and tour the world, LPLive will be here.
For our fifth birthday, we wanted to offer you a show for download that many of you probably don't have. At the end of 2001, Linkin Park played two shows for the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show in Los Angeles, CA. It was their second time playing the show (after they played it in 2000) and it's the only time they were able to play both days of the show. The second night of their 2001 performances at AAC was their last show of 2001. The show is known for it being the only time that LP has played songs acoustically live (other than 'The Messenger', of course). 'My December', 'Pushing Me Away', 'Crawling' (featuring a guest appearance from Aaron Lewis of Staind), and 'In The End' were performed acoustically that night.
Describing our offer to you, [AndOne] writes, "There are many so called pre-FM CD's of the show out there (meaning the actual disc they used for the FM radio broadcast), often going by the names "Westwood Absolutely Live In Concert" or "Westwood High Voltage". Over the past years the show has been broadcasted many times, usually in a different song order and with one or two songs missing (see further details on the show page). So I took the best sounding, most complete version and patched the missing stuff in, to make it longest available version of this show in this quality. There are still a few speeches missing and the intro to 'A Place For My Head', which was included on neither of these CD's. I actually completed this 6 months ago, now it's about time to put it out there."
