Stone Temple Pilots is going to headline the 2013 Stars of the Season Fundraiser benefiting the Cardon Children's Medical Center, as Stars of the Season just announced on their facebook
Chester and his wife Talinda, have both been heavily involved in this Medical Center, Chester by visiting the children and performing at the fundraiser, and Talinda by visiting with their therapy dog Bruiser and being on the board for the fundraiser to help organize it.
According to this article
, it will be his fourth year to headline the event.
[Three] years ago, Bennington shared the benefit's spotlight with Art Alexakis of Everclear. [Two years ago], his other musical project, Dead by Sunrise, performed. [Last year], he assembled an all-star band with the Cult's Billy Morrison, Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens, Elias Andras of Dead by Sunrise and Robbie Merrill of Godsmack.
The show will be on October 26, 2013
What do you think the possibility is that the band will release new music this year? I can't believe it hasn't even been a year yet since LIVING THINGS came out. The band has had a lot of downtime since the record has been released compared to other albums, where they seemed to have played a lot more concerts.
Linkin Park has been working on music (the soundtrack + score, apparently) for The Mall since at least September 2012. The soundtrack will be produced by Rob Cavallo and Bill Boyd.
The Mall was announced
in May 2011, over two years ago.
Additionally, the band has been working on a new album. We have heard basically nothing about The Mall....and you'd even have to search a good bit before you found out that the music is even being worked on by the band. I'm sure they didn't just work on The Mall ONLY from September to now and they are now just starting a new album - they've probably worked on the two interchangeably.
I've heard that the August shows are a one-off tour and they will be returning to the studio afterward.
My question is - will we get some new Linkin Park music this year? Either The Mall music or a new album. Or something else. What do you think?

In a move that has caught seemingly everyone from the Linkin Park fanbase to the Stone Temple Pilot fanbase to music fans in general off guard, Chester joined the Stone Temple Pilots on stage at the 2013 KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, CA as the lead singer for the band. The band was the "surprise guest" of the show, similar to what Foo Fighters did to Linkin Park in 2011 at the show - showing up and playing unannounced as a surprise. A timed release of a brand new song "Out Of Time" to KROQ followed the performance, with STP issuing a press release and Chester even confirming that he hasn't left Linkin Park.KROQ.com
adds: "If seeing is believing, the audience at Weenie Roast 2013 definitely left as believers in the power of music. The unbelievable magic of the night was doubly-amplified after all the amazing sets earlier when sonic swamis of alt-stadium rock, Stone Temple Pilots, brought Chester Bennington from Linkin Park out as a featured vocalist."SETLIST:
02. Big Bang Baby
03. Wicked Garden
04. Sex Type Thing
05. Out Of Time (Live Debut)
06. Interstate Love Song
07. Dead And Bloated
08. Trippin' On A Hole In A Paper Heart
A few songs of the webcast can be found below. Hopefully more surfaces soon!
They have debuted a new single
"Out Of Time". Listen to the full song and even download a copy for yourself here.
The STP website
has been updated with a full press release by the band as well as pictures
of the guys and Chester."Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” said guitarist Dean DeLeo. “We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result."
"I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me," explained Bennington. "When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance. The guys in Linkin Park have been incredibly supportive of me undertaking this project while I’ve continued to work on new music with LP.""Chester
adds on Twitter:"Just played the first show with STP! It was fucking AMAZING!"
"Check out our new song available for download free now at http://stonetemplepilots.com"

What do you think of Chester joining Stone Temple Pilots?EDIT: Chester
will be on KROQ's Kevin & Bean
Here is a video of the new song 'Out Of Time' live from the Weenie Roast show:
Rolling Stone has posted a very positive review of the performance, which you can read in full here."As the rotating stage turned around following a joyous set from Vampire Weekend, the opening notes of Stone Temple Pilots’ "Vasoline" filled the Verizon Wireless Ampitheater. On the drum riser, a man stood with his back to the audience until it came time to deliver the opening line, "One time a thing occurred to me." And with that, the venue exploded as Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington turned and leaped into action, filling in on this night for the recently fired Scott Weiland."
Edit: Chester has confirmed that he is now the lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Linkin Park. Also they are considering an album and tour. Video here

It's May and that means it's time for another LPLive media release!
Quoting what I said on the Chester IEM release
last month, "if you're a collector of live audio from Linkin Park's live career, you'll know that some of the best shows are the ones from Japan. Tokyo 2001, Tokyo 2003, Yokohama 2003, Osaka 2006, etc."
For this exclusive, we decided to post the full recording from Linkin Park's night 2 in Tokyo on September 11, 2011. This show was a part of LPU Summit #5, which encompassed both shows in Tokyo (specifically Chiba). The Chester IEM contains songs from night 1 (which we will release soon), but this is the full night 2 show. LPLive staff member [AndOne] calls this, in his opinion, the best recording of the A Thousand Suns World Tour.
And I agree completely.
If you were following the tour in September 2011, you'll remember that the big highlight from this show is 'Bleed It Out' with the 'No Roads Left' bridge. Mike sang verse 1 and the chorus of 'No Roads Left' over the bridge of 'Bleed It Out' and then the band went into their usual 'A Place For My Head' portion of the bridge after that. After being rehearsed in 2008 and rumored to join the setlists on Projekt Revolution 2008, 'No Roads Left' (a bonus track on Minutes To Midnight) never ended up being played live and the band later said that it was because the song never "sounded right" to them in a live setting. This show in Tokyo and the following show in Yokohama
were the only two times that Mike sang part of 'No Roads Left' live!

In between the Deftones' European Tour in March 2001, where Linkin Park opened the tour, and Ozzfest in June 2001, Linkin Park played a short "US-to-Europe Tour"
which included a mix of headlining shows across the globe and about ten festivals. One of these festivals was Zeta's Bonzai Show in Miami, FL at the Bayfront Amphitheatre.
Sometimes recordings from shows surface after three or four years, but in this case, lp_bartek and I were able to obtain the master upgrade
of the Miami show from April 27, 2001
straight from the taper. We aren't sure of the exact setlist for this show as he unfortunately only recorded about 23 minutes of the set. However, the show page
does have what we know about the show (the seven songs that were recorded plus a guess at the setlist).
This is the infamous show where Chester jumped on top of a porta potty mid-show
and luckily this moment is captured in the recording since it occurs during 'Points Of Authority'! Overall the band is very energetic at this show, the crowd is good, and Jared from (hed)p.e. even comes out on 'One Step Closer'!DOWNLOAD (DIME) | 3.71 GB
