LPLive continues to be the most comprehensive concert guide for one of the most successful bands of the decade, with everything one might need in exploring the performance history of Linkin Park and their side projects.
And of course, there are countries that haven't been fortunate enough to get a show by the band yet, such as India, Lebanon, Vietnam, Serbia, Luxembourg, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, etc. The band is still making its way to new places each touring cycle though: Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, and Turkey during the MTM Touring Cycle, Argentina, Chile, United Arab Emirates, and Israel during the ATS Touring Cycle, and Romania and Ukraine so far on the LIVING THINGS Touring Cycle.
One thing worth mentioning is that Sweden is the only country in the world that has had MORE canceled shows by Linkin Park than shows PLAYED by Linkin Park. In 2001, 2003 and 2008 they had canceled shows (one each of those years), while the band managed to play the country in 2007 and 2011.
Lastly, there are states in the USA that the band has either never played or hasn't been to in a while. Besides Alaska and Hawaii, Linkin Park has never played in Delaware, North Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, or Wyoming.
While Iowa was fortunate enough to get four shows in 2000, one in 2001 and one in 2003 (six in four years), the band has not returned since 2003. Here are a list of those states that haven't had a show in a while:
Linkin Park will be returning to Manila, Philippines on August 13th. This will be the band's second show in the Philippines, with the first coming all the way back on June 15th, 2004 (show page here). The show will take place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, a brand new venue that opened in 2012.
The promoter of the event, Scala Events, has updated their Facebook cover photo to Linkin Park and said a huge announcement is coming May 8th, so the "official announcement" will come tomorrow. LinkinParkPH gets the credit on this one since they've had the info on this show for a while!
This show will join the four others already announced on the Asian Tour for LIVING THINGS to bring the tour to five shows right now: 10.08.2013 Tokyo, JP, Summer Sonic 11.08.2013 Osaka, JP, Summer Sonic 13.08.2013 Manila, Philippines, Mall of Asia Arena 15.08.2013 Chek Lap Kok, HK, Asia-World Arena 17.08.2013 Taipei, TW, Taipei Arena
What city would you like to see the band add to their Asian Tour next?
5/8 EDIT:Confirmed by Linkin Park: "Linkin Park have added a show in Manila, Philippines on August 13. Pre-sale tickets are available for LPU members starting Friday at LPUnderground.com."
When the LIVING THINGS preorder went live on linkinpark.com, many of you opted in for the subscription to receive "LIVING THINGS REMIXED." With this remix subscription, you were to receive one remix for each month the next 8 months starting with June 2012. That would put the end date at January 2013. However, only seven months worth of remixes were released, as documented in our thread from June here.
Remixes released include: 'BURN IT DOWN (RAC remix)' (June) 'BURN IT DOWN (Paul Van Dyk mix)' (July) 'BURN IT DOWN (Swoon Remix)' (August) 'UNTIL IT BREAKS (Datsik Remix)' (September) 'ROADS UNTRAVELED (Rad Omen Remix feat. Bun B )' (October) * Also the band had a fanmade remix 'BURN IT DOWN (Bobina Remix)' that they wanted to share for this one. 'UNTIL IT BREAKS (Money Mark Remix)' (November) 'POWERLESS (Enferno Remix)' (December)
This would put the number of remixes released at 7 (with an additional fan mix as a bonus). That is of course 8 remixes, but at the end of the December email, it said: "Thanks for your support. Look for another remix next month."
Additionally, the 'LOST IN THE ECHO' remix contest from September 2013 had this listed as one of the prizes for not only the Grand Prize Winner, but the Popular Vote Winner as well: "Have their remix released to Linkin Park fans who had pre-ordered LIVING THINGS"
This means TWO 'LOST IN THE ECHO' remixes (one of them being the "Dual Personality Mix" and the other being the "Soundcrafters Remix") are missing from the LIVING THINGS REMIXED subscription as well as one final remix for January 2013.
Clips of additional LIVING THINGS remixes are still appearing in new LPTV episodes, most recently with a 'CASTLE OF GLASS' remix appearing in the Australia Part 2 episode of LPTV from April 29th.
Shortly after the Rock im Park 2012 show, BR in Germany broadcasted three songs from the show on TV - 'LIES GREED MISERY', 'Points Of Authority' and 'Waiting For The End'.
On April 26th, 2013 they randomly decided to show another hour of the show:
01. Given Up 02. Faint 03. From The Inside 04. Somewhere I Belong 05. Numb (video screen visuals) 06. LIES GREED MISERY 07. Waiting For The End 08. Breaking The Habit (video screen visuals) 09. LOATR/SOTD/Iridescent (Ballad Medley) 10. BURN IT DOWN 11. What I've Done 12. New Divide 13. In The End 14. Papercut 15. One Step Closer
Unfortunately, 'Bleed It Out' with the proposal was not shown but luckily we now have sixteen songs (these 15 plus 'Points Of Authority') from this show. However, you can now download this second broadcast below. Be sure to grab it quickly as it is possible while the links are hot, as the download technically could get pulled from DIME.
Also, a huge shoutout goes to Thomas Eger for having his flag (featuring the Linkin Park fansites, including LPLive) featured on stage at not just this show, but Rock am Ring too! Nice!
Usually we don't post about specific venues closing down over time, but this one is definitely an exception. Gibson Amphitheatre (formerly known as Universal Amphitheatre) is closing this September. Many of you will recognize this venue as where KROQ holds the annual Almost Acoustic Christmas concert. Linkin Park has played the AAC show in 2000 (show page here), twice in 2001 (show pages here and here), once in 2003 (show page here), once in 2007 (show page here), and most recently in December of 2012, just a few months ago (show page here).
'My December' also made its live debut at this venue:
This venue has been the site of quite a few great Linkin Park live moments, from the only performances of 'Pushing Me Away', 'In The End', and 'Crawling' (w/ Aaron Lewis from Staind) acoustically to the UCLA BRUIN marching band joining the band in 2007 and much more. 2003's performance of 'Breaking The Habit' (just the eleventh time played) was the first show in which the online community was able to hear the live version of the song due to KROQ webcasting the show.
"(Los Angeles, CA / Wednesday - April 24, 2013) This fall, a celebrated chapter in Los Angeles' rich musical history will come to a close when the Gibson Amphitheatre shuts its doors in September. The landmark venue will cease operations at that time due to the end of the building's lease agreement.
As a celebration of the many legendary artists who have played its stage and the tremendous performances that have thrilled millions of fans, Live Nation's Southern California office will assemble a very special lineup of shows as a fitting farewell. More details will be announced soon."
Although Linkin Park is in the studio recording the soundtrack and score to The Mall as well as their followup album to LIVING THINGS, we are sure this statement will fuel speculation that Live Nation will attempt to get the band to play a show at the venue this year. Maybe this will happen, maybe it won't.
It is unclear where the Almost Acoustic Christmas show will move to - perhaps Irvine's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, where KROQ hosts the Weenie Roast show, or the Staples Center.
Omaze.com has a new contest that allows a winner to visit Linkin Park in the studio this summer. This goes along with the speculation that the band has completed or almost completed work on the score and soundtrack for The Mall and will soon or have recently moved on to work on their followup album to LIVING THINGS.
The winner receives... - You +1 will get VIP access to a live recording session and the chance to win a rare autographed poster or drum head - Airfare & hotel included - Every entry helps provide necessary services for children and their families recovering from Hurricane Sandy
The contest closes on May 31 and the winner is chosen at random. Good luck!
