Below, we have compiled a few statistics for Linkin Park's touring and live performances over the years as well as the LPLive site database. Note that you can't take all statistics at face value, for example it appears that there are more shows in London than Hollywood. Linkin Park has obviously played many more shows across the LA area (West Hollywood, North Hollywood, etc) than they have in London by at least more than double.

Last Updated: December 2017
*Note: LPLive has setlists for every Linkin Park show from 2005 to present day, meaning all songs written from the Minutes To Midnight era to now are 100% accurate. For the Meteora touring cycle, there is about a +/- 3 on those counts maximum, due to us missing some setlists in 2003 and 2004. It is most likely accurate, but the band did drop a song here or there sometimes (example: Long Beach 2004, Nashville 2004), so there is a slight disclaimer with Meteora.

For the Hybrid Theory touring cycle, there is a +/- of at least 5 to 8 due to a lot of setlists missing from 2000, 2001, and 2002. There is no way to ever accurately get the EXACT number of times the Hybrid Theory songs were performed live. To calculate these numbers, we took the number of confirmed times a song was played live and added it to the estimated times a song was played live.

The estimates come from us assuming tour setlists stayed the same, which they did for the most part. The biggest +/- margins for Hybrid Theory will come with By Myself, Forgotten, and Pushing Me Away (also And One from the Hybrid Theory EP) due to the 2000 setlists changing sometimes mid-tour and the band changing the setlists a good bit in 2001, most notable on Ozzfest's off days at OFFEST events. Our guesses were most certainly educated guesses, not blind stabs at show setlists. However, the 5 singles atop the list are most likely quite accurate since they were played at almost every Hybrid Theory and Meteora touring cycle show (Crawling starting in 2001, the others before the name change from the band Hybrid Theory to Linkin Park even happened). As mentioned above, counts starting in 2005 and continuing to present day are 100% accurate.

This list was composed due to incorrectly showing the number of times a song was performed live. Our count is much more precise and with a much smaller margin of error for songs in the top 25 list.

During the battle, he rapped both verses from "Dedicated," the first time that song had been unveiled in any form, as well as another verse that he had written years beforehand, which was never used in a song.
