hahninator Posted June 8, 2014 Share Posted June 8, 2014 On the 8th, Linkin Park plays the sixth show of their current European Tour in Nürnberg, Germany at Rock im Park. This festival is held at Volkspark Dutzendteich. This will be the band's fifth show at Rock im Park, but it will be only their fourth different year playing there. The first show at Rock im Park for LP came in June 2001 on their US-to-Europe Tour, a chaotic little tour that took them around the world performing a mix of festivals and headlining shows. Linkin Park played a nice little thirteen song set at Frankenstadion earlier in the day and was later asked to fill in for Slipknot on the side stage (Eishalle) at a 1:00am time slot, because Slipknot had literally disappeared after their show the night before in Bremen. At this show, Linkin Park had a lot of fun and changed the setlist up to open with A Place For My Head and Forgotten for the Slipknot fans. By the end of the show, they had won the crowd over and even Fred from Limp Bizkit had come out at three points during the set. Drunken fun for everyone, we suppose! Since they skipped Rock im Park in 2004 to headline Download, the next Linkin Park show at Rock im Park was not until 2007. That show and their next appearance in 2012 proved to be hits with the German crowds, who were as crazy as ever at both shows. Last night on the 7th, the band played a very memorable show at Rock am Ring, which will be changing venues after this year. Marek Lieberberg (MLK, the famous German promoter) watched the show side stage with his family and was mentioned by Chester on Bleed It Out. All in all, the band performed very well and a rowdy crowd showed up (blowing the 2012 crowd out of the water) for the show. Jonas from LPLive staff got Mike to do a different verse on his solo medley and a verse from Hands Held High made an appearance! There are many highlights of the show, so just check it out for yourself if you haven't seen it yet. Downloads are in the forums in both the media section and the Rock am Ring show thread. Ten years and one day after they played an epic show at Rock am Ring 2004, Linkin Park closed the chapter on the festival at Nürburgring and hopefully will return in a few years to headline it again at its new location! We'd like to thank Thomas from BlackChester.de for including LPLive on the show flag for Rock am Ring that was displayed on Mike's keyboard! That's two Rock am Ring's in a row (2012 and 2014) that have featured LPLive on a flag on stage, both by Thomas! At Rock im Park, we expect the same setlist of course (only changing for Download), but we are interested to see if Mike changes the verse in his medley once again! After this show, Italy gets its first Linkin Park show since 2011 when the band plays Milano (last played in 2001!) on the 10th. Greenfield in Switzerland and Download in England follow to close out the tour. The full 2014 tour schedule can be found here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
