Carson, CA 2012: Four Songs Released Digitally


Recommended Posts

Linkin Park announced on June 21st that they had released an exclusive version of The Hunting Party to Xbox Music with four live bonus tracks. These tracks are taken from the Carson, CA show on September 8th, 2012. This show at the Home Depot Center on the Honda Civic Tour was the highest grossing show in the band's history and is a fitting release.


The Hunting Party (Xbox Deluxe Edition) (Live Bonus Tracks):

13 With You (Live in LA 9.8.12) [Exclusively on Xbox Music] 3:42
14 Lost in the Echo (Live in LA 9.8.12) [Exclusively on Xbox Music] 3:57
15 Numb (Live in LA 9.8.12) [Exclusively on Xbox Music] 3:17
16 Burn It Down (Live in LA 9.8.12) [Exclusively on Xbox Music] 3:57


This makes it the fourth show in 2012 to see an official release. The others are:

2012.06.03 Nürnberg (2 digital songs)

2012.06.05 Berlin (LT+ DVD; 4 songs cut)

2012.09.12 Monterrey (THP Bonus DVD; 11 songs only)



You're already likely familiar with the show due to it being broadcasted in full in 2012. In case you missed it, we've linked up the YouTube video for you, and you can grab the DVD of it on lp-bits.org or in our download section of the forums. The four audio tracks are professionally mixed, of course. Ethan Mates is the man behind the mix for these, you're familiar with his extensive catalogue of mixing songs for the band too since LP almost always heads to Ethan or Pooch to mix live releases.


Our overall thoughts... After Carson was rumored to be a bonus DVD with The Hunting Party (it ended up just being the Monterrey 2012 show), this is a good release for a few bonus tracks as Carson is one of just a few shows on the Honda Civic Tour without a DSP released for the show. While it would have been nice to have some new songs from the European Tour, there is no way that those could have been mixed in time because of the band's hectic traveling/touring schedule. Including With You is a sure-hit with hardcore fans (instead of releasing just four singles or four Living Things songs) and the other three songs are solid performances! While it would have been nice to have some songs from a 2013 show (maybe Sunset Strip Music Festival), it's not of the band's nature in present-day to release songs like that, so this is a solid 2012 show to release songs from!
