2014.08.21 - Darien Center, NY (10th LPU Summit)

Recommended Posts

The Carnivores Tour is back in New York, heading upstate to Darien Center. Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and AFI will take the stage at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center on August 21. A very exciting event is occurring at this show as well: the 10th LPU Summit! We'll get to that in a bit. First, a little bit of history. Fun! Though the band is no stranger to the location, this will be the first time they've set foot there since 2007! They band performed there twice before, in 2004 and 2007. Though the band's history here is brief, it's definitely strong. In 2004, Bert McCracken from The Used came out to perform 'Faint' with the band! In 2007, Mike rapped a verse of the Fort Minor song, 'Petrified' over the extended intro of 'Points Of Authority'!

 

The 10th LPU Summit is taking place before the show. Ever since 2010, the band has been hosting summits at various locations throughout the world exclusively for LPU Members. At the summits, LPU Members can participate in events such as cleaning up the local parks, planting trees, and playing rock-paper-scissors for money, as well as getting an exclusive Q&A with the band, and access to hearing either a soundcheck or a short acoustic set by the band. Previously, the summit has been held in London, Homebush, Chicago, Hamburg, Chiba, Camden, Cape Town, Auckland, and Chep Lap Kok. At past summits, the band has performed 'The Messenger', 'Leave Out All The Rest', 'The Little Things Give You Away', 'Rolling In The Deep' by Adele, and 'In My Remains' acoustically, as well as soundchecking songs like 'Blackout', 'Burning In The Skies', 'Castle Of Glass', 'The Catalyst', and 'Victimized (w/ QWERTY)'. What do you think the band will do at this summit? 'Final Masquerade' would sound nice acoustically! At the most recent summits, the band has toyed around with the idea of streaming the events that occur at the summit via uStream. Check out some videos from the last summit in Chep Lak Kok here, including the band's soundcheck! Another LPU Summit is scheduled for Woodlands, TX and there is likely to be another one on the band's European excursion, rumored for either Paris or Amsterdam. Curious about some other rumors about the band's touring schedule? Check out this thread!

 

Check out this acoustic performance of 'In My Remains' at the LPU Summit in Camden in 2012! Hopefully, we'll get another acoustic performance, since those don't come around too often. What songs would you like to hear acoustic?

 

The other bands on the Carnivores Tour are still going strong! In Wantagh, AFI performed their regular setlist, featuring singles like 'I Hope You Suffer' and 'Miss Murder', as well as some deeper album cuts like 'Medicate' and 'Silver and Cold'. Earlier on the tour, the band performed two songs that they dropped from future setlists: 'A Single Second' and 'Beautiful Thieves'. Maybe they'll bring them back soon! This will be AFI's third performance at the venue, the most recent being in 2010. Thirty Seconds To Mars will be performing at the venue for the first time since 2002, when they opened for Incubus! The band opened their setlist with Carl Orff's 'Carmina Burana: O Fortuna' and their new hit, 'Up In The Air'. The band performed singles like 'This Is War' and 'Kings and Queens' as well as some non-singles like 'Search and Destroy' and 'Conquistador'. The band changed up the setlist by rotating 'Night Of The Hunter' and 'Search and Destroy', as well as Tomo and Shannon playing some instrumental covers: 'Cowboys From Hell' by Pantera and 'Whole Lotta Love' by Led Zeppelin. Jared Leto also appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on August 20, as well as bringing the band to perform 'End Of All Days', which will likely be the band's next single.

 

Linkin Park's set in Wantagh saw them going through Set B, which features 'Somewhere I Belong' and a new version of 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You'. Notable events at the show include Chester doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, as challenged by Mike at the previous show in Holmdel, which he challenged Jared Leto, the rest of Thirty Seconds To Mars, and AFI, Mike performing a 'hybrid' verse of 'Remember The Name' over his solo medley, Mike bringing back to Sing-a-long Outro to 'What I've Done', Mike having an awesome speech over the bridge of 'Bleed It Out', and Rob performing a new drum solo over the bridge! If the pattern continues, the band will perform Set A again tonight. There's always that small chance the band performs a random Set C. According to our new 2014 live poll, the fans want to see 'A Place For My Head', 'No More Sorrow', 'By Myself', and 'When They Come For Me' among others to be played on the Carnivores Tour! Maybe the band will see our poll and add a few songs to the setlist. It wouldn't be the first time the band responded to our posts here on LPLive!

 

In other recent news, check out all the backstage work at the first night of the Carnivores Tour, via LiveNation! Also, we're getting another proshot of the band on the Carnivores Tour, as the band's performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on September 15 will be livestreamed via VyRT, Jared Leto's online ticketing service. We'll have you all covered on everything in the world of Linkin Park!

 

Who's heading to the show or summit? We'll cover all the information here on LPLive and on our Twitter, so go follow us there! The LPLive Crew (minus Hahninator, who's headed home now) will be at the show and the summit, as well as manning the Music For Relief booth. After this show, the band heads off to Canada to play two shows in Montreal and Toronto. On the 24th, the MTV Video Music Awards will be held, and Linkin Park is nominated for Best Rock Video, among other nominations including Lorde's 'Royals' and Imagine Dragons' 'Demons'. Thirty Seconds To Mars' 'City Of Angels' is nominated for Best Cinematography too, here's to hoping the bands win their awards!

I bet they do acoustic today instead of a soundcheck. I think it'll be Final Masquerade and The Messenger (just guessing).

 

Sucks I couldn't make this show and Summit!

So does anyone know what Mike said in his awesome speech during Bleed it out?

 

Where? Wantagh? Wantagh he just told the crowd to get up and be extra loud, etc. It was like a 30 second or more ext. intro...need a video to remember exactly what he said.

Wow, I'm sitting in the parking lot at Darien Lake right now. I did the Summit and show today/tonight. Was pretty damn epic. The Summit was cool, but it was kind of rushed and out of order and stuff and the Meet & Greet seemed like it went by faster than previous ones I have been to at this tour. Final Masquerade acoustic was just plain awesome, it sounded good. I'm glad they played that instead of The Messenger. Overall I would say Camden 2012 was a better Summit. It just ain't the same without Adam, either.

 

As far as the show goes, it was very good. I didn't get to see AFI's set at this show because of the Meet & Greet, but I did get to catch Thirty Seconds To Mars. I originally had lawn tickets but I was upgraded to pretty good seats. Thirty Seconds To Mars played really well, IMO, maybe better than in Holmdel and Wantagh. Jared climes this huge tower in the middle of the seating that was holding up the tent and the guards freaked out. He also did what he has been doing by bringing up fans on stage at the end as well as singing with them and stuff during his acoustic performance.

 

LP played very good, they sounded solid. I was hoping for something special tonight or maybe the debut of another song from THP, but I suppose I should stop wishing by now. Mike did rap RME over BIO, dedicated to the LPU, and just like at SSMF last year, I was the only one around me rapping it. Lol. Mike and Chester went into the crowd quite a lot and they looked like they were having a blast.

 

Overall, good day and night, now anxiously waiting for the pics to be posted on LPU.

Final Masquerade acoustic awesome. Nice to see that they did something special for the LPU at the end of the show, even if it's just RME over BIO.

Anybody know what happened at the M&G that caused Chester to flip out on that lady? She must of said something really rude because he was saying things like "You're the most irresponsible parent," and "Do you understand me? No you don't because there's something wrong with you."

I never heard or saw him say any of this. I wonder who it was and what happened.
