The Carnivores Tour is taking it to the land of maple syrup! That's right, Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and AFI are heading to Montreal, Quebec in Canada at the Parc Jean-Drapeau! Linkin Park has played in Montreal a few times before: 2003, 2004, of which a very strong audience recording of which can be found in our Live Audio Downloads & Requests forum, 2008, and 2011. Linkin Park's history here is interesting... In 2003, the band performed at the same venue on the famous Summer Sanitarium Tour. In 2004, Chester brought up long-time Linkin Park fan, friend, and LPLive member Sal (who recently celebrated his 50th show at Holmdel) to sing with him on Faint. In 2008, Chester pulled of the FULL SCREAM during Given Up! Awesome! In 2011, Mike rapped verse 1 of 'A Place For My Head' over the bridge of 'Bleed It Out', as well as having Rob perform a drum solo!

 

Speaking of historical moments, the most recent show in Darien Center has had some mixed reactions. On the bright side of things, the band held the 10th LPU Summit before the show, performing 'Final Masquerade' acoustically as well as holding a Q&A session for LPU members. At the show, Mike rapped the first verse of the Xero song 'Reading My Eyes' over the extended intro of 'Bleed It Out' for the first time on The Hunting Party tour! The last time he rapped a verse of 'Reading My Eyes' was in 2013, at the last show of the Living Things World Tour in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And now, the sad news. An early draft of the setlist was found early in the day, which contained 'A Place For My Head' to close the show after 'Bleed It Out'. Unfortunately, that was scrapped from the final version of the setlist that they used at the show. That would of been the first time 'A Place For My Head' would close a show, and what a closer that would be! Quite carnivorous, if you ask me. According to our 2014 Live Poll, it's the most requested song to be played on the Carnivores Tour! At least we know that the band can play it at any point of the tour when they see fit. Possibly at the next summit in Woodlands, TX? Maybe even at the show in Montreal! Fingers crossed! The band performed Set A yesterday, so Set B is likely to be performed in Montreal. To see a list of songs that Linkin Park has rehearsed but not played subsequently on tour, click here!

 

Check out the acoustic performance of 'Final Masquerade' at the summit in Darien Center! This was the first time the song, and any song from The Hunting Party has been performed acoustically in front of a crowd! Awesome! Watch Chester, Brad, and Mike perform this awesome version of the song!

On the other live side of the Carnivores Tour, both Thirty Seconds To Mars and AFI are still going strongg. AFI played their regular setlist that has hits like 'Miss Murder' and 'I Hope You Suffer', as well as some other deep album cuts like 'Medicate' and '17 Crimes'. Thirty Seconds To Mars played their regular set that opened with the combo of Carl Orff's 'Carmina Burana: O Fortuna' and the lead single from their new album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, 'Up In The Air'. Also in their set are hits like 'Do Or Die' and 'City Of Angels'. Jared's acoustic consisted of the single from This Is War, 'Hurricane', and MARS's most popular song, 'The Kill'. They closed with 'Closer To The Edge' and invited fans from the crowd onstage. Awesome!

 

The LPLive Crew is done manning the Music For Relief booth! Let's take a brief moment to thank them for their and the other MFR Volunteers for helping out on tour, and here's to the next one! The MFR Booth is still a great cause, so be sure to stop by and donate to the cause. Jonas, or AndOne, will still be attending the show and working at the booth in Toronto, so say hi if you see him! We'll update you on the show both here and on our Twitter, so go follow us there!

APFMH would've been awesome, but the position in the set is a bit weird. I would move it a few songs before the last, to open the encore, or after GATS (or somewhere in the main set).

You should add 'and the best poutine!' We can all (hopefully) admit, Montreal has the best poutine.

Ok I got more proof from Nick D...they weren't fucking around with us at all about APFMH. It was on a setlist backstage around noon to close the show. The day sheet (which I have a picture of) says Set A V5 (version 5)...the one played at the show was V4.

 

We will see if it pops up in Montreal or Toronto. Or Woodlands.

Can you post the pic here? And versions of sets? I never noticed a difference.

 

It's awesome how a single song can make a set 100x better lol

I'm also waiting for Carousel and And One.

 

And Pictureboard...

I'd rather have them open the encore with APFMH. It was an awesome show opener during the LT tours, and got the crowd ready for the show. This tour is good with the mashup intro, even though GATS after it isn't very spectacular.

 

Adding APFMH as the encore opener would make the encore much better (then again, throwing an LP playlist on shuffle for 5 songs would make it better as well at this point).

 

As a show closer, I'm hoping it has something new to it to end the nights.

Am I seriously like, the only person who thinks APFMH closing would suck? That song ends way too abruptly to have nothing after it. Second to last song, absolutely. Closing, FUCK no.

 

Dude we are talking about a band that thinks it's fine to open the encore with the BID intro to really get the hard rock crowd jamming. Or a swirl intro into LITE studio version for 41 seconds...I mean what a joke, ha. APFMH I will GLADLY take as a closer just to get rid of BIO closing since the band thinks its some huge epic party anthem (which it was in 2007, but not anymore).

I'm going to the Toronto show but I won't be able to live tweet since I'll have no service there.

I'm slightly confused too, I kept thinking the show was yesterday. So weird to skip a show.

 

Wow, you kept on traveling after Darien? Congrats. I hope the show tonight is great.
