2014.08.27 - Winnipeg, MB, MTS Centre


Recommended Posts

We're at the halfway point of the Carnivores Tour! The 13th stop on the tour will take Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and AFI back for one last show in Canada (or, as I've affectionately referred to it as, the land of maple syrup) at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This will be Linkin Park's first time playing in Winnipeg, therefore there's no history lesson to give today! You can put your pens and pencils down for today :P


On the 26th, Linkin Park performed a regular run through of Set B in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, with a few interesting notes. As far as the performance went, everything was as it usually was, though Mike's Solo Medley had a false start. Another awesome piece of information is that when 'Remember The Name' kicked in, Mike shouted out our Linkin Park Guru, Astat, who was wearing his Fort Minor shirt at the show! Congrats Astat! Joe's and Rob's "cages" that would move up and down during their respective solos were not used at the show, due to the production of the show being scaled down to fit with the standards of the event. To wrap it all up, a fireworks display occurred after Linkin Park's set. This is the first time pyro has been used at the Linkin Park event since 2012, in Johannesburg. The last time fireworks were used at a Linkin Park show was in Moscow in 2012. Other cool facts about the show include Mike rapping a 'hybrid' verse of 'Remember The Name' over his medley, Mike rapping 'Points Of Authority' over the intro of 'Until It's Gone', and the band performed the new 2014 Version of 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You'. Check out more information from the show in Falcon Heights at it's show page!


Check out this performance of 'Somewhere I Belong' a few days ago at the Carnivores Tour stop at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts! We're glad it's back in the setlists, but coincidentally was the least voted for song in our 2014 Live Poll. The most voted for songs were 'A Place For My Head', 'By Myself', 'No More Sorrow', and 'When They Come For Me', all of which have been rehearsed for the Carnivores Tour, but didn't make the cut for the final setlists. 'A Place For My Head' appeared in a version of Set A early in the day at Darien Center, but was dropped before the show. What songs would you like to see on the Carnivores Tour?



You may be wondering how Thirty Seconds To Mars and AFI are doing on the tour. Well, they're doing amazing! AFI's set consisted of their singles like 'I Hope You Suffer', 'The Leaving Song Pt. II', and 'Miss Murder', as well as some deeper album cuts like 'Medicate' and 'Silver and Cold'. AFI has been playing the same setlist for awhile now, but at the beginning of the tour, there were some changes. At the two Florida shows, the band performed 'A Single Second' and 'Beautiful Thieves', which they have been reluctant to play for the rest of the tour. Maybe they'll bring back those songs, or quite possibly some others on the tour! Thirty Seconds To Mars played a very energetic set, opening up with an old-school throwback: Carl Orff's 'Carmina Burana: O Fortuna' and their new hit single, 'Up In The Air'. They performed their other big singles such as 'Do Or Die' and 'This Is War', as well as some other songs like 'End Of All Days' and 'Conquistador' from their latest album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams. During the acoustic set Jared Leto went out into the crowd to perform some songs by request, including the band's biggest hit, 'The Kill'. Lastly, during their encore song, 'Closer To The Edge', Jared brought up fans from the crowd, including LPLive Member, BIBBLE! Congrats, sir! Who's excited to see AFI and MARS on the Carnivores Tour?


Speaking of seeing the Carnivores Tour, if you've been unable to see any performance on the tour but really want to, you're in luck! Thirty Seconds To Mars' and Linkin Park's sets from the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on September 15, 2014 will be streamed via Jared Leto's online ticketing company, VyRT. You can purchase a ticket here for as low as $15! If you're interested in just listening to a few recordings of Linkin Park, you're in luck, as audience recordings from various shows have started popping up! You can download a FLAC recording of the band's set in Darien Center, or a MP3 recording of their set in Bristow, recorded by LPLive member abrandnewname! Lots of awesome things going on this week for LPLive members, that's three in one thread! Maybe YOU'LL be next!


Who's heading to the show? Be sure to stop by the Music For Relief booth to donate to help the efforts going forward to defeat the ebola epidemic currently occurring in Africa. A very noble cause. After this show, the band has a one day break before heading to Tinley Park, Illinois and Clarkston, Michigan before a week long break. A very well deserved break, if you ask me!

Thanks Soul you great guy.


SIB doesn't sound bad...

I always watch Somewhere I belong on youtube and think Chester doesn't sing it raspy enough but last night when they played it thought it sounded amazing.
