RogueSoul Posted September 6, 2014 Share Posted September 6, 2014 The Carnivores Tour wraps up its short Texan excursion in Dallas! Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and AFI are headed to the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, Texas. Linkin Park is no stranger to Dallas, as they've performed there plenty of times in the past: THREE times in 2000 (1, 2, 3), twice in 2001 (1, 2), 2003, twice in 2004 (1, 2), 2007, 2008, 2011, and 2012 - a HUGE TWELVE times! Who's ready for a history lesson?! We have a lot to cover today, get ready! At the first show in 2000, which is the earliest time the band has returned to a city on this tour, the band performed as a part of Union Underground's 'An Education In Rebellion' Tour, all the way back that August. At the second show of that year in Dallas, the band was performing on Kottonmouth Kings' 'Riding High' Tour, one of Linkin Park's longest tours (33 shows!). The last show in 2000 was part of P.O.D.'s 'King Of The Game' Tour, where they performed with the likes of P.O.D., (hed)p.e, and Project 86. The first show in 2001 saw them performed on the Ozzfest, a very famous time in the band's early history. They performed alongside Papa Roach, Marilyn Manson, and Slipknot - a heaven for nu-metal fans! The second show in 2001 had them performing on the Family Values Tour, where they played with Staind, Static-X, and Stone Temple Pilots, which recently took in Chester as their lead singer! During STP's set, Chester came out onstage to sing 'Dead & Bloated' with them. STP were always one of Chester's favorite bands. He went from being a guest during their set to being their lead singer in 2013! Anyway, when the band returned in 2003, the band performed new Meteora songs like 'Session', 'From The Inside', 'Hit The Floor', and 'Easier To Run'. During 'One Step Closer', Christian Lindskog from the band Blindside came out to perform with the band! The first show in 2004 featured one of Linkin Park's best sets: opening with 'With You', now-rarer songs like 'Nobody's Listening', 'It's Goin' Down', and 'From The Inside', as well as a GREAT encore consisting of 'My December', 'P5hng Me A*wy' from Reanimation, 'A Place For My Head', and 'One Step Closer'. Wow! The second show was part of the famous 2004 Projekt Revolution, where they performed with Korn, Snoop Dogg, The Used, and Less Than Jake. They band performed a cover of Nine Inch Nails' 'Wish', as well as bringing out a few guests on the tour; Ivan the Urban Action Figure during the 'It's Goin' Down' portion of the Hip-Hop Medley and Jonathan Davis during the Reanimated Bridge of 'One Step Closer'. Projekt Revolution 2007 was the band's next performance there, alongside My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, HIM, Placebo, and Julien-K. Notable occurrences at the show include Mike rapping his verse from 'Respect 4 Grandma' during the extended intro of 'Points Of Authority', and an awesome encore of 'Cure For The Itch' (MTM Version), 'QWERTY', 'Bleed It Out', and 'Faint'. Dallas has had some great endings of the show! Will the trend continue tonight? 2008, the second to last show of the 2008 Touring Cycle, had some cool things happen: Mike rapping 'In Stereo' and 'There They Go' over the extensions of 'Points Of Authority', Chris Cornell coming out to sing during 'Crawling', and the band playing a double-encore set! The band performed a rescheduled show in Dallas in 2011, after having to cancel a performance there a few weeks prior do to Chester becoming ill. Mike performed an keyboard transition from 'What I've Done' into 'No More Sorrow', and the band performed 'A Place For My Head' over the extended bridge of 'Bleed It Out', as well as Rob performing a drum solo. Finally, at the most recent performance there in 2012, where Chester's mohawk returned! The band incorporated the new Living Things song, 'In My Remains' into the set as well as changing up the order to the set yet again. That was most likely the longest history lesson yet. Just wait until California... Yesterday, the band performed at Woodlands, TX for the first show since the break. The 11th LPU Summit was held there, and the band performed 'Final Masquerade' acoustic again, as well as broadcasting their Q&A via VyRT. They performed Set B, which contains 'With You', 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You', and 'Somewhere I Belong'. Mike rapped a verse from 'When They Come For Me' over his medley. The band has plenty of songs they can randomly perform on the tour - including 'A Place For My Head', 'By Myself' and 'No More Sorrow', the leaders on our 2014 Live Poll. Other songs the band rehearsed but didn't play on the tour include 'A Light That Never Comes' (the full version), 'Breaking The Habit', 'When They Come For Me', and the other rare Hybrid Theory songs. Watch Chester and Brad perform 'Final Masquerade' acoustic at yesterday's summit in Dallas! This differs from the last performance of it, because Mike randomly disappeared and it lacks the bridge where Brad would play the chords instead of his solo. The next summit has been announced to be in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on November 7, 2014. Will the band perform an acoustic song there, or do a rehearsal? What do you think? The other bands on the Carnivores Tour are still jamming! AFI performed their regular setlist consisting of hits like 'I Hope You Suffer', 'The Leaving Song, Pt. II', and 'Miss Murder', as well as some older tracks like 'Medicate' and 'The Days Of The Phoenix'. AFI hasn't changed their setlist since the two Florida shows at the beginning of the tour, where they played 'A Single Second' and 'Beautiful Thieves' for the only times on the Carnivores Tour. Do you think they'll be back in the set before the tour wraps up? Thirty Seconds To Mars also performed the same structured set that they've been playing, which includes an old-school opened of Carl Orff's 'Carmina Burana: O Fortuna' and their new song, 'Up In The Air'. The band performed their hits like 'Do Or Die' and 'This Is War', as well as some other new songs like 'Conquistador' and 'End Of All Days'. Jared performed his acoustic set from the middle of the crowd, taking requests and performing MARS's biggest song, 'The Kill (Bury Me)'. Before the acoustic set, Jared did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, challenging the entire audience to do it! The band concluded the show with an instrumental jam of Pantera's 'Cowboys From Hell' and Jared inviting fans from the crowd up on stage for 'Closer To The Edge'. During 'Kings and Queens', Jared went way back into the crowd to say hello to those who aren't all the way up in front! If you live in a location that isn't being visited by the Carnivores Tour, don't fret! Jared Leto's social ticketing company, VyRT, will be broadcasting Linkin Park's and Thirty Seconds To Mars' sets from the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on September 15! You can purchase a ticket for both sets for as low as $15, as well as buying a variety of packages for exclusive Thirty Seconds To Mars-related events, including a backstage tour, a post-show chat, and even an acoustic set! Jared has frequently been appearing on VyRT for a lo-fi webcast they call VyRT Violet and playing short acoustic sets. At the show in Tinley Park, IL, they attempted to VyRT them heading onstage to play their show, but the Internet did not cooperate. Recently, on the 4th, Jared performed a special acoustic set just for those who have purchased a ticket already, which included a few acoustic songs and a sneak-peek of their upcoming live film, "Into The Wild". Will you join us on the 15th to experience the show through VyRT? Who's heading to the show? The band will likely perform Set A, since they performed Set B yesterday in Woodlands.
