RogueSoul Posted January 14, 2015 Share Posted January 14, 2015 It's that time again! Linkin Park is officially back on tour after a month long break for the holidays for their second North American run of The Hunting Party Touring Cycle (the first one being the Carnivores Tour with Thirty Seconds To Mars and AFI in Summer 2014). This time, the band will be bringing special guests Rise Against and Of Mice & Men on the road with them for the month-long tour. The 2015 Winter North American Tour will be hitting cities the band hasn't performed at for years (the latest being 2012, the earliest being never!) including Nashville, Ontario, and Manchester. This will be the band's fourth appearance in Orlando, and the first time since July 2003 - it's been an entire decade since they've performed there! The band will take the stage at the Amway Center at this show, a venue new for the band. The first known performance we have of Linkin Park in Orlando dates back to July 2000 at The Sapphire, famous for being the earliest live recording we %5Bcurrently%5D have of the band. You can grab the audio recording from The MP3 Collection thread in our Audio Downloads section! This show take place before the release of Hybrid Theory, but the band still played everyone's favorites including 'A Place For My Head', 'Points Of Authority', and 'One Step Closer'. The band returned to Orlando later that year in November, at Hard Rock Live. We don't have any details regarding that show - if you have any, be sure to tell us anything you remember! We can certainly say the band performed a bunch of songs from the then-newly released Hybrid Theory including 'With You' and 'Runaway'. The band's most recent performance in Orlando was at the Florida Citrus Bowl, in July 2003 on Metallica's 'Summer Sanitarium' Tour. The band performed many Meteora songs in Orlando for the first time, including 'Faint', 'Figure.09', and 'From The Inside'. Hopefully the band can keep up their history of strong shows in Orlando! The question even will be asking as the tour inches closer to beginning - what will the band be playing? New songs from The Hunting Party? The same-old setlist we've seen? New setlists? Well, to be honest, possibly a mix of everything. Mike has hinted that for the upcoming tour, there wouldn't be too many significant changes to the set, possibly rotating some songs around and adding one or two new THP songs into the mix. Recently, in an interview with 102.9 The Buzz's Hayley St. John, he commented on how the "setlist we've been playing really incorporates every era of the band." While we can't argue with that, it seemed like the band would be making minimal changes to the setlist. That is, until the band posted this picture to Instagram, with the caption, "BBB rehearsing a new song." While we can't say 100% for certain what that song will be, with the conclusions drawn by Linkin Park guru Astat, it looks like the band will be adding 'War' into the setlist. As for other changes, we're not too sure. It is known the band has rehearsed through the entirety of both Hybrid Theory and The Hunting Party at some point in this touring cycle's rehearsals, as well as some other heavy hitters like 'No More Sorrow', 'Breaking The Habit', and 'Wretches and Kings'. Will any of those songs have a chance of seeing the limelight again? For a list of songs the band has rehearsed but not played over the years, check out this thread. Another variable to look forward to are new verses rapped over Mike's Solo Medley (so far, he's rapped 'Remember The Name', the 'Skin To Bone' Nick Catchdubs Remix, 'When They Come For Me', 'Hands Held High' (2x), and 'High Voltage' (1x)). According to this poll, other songs the fans want to see include 'In Stereo', 'Dedicated', and 'Step Up'! What verses do YOU want to see over his medley? With the addition of 'War' into the setlist, that will bring the total number of The Hunting Party songs in the setlist to a 6 1/2 (since 'The Summoning' appears in Mashup Intro #2). Check out this video of the live debut of 'Rebellion' back in West Palm Beach, FL on the Carnivores Tour. Will 'War' be a great live song? What other songs from The Hunting Party do you want to see live? The two bands Linkin Park will be touring with this time around definitely fit in with the whole "heavy" aspect of The Hunting Party. Rise Against and Of Mice & Men! Rise Against are known for their powerful shows and songs such as 'Prayer Of The Refugee', 'Give It All' and 'Savior'. Their newest album, The Black Market was released last year. Expect to see a mix of their hits and new songs during their set! Tim McIlrath, the band's lead singer, joined Linkin Park onstage for 'Bleed It Out' on the two holiday shows they performed at in December. Will we see this collaboration happen more often? Tim's voice may be complimentary to 'War'! Of Mice & Men is a name you should all be familiar with - a fantastic novel by John Steinbeck. Also, a heavy rock band hailing from California. They joined the band on their last major tour in Europe back in 2014. Austin Carlile has been constantly coming out to sing with Chester during 'Faint', and Aaron Pauley began to sing during the 'Iridescent' portion of the Ballad Medley, as well. The band just released a live music video for their song 'Identity Disorder', featuring footage from The Hunting Party European Tour, where they began playing the song for the first time. The deluxe version of their new album, Restoring Force is set to be released later this month. A bunch of collaborations are possibilities here - hopefully we'll see them often! The Linkin Park world has been busy outside of this tour as well - last month, the OST for Joe's movie, MALL was released featuring previously unreleased songs including 'It Goes Through' and 'White Noise'. LPLive managed to get a hold of the songs from the mobile app, "Linkin Park Recharged: Wastelands" as well, featuring brand new tracks like 'Dawn' and 'Charge'. Grab them all here! More tour rumors have been popping up everywhere - shows in Asia (China, India), South America (Rock in Rio Brazil), Europe (Rockenheim, Glastonbury) and North America (Mayhem Festival Tour) are all possibilities! Check out all the rumors in this thread. Who's pumped for the new tour?! If you're heading to the show, be sure to post in this thread - LPLive member Papercut will be there! Anyone thinking of a LPLive meetup? We're going to be covering every detail of every show, so be sure to keep a close eye on LPLive! Mark, also known as LPLive Admin Hahninator, will be traveling to the first few shows of the tour and livetweeting the setlists - we'll keep you covered on that, too! After Orlando, the band heads to Nashville, Tennessee for the first time since 2008, then to Indianapolis, Indiana for the first time since 2003.
