2015.06.30 - Milwaukee, WI - Summerfest

Recommended Posts

On June 30th, Linkin Park ends their run of nine North American summer shows in two months by headlining Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It will be the band's first show ever in the city of Milwaukee (eleventh in Wisconsin) and joining them will be A Day To Remember and the recently-added PPL MVR.

Linkin Park has played ten shows in Wisconsin before this show, but the latest came in 2008. An interesting fact about Wisconsin is that a review from 2002 states that there was likely a Hybrid Theory (the band) club show in Madison, WI. If this is true, then there were definitely more Hybrid Theory (band) shows that we don't know about...meaning they might have done a U.S. tour at some point. Unfortunately, we probably will never know if that was true or not.

Previous LP shows in Wisconsin include Cross Plains 2000, Cross Plains 2000 again, East Troy 2001, Somerset 2001, Madison 2002, Madison 2004, a rare two shows on Projekt Revolution 2004 in East Troy and Somerset, and East Troy 2008.

 

As it is often the case that summer amphitheatres are located a good distance away from the bigger cities, East Troy is about 40 miles away from Milwaukee, similar to Mansfield, MA's distance from Boston. Some amphitheatres are very close to cities like Chula Vista, CA's amphitheatre in relation to San Diego. Anyway, 40 miles is a bit too far for us to say that LP has ever played in Milwaukee before, so this will be their first show there.

 

 

Since Linkin Park hasn't played in Wisconsin in seven years, here are some interesting facts about the previous Linkin Park shows there! A crazy fact is that the ONLY known time they ever have opened with Points Of Authority was at the East Troy 2001 show on Ozzfest, when they were experimenting with different openers (With You, A Place For My Head, etc). Madison 2002 was the second-to-last time that And One was ever performed live, as it was dropped two shows later for It's Goin' Down (which the band had been rehearsing before the first six shows of the tour).

 

Somerset in 2004 is one of only two full, good recordings we have from Projekt Revolution 2004; don't miss that download if you've never heard it as it's a great show.

 

At East Troy 2008, Mike and Chester came out on Bleed It Out with wigs on, imitating their Ozzfest 2001 dressup day they had. It appears that they mixed the shows up, though, as the wigs in 2001 were in Noblesville, IN from what we can tell instead of East Troy. Both cities were coincidentally played in both 2001 and 2008 too. Anyway, Sweet Child O' Mine was played in the middle of Bleed It Out and it was a good time for all.

 

 

At the Milwaukee show, Linkin Park will either perform the U.S. Festival set, or the U.S. Festival (Full) set. The only differences you need to know are that the U.S. Festival set has Rebellion in it with no encore, and the U.S. Festival (Full) set has Points Of Authority, Final Masquerade, and Crawling in it with no encore and no Rebellion. LP has a full set time in Milwaukee, so they should be able to play the FULL setlist, but we never know what they'll do.

 

UNFORTUNATELY the moment we've been waiting for since this show with ADTR was announced will not be happening! Jeremy McKinnon from A Day To Remember will not be able to come out for A Place For My Head at this show as he did at Vans Warped Tour 2014 show because A Place For My Head hasn't been seen since January....

 

 

After Milwaukee, Linkin Park has just two and a half weeks off before they begin their first-ever tour of China, in July. Five shows are on the Chinese Tour - Nanjing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Chongqing, and Beijing. This will be the only shows in Asia for the album's touring cycle. And five weeks after that, the last tour for The Hunting Party will be in Europe for ten shows. Find all of the tour dates here. There's still time for an LPU Summit to be announced for this year, but it's getting close...do you think we'll see one?

God damn, Jeremy on APFMH is epic. Wish they would play it at this show if only for that to happen again.

 

EDIT: Fucking hell, Dylan. I get ninja'd, like, once a week. :P

So pumped to be at this show!

 

I've always thought the Wisconsin shows have been really random. The Annex is tiny (Actually go there every week for trivia) and Kitt's Korner was on the outskirts of Cross Plains, a town that at the time had a single intersection with a traffic light. (Which is actually about 5-10 minutes away from Mazomaine where Holly Brook is from). I would give anything to see them live back then.

MY DREAM SHOW!!!!!!!!!! I WISH I COULD GO! UGH! I had it planned out and everything.... then my car broke down and took all my money. :(

 

APFMH is my favorite song by my favorite band. ADTR is my close second. The fact that he even came out on a song with LP and it was THAT SONG is crazy!

 

I want them to tour soooooooooo bad!

Good crowd, even during the slow songs. They didn't seem to know Rebellion or A Line In The Sand.

 

Brad messed up the start of the first verse to One Step Closer.

Cold night. Only 55° during the start of LP.

 

Chester mentioned that the crowd was very loud. Since then, they stayed loud. Ballad Medley even had a good participation.

Crowd started slow (Chester asked to get the pit going and nobody moved an inch), but then got amped up by the third song. Fort Minor got a lot of love in the crowd. Mike said they'd love to be back soon, that got huge applause too.
