Wilderness Posted August 25, 2015 Share Posted August 25, 2015 F0rt M!n0r /roboticwomanvoiceWelcome everyone, recognise me? No?! No-one asking me "Where'd You Go?" - Well, I guess I didn't give you 100% reason to Remember The Name when I took the High Road... Anyway, Right Now, I'm about to give you a preshow post for the first of four Fort Minor shows in Europe this tour: Copenhagen, Denmark. So it's time to kick off the 3-date Fort Minor side-tour, featuring the humble Mike Shinoda to promote his new single Welcome, and to give something back to the fans. The first show is on the 26th in Copenhagen, Denmark. The other three shows are both in Germany: Berlin on 2nd September, Dusseldorf on 5th September for Rock Im Sektor, of which Linkin Park are also playing that day too. What's interesting about this is that when FM played at Summer Sonic 2006, Mike swore he would never do a Fort Minor show and a Linkin Park show on the same day again. I guess he evolved, like Charmander. The final show is the newly added London date, which I didn't think would happen, which prompted me to book flights and a hotel to another country...So, what are people's expectations of the set? Will we see the same set as LA, or will Mike throw in some surprises? New FM songs? Any live debuts tonight? Will Mike rap any verses over other tracks, like he once did over 75 Bars by The Roots, with a verse from I Have Not Begun? Or maybe rap a verse of Ryu or Tak like in Believe Me in LA? Any oldies, like Red To Black? It's no doubt that in 10 years Shinoda's singing voice has become stronger and sweeter, and to hear him singing on something like Red To Black is something I'd personally be very interested to hear. Mike has included a number of Linkin Park songs or verse in the set, including Waiting For The End, Hands Held High, Castle of Glass, Until It Breaks, and When They Come For Me? Can we expect more of this? Or can we expect it vice versa, maybe scrapping Castle of Glass Experience Version for Castle of Glass/Kenji mashup. I prefer to label it Castle of Kenji... Let's talk about the venue! It has a floor, and a stage. So what, big whoop, wanna fight about it? I've personally attended this venue whilst working for Julien-K at [this show] - it's quite a nicely sized venue but with a hella-tiny stage. I have actually seen very little interaction as to who is attending the show, so I'm very curious to see how packed out the venue is. This could be really intimate!This will be my first time seeing Fort Minor in nearly 10 years! I caught them in November 2005 in London, Mean Fiddler which has sadly been closed and demolished, where many songs got their debut. Maybe I can bring some of the same luck to Denmark, huh guys?I do intend to let everyone know the set after the show, but I unfortunately would rather be front row dripping with sweat than stuck on Twitter I'm afraid! Don't forget to sign our DSP petition, where we are currently trying to get Linkin Park to release older shows. The band has a lot of recorded shows from 2001-2006 as well as 2013-2015...they still record every show they play, and we want them to know fans are requesting them. Being able to relive your concert over-and-over again is priceless...if you agree, sign the campaign here and spread the word!For the 2015 Linkin Park tour schedule and setlists, click here.

Spare a Dolla and grab a beer with me, just keep in mind I do not smoke Cigarettes (I'm asthmatic). Everyone else, Cover and Duck, 'cause we about to erupt!And I apologise, I know these puns are just terrible, Believe Me. Much love.-Wilderness Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
