Mike Twitter Setlist Poll for Solo Shows

Recommended Posts

Similarly to what he did for the Fort Minor 2015 shows and again with Linkin Park in 2017, Mike has launched a poll on Twitter to add a song to the setlists for his upcoming shows. This is also an idea that he floated in 2010 about what songs Linkin Park should perform on the A Thousand Suns World Tour.

 

In 2015, High Voltage came away victorious after battling Right Now, Red To Black, Second To None, and Step Up. In 2017, both A Place For My Head and From The Inside were on the poll... and LP ended up performing both.

 

The current poll says:

"I'm starting to put together a set for future shows, and there might be a open slot for a song. Which should I add?"

- Petrified

- Roads Untraveled

- In Stereo

- Sorry For Now

 

Petrified and In Stereo have been performed at every Fort Minor show 2005-2006 and 2015. Roads Untraveled was debuted at the Linkin Park Hollywood Bowl show and Sorry For Now has yet to be performed in any form.

 

Right now, both Linkin Park songs are leading the poll significantly with Roads Untraveled taking the lead and Sorry For Now following right behind it. Mike in recent interviews said he would perform limited Linkin Park songs, if any at all, in the live show. If one of these LP songs win, we can at least guarantee one LP song making the cut.

 

Mike's first solo show is approaching rapidly, on May 12th in Los Angeles, so he is inevitably planning the setlist right now and preparing the new live show. So far, seven shows have been announced and Mike said more shows are on the way (including a hopeful date in China).

 

What song did you vote for?

I voted Sorry For Now. I am kind of conflicted because it would be a little weird if he debuted a Linkin Park core album song live in his solo set before LP played it. But hell, we are in uncharted territory here. I hope this means he'd consider playing both Roads Untraveled and Sorry For Now in an LP set in the future, because both are fantastic tracks and Mike can sing those. It's like Burning In The Skies and Iridescent - Mike can perform those in an LP set in the future no problem. That's already 4 tracks if he'd be down for it.

 

Roads Untraveled was a big highlight for me at the Hollywood Bowl and part of that was due to Rob's drumming which stood out to me. I think that song would inevitably be better with a full band behind it. Sorry For Now, while it hasn't been played, has a big ass pop production to it and the drops would be sick with the production he says he wants to do on this Post Traumatic tour. So Sorry For Now gets my pick even though LP hasn't played it yet.

 

I also hope he considers keeping High Voltage's Raid Remix from 2015 because it was only performed a few times and that shit went off. I know the sets will be hard to pick songs for (Cigarettes, Kenji, etc). Looking For An Answer is another one that'd be good to see live.

 

As I type my reply I can see already how many songs LP can perform in their sets when they come back. It's much more than we think, before any new recorded music that they might have.

How is Mike gonna play that Sorry For Now song without Chester? Is he gonna just rap Chester's verse and shit? I guess I'll vote for that one since that's what everyone here seems to want. Anything after MTM I couldn't care less about so I have no issues with Mike playing it.

In the same way like he played Roads Untraveled, also without Chester.

Yeah but Chester didn’t have a whole verse like he did in Sorry For Now. Either way, looks like Roads Untraveled will be the one that he’ll play. Not bad since it was only played once before.

  • ...the third verse of RU is solely Chester
  • claims he doesn't care about anything post-MTM, can still make bold claims about post-MTM songs
  • also hated MTM a month ago
  • calls SFN "that" song

Man, if you want to troll, at least try lol

If RU won, he should alternate SFN with it. It's clear a lot of the hardcore fans want to hear SFN and I think a lot of the reason RU got such a big vote was because it was played at the Hollywood Bowl show. Maybe he will do shortened versions of RU and SFN, cutting out Chester's parts. Maybe it would all fit in one set, actually.
