2019.03.08 - Hamburg, Germany


Recommended Posts

Mike sure loves Germany it seems. Show #5 of the Post Traumatic European Tour just so happens to also be show #5 in Germany of the Post Traumatic European Tour. Hamburg, you're up!


The tour has been pretty wild so far. The last show in Oberhausen had one of the strongest starts we've seen yet with a run of 'Welcome''In Stereo''Hold It Together' (with its new extended outro), and 'When They Come For Me'. The fun didn't stop there as Mike rapped the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage' over the bridge of 'Sorry For Now' and we saw FOUR tour debuts: the piano version of 'Numb', the fantastic duo of 'Robot Boy' and 'World's On Fire', and the ever elusive 'High Road' which was the second time that song had been performed in 35 shows. Don Broco also joined Mike to close out the show with 'A Place For My Head'.


Mike is no stranger to Hamburg, and it hasn't been too long since he's been there. The promo tour for One More Light took him and Chester there for two of the stripped down performances where the two of them would play piano versions of new songs like 'Heavy' and 'Battle Symphony' alongside classics like 'Crawling'. Prior to that, Linkin Park had played in Hamburg in 2014, twice during the A Thousands Suns tour (the latter of which was the site of the 4th LPU summit where the iconic cover of Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep' made its debut), 20072003, and 3(!) times in 2001 (the first of which was also the band's first show in Germany). Mike also took the Fort Minor tour to the city in 2005.


We still have yet to really nail down what Mike is gonna play on any given night, but what we do know is that he's gonna be joined by Yvonne Catterfield tonight for a song. Don Broco is also opening for Mike again, so we could see another performance of 'A Place For My Head'. On top of that, there's a few songs Mike's already played that we haven't seen on this tour yet, namely Post Traumatic tracks 'Place To Start''Lift Off', and 'Watching As I Fall'. The latter was soundchecked a few shows ago, so we may see that one sooner rather than later. There's also the rarer songs from the US tour like 'Kenji' and 'Cigarettes' in his arsenal. Anything is possible at this point.


Who's going to the show? After this, Mike finally visits the rest of Europe with shows in ParisLondon, and Budapest
