04.11.2010 - Manchester, England


Recommended Posts

Linkin Park begins their UK leg of the European Tour tonight in Manchester, England at the MEN Arena. This will be the 11th show of the European leg for the band. LP is no stranger to Manchester, having played there as recently as January 2008 (show page here), which really just seems like yesterday. That was the show where Mike fucked up the 'It's Goin' Down' rap intro to 'Points Of Authority' because some fans in the front row started rapping 'Petrified' instead. It was also where part of the 'Given Up' music video was filmed! They played the exact same arena in 2003 (show page here) on their November UK tour, where they opened with 'Papercut' and where Mike rapped a verse of 'Standing In The Middle' over 'Nobody's Listening'. That was the first tour that 'Breaking The Habit' was ever played on!


They played Manchester's Apollo twice in early 2001 opening for the Deftones (show pages here and here). Nothing really remarkable happened at those shows...but LP changed the setlist up entirely for the second show, so this could possibly be the first time they ever played the same venue twice on one tour. The band returned later that year only a few days after Sept. 11 to headline the Apollo (show page here), and that show was the first time 'My December' was added to their touring setlist. I believe that was the second time it was ever played (the KROQ 2000 show was the first)! They also played at the Apollo on the LPU 2003 tour (show page here). Common recordings exist of ALL of these shows.


So this should make this their sixth appearance in Manchester!


Here's our latest tour jam....this is 'Bleed It Out' with 'Reading My Eyes' and 'Burning In The Skies' over it in Frankfurt.


What's in store for the UK leg of the tour? Who from LPLive is going to Manchester? Anyone have a M&G? Do you guys think the band will continue to experiment with 'Bleed It Out'? What else would you like to see Mike rap over it?


Tomorrow the band plays in Newcastle, UK (ironically, Newcastle in Australia was just added to their tour dates down under) before taking a day off and heading to the MTV EMA's in Madrid. The rest of the 2010 tour dates can be found here.


Also if you didn't catch it, Mike posted about our website on his blog HERE.

I'm going to the meet and greet tonight :D! I might ask if they'll do some Xero stuff; I doubt they will, but it's worth a shot.

If you ask for xero we'll reading my eyes which isn't a bad thing but I think we should try and get mike to change it again to step up - would be sick :)

If you want to make a super mashup of bleed it out, this is what I want:


extended intro w/ reading my eyes verse 1 (I'd like to hear verse 2 but probably will never done it)

extended bridge w/ a place for my head verse 1 or 2 and bridge

extended outro in similar manner to point of authority w/ There They Go or another verse

or maybe switch out RME in the outro and another verse in the intro;


I'm probably dreaming but if they could do something similar would be awesome!!!

Im attending the Birmingham gig next tuesday but aint got a meet and greet because had to cut my spending down due to the fact we have a baby coming. I tell u something it wud be good if chester would do Wish or Sweet Child Of Mine like in past shows that would be sweat. I think the UK shows and Australian shows could see diff setlists, i dont know y but i have a gut feeling that from there past 10 shows the setlist wont be the same, either they'll mix the songs around or add a couple others, common guys it LP they always got stuff up there sleaves to keep the fans happy.

I listen to a bad quality YouTube video of Mike fucking up the intro, I didn't actually notice anything...

What does he actually mess up? Does he loose track, or does he say the wrong lyrics or what?

he messed up lyrics. he laughed and said "hell you guys fucked me up right here. that shit doeasnt usually happen" :D

how do we know mike isnt registered to the site cause know1 will know his I.P address anyways, and he could easily set up an email address, how do we know he doesnt comment on the forums? and puts something on the wall that think could happen then does happen at one of the shows.
