28.06.2011 - Ardenal, Norway - Hove Festival

Recommended Posts

Linkin Park continues their summer European Tour in Ardenal, Norway at Tromøya, an island outside of the city, for the Hove Festival on the 28th. This is LP's first ever appearance in Norway. In June 2003, they were on the bill for the Norwegian Wood Festival in Oslo, Norway but the band was forced to cancel that entire tour due to Chester being injured. When they returned to Europe that year in the fall they unfortunately didn't make that show up and the 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 European tours didn't touch down in Norway, so this is the first time the band will perform in the country. The Hove Festival was started in 2007 and had over 72,000 attendees, making it the biggest festival in the country.


On the 26th in Imola, Italy, LP performed a setlist called "B_NO_ENCORE", which is a shortened version of their B16 setlist that debuted in Stockholm (show page here) earlier in the tour. The Imola set cut out 'Burning In The Skies', 'Fallout', and 'Shadow Of The Day'. This falls in line with what LP was doing for the first few festivals of this tour in Europe (like in Nickelsdorf - show page here) by playing their setlist "C_NO ENCORE_FESTIVAL" - a shortened setlist for just festivals with no encore break.


Here's a pretty good video of 'The Requiem' and 'Faint' opening the show in Imola:



Since LP has only festivals left on this tour, will they omit the encore break at the rest of the European shows? They have performed shortened setlists of two of their sets they've been playing in Europe, but not their C7 set (Stockholm's show page here with that) yet. Will 'Blackout', which is in that setlist, make it into consideration for the shortened form of C7? Or will LP only stick with the two festival sets they've already played? Do you think it's odd seeing 'In The End' and 'Bleed It Out' so high up in the set with no encore break and 'Papercut' so low, or do you welcome the small change? Would you like to see LP swap positions of any other songs in the set like they did with 'Numb' in the #3 spot in 2006 (Osaka show page here)?


Who is going to see the Hove Festival? Has anyone gotten a M&G for the show? The festival program indicates that 30 Seconds To Mars, All Time Low, Jimmy Eat World and Blood Command will be opening for Linkin Park on the "Hovescenen" - the main stage.


On the 30th, Linkin Park plays Rock Werchter in Belgium, one of the largest music festivals in Europe. Three shows in July in Arras, France, St. Gallen, Switzerland and London, England wrap up their seventeen show Summer Tour. For all of the 2011 tour and show information, click here.

This is a rough setlist... I wasn't there just to see Linkin Park and I had to move due to a very annoying and wild crowd in the front. Maybe you guys can recognize this and fill out the rest.


70% sure about this order, but don't take my word for it :)


Lying From You

Wretches and Kings

What I've Done

No More Sorrow

New Divide

Waiting For the End (a clear highlight!)

In the End


Bleed it Out (first verse of a Place for My Head and the ''Go away'' part after that)

One Step Closer


unsure about order... I have no idea when these songs came

- Iridiscent

- The Catalyst

- Breaking the Habit
