19.08.12 - Alpharetta, GA, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre

Recommended Posts

Lucky, lucky New Jersey... LPU Summit action and a brilliant setlist.

to Georgia! The PR07 show in this region was the hottest date on the tour, with temperature reaching an almighty 107˚F (roughly 42°C), let’s see if LP can continue to run up the heat on HCT-goers...

 

Linkin Park has made a grand total of 11 stops in Georgia, but this will be their first time in Alpharetta, having always played in Atlanta, roughly 27 miles away. Georgia, Nevada and Portland are in fact the only states where the band has consistently played in the same city each time they visit (Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland) so tonight is something of a tradition breaker!

 

Having made their GA debut on 99x’s “Big Day Out” show in Atlanta’s Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre, the band has made their mark in numerous venues around the city, most recently playing the Philips Arena on the US Leg of the A Thousand Suns Tour, the Philips Arena has quite a funny history with the band: on LP’s first time playing there (30.10.01), Chester and Brad wore animal masks during the show! And roughly 3 years later, on the last ‘big’ night of the band’s Meteora World Tour (06.03.04) – as documented by the LPTV episode “Meteora World Tour” - numerous members of other bands jumped onstage during One Step Closer, armed with inflatables, some wearing bondage and even bringing a dog with them!

Tonight, the band will be playing Alpharetta’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. Opened in 2008, this 12,000 capacity outdoor venue has played host to Green Day, Judas Priest, and Incubus themselves headlined here in 2011!

 

The LPU Summit attendees in Camden, were fortunate enough to not only see an intimate Acoustic set of The Messenger and In My Remains, but also to have a preview of the band’s yet-to-be-debuted set that night, amongst those who’ve been keeping-up, set B had become something of a myth – a quiet murmur of hope that some of the pure energy of European Festival sets would become first-hand experiences for eager US fans.

Camden were not disappointed – Mansfield and Wantagh (Set A)’s openers Tinfoil and Faint were moved right down as Encore openers, to make way for set B’s almighty A Place for My Head, which made its European return at Rock In Rio (26.05.12). This the first time APFMH has been played in the US since a brief appearance amongst the sets on the band's North. American Arena tour in '08, with the last 'American' performance of APFMH being Edgefest in Montreal that year (12.07.08). Set B kept the momentum going with the new Victimized/QWERTY mash-up. Uncasville and Bristow’s – set C’s - Victimized/QWERTY mash-ups included parts of another mash-up - Lying From You/Papercut - and while set A dropped the mash-up to include full performances of Papercut only (Mansfield), then full versions of both Lying From You and Papercut (Wantagh), Set B included both mash-ups in two separate points in the set - with the Lying From You/Papercut mash-up dropping in right behind Faint in the Encore. This is only the 2nd time any part of Lying From You has been included in an Encore, having first debuted in a similar location on the set as part of the Jay-Z collaboration “Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You”, in Holmdel, NJ (30.07.04). Funny that out of only two times being played there, NJ sees it both times! Mad coincidences aside, the band did cut a few of the little “treat” elements of the set in Camden – Brad did not play the guitar part to Pushing Me Away under In The End’s verse, and Mike didn’t use the lyrics from Numb/Encore over the outro to Numb, and speaking of Numb – Joe didn’t mess with the song! Apparently Mike turned to him and pointed before the song started, and the intro went off without a hitch...

What perhaps is most interesting however, is the amount of changes made to the set between the time that pictures leaked onto various fan-site twitters via the Summit, and to the set actually played that night; the leaked set gave no indication that Empty Spaces/When They Come For Me would be played between Somewhere I Belong and Lies Greed Misery, Crawling – once again – was pulled right off the setlist to be replaced by Numb, while In The End was added between the listed What I’ve Done and Bleed It Out. Crawling is the most significant loss, and is looking less and less hopeful of being in future sets, judging by the fact that it’s now been missing off setlists or indeed pulled last-minute for most of the tour...

Set B is likely to be played in Alpharetta again, but as we know from Mansfield/Wantagh, no set is exactly the same: for HCT, all bets are off!

 

There is only video I could pick to demonstrate Camden’s Set B...

There are videos that show the full song, but for sound quality this is the best. apologies for the annoying hat too. I wonder if it's the "scumbag" hat from Mark's LPL avatar...

 

Now that we’ve seen sets A, B and C, the rumours of a collaboration between LP and Incubus have faded fast, and it looks unlikely we’ll see a PR04/08-style appearance from Brandon Boyd or Chester. Sad, but I’m sure most are too busy enjoying the setlists this year to notice!

 

Tonight, Mark (Hahninator) will be the only LPL Staff Member present at the show, as Jonas (AndOne) is heading back to Europe. So if you’re going to the show you know have even more of a reason to go and say hi to Mark! He’ll be volunteering on the MFR booth tonight, so go and have a chat with him, and be sure to donate too.

This is Mark’s last night following the Honda Civic Tour, so this’ll be your last night to catch his live setlist updates happening over on his twitter at twitter.com/hahninator. Want to stay right up to date with the show, as it happens? This is your man.

Is it just me, or are the showpage links not working properly?

yeah sorry a bunch of them f---ed up since I wrote this in word and the board messed with the tags, should be all fixed now.

 

I also fixed my facts on the last time APFMH was played in the US

edgefest '08, not Mountain View '04 - was quite a long way off with that one :P

Ahh, great. Well, Edgefest was in Canada right? So I guess it would be Sacramento, CA on 10.03.2008 - unless you mean North America and not US. Minor details, boring sunday you know :)

Wonder if they permanently cut Crawling in favor of WTCFM. I'll miss Crawling.
