hahninator Posted September 1, 2012 Share Posted September 1, 2012 For the next three shows Linkin Park, Incubus and MUTEMATH take a break from the Honda Civic Tour by heading to Canada for two festivals and an arena show, the first of which is X-FEST in Calgary, Alberta on the 1st. This show takes place at Fort Calgary. Although Linkin Park has played in Toronto and Montreal semi-frequently and even Vancouver a few times and Québec once on their trips to Canada, they have NEVER played in Calgary before! Both Calgary and the next show in Edmonton are new territories for the band - the first time they've visited a new city in Canada since 2008, when they played in Québec just before Projekt Revolution (show page here). This is also the first festival in Canada they've played since that date. Pretty cool! One thing we forgot to mention about the last show in Englewood, CO (show page here) is that Linkin Park actually played the same venue on the same date in 2004 on Projekt Revolution (show page here). That rarely ever happens for the band so it's definitely worth a mention. And in case you weren't paying attention to what happened at that show, Incubus's guitarist Mike Einziger joined the band for 'Bleed It Out' and shredded a pretty badass guitar solo after the 'Sabotage' bridge of the song. A close look at the guest action: And at 6:54 in this video: Mike Shinoda on Twitter: "Wowzers. Our special guest @MichaelEinziger shredded tonight on Bleed It Out. #HondaCivicTour @IncubusBand" Mike Einziger's reply: "@mikeshinoda @incubusband @linkinpark that was only the first night. there's a lot more where that came from!" So it looks like this guitar-shredding guest feature will continue! Do you guys like it? Love it? The setlist for Calgary is really up in the air - since Englewood had US Set A out of the normal rotation (US Set C was scheduled to be next), we can't really guess what the Calgary show will have! It really could be any of the three sets...so we'll have to see! What set do you think this show will have? Is anyone from LPLive seeing the show today? Bands joining Linkin Park, Incubus and MUTEMATH at this show include Silversun Pickups, Young The Giant, Fun., The Joy Formidable, The Pack Ad, and L.P. (haha)! Set times can be found here. After this show, the three bands on the Honda Civic Tour play SONiC BOOM in Edmonton on the 2nd and then play an arena show in Vancouver on the 4th. The tour resumes on the 5th in Tacoma, WA before ending with three shows in California: Mountain View, Carson and Chula Vista.
