hahninator Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 Linkin Park's second show in South Africa and final show in Africa comes on the 10th in Johannesburg, South Africa at FNB Stadium. Holding 94,736 people, this is one of the largest venues Linkin Park has ever headlined. It is unknown how many people this show will hold, but it is sure to be a packed crowd just like the last one in Cape Town. Previous shows at this venue have included U2 (with a crowd of 94,232 people!!!), Neil Diamond, Coldplay (with 62,000 people), and Kings Of Leon. In Cape Town (show page here), the band treated LPU'ers to the 7th LPU Summit by hosting a variety of activities including a backstage tour and an exclusive six song soundcheck performance before the show. As far as the setlist goes, Linkin Park stuck with US Set A (opening with 'TINFOIL' and 'Faint') for their performance at the very windy venue. It wouldn't surprise us if they stuck with Set A again in Johannesburg but it's definitely possible they'll play Set B ('A Place For My Head' opening) or Set C ('With You' opening). After all, 'When They Come For Me' definitely needs a performance in South Africa! KONGOS (the opening band in Cape Town) will also open the Johannesburg show. Before the show, there was an accident outside of Cape Town Stadium resulting in about 19 injuries and one confirmed death, the first known death at a Linkin Park show. This prompted the band to issue a statement on their Facebook page, stating "Though we have had no relationship with the sponsor or the entity responsible for erecting the structure, we take the safety of our fans very seriously and our thoughts are with all of those who were affected by this tragedy." Who from LPLive is going to this show? Anyone lucky enough to score a M&G? After this show, the band has one more show scheduled (at least for now) in 2012 - the American Music Awards at LA's Nokia Theatre on November 18th. Maybe they'll play KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas in December? For the full 2012 tour schedule including past dates and setlists, click here. SETLIST: 01. A Place For My Head (Long Intro, Ext.
