Tonight, Linkin Park will be playing in Culver City, CA for VGA Ten (Video Game Awards Ten) at Sony Pictures Studios. Tenacious D will also be performing and the show will be hosted by none other than Samuel L. Jackson! Catch the performance on Spike TV at 9:00pm EST / 6:00pm PST and also on MTV 2, MTV Tr3s, Spike.com and GameTrailers.com.

 

The band will be debuting 'CASTLE OF GLASS' tonight for its first performance ever. The first appearance of the song comes almost two months after its

was released in October. It will be the latest debut off of the album, which has already had 'LOST IN THE ECHO', 'IN MY REMAINS', 'BURN IT DOWN', 'LIES GREED MISERY', 'VICTIMIZED' (mashed up with part of 'QWERTY'), 'TINFOIL' and part of 'UNTIL IT BREAKS', making it the eighth song off of LIVING THINGS to be played live in some form. Only 'I'LL BE GONE', 'ROADS UNTRAVELED', 'SKIN TO BONE', 'POWERLESS', and a full 'UNTIL IT BREAKS' remain to be played.

 

Who will be watching tonight? Who's excited to see the song appear live?

 

stage_rad has been posting some Instagram pictures of rehearsals the past few days, check a few of those out right here and here.

 

On the 8th, Linkin Park will be playing the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas in Universal City, CA at the Gibson Amphitheatre. It will be their first appearance at KROQ AAC since 2007. It is also their last show scheduled for 2012, so hopefully there will be a surprise or two in the setlist for the show! For the full 2012 list of tour dates including setlists, show notes, pictures and more, click here.

 

EDIT:

 

 

The performance of the song has produced some of the most positive comments we've heard on a live debut of a song in a while! Maybe since 'Blackout'? Check the HD video above and let us know your thoughts in the comments. Also, this shot of four band members singing has been getting a lot of praise. Not bad! Overall it was a very nice debut for 'CASTLE OF GLASS'!

I don't think it will be acoustic but that looks like the ideal place in the set for it.

I'd drop Lying From You / Papercut and add POWERLESS instead. The rest looks good.

The song that needs a new face is NUMB, god they have never done anything to it, im so sick of it, they can do a lot of things

 

*acoustic version

*piano version

*bring the Collision Course beat

Also, the Rock AM Ring 2004 version was epic... My favorite one. They could do a lot for Numb. I am sick of it as well. I don't think they will ever drop it, though... Seems to be a staple.

Warren (one of the guys of LP Crew) said today that the stage will be huge for tonight.

 

 

KROQ's Show will be broadcasted live as every year?

 

"Watch Saturday night’s show beginning Monday, December 10th at 10am, while Sunday night’s show will be webcast on Tuesday, December 11th at 10am. These will be your only opportunities to watch KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas"

There's no way the live version, especially in it's first performance AND at an awards show, was going to top what's on the album, but it was still a good effort from LP.

 

Cool to see the guys all singing together in a row, and I always love when Chester's background vocals overpower Mike's. As much as I'd like to see the song performed in person, I think it has the same live vibe as "Burning in the Skies" in that it's just not concert friendly.
