Best Live Recordings? AUD/DSP

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I need help selecting the best live recordings of Linkin Park for my IPhone. I love the live stuff a lot more than studio. I only have 10 GBs left on my IPhone and I want to at least get a couple shows from each year. They can be audience or soundboard recordings.

My list will encompass both what I would call an "awesome" or "epic" show with a good recording of it. I know some of these are video but I listen to the audio for them as I rarely ever watch LP video haha. The ones in bold are ones you simply have to have 100% and cannot miss if you like LP live. You have my full guarantee that the bolded ones are A++++. I am biased a little bit for A Place For My Head and P5hng Me A*wy though, haha.

 

2000: (not a big fan of the 2000-era of LP for some reason. these are the few I listen to every now and then though, but I can't honestly recommend any 2000 show as a "must have" to you)

11.10.2000 Springfield

17.12.2000 KROQ AAC

21.12.2000 Modesto

 

2001:

03.02.2001 Dragon Festival - crowd is loud as hell, great performance by LP, listened to this one a few times recently

21.02.2001 NYC - Mike crowdsurfing! Good NYC show.

16.04.2001 Palladium - probably one of my top 3 LP recordings ever, such an awesome show. Chester in PJs! This is a really good one.

02.06.2001 Rock im Park (Night Show) - Taking Slipknot's place. Mike/Chester are either very drunk or on some serious drugs. Hilarious commentary at this one and they win the Slipknot crowd over who ends up loving them by the end.

16.09.2001 London - Biggest headlining show for them at the time. So good. And One at this one is the best I've heard. Definitely my favorite proshot video of LP that exists.

 

2002:

08.02.2002 Uniondale - Sal comes up for My Own Summer! My favorite 2002 show with a cool setlist. Can't recommend any 2002 show as a "must have" though. Good shows but none were 100% epic.

 

2003:

The sound on the LPU Tour was so weird and bassy...band sounded really odd to me. Can't recommend any shows from that tour as I just don't really like the sound on the whole tour. Must have been the new LP gear with the small venues. The pro audio sounds good but the fan audio doesn't sound good at least to me. It sucks because the crowds on the entire tour are going absolutely. fucking. nuts. Europe god damn explodes the whole show at all the LPU shows.

02.03.2003 Paris - would probably sound the best on an iPod. it's a good show with a crazy crowd.

12.03.2003 NYC - This one or Paris are the "least bassy" sounding ones, and Chester is in love with the crowd in NYC I think due to the commentary from him on this tour (ESPECIALLY Nottingham earlier in this LPU Tour) he must have smoked a lot of weed before he performed lol. So much cussing on this tour from him, but really entertaining. One of them is on With You at this show. Nottingham's APFMH speech is the best one though lol

09.08.2003 Los Angeles - My favorite Sanitarium show. Hometown show for LP. Band in great shape.

22.08.2003 Reading Festival - One of the best LP shows ever recorded. Hope we get a DSP someday. Crowd going apeshit the whole show and the band is exploding about it. Don't ever miss this show.

25.10.2003 Tokyo (Night 2) - Of the 3 nights in Tokyo I like this one the best. Since 2005, nkramar and I have been randomly texting each other "Yeah we're gonna do this one beginning-to-end, Reanimation-style just for you guys. It's called P5hng Me A*wy" just because the P5hng from this show is so good. Incredible audio quality for a recording...I listen to this show probably the most out of any live LP recording I have. Band is on fire. My December returns to the setlist for the first time all year. APFMH and OSC are sick. Night 3 is also really good (Mike gives a speech in Japanese after APFMH & the crowd goes crazy) but this one is my favorite. Love. this. show.

21.11.2003 Manchester - Such a shame we only have 1 recording of this setlist with Papercut opening. Standing In The Middle over Nobody's Listening and really neat set before the Meteora World Tour in 2004 kicks off.

 

2004:

15.03.2004 Inglewood - last show of the tour, a makeup show. 2 LP birthdays at this one.

06.06.2004 Rock am Ring - you already know this show. it speaks for itself!

09.06.2004 Lisbon - I like this show more than Rock am Ring. Another fan up on APFMH but it seems like a better show overall.

03.08.2004 Camden - proshot is here on LPLive. Great show.

28.04.2004 Somerset - there are only 3 full, good PR04 recordings (my favorite tour LP has ever done). this one is stellar!

05.09.2004 Mountain View - the unbeatable show. I mean wow. If you ask me my favorite Linkin Park show I've ever heard 2000-now, it is EASILY Mountain View 2004. The A Place For My Head here speaks for itself. Never heard Chester roar like that on the bridge.

 

2005:

18.02.2005 Music For Relief - just recently released here. instantly one of the most epic shows LP has ever played. a must have. LP/JZ! Frgt10!

 

2006:

12.08.2006 Osaka - My favorite Reading My Eyes comes from this performance. But just an awesome show overall. I listen to it a lot and I feel like it's one of the best overall LP shows that I've heard. What a cool setlist too. Really love Osaka 2006.

13.08.2006 Tokyo - I have to recommend this one because the commentary is great and the crowd is really good too. The quality of the recording isn't the greatest though so for quality get Osaka, but get Tokyo for the laughs and just to listen to once or twice. I hope we get a DSP of this show sometime.

 

2007:

Hamburg would be up here if the recording is ever released someday. I don't feel like LP got into the "epic show" stage until Projekt Revolution though. So the DSPs start here:

25.07.2007 Auburn - People still call this the best DSP that LP has released. Pooch even gets angry because so many fans tell him to mix shows like this one. For some reason though, this show has a different sound than any other DSP. Each instrument comes through so well in the mix. The result is one of the best DSPs the band has ever released and people LOVE it. It's also a great fucking show lol. Live debuts for a few songs as well as new intros/outros to some songs. This is my favorite Bleed It Out the band has ever played (that I've heard).

07.08.2007 Atlanta - biased because I was there and it was my first LP show. But Mike dedicates TLTGYA to all the people from New Orleans, which he's only done once. It got picked for the LPU 7.0 show too. Until about 2010 this was my favorite What I've Done I've heard them play too. On OSC a lot of the crowd in the seats were standing up in the seats and people were going apeshit lol. Mike on his blog recommended this show for download as well. Must have been 110 degrees at this one. Not even the hottest PR07 show but it was a great one.

15.10.2007 Melbourne (Night 2) - Chester breaks his wrist. Really interesting to hear how the rest of the show goes after that.

22.10.2007 Brisbane - My favorite post-PR07 show from 2007. Chester in the crowd on Bleed It Out with his cast on "YOU READY TO FUCKIN SING WITH ME" - A great end to the Australia/NZ tour. The band talks a lot and I really like this setlist. With my 3 recommendations from 2007, you get all 3 setlists and fucking GREAT performances of all 3. This was the only audience recording we had of the tour until they released the DSPs a few years ago, so I was very glad to get this show.

 

2008:

16.01.2008 Hannover - so biased on this one because when this setlist leaked online the LP fanbase ROARED in appreciation. People came back from the show with incredible reviews (Mike's "Just Like Heaven" cover, APFMH returning but with a new Brad Delson solo intro, KRWLNG intro returning to Crawling, My December and BTH in an encore, WID opening with a new epic intro, TWO encores, etc). Instantly this became a big hit for a DSP favorite. Crowd is in to this one from the get-go and it turns out to be my favorite 2008 show.

20.01.2008 Frankfurt - I've listened to the Germany early 2008 shows a lot recently...band plays so well with lots of energy on the stage. They play better with a great crowd and Germany always delivers. I love this show.

21.01.2008 Koln - The next night is just as good, lol. All of these new setlists in early 2008 had GREAT performances when they first started playing them. Ask a German which one is better between Frankfurt and Koln...I like Frankfurt a bit better.

26.02.2008 Nashville - probably a better show than Hannover but the crowd isn't as good. Mike sprays the crowd with silly string on APFMH intro when he appears way out in the crowd lol. Great show.

----how sad we have no DSPs of Europe's summer tour in 2008 besides Milton Keynes----

12.07.2008 Toronto - don't miss out on the coolest start to an LP show in a while. BTH piano, PMA piano, and HHH partially piano before the rest of the band arrives and they start the show. LP arrives mega late to this show so Shinoda and Chester have to improvise on how to start the show. Good performance.

17.08.2008 Camden - the best PR08 show and only one I'd recommend. This one is good.

 

2009:

30.07.2009 Stuttgart - very biased because I was there but the crowd was going just nuts the whole show...over 30,000 there. Reading My Eyes over POA outro, Chester in great shape, crowd chanting Mike's name before BTH. Crowd has no idea WTF happens for Dead By Sunrise so they go fucking crazy when LP comes back for their final encore. The energy keeps building song after song on the encore (New Divide, Faint, OSC)...dust everywhere lol. What an amazing show, definitely the #1 LP show I've ever seen. Listen to the crowd at the end of SIB when Chester yells STUTTGART. Place is exploding. I'll never see a crowd at any show I ever see again that was as good as this one. It's the only DSP I have a CD of in my car and I listen to it frequently.

 

2010:

20.10.2010 Berlin - First show in Germany for the ATS tour. Honorable mention of the WTCFM performance here. This was also the first DSP we got for ATS so I guess I'm biased since I listen to it a lot. Paris had APFMH's only 2010 performance but I think Berlin is the best overall show of the tour.

13.12.2010 Melbourne (Night 2) - Endless speculation show after show for weeks....and they finally debuted Blackout and Burning In The Skies at this one. So a good DSP because of that but ND/F/OSC closed the encore (that epic 2009 encore they had) again. And fuck Iridescent (this was 1 of only 2 times it wasn't played on the ATS World Tour). But no 2010 performance is incredible enough for the bold mention...seems like the band wasn't just bringing the crazy energy like 2009.

 

2011:

Ooooh I didn't think they had a lot of energy on the US tour either and it didn't carry through the year. Hamburg was a good show. I wasn't at any 2011 show besides the first 3 so I can't really comment.

14.06.2011 Stockholm - my favorite recording of the year. Crowd rocks. Watch a video of Faint from this one haha. People were really looking for a setlist change around this time (after 4 shows of about the same thing) so Stockholm brought a lot of relief with a headlining show, a new setlist and a crazy crowd.

 

2012:

Finally LP gets their on stage energy back that they really lacked in 2010 and 2011 (in my opinion). New setlists and a gooooooood European Tour to start the LT World Tour.

26.05.2012 Lisbon - Webcast of the new set! Instant hit. Crazy crowd (Portugal always kicks ass) and an awwwwwesome show. Shinoda even says "Pooch crank that shit" before Papercut, lol. Recommended because it brings it big time.

Most of the Euro Tour was great. Berlin, Moscow, St. Petersburg, etc. I'd recommend Wantagh if it had a DSP actually even though I dislike that setlist a lot.

17.08.2012 Camden - LPU Summit. APFMH with the new setlist and the damn debut of TINFOIL, Faint LFY/Papercut, OSC in the encore. So great. And WTCFM sneaks in after a leaked setlist earlier in the day shows Crawling instead. Pit was going off at this show and LP in my opinion was in the best shape live since Stuttgart 2009 when I saw them there. Destroys the 2010 and 2011 shows lol.

The South American Tour is something that speaks for itself though. The Rio crowds are the loudest crowds you'll ever hear in an LP DSP. They are really just like the LPU Tour 2003 but even better, probably. Brazil really goes off. Sao Paulo is another great show. I recommend all 3 of those. I've never heard LP crowds as loud as Rio N1 and N2. They chant for Crawling so loudly in between songs that Chester is basically forced to sing it for them LOL.

Oh man. There are a lot for me.

 

2000:
2000.09.16 - Orlando, FL. This was the very first live recording I had ever heard from the band and I can't remember where my friend downloaded it from. However, he gave it to me on a CD and I listened to it a lot. The band brings good energy and Chester sounds really badass and old-school.

 

2001:

2001.01.11 - Goldsmith College. Probably my favorite HT show. Band has epic energy, once again. Chester also still has that old-school sound to his voice that is lost in pretty much all shows after this one and never comes back in his career. The banter is cool in this one, too.

 

2001.07.24 - Toronto, ON. Part of With You (the first song) is cut but this show is a must have, IMO. Epic banter throughout. Love when Chester says to someone in the crowd ''nice shot, motherfucker!''. But basically  the banter throughout this entire recording is just plain epic. Does have some muffled sound here and there but it's few and far between. My favorite Ozzfest show, for sure. Wish I could have been there.

 

2001.09.16 - Docklands Arena. Everyone knows this huge show for the band. Nothing more to say other than it's a must have.

 

2002:
Nothing from this year really strikes me as something amazing.

 

2003:

2003.08.22 - Reading, ENG. MUST HAVE. Probably the best show of the early years of the band. The crowd goes NUTS here and the banter from Chester is nothing short of epic. And the set is amazing. If this show existed in SBD audio, it would go down in history.

 

2004:

2004.02.02 - Colorado Springs, CO. This was the second show I had ever listened to after Orlando 2000. Once again, my friend at the time had burned it for me on CD and I loved it. I would listen to it all the time - when I went to bed, when I was in school, in the car, etc. I especially loved Faint from this show but I remember loving the entire show. The whole show wouldn't fit on one CD so he excluded OSC but I downloaded the whole show years later and it's just as good as the rest of the show. Haha. Anyways, a solid set, solid performance. Love it.

 

2004.06.06 - Rock Am Ring. Everyone knows the show. A must have.

 

2004.09.05 - Mountain View, CA. Strangely, I'm not huge on the PR04 stuff anymore, after we have heard so many shows now (Charlotte, Bristow, etc.) I felt like fans used to judge the tour solely off of how Mountain View was because it was one of the only full recordings at the time. Little did we know that Mountain View was an exception. Darien Center is probably my favorite show though honestly, but the quality is so bad that I won't bother recommending it. Mountain View here though, is nothing short of EPIC. The set is full of amazing stuff, the performance is A+, the band gave it their all. Chester's screaming is something that he has never done before this show, or after it. It's next level. The banter is funny. Yeah, you're missing Jonathan Davis on OSC with this show but I never cared much for that anyways and Chester sings the song better, IMO, without him.

 

2005:

Nothing from this year really strikes me as something amazing.

 

2006:

2006.08.15 - Sendai, JP. Now, most people here picked Osaka or Chiba. However, I find this show to be the best of the year. The atmosphere is more layed back because it's not technically a Summer Sonic show with Metallica. The set is better with My December instead of Pushing Me Away. The best Reading My Eyes is from this show, IMO. It's extended and the banter before the song is super funny. The banter this entire show is nothing short of epic. ''Mike-stand'', etc. The performance is solid, too. The quality isn't the best but it's still good. Like Reading 2003, if this show existed in SBD audio, people would consider it one of the best shows in the band's career.

 

2007:
2007.04.28 - Berlin, BE. This show not only brings back memories (me and my friend stayed up all night for YouTube videos of NMS and GU), but it's also a good show. It's basically the first MTM show (I don't really count the rehearsals performances as shows). The band sounded good. There isn't too much banter in this show but that's fine. I love how Mike rapped There They Go over Faint and brought up a fan on stage for it, too. Pretty rare for the band to do that past 2004.

 

2007.06.08 - Lisboa, PT. I remember religiously watching the videos from the webcast of this show back in the day. Really solid show. Excellent performance from the band, super high energy, cool set, etc. Nothing to complain about as far as I'm concerned. The band also opened for Pearl Jam at this show, which is cool.

 

2007.07.25 - Auburn, WA. No list would be complete without this show. Everyone says it is the best DSP out there. To a point that it has become a joke to some fans. Although, I think this DSP is amazing. The sound is way different than most other DSP's (the few shows after this show kind of sound the same but not really). Really great sound and great performance from the band. The banter is absolutely epic, too, the best of the MTM tour. Just an overall A+ performance. Must have.

 

2008:

 

2008.02.16 -  Detroit, MI. I love this show. IMO, it has a great energy from the band, something that lacked in a lot of 2008 shows. The banter is good. Chester sounds good here. My favorite of 2008, for sure. Unique set, too.

 

2008.07.19 - Camden, NJ. As Hahninator said above, best show of PR08, for sure. I love this show. Solid performance from the band, in once again, not a great sounding time for them, IMO. Has a lot of cool stuff like WMI, S.D.C., etc. Just a good show to have.

 

2009:

 

2009.07.19 - Istanbul, TR. Something about the audio of this show is really good to me. I like the way it sounds more than DSP's from 2009. And I love this performance, too. Debut of the 2009 tour and a solid performance. Rare place for them to play, too, I think this is the only time that the band ever performed in Turkey (despite a cancel there in 2008). However, you need to find the absolute best quality mp3 for this show, as some sources here on LPLive of the show aren't that good.

 

2010:

 

2010.11.15 - Tel Aviv, IL. A really great show. Great performance. Chester sounds really good at this show with his screams, especially in OSC. The Bob Marley cover before The Messenger was also epic. Another super rare place for the band to play. Definitely the best show of 2010, IMO. A lot of other 2010 shows had a weird energy and rhythm, at least to me. But this one was good.

 

2011:

 

2011.06.04 - Irvine, CA. Something about this show has always been epic to me. I love the short little ATS set (well, it's still a 120 min set). But the band sounded really tight here. I don't think that the band sounded that good from about mid 2008 to about this show, they had a weird energy, but there were a few exceptions that I posted above during those years. However, when I first watched this webcast, I felt like the band was back. I loved this show. Was funny too when Chester threw a little shade at Dave Grohl for his ''surprise'' visit. Haha. But this really was a cool show.

 

2011.06.28 - Arendal, NO. Wow... a lot to say about this show. The crowd was insane at this show, which Chester even went on to say was the craziest crowd that the band had ever played for. The energy from the band matched the crowd. Solid set, too. I love the 120 min ATS sets. This one was so good. Given Up was crazy at this show. The whole show was just awesome, it's a must have, the best of the ATS era for sure, IMO.

 

2012:

 

2012.09.02 - Edmonton, AB. This is by far my favorite show of the LT era. It has everything that was great about this time in the band's career. An energizing set, something lacking with ATS in some ways, it has Mike from Incubus on BIO and it features the best sounding performance from him out of this tour, IMO. It has Sabotage over BIO, too. Also, a rare place to play for the band, too.

 

2013:

 

2013.08.10 - Chiba, JP. 2013 was a good sounding year for the band, they had good energy and sounded good. But there aren't many recordings that are good. And no full professional recordings, either. This one has a full recording and it is pretty good. I listen to it a lot, actually. It's a must have.

 

2014:

Honestly, I really don't like 2014 shows at all. Idk why. I went to 4 myself but just didn't love this year. Nothing special sticks out to me. And the recordings were meh. Some would have been good like Hollywood Bowl but GATS and partial GU were missing. Ruins the show without those. Sucks because that recording had a GREAT sound and had some great guest spots like Daron Malakian and Austin Carlile. But without those first couple songs, it ruins it.

 

2015:

2015.05.09 - Las Vegas, NV. Love this short little 120 min set. Super tight set, it all flows smoothly and has great energy. Big step up from the 2014 sets, IMO. ALITS debut, too. And you have OM&M members coming out on a few songs which is epic. Great energy from the band, too, surprisingly.

 

2016:
Had no shows.

 

2017:

2017.05.09 - Santiago, CL. There is a great full audience recording of this show. Love this show. Early OML show and has debuts of OML and Invisible. Chester sounded good here which is rare for a 2017 show. Love the set, love the performance. And it marks a simpler time, one before Chris Cornell's death, where things may have been ok for Chester at the time of this show, who knows.

 

2017.07.01 - Rock Werchter, BE. The last pro-shot show in full with Chester. Solid performance from the band. The sound is a bit weird but you get used to it. Has some funny banter too when Chester mentions the binoculars.
