hahninator Posted February 6, 2013 Share Posted February 6, 2013 After playing a usual warmup show in Las Vegas on the 16th, Linkin Park heads to Australia & New Zealand for a few headlining shows and for the Soundwave Festival. Today, the Soundwave Facebook page has released the schedule for the 72 bands playing 9 stages at Soundwave for Brisbane and Sydney, the first two stops for the festival. It can probably be assumed that the schedule will be almost the exact same for the other three shows after that too. It is also important to note that there are two main stages, which means the transitions between bands will be small. With Metallica "headlining" the festival (aka playing as the last band on the main stage), this puts Linkin Park on Stage 1 B, the second main stage. The time that LP gets to play is from 6:30-7:45, meaning 1 hour and 15 minutes. As headliners, Metallica gets a whopping 2 hours and 15 minutes. It is also worth mentioning the bands playing before LP. Before them on the same stage is Slayer, and the band that performs right before them on Stage 1 A is A Perfect Circle. Before A Perfect Circle, there is Stone Sour and Bullet For My Valentine. With an hour and 15 minutes, LP can probably play between 16-19 songs depending on what they play. For an idea of what could be played, last year the band did a 15 song set for KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas in December (show page here) and a weather-shortened show at NovaRock in Austria for 16 songs (show page here). The 16 song set only clocked in at 65 minutes, so it's possible they could play more than 16 songs. Soundwave includes the following shows for Linkin Park: 23.02.2013 Brisbane, QLD, RNA Showgrounds 24.02.2013 Sydney, NSW, Olympic Park 01.03.2013 Melbourne, VIC, Flemington Racecourse 02.03.2013 Adelaide, SA, Bonython Park 04.03.2013 Perth, WA, Claremont Showground The headlining shows in Auckland, Darling Harbour and Melbourne will obviously get full setlists, so the band might stick with two setlists for this tour (one for Soundwave and one for the headlining shows). What would you like to see them play? Do you think they will debut any other songs off of LIVING THINGS? What do you think the 75 minute setlist will include?

Linkin Park is playing at the same time (still for an hour and fifteen minutes, as expected), but a few of the other bands have changed time-wise.
