23.02.2013 - Brisbane, Australia - Soundwave


Recommended Posts

On the 23rd, Linkin Park plays Brisbane, Australia for the first time since 2010, when they opened their Australian Tour for A Thousand Suns in Brisbane (show page here). It will be their fourth appearance in the city since 2001, the others coming at Livid Festival in 2003 and at the last show on the Australia / New Zealand Tour for Minutes To Midnight in 2007 (show page here). A particular highlight from the 2007 show was Chester going pretty far out into the crowd with his cast on to let the fans help him with 'Bleed It Out'.



At the last show in Auckland, the band held their 8th LPU Summit and treated fans to a five song soundcheck before the show instead of playing any songs acoustically like most Summits have had. The set for that show remained the same, with 'TINFOIL' and 'Faint' opening. This will be LP's first show in Australia since 2010, when they played nine shows there on the A Thousand Suns World Tour.


According to the Soundwave timetable, LP plays from 6:30-7:45 on Stage 1 B, opposite from Stage 1 A where Metallica will play just after them. Right before LP is A Perfect Circle on the other stage. This will be the first of five Soundwave shows for the band, with the others coming in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Two headlining shows appear on this tour on 26th in Sydney and the 27th in Melbourne (both with Stone Sour opening).


Due to Linkin Park only getting 75 minutes for this show, the set will obviously have to be shortened. Will they play a shorter version of Set A, or will they rotate it and try something different for the Soundwave shows? What do you think? Will they open with a song like 'A Place For My Head', perhaps?


The next Soundwave show comes on the 24th in Sydney. The rest of the 2013 tour dates can be found here.


EDIT: Thanks to LPL member "troub1eboy", we have a picture of Set B for Australia (from the LPU Summit in Auckland). 'CASTLE OF GLASS' replaces 'IN MY REMAINS' in that setlist as well, and 'In The End' is moved up a few spots. This set is likely to be played in Sydney on the 26th (headline show).

LP played Birsbane first in 2010 on the A Thousand Suns tour. Its listed as "Boondall" which is a suburb in north Brisbane, same location as the show in 2007.


Edit: Also yeah no slow stuff or they will get killed by the crowd... Can't wait tomorrow will be amazing! Bring on Billy Talent also!!

they're gonna play only singles...YAY! :blink:

They might but Soundwave's in the past have been unpredictable and crazy. Note 2 years ago 30 Seconds to Mars inviting a heap of people to crowd surf to the front and join them on stage... or Fred Durst last year just deciding to stop the set to have a beer and throw beers to the crowd. Hopefully LP do something memorable.

No new songs.

As i said a couple of days ago, Powerless will be release live in the Summer Sonic.

Is a shame that songs like I'll Be Gone (maybe) never will played live.


This is the most short Tour Cycle ever for Linkin Park?, correct me i'm wrong but only: 70 Shows, maybe more if they confirms another dates...

The Soundwave sets are 75 minutes, not 45 :) So should be enough time for 16-18 songs.

I can tweet the setlists if I get a good spot. Probably won't be recording today's show so very likely to be tweeting instead.

maybe shortened setlist like in Austria

I love IMR live, but it seems like Chester struggles a lot to perform that song. I think this could be the reason that it isn't played all the time..

indeed,he has to put very much effort in this song,"Sinking down and waiting,For the chance to feel alive",now jump from lower tone to higher tone using the best voice>"Now in my remains",again get low>Are promises that never came,

ok sing it in higher tone now>Set the silence free.come on again down>To wash away the worst of me.it's not easy,not at all,you've to give the best to audience,if you fail,show is over,he's not gonna fail,but it messes w/ his throat,he has done awesome shows since 2000,now I guess,he needs to do bit mercy on his throat.he's a very good singer
