hahninator Posted February 28, 2013 Share Posted February 28, 2013 On March 1st, Linkin Park plays in Melbourne, Australia at Flemington Racecourse for the sixth show of their New Zealand/Australia Tour. This will be their third Soundwave show of the tour, coming two days after their headline show at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on the 27th of February (show page here). Since the band played a club show in Melbourne in 2001 and played at Rod Laver Arena in 2007 (2 nights), 2010 (2 nights), and 2013, this will only be the third different venue they have played at in the city. However, it will be their seventh show in Melbourne overall. At the last show in Melbourne, LP did something they've never done before - they gave fans at the show a choice between two songs. 'In The End' is normally the second encore song in Set A (whose encore consists of 'BURN IT DOWN', 'In The End', and 'Bleed it Out), but the band asked if the fans wanted to hear 'A Place For My Head' or 'In The End'. From the video, it seems like 'In The End' had the louder crowd reaction and Chester really wanted to play 'A Place For My Head', but whatever the real reason was....the band decided to deviate and play 'A Place For My Head'. Another interesting thing about the show is that Rob's drum solo during the bridge of 'Bleed It Out' returned - something he hasn't done in quite some time. One interesting thing to point out is that there are now three festival shows left on this tour. At the Auckland Summit, there was a picture of "Australia Headline Set B", which was the full Set B but it hasn't been played on this tour yet. It seems possible that that setlist was going to be played in Auckland but the band changed to Set A. Anyway, there are two setlists that they have been playing at Soundwave - Festival Set A and Festival Set B, which are both just abbreviated versions of Set A ('TINFOIL'/'Faint' opening) and Set B ('A Place For My Head' opening). Melbourne likely will get the Festival Set B since Set A was played at its headline show. If you've been away from the site for a day or so, here are several things you might have missed: - We asked fans in a poll whether they'd be ok with 'A Place For My Head' replacing 'In The End' in one setlist. - Former LPL staff member shadowfax1007 posted a recording of the Feb 24 Sydney Soundwave show. - Our 2013 "Live Poll" is going to close after March 4th. Currently, 'P5hng Me A*wy', 'Figure.09' and 'Don't Stay' are the top 3 songs LPLive members want to see played live again. After this show, the band closes the tour with shows in Adelaide on the 2nd and in Perth on the 4th. For the full 2013 tour schedule including setlists from past shows on this tour, click here.
