  1. Yeah, some shows (especially in Asia) are harder to cover than others, especially factoring in time zones and such. We're still figuring it out but here's what we believe the set is so far: 1. Introduction 2. Petrified xx. In Stereo xx. Castle of Glass xx. World's On Fire xx. Iridescent xx. WFTE/WYG xx. In The End xx. Numb xx. About You xx. Over Again xx. Papercut xx. It's Goin' Down/Step Up xx. Good Goodbye/Bleed It Out xx. Running From My Shadow
  2. After a long, incredible year and a half journey, the Post Traumatic Tour comes to an end. Mike performs his final show of the tour in at the Wired Music Festival in Nagoya, Japan. Mike's last show in Manila featured what was perhaps the best setlist we've ever seen. Mike made it a challenge to include every album in his set. And he went above and beyond - not only including the main albums, but the remix albums, too. 'Keys To The Kingdom' made its live debut when Mike rapped the second verse of it over the extended bridge of 'Sorry For Now,' after he rapped verse one of 'Second To None' for the first time in twelve years. Verse 2 of 'Enth E Nd' was performed during 'In The End,' making it the first time since 2006 that the song had been performed. 'Numb/Encore' was featured as an intro to 'Numb,' striking the mark for Collision Course - Mike really went all out! 'Lift Off' featured 'High Voltage' and Mike's verse from the 'Skin To Bone' remix from Recharged, making it the first time since 2015 that the verse appeared. Things didn't let up in the encore, as Mike debuted a mashup of 'It's Goin' Down' and 'Step Up.' Now THAT'S a crazy show. Check out this pretty complete recording of the Manila show! As this show will be a festival set, we can expect it to be played pretty safe. Singles from Post Traumatic and classic live staples are sure to show up, and it'll be a little shorter set than usual. Mike plays a 75 minute set after King Gnu and is followed by headliner Wiz Khalifa. Is anyone going to the show? As this is the final Post Traumatic Tour show (for now), we don't know what comes next! But we'll catch ya back here when we do. The animated music video for 'World's On Fire' was just released, so be sure to check it out! Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news on Mike and Linkin Park.
  3. From the comments: "Sorry the clips are not in order. I ran out of storage during the concert. switching back and fort to 2 storage. lol i cannot recall the order tbh. didn't bother to check the setlist too" so I'll just assume Mike actually went by the setlist order. As for WJL at Jakarta, I'll add it to the show page.
  4. The Post Traumatic Tour is almost over, but not without a couple more shows! The last headlining show of the tour is taking place today, September 6, at the New Frontier Theater in Manila, Philippines. Mike's last show in Jakarta was nothing short of huge. With a whopping SIX tour debuts ('In Stereo,' 'Hold It Together,' 'Iridescent,' 'Lift Off,' 'Heavy,' and 'It's Goin' Down'), Mike proved that he has a lot up his sleeve left for the rest of the tour. On top of all the tour debuts, many set staples continued to rock the house: 'Castle Of Glass,' 'When They Come For Me,' 'Watching As I Fall,' and 'A Place For My Head' with Don Broco all returned for another show. 'Lift Off' featured verse one of 'Step Up' for the first time, making it the first time since London, England earlier this year that 'Step Up' has appeared in a set (being performed over the bridge of 'Sorry For Now'). 'Iridescent' also made a very rare appearance, being only the third time this year that it was played! There are surely a lot of surprises yet to be seen for this last headlining show, so let's see what happens! Watch a rare performance of 'Iridescent' from Mike's set in Jakarta, Indonesia on September 4, 2019. It's been awhile since Mike was last in the Philippines. The last time was in 2013, on the final leg of the Living Things World Tour. Linkin Park played a show in Pasay, bringing an epic set featuring a HUGE opening of 'A Place For My Head,' 'Papercut,' and 'Given Up.' This show was the first to feature 'Lying From You' in its full, original form in an encore. Typhoon Haiyan devastated the country a few months after the band performed there, leading to the guest-filled MFR Concert For The Philippines at the start of 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Linkin Park's first show in the Philippines was in 2004, on the Meteora World Tour. The set featured plenty of Meteora classics, such as 'From The Inside,' 'Don't Stay,' plus many Meteora-era live staples, such as the band's cover of Nine Inch Nails' 'Wish' and the 2004 Hip-Hop Medley featuring 'Step Up,' 'Nobody's Listening,' and 'It's Goin' Down' (funny enough, part of all three of those songs have been played on this short Asia Tour!). Watch this special fan-made compilation of Linkin Park's show in Pasay, Philippines in 2013. What can we expect from the set? Who knows! It's the final headlining show of the final leg of the Post Traumatic Tour (according to Mike). So, things could get crazy. It's unlikely we'll see a full live debut (though 'Nothing Makes Sense Anymore,' 'Brooding,' 'Promises I Can't Keep,' and 'Can't Hear You Now' haven't been performed yet...) but the tour debuts could be aplenty. We've yet to see plenty of Post Traumatic Tour staples, like 'Kenji,' 'Cigarettes,' 'Invisible,' 'Nobody Can Save Me,' and 'Prove Me Wrong.' Those are only a few examples - Mike has plenty more songs to pull from! Anything's fair game for this last show (since we can expect the festival performance in Japan to be relatively safe), so: bring it on, Shinoda. Who's going to the show? After this one, Mike has one final show to play on the Post Traumatic Tour in Nagoya, Japan at the Wired Music Festival on September 8. The animated music video for 'World's On Fire' was just released, so be sure to check it out! Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news on Mike and Linkin Park. Check out the rest of Mike's 2019 touring schedule here.
  5. After a few more month's work, the music video for 'World's On Fire' is finally here! Mike shared the following message about the video on social media: "I’ve never taken an animated project from beginning to end. This video, for ‘World’s On Fire,’ seemed to arrive in my head w/ a full story, setting, & characters all at once, & I couldn’t ignore it. Please enjoy it, & don’t forget to share it with friends" Mike originally announced the animated music video for 'World's On Fire' at the start of July, when a short preview of it was shown at the Crunchyroll Industry Panel for Anime Expo. Mike has ventured into animated media before ('Breaking The Habit,' for example), but this is the largest project of the sort he's undertaken in awhile! What do you think of the video? There's only one song on Post Traumatic (barring the bonus tracks) left to get a music video: 'Hold It Together.' We'll keep you updated on when that video is on its way. Mike's Post Traumatic Asia Tour continues tomorrow in Manilla, Philippines. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news on Mike and Linkin Park.
  6. The end of the Post Traumatic Tour is barrelling through with the second of four shows, the next being Mike's big return to Indonesia with a show in Jakarta at the Jakarta International Expo Kemayoran! Mike and the boys kicked off the tour in a big way in Taipei, Taiwan a few days ago, delivering a pretty safe but nonetheless powerful set. Mike and the band are sounding better than ever after a few months rest! 'Petrified' brought the show to an electrifying start, with 'Make It Up As I Go' and 'When They Come For Me' following suit. The set featured many Post Traumatic Tour staples, with Post Traumatic tracks like 'Ghosts' and 'World's On Fire' as well as many Linkin Park classics, such as 'Roads Untraveled' and even a piano version of 'Numb.' Like any Mike Shinoda set, however, there were plenty of surprises to be had. The first surprise came during the extended bridge of 'Sorry For Now,' where, after Dan's drum solo, Mike rapped verse one of the Meteora deep cut 'Nobody's Listening' - making it the second time Mike has performed the verse on tour (the first being earlier this year in Ludwigsburg, Germany) and the first time since Zurich, Switzerland that Mike rapped a verse over the bridge of the song. The next surprise was more so in the form of new information: before 'Castle Of Glass,' Mike revealed that the song was worked on pretty extensively as a demo during the A Thousand Suns sessions, but was held onto because the track didn't quite fit the album. He even gave LPLive a mention! 'Watching As I Fall' made a special appearance after being played on and off throughout the whole tour, and 'World's On Fire' was performed without 'Robot Boy' preceding it for the first time since the very end of the Outbreak Tour in Silver Springs, Maryland. One of the best moments of the show came in the form of a special appearance from Don Broco - the opening band on this leg of the tour and many prior legs before - during the LP favorite 'A Place For My Head,' closing the main set. Even if we didn't see any live debuts or tour debuts, Mike definitely treated fans in Taiwan to a great set! Check out this awesome performance of 'Sorry For Now' from Taipei, featuring a drum solo from Dan Mayo and a rare 'Nobody's Listening' verse! It's been about 8 years since Mike was last in Indonesia - towards the end of the A Thousand Suns tour in 2011. The set featured many ATS goodies such as 'The Requiem,' 'Iridescent,' and 'Blackout,' while also featuring plenty of classic LP tracks like 'Given Up' and 'Shadow Of The Day.' Prior to that, the band had only visited Indonesia once before: in 2004, on the Meteora World Tour. This show saw the band take a stand, as many artists were cancelling there shows in Indonesia at the time due to warnings from the United States government. Linkin Park continued to Indonesia, though, as at the time, the country stood as the band's biggest market in Asia. To ensure the safety of the fans leaving the show, the band started their show at 4:00pm. Watch Linkin Park perform 'Numb' live in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2011! Most of the time, the first show of the tour is pretty safe - which means the training wheels might be coming off in Jakarta. While it is a fairly short tour, Mike Shinoda is a very unpredictable man. Considering it's the end of the Post Traumatic Tour, this may be the last chance for these Post Traumatic songs to get their live debut: 'Nothing Makes Sense Anymore,' 'Brooding,' 'Promises I Can't Keep,' 'Can't Hear You Now,' and 'What The Worlds Meant' have all yet to make a proper debut. Other Post Traumatic songs, like 'Hold It Together,' 'I.O.U.,' and 'Lift Off' are also on the table (maybe even a very rare performance of 'Place To Start' is a possibility). There are endless Fort Minor and Linkin Park goodies that could be added to the sets, as well: 'Cigarettes,' 'Kenji,' 'Invisible,' and 'Nobody Can Save Me' are just a few of the options. Maybe we'll even finally see 'No Roads Left' appear in some format. Only time will tell! In the mean time, feel free to comment what songs you want to see Mike play in these last few shows! Who's going to the show? After this show, Mike has two more to go before wrapping up the Post Traumatic Tour for good - one headlining show in the Philippines and a festival appearance in Japan. In other news, Mike will be releasing the music video for 'World's On Fire' on September 5 - between this show and the next - so stay tuned for the premiere of the animated video! Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news on Mike and Linkin Park. Check out the rest of Mike's 2019 touring schedule here.
  7. First night of the tour is always pretty safe. Still a pretty solid show all around - WAIF, APFMH w/ DB, and a Nobody's Listening verse.
  8. Miss us? Miss the Post Traumatic Tour? Well, you're in luck - cause everyone's back for a few more shows! Mike Shinoda is kicking off the second Asian leg (and, allegedly, the final leg) of the Post Traumatic Tour in Taipei, Taiwan at the ATT Show Box on August 31, 2019. This leg of the Post Traumatic Tour is hitting a few Asian countries that Mike missed on the first Asian leg, which was the first full leg of the Post Traumatic Tour (we've really come full circle, huh?). The first on the list is Taiwan. The last time Mike was in Taiwan was in 2013, on the Living Things Asian Tour. This show featured one of the band's most hailed setlists - the Living Things Tour Set B. Opening with a massive 'A Place For My Head,' the band quickly launched into a high energy set with 'Papercut' and 'Given Up' following. Of course, many Living Things tracks were being played at the time: a full 'Lost In The Echo' featuring the extended intro that used the synth from the demo 'Holding Company,' a rare studio version of 'Castle Of Glass,' and even a mash-up of 'Victimized' and 'QWERTY.' Prior to the Living Things Tour, Linkin Park had visited Taipei three times. The first was on the Minutes To Midnight Tour in 2007, featuring a huge set with Minutes To Midnight bangers like 'No More Sorrow' and 'The Little Things Give You Away.' Fun fact: the night before the show, Linkin Park went into a studio in Taiwan to record their parts for their Busta Rhymes collaboration, 'We Made It.' After a cancelled performance there in 2008 (due to Chester sustaining a back injury), the band returned in 2009 for a make-up show while touring for 'New Divide.' They performed at the 2009 Summer Rock Fest, bringing a pretty special set with them. Opening with a rare 'Session,' the band continued with huge tracks, which came complete with many fan-favorite extensions, such as the AMBO Intro to 'What I've Done' and the extended intro and outro of 'Points Of Authority,' which featured a verse of 'Dedicated' (for the first time ever) and 'A Place For My Head,' respectively. The band returned two years later, in 2011 on the A Thousand Suns World Tour. This show featured a song ATS-era set, with big tracks like 'The Catalyst' and 'Blackout' making it an unforgettable performance. The intro of 'One Step Closer' was slightly extended at this show due to the band messing it up. In addition to performing there several times with Linkin Park, Mike performed with Fort Minor in Taipei, as well, opening for 50 Cent. The most notable moment from this show was the live debut of 'Cigarettes,' Mike rapping the first verse a cappella style for the crowd. The song received its full live debut years later, when Mike began performing the iconic 2015 Version during the Fort Minor comeback. Perhaps that's one of the song's we'll see performed for this show - from live debut to the new remix. Only in Taiwan. Speaking of the sets, we all know how it works these days. And that is to say, we have literally no idea what Mike's going to play. Drummer Dan Mayo and multi-instrumentalist Matt Harris are returning to perform these last couple of shows with Mike, and we're glad to see them back! Matt was seen rehearsing 'Nobody Can Save Me' on his Instagram story, so it's definitely likely we see that song performed sometime on the tour. The end of the Post Traumatic Tour left us with a multitude of potential opening songs, as well as a wild amount of rotations in the meat of the set. There are more opening songs than there are shows on this tour, which may potentially lead to some fun sets every night: the options are 'Welcome,' 'Petrified,' 'World's On Fire' (with 'Robot Boy' preceding it), 'Remember The Name,' and 'When They Come For Me.' Expect to hear plenty of Post Traumatic songs in the mix as well - and perhaps be on the look out for some live debuts! A few tracks have yet to be performed live from the album: 'Nothing Makes Sense Anymore,' 'Brooding,' 'Promises I Can't Keep,' 'Can't Hear You Now' (in full), and 'What The Words Meant' are all still due for a live debut. This tour may be the last chance for them to see a debut - and with how special these few shows are going to be, it's certainly not out of the question. There are countless other songs we'll probably hear at some point on the tour, as well: 'Sorry For Now,' 'Roads Untraveled,' 'In Stereo,' and 'Kenji' are just some of the awesome tracks Mike played throughout the tour. What songs do you want to hear on this tour? Opening for Mike at all the headlining dates are a band we're all familiar with at this point: Don Broco. The English boys are back to open for Mike yet again after playing with him throughout the United States and Europe. Linkin Park fans have grown to love them since they began performing with Mike - and it's no mystery why. The guys put on an eclectic show, with loads of energy and a certain sense of gratitude to make it a perfect show. Fans can expect to hear songs like 'Come Out To LA,' 'Everybody,' and 'T-Shirt Song,' and perhaps even hear some of the band's newer tracks, like single 'Half Man Half God.' Don Broco also has a history of joining Mike onstage for a particular jam. You might have heard of it. It's called 'A Place For My Head.' There's a GREAT chance we see Mike perform 'A Place For My Head' with Don Broco on this tour at least once, so if you're going to one of these shows, get ready to explode. Who's going to the show? As always, we'll be providing live coverage of the shows on our social media, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news. After Taipei, Mike continues into Asia with three more shows: he'll be stopping in Jakarta and Manila before wrapping things up with a festival performance at the Wired Music Festival in Nagoya, Japan. It'll be a nice change of pace to have shows to cover again while we all await what's next for either Mike OR Linkin Park. Only time will tell, but for right now, we're ready to jam. Check out the rest of Mike's 2019 touring schedule here.
  9. After a pretty long radio silence about upcoming music videos, Mike has announced that the next video will be for ‘World’s On Fire,’ and it will be animated, too! The music video will premiere this Saturday, July 6 at the Crunchyroll Industry Panel for Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California. For those who can’t be there, the event is being livestreamed here - the music video will play around 2:30 PST on Saturday. EDIT: Mike confirms the video will be released on September 5th! Mike shared the following sketch from the music video on his social media. Who’s excited for the next music video? Back at the start of the Post Traumatic cycle, Mike said he’d release a music video for every single song. With ‘World’s On Fire’ joining the fray, that leaves ‘Hold It Together’ as the only song without a music video yet (not including bonus tracks ‘Prove You Wrong‘ and ‘What The Words Meant‘). Mike filmed at least one music video on this year’s European Tour back in March, so perhaps we’ll see the video for ‘Hold It Together’ sooner rather than later. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page for the latest news, and follow our Instagram for loads of awesome Linkin Park content. While the rest of the summer currently seems to be quiet, Mike will resume the Post Traumatic Tour in September with another round of dates in Asia.
  10. Both the Meteora and the Hybrid Theory Instrumentals came from Promo CDs. No one hears them because they're really not for the public to hear - they're mostly sent to radio stations and what not for promotional use.
  11. One of the first three songs I ever truly liked. My aunt would play it in the car when I was 7 (she'd always play LP when I was a kid, but WID is the first song I remembered by name), and the rest is history I guess. A timeless classic, for sure.
  12. This is it, everyone. The end of the Post Traumatic Tour is here, and it's going out in a big way. Mike, Matt, Dan, and the rest of the crew will hit the stage tonight in Tel Aviv, Israel for the first of two nights at Hangar 11. It's been awhile since Mike was last in Israel. Up until this performance, Mike's only other show in Israel was in 2011, on the brief A Thousand Suns Middle Eastern Tour. That show was at the start of the A Thousand Suns cycle, and featured many new tracks including 'Wretches and Kings' and 'Iridescent.' It's a great show all around, and is well known for its performance of 'The Messenger,' where Chester sang part of Bob Marley's 'No Woman No Cry.' These next two shows will undoubtedly be incredibly special, as well. Mike ended the last European leg of the Post Traumatic Tour in Luxembourg two nights ago, and he certainly ended that tour with a bang! While there were no huge surprises, fans who made it out to the show were treated to plenty of awesome treats: 'Kenji' and 'It's Goin' Down' (with its new chorus) both made an appearance, while staples like 'Prove You Wrong' and 'Nobody Can Save Me' returned. 'Lift Off' featured the chorus of 'Step Up,' the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage,' and verse two of 'Hands Held High.' Dan also performed his drum solo during the song. The encore opened with the surprising combination of 'Robot Boy' and 'Hold It Together' - a pairing not seen before on the tour. The rig they're using in Israel has different gear and is slightly different - whether or not these setlists in Tel Aviv will be played safe or go absolutely crazy is yet to be seen. Who's going to the show? If you see our Israeli staff member Skipees, let us know! Please! It's been a minute. Tomorrow's show at the same venue will be the official conclusion of the Post Traumatic Tour (according to Mike), and the last show we may have for quite some time. Before the Post Traumatic era ends, however, Mike still has some music videos to deliver: he filmed one in Prague and another after 'Running From My Shadow' in Luxembourg.

  13. The Post Traumatic Tour is coming to an end, but not without a few more action packed shows! Mike and co. are hitting the stage in Prague, Czech Republic today at the Forum Karlin for their next stop on their European Tour. Mike has played in Prague several times before. Their first show there was at the end of 2003 on the Meteora European Tour, a rescheduled show from earlier in the year which was cancelled after Chester was hospitalized for severe back pain. Fun fact: during that same year, Linkin Park went to Prague to film the music videos for both 'From The Inside' and 'Numb!' The band returned in 2007 on the first Minutes To Midnight European Tour, playing new tracks like 'Leave Out All The Rest' and 'The Little Things Give You Away.' Mike's most recent performance in Prague was at the Aerodrome Festival in 2017 on the One More Light European Tour. The set featured some of the tour's best moments, like the 'Fallout' and 'Roads Untraveled' mashup intro, as well as the Experience Version of 'Castle Of Glass,' which featured 'A Place For My Head' over the outro. Linkin Park certainly left Prague wanting more, and Mike's back to deliver. Mike's last show was in Munich, and it was a show full of surprises. Opening with 'Introduction' and 'Petrified,' Mike started the set energetically with a handful of hip-hop hard-hitters (also including 'Hold It Together' and 'When They Come For Me'). The set continued mellowy, with numbers like 'Prove You Wrong' and 'Nobody Can Save Me' adding a bit of a bittersweet tone during the middle of the set. The biggest surprise of the night: the tour debut of 'Lift Off!' The song was performed for the 2nd time ever, and for the first time since it debuted at the last show of the Outbreak Tour in Silver Springs, Maryland. This live version featured a completely different structure than last time, featuring the demo verse and parts of 'Step Up' and 'High Voltage.' 'Place To Start' is the only Post Traumatic track that Mike has performed before and hasn't played on the tour yet, now. 'Brooding,' 'Promises I Can't Keep,' 'Nothing Makes Sense Anymore,' a full 'Can't Hear You Now,' and 'What The Words Meant' have all yet to be performed, but their chances are looking slimmer by the show. Do you think we'll see any of these songs debuted before the tour concludes? Who's going to the show? LPLive staff member Mark (Hahninator) is there, so be sure to say hey if you see him! The tour is winding up, with only a few shows left in Amsterdam, Ludwigsburg, and Luxembourg before Mike wraps up the whole cycle with two shows in Tel Aviv, Israel.

  14. The final tour of the Post Traumatic era is reaching its end, but not without a final few awesome shows! Mike and the gang return to Germany today for their sixth German show of the tour at the Zenith - Die Kulturhalle in Munich. Mike has played in Munich many times before, the first being in 2001 on the Deftones' 'Back To School' Tour - this was Linkin Park's second performance in the country ever! Classics like 'With You' and 'By Myself' added an explosive dynamic to the set. The crowd was so wild, the band returned again for their own headlining show later in the year on the Hybrid Theory European Tour, at the same venue Mike's performing at today. The band returned seven years later, during the summer of 2008 on the final Minutes To Midnight European Tour. This set was part of Projekt Revolution: Europe and was - up until Milton Keynes a few shows later - the biggest Projekt Revolution show ever. And the setlist definitely celebrated the occasion: huge tracks like the ultra-rare 'Reading My Eyes' were performed in their entirety, as well as new versions of familiar tracks: 'Wake 2.0.' Softer ballads like the piano version of 'Pushing Me Away' and 'The Little Things Give You Away' added reprieve from all the action within the set. The band returned to Munich for another Projekt Revolution: Europe show in 2011 on the A Thousand Suns European Tour, bringing new hits like 'Waiting For The End' and 'The Catalyst' and big jams like 'Lying From You' and 'No More Sorrow' out. At the beginning of 'When They Come For Me,' Mike messed up a the sample settings and played piano sounds instead of the normal ones, but ended up making a little remix at the start of the track! Brad did something different on the megaphone than he normal does, too. Mike's most recent visit to Munich was in 2014 on The Hunting Party European Tour, which brought huge tracks like 'Guilty All The Same' and 'Rebellion' to a massive crowd. Last night's show in Zurich was one for the record books, too. The show had surprises from the very start: 'When They Come For Me' opened the show for the first time on this leg of the tour, with a looped extended intro for the first time. A funnier part of the show includes the intro to 'Ghosts,' after the crowd did a "More Cowbell" flashmob. Mike found a cowbell onstage and hit it as the song started up. Mike continued early on with surprises by performing 'High Road,' promising to mess up the spreadsheet we retweeted that day that keeps track of what Mike's playing this tour. That wasn't the only thing that messed with the spreadsheet: 'Kenji' returned in full form, being played for the first time since Los Angeles last year on the Outbreak Tour. 'Nobody Can Save Me' was played once again before 'Sorry For Now,' which had an extended bridge featuring the demo verse of 'Lift Off' and a chorus of 'Step Up.' Mike played a piano version of 'Heavy,' aborted it, and quickly switched to 'Numb.' 'World's On Fire' was added back into the set after not being planned on the written setlist after 'Robot Boy' opened the encore. This is interesting, as an unseen combo of 'Robot Boy' into 'Castle Of Glass' has not been seen yet. There's lots of little details in this set that makes it such a memorable one, plus with big rarities in the mix, you can't complain! Mike remarked about not being ready to play 'Invisible' (likely because they haven't rehearsed it yet at soundcheck), but Dan said he was - so perhaps we can expect it at tonight's show. Who's going to the show? Hahninator will be there - keep an eye out for him and say hi! The tour's winding up, with four show in Europe left before Mike ends things off with two shows in Tel Aviv, Israel. Prague, Amsterdam, Ludwigsburg, and Luxembourg are still up before then.

  15. Mike Shinoda is continuing through Europe on the final leg of the Post Traumatic Tour, stopping today in Zurich, Switzerland for a show at Halle 622. Mike has played in Zurich a handful of times before this. The first was in 2007, on Linkin Park's Minutes To Midnight European Tour, featuring fresh cuts from the new album including 'What I've Done' and 'Given Up.' This show had the famous extended bridge to 'Bleed It Out' where Mike and Chester split the crowd and had each side chant "Fuck yo side!" The band returned in 2009 while promoting 'New Divide' on their International Tour that year, before returning in 2010 on the first leg of the A Thousand Suns World Tour. Mike's last performance in Zurich was in 2014, where a show there opened The Hunting Party European Tour. The tour just got wild. The last show in Padova was packed full of surprises that no one expected. The show opened in a big way with 'Welcome' and 'Hold It Together' kicking things off, with more hip-hop tracks like 'Remember The Name' and 'When They Come For Me' following. The first surprise of the night: 'Nobody Can Save Me' returning for the first time since London, officially putting it in rotation. The extended bridge of 'Sorry For Now' featured both the first verse and chorus of 'Dedicated' (making it the first time since 2009 in Macao that the song was performed during a set) as well as a verse of 'Lift Off.' Mike briefly rapped the first verse of 'Can't Hear You Now' acapella style, making it the song's live debut. In response to the crisis going on in New Zealand, Mike performed verse two of 'Hands Held High' before 'In The End.' The encore opened with a triple tour debut: a brief piano version of 'The Catalyst' was performed for the very first time, while 'Wisdom, Justice, and Love' and 'Iridescent' were both performed for the first time since the Outbreak Tour. Quite an action packed show indeed - and a surprising one at that. Anything could be coming, Switzerland. Who's going to the show? The tour is slowly reaching its end, but not before stopping in Munchen, Prague, and Amsterdam over the next few days. LPLive staff member Mark (Hahninator) will be at this show and several of them coming up - if you see him, be sure to say hi!
