  1. I'd expect another 2-3 shows in Asia to be announced yet. Malaysia, Hong Kong, probably another Japan show (Tokyo). Maybe mainland China too but I wouldn't be so sure there. Can't imagine he won't do an Australia leg after this either.
  2. Drinking game: Take a shot every time Geki baselessly blames Warner for something.
  3. LPU5 mix tried waaaaaay too hard to emphasize how big the crowd was. It comes off like there's just a constant drone of background noise during the entire thing and it totally blurs the separation of the instruments in a really unpleasant way.
  4. This show page in the Julien-K section is broken: https://lplive.net/shows/julienk0809/20080116J
  5. I've been under the impression for 15 years that the audio is just from Worcester. It matches up as far as I can tell. The video is from multiple shows. Clothes change from shot to shot, etc.
  6. The "you fucking faggots" at Mountain View from the same tour was a lot more cringeworthy in hindsight. Chester was probably about at his peak of being drunk and/or high all the time towards the end of the Meteora era and his filter was just non-existent. The "I found O.J.'s gloves" at Rock Am Ring, the "I've never been fisted before, that was awesome" at Cuyahoga Falls (which I so desperately wish there was a recording of, lol), he was really saying a lot of off-the-wall stuff during that period that definitely would have been put under a microscope if Youtube/social media would have been prevalent at the time.
  7. As far as song info goes, this is mostly conjecture/connecting-the-dots type stuff, but I can offer the following: -At least some of the guitar on this song is in drop C tuning, which is completely out of character for anything Mike and/or Brad would have been doing in 2016. -Chester's definitely not on the song, but a lot of the higher background vocals don't really sound like Mike. -Brian Howes, the previously-mentioned writer of the song, was the lead singer/guitarist of the band Closure years ago, they had a somewhat successful single in "Look Out Below" back in 2003: Putting all that together, my assumption is that Brian is playing at least some of the guitar and singing background vocals on the recording. Also, the second to last line of the chorus should be "unless you've got your word," not "unless you've got your worth." I haven't seen anyone get that right. The first line of the song might also be "day, night" instead of "daylight," I'm not totally sure.
  8. https://lplive.net/shows/mikeshinoda19/20190325 The first of Mike's two Tel Aviv shows is completely gone (both the show page and the entry on the 2019 tour dates page).
  9. For this to be fake, it would require the person creating it to: -Sound EXACTLY like Mike (if you don't think this sounds like him I'm convinced you've never heard him sing, like, ever) -Remember that this was a song title that was pretty much only ever talked about on LPL, for what seemed like 5 minutes, nearly 3 years ago (also after the recent LPL redesign none of the old links work, so good luck even FINDING that information in the first place unless you know exactly where to look) -Have both the skill to create music on par with the production values of One More Light, and access to the equipment necessary to create it (meaning it would have to be some professional-level musician/producer with a significant amount of money, booking time in a real studio...to make a fake Linkin Park track?) It's real and the idea that there's even a 0.1% chance that it isn't is asinine. I'm also wondering if Mike recycled the chord progression from this song when he came up with Heavy.
  10. The LPLive - setlist.fm relationship, in a nutshell: 1. LPLive posts setlists/tourdates from verified sources 2. setlist.fm copies LPLive's setlist/tourdate info 3. Someone on setlist.fm copy-pastes a setlist from one show on a tour onto another show page from the same tour that doesn't have a setlist posted 4. People cite setlist.fm as a source when posting new info to LPLive For a lot of bands, setlist.fm is a definitive source. For LP, that isn't the case. LPLive influences setlist.fm a lot more than they influence LPLive.
  11. "Lames' heads hang like I'm draining their battery"
  12. I'm fairly sure the band used pre-recorded instrumental tracks for the MTV Japan performance in 2012. If you look at about 0:45 here you'll see that Jeremy isn't playing anything on guitar but Brad's normal verse guitar part is clearly audible, and the vocals sync up so it's not just a case of them using an out-of-sync shot on the broadcast: If this is true, it would mean that Jeremy was literally just a "stand in" for Brad, because the Burn it Down performance the day before used a pre-recorded backing track as well.
  13. The album was mixed by four different people (including four songs mixed by Mike), and Basecamp also co-produced About You, so I'm not sure what your reasoning for saying that is.
  14. The picture of Mike on video chat with Kai is photoshopped from this Instagram live video (it's literally just a mirror-flipped version of the video thumbnail): Kai's as big of a troll as I've ever seen. I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't the only fake feature he's used to promote himself.
