    2019.03.08 - Hamburg, Germany

    Mike sure loves Germany it seems. Show #5 of the Post Traumatic European Tour just so happens to also be show #5 in Germany of the Post Traumatic European Tour. Hamburg, you're up! The tour has been pretty wild so far. The last show in Oberhausen had one of the strongest starts we've seen yet with a run of 'Welcome', 'In Stereo', 'Hold It Together' (with its new extended outro), and 'When They Come For Me'. The fun didn't stop there as Mike rapped the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage' over the bridge of 'Sorry For Now' and we saw FOUR tour debuts: the piano version of 'Numb', the fantastic duo of 'Robot Boy' and 'World's On Fire', and the ever elusive 'High Road' which was the second time that song had been performed in 35 shows. Don Broco also joined Mike to close out the show with 'A Place For My Head'. Mike is no stranger to Hamburg, and it hasn't been too long since he's been there. The promo tour for One More Light took him and Chester there for two of the stripped down performances where the two of them would play piano versions of new songs like 'Heavy' and 'Battle Symphony' alongside classics like 'Crawling'. Prior to that, Linkin Park had played in Hamburg in 2014, twice during the A Thousands Suns tour (the latter of which was the site of the 4th LPU summit where the iconic cover of Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep' made its debut), 2007, 2003, and 3(!) times in 2001 (the first of which was also the band's first show in Germany). Mike also took the Fort Minor tour to the city in 2005. We still have yet to really nail down what Mike is gonna play on any given night, but what we do know is that he's gonna be joined by Yvonne Catterfield tonight for a song. Don Broco is also opening for Mike again, so we could see another performance of 'A Place For My Head'. On top of that, there's a few songs Mike's already played that we haven't seen on this tour yet, namely Post Traumatic tracks 'Place To Start', 'Lift Off', and 'Watching As I Fall'. The latter was soundchecked a few shows ago, so we may see that one sooner rather than later. There's also the rarer songs from the US tour like 'Kenji' and 'Cigarettes' in his arsenal. Anything is possible at this point. Who's going to the show? After this, Mike finally visits the rest of Europe with shows in Paris, London, and Budapest.

    The 5 levels of Soldiers

    My biggest issue with Primo is that there's no way it would work on Living Things (sonically it fits better on ATS, but not so much thematically). It'd be such a jarring sonic and tonal shift. That's not to say IBG is better than Primo (they're both doing very different things and do their own respective things very well), but as far as putting together an album, IBG is a better choice than Primo

    Review: "Cross Off" - Mark Morton featuring Chester

    I don't see how anyone can say OML isn't a pop album. Pop is a pretty wide spectrum and it isn't an inherently negative term. I could see an argument for calling ATS and LT rock to an extent (not traditional rock, but some sub genre or something), but OML is 100% a pop album.

    "Looking for an Answer" (Brand New Song)

    If Mike's solo tour has proved one thing, it's that the band really doesn't need a new vocalist to take Chester's place. Mike is a more than capable frontman and he's clearly shown he is able to handle enough LP songs to fill out a setlist, and that's including the usual "safe" singles like ITE, Heavy etc. Yeah, OSC is probably gonna be retired, but the band had been steadily reducing the importance of OSC in the set since 2014 (them moving it from basically always closing or opening to just a mid-set song, to me, was them saying it's not a cornerstone of the set anymore). And what other songs had they been performing regularly would really be at risk outside of that one song?

    Review: Mike Shinoda's New PT Vinyl Tracks

    Mike has said quite a few times that Post Traumatic was his journey out of the darkness, so putting a huge focus on his immediate grief surrounding Chester would sort of conflict with that. The first few songs on the album are about that grief (namely the EP songs and NMSA), but most of the album was meant to be him trying to find ways to move forward and make something out of a tragedy.

    Review: Mike Shinoda's New PT Vinyl Tracks

    Yeah and anyone who thought he was grieving for anything other than his friend is so out of touch it's astounding

    2018.12.08 - ALT 103.5's Not So Silent Night

    The run of holiday shows continue tonight in San Jose, California with ALT 103.5's Not So Silent Night. Mike tends to play it pretty safe with festival shows, but he still makes sure to bring the energy. Despite a few hiccups, he gave his all at the festival show in Brooklyn the other day, with staples like 'Running From My Shadow' and the medley of 'About You', 'Over Again', 'Papercut' continuing to explode on the stage. Check out Mike, Matt, and Dan performing the always fun 'About You', 'Over Again', and 'Papercut'. The live instruments on 'About You' really give that song a new life! It's been a minute since Mike has been to San Jose. Linkin Park was scheduled to play the city in 2017 on the One More Light North American Tour, but that was canceled for understandable reasons. Prior to that, Mike hadn't been there since 2011 on the A Thousand Suns North American Tour which featured an intense encore starting with a run of 'Empty Spaces', 'When They Come For Me', and 'Papercut', as well as a surprise singalong version of 'Iridescent' and an impromptu rendition of 'The Messenger' due to Mike's keyboard breaking after the Oppenheimer outro of 'Numb'. Before that, the band hadn't played San Jose since 2004 during the Meteora cycle. We unfortunately still don't have the setlist for that show, so if you have any info on it, feel free to send it our way! Linkin Park made two stops in the city back in 2001 as well, the latter of which was a festival show (not unlike tonight) and had the rather rare 'My December' and 'Step Up' and the even rarer cover of 'Sweet Child O' Mine'. Watch Linkin Park perform a completely impromptu 'The Messenger' in 2011 due to technical difficulties. Mike is performing pretty early tonight on a stacked lineup and is slotted for around 30 minutes, much like Brooklyn, so we probably shouldn't be expecting any surprises. What we wouldn't be too surprised to see, though, is a different intro song and a slightly reordered set. 'Remember The Name' opened Brooklyn, so could we see one of the other Fort Minor singles ('Petrified' or 'Welcome') opening tonight? Is anyone going tonight? After this, Mike is doing one last stop at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas (where he and Linkin Park have quite a long history) before taking a much deserved break for the holidays. He'll pick back up next year in Europe, though! We'll keep you updated on everything that happens at this show and on the rest of the tour, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates, and feel free to join the LPL Discord Server, where you can talk to fans from all around the world.
