    - At the time, Music For Relief would auction off a pair of M&G passes for the band each show via an online eBay auction, which usually went for a significant amount of money. In the case of this show, Music For Relief posted eBay auctions for most shows on the band's European Tour in June 2008 all at once. This show in Istanbul was listed at Kuruçesme Arena. However, once we reported on the show, the auction was removed and a show in Mannheim, Germany for the same day was added at a later date. Linkin Park ended up later kicking off their 2009 Summer Tour in Istanbul, but at Istanbul Park.

    - Mike rapped verse one of 'Petrified' over the intro of 'Points Of Authority'.

    - Before 'Reading My Eyes', Mike said, "We're not in the habit of introducing our songs. Do you want to introduce the next song?". Chester replied, "This song is so old, that when it was written, I wasn't even in the band!".

    - On the first verse of 'Reading My Eyes', Chester went to the side of the stage and kissed his wife. On the second verse, he went back again and kissed her and danced with her as well.

    - Chester sang the chorus to 'Reading My Eyes' in a lower pitch like he did earlier in the tour in Vilnius, Lithuania.

    - The band thanked the crowd a lot, with Chester saying "We couldn't ask for a better audience at our first concert here. We have the best fucking fans!"

    - Fans that met Linkin Park through a competition, backstage, gave the band a Greek flag and Mike put it on his keyboard during the show.

    - The band dedicated 'Bleed It Out' to the touring crew.

    - This was Linkin Park's first show in Greece.

    - This show was announced on October 3, 2008, just three days beforehand. A press release on the Verizon Wireless website read: "LAS VEGAS, NV — The University of Nevada Las Vegas has won the Verizon Wireless “Remix2Win with Linkin Park” national contest thanks to Valerie Cossio, Class of 2009, who submitted the winning remix. Cossio’s prize, as a representative of UNLV, is a private Linkin Park concert for 2,000 of her fellow Rebels. The concert will be held at The Joint in Las Vegas on Oct. 6, 2008, and those who attend will also hear Cossio’s winning remixes of Linkin Park’s hit songs “Crawling” and “In the End.”"

    - On October 6, 2008, Verizon Wireless released another press release about the show saying, "LAS VEGAS, NV — Following a statement issued by Linkin Park regarding the cancellation of tonight’s concert for UNLV due to the injury of lead singer Chester Bennington, Verizon Wireless’ Ed Ruth, director of digital music for Verizon, said the following: “Verizon Wireless congratulates the University of Nevada Las Vegas and Valerie Cossio for winning the ‘Remix2Win with Linkin Park’ national contest. We sincerely regret that tonight’s concert has been cancelled due to these unforeseen circumstances. Verizon Wireless will be in contact with the University and Valerie as soon as more information is available about the band’s health and schedule.”" The official announcement by Linkin Park read: "Los Angeles, CA (October 6, 2008) - Linkin Park has been forced to cancel tonight's concert at the The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, as lead vocalist Chester Bennington has sustained a back injury and is under doctor's orders to rest. Linkin Park sincerely regrets this unavoidable cancellation and apologizes to fans for any disappointment caused." Mike posted this on his blog: "FROM MIKE: We're bummed...Chester hurt his back, and is in quite a bit of pain. Please think good thoughts for our friend."

    - Instead of rescheduling the show, the band flew Valerie to Europe to see them perform on July 21, 2009 in Athens, Greece along with giving her a M&G pass.

    - The day after this show was supposed to take place, the band canceled their Asia Tour.

    - On October 7, 2008, the band posted the following statement on linkinpark.com: "Linkin Park has been forced to cancel their upcoming Music For Relief Concerts in Mainland China, Macau and Taipei as lead vocalist Chester Bennington has sustained a back injury and is under doctor's orders to refrain from traveling or any physical activities. Linkin Park sincerely regrets this unavoidable cancellation and apologizes to fans for any disappointment caused. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

     

    The concerts were organized as fundraisers to benefit Sichuan, an area ravaged by a devastating earthquake this past May. However, thanks to generous donations from concert promoter Emma Ticketmaster and Linkin Park, funds will still be contributed to the band's nonprofit organization, Music for Relief, and matched by the World Bank. These funds will benefit post-earthquake reconstruction projects in the Sichuan Province initiated by Chinese Civil Society Organizations.

     

    The cancelled shows are as follows:

    Oct. 12 - Shanghai, China - Shanghai Stadium

    Oct. 15 - Wuhan, China - Xinhua Stadium

    Oct. 17 - Taipei, Taiwan - Taipei Soccer Stadium

    Oct. 19 - Beijing, China - Beijing Workers Stadium

    Oct. 21 - Macau, China Cotai Arena - The Venetian"

    - This show was made up at the same venue on August 15, 2009.

    - The opening band for this show, Mayday, was scheduled to be a "co-headliner" with a 90 minute set, the same length as Linkin Park. Mayday was also playing the Beijing show with the band.

    - On October 7, 2008, the band posted the following statement on linkinpark.com: "Linkin Park has been forced to cancel their upcoming Music For Relief Concerts in Mainland China, Macau and Taipei as lead vocalist Chester Bennington has sustained a back injury and is under doctor's orders to refrain from traveling or any physical activities. Linkin Park sincerely regrets this unavoidable cancellation and apologizes to fans for any disappointment caused. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

     

    The concerts were organized as fundraisers to benefit Sichuan, an area ravaged by a devastating earthquake this past May. However, thanks to generous donations from concert promoter Emma Ticketmaster and Linkin Park, funds will still be contributed to the band's nonprofit organization, Music for Relief, and matched by the World Bank. These funds will benefit post-earthquake reconstruction projects in the Sichuan Province initiated by Chinese Civil Society Organizations.

     

    The cancelled shows are as follows:

    Oct. 12 - Shanghai, China - Shanghai Stadium

    Oct. 15 - Wuhan, China - Xinhua Stadium

    Oct. 17 - Taipei, Taiwan - Taipei Soccer Stadium

    Oct. 19 - Beijing, China - Beijing Workers Stadium

    Oct. 21 - Macau, China Cotai Arena - The Venetian"

    - This show was made up on August 13, 2009 when the band played Taipei's Country Stadium for the 2009 Summer Rock Summit.
