Show Notes:

- Linkin Park did not rehearse at Third Encore as usual for this tour, so they performed a rare soundcheck before this show. The soundcheck included 'Given Up' and 'Remember The Name', amongst (unknown) others.

- Due to the Chinese government's censorship laws, the band was forced to censor 'Given Up', 'Remember The Name', 'Welcome', and 'Bleed It Out'. On 'Given Up', Chester just skipped "fuck". On 'Remember The Name', Mike changed "motherfuckers" to "other fellas". On 'Welcome', Mike just skipped the "fuckers" part of "motherfuckers". On 'Bleed It Out', Mike didn't rap the entire line of "going out of my fucking mind" and let the crowd sing it instead.

- On the transition outro of 'Runaway', Mike rapped verse one of 'Wastelands'. Chester sang the first line of the bridge over the outro transition.

- Despite appearing on the physical copy of the setlist, positioned as the opener of the encore, 'Crawling' was dropped for an unknown reason. The song was performed as the opener of the encore at both Mexico shows in June. However, it disappeared from the setlist completely after this show.

- During the bridge of 'Bleed It Out', Chester conducted a sing-a-long with the crowd.

Other Notes:

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

- This was Linkin Park's first show in China in six years, since Shanghai in fall 2009.

- The band had to submit a list of songs to the Chinese communist government to be "pre-approved" for the setlist. Included were all songs played on the world tour for The Hunting Party up to this point, even those not in the current setlist. 42 songs total were listed, including 'A Place For My Head', 'Somewhere I Belong', 'A Light That Never Comes', 'With You' and 'Blackout'. 'Keys To The Kingdom', which has not received its live debut yet, was also on the list.

- There was no LPU Meet & Greet at this show. The Chinese Tour did not have the customary M&Gs, which made it the first tour in LP's band history to not have them since the inception of the LPU. Mercedes Benz (tour sponsor), however, held M&Gs before the shows for their own car buyers, etc to meet the band. Instead, two LPU Meetups events were held in Shenzhen and Shanghai. Despite the band not being confirmed to attend, they showed up and fans were allowed to take a group picture with Linkin Park but not get any autographs. Even at these LPU Meetups events, the Mercedes Benz people went first to meet the band.

- There was no opening band for the China Tour.
