Another episode of LPTV has been uploaded to the Linkin Park YouTube channel. This episode documents the end of The Carnivores Tour from their stop in San Diego, Wheatland and the very end in Concord, CA. We get some nice piano playing from Mike, some great air shots of the venue and as always some nice footage of the band on stage. Check it out here below.


Oh, and coconut throwing by Brad. We also get coconut throwing by Brad.

This was the last of the episodes from The Carnivores Tour, and it came just in time before Linkin Park heads to Europe to begin their European tour.

What did you think of the episode? Who DID prepare that coconut? Come and discuss in our forums.

Unusual as it may seem, Linkin Park, in collaboration with Stars of the Season, have filmed a new video for the fourth single off of A Thousand Suns, "Iridescent." Chester has been a long time supporter of the Stars of the Season, and Linkin Park recently performed at the annual Stars of the Season fundraising soire. A few pictures were posted on Instagram by Dave Kinsler and Jack Chapman showing Chester performing. The new video, which is written and directed by Jack Chapman, is supposed to arrive "very soon."

Update: Video has now been released and you can check it out below.

Benefit show! Tonight Linkin Park performs in Arizona, at the Stars of the Season Gala. Linkin Park has never performed at this benefit show before, but Chester has. Three times. With three different bands. In 2011 he performed here with Dead By Sunrise with all the members that were currently in the band. This was also their last performance to date labelled as "Dead By Sunrise" In 2012 he performed "solo" and covered a bunch of big and famous songs, such as "Wonderwall" and "Like A Rolling Stone". Finally, in 2013 he performed here as part of Stone Temple Pilots. Apparently, footage from any of these performances do not exist. Can't get them all.

Yesterday the band performed a full show at the Guitar Center 50th Anniversary. They played Set A and Brad was back to performing with the band, recovered from his ear infection and rocking the show. The performance was recorded and will be broadcasted on December 5th on DIRECTV’s Audience Network.

For this show, it's expected that the band play a shorter set. Will it be same short set like the Red Bull performance? Or the same one they played at iHeartRadio? We will have to wait and see.

What the event website has to say:
Grammy Award-winning rock band Linkin Park will headline the 5th annual Stars of the Season fundraising soire for Banner Children’s at Cardon Children’s Medical Center on Saturday, Oct. 25.

On the heels of the band’s sixth studio album release, "The Hunting Party," and the North American The Carnivores Tour, Linkin Park will deliver a special performance for Stars of the Season guests to raise funds for pediatric oncology and establish integrative cancer care at Cardon Children’s Medical Center.

Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has been involved with Stars of the Season since its debut in 2010 and leveraged his industry influence to secure Linkin Park, yet another multi-platinum band performing in support of pediatric health care.
There is a nasty trend of video not being recorded at these performances, but hopefully someone records just one song from the performance.

After this performance, the band takes a week off before heading to Zurich to start off their European tour!

Full European Tour Schedule:

Nov. 3 - Zurich, Switzerland @ Hallenstadion |
Nov. 4 - Stuttgart, Germany @ Schleyerhalle |
Nov. 6 - Cologne, Germany @ Lanxess Arena |

Linkin Park returns to The Wiltern!

Tomorrow Linkin Park will be playing at The Wiltern! Linkin Park played here twice in 2003 for back-to-back shows for the release of Meteora. This was the end of the LP Underground Tour, a tour that the band only did in 2003 but have been in high demand from fans to bring back. At both these performances the band was joined on stage by Blindside singer Christian Lindskog on One Step Closer, Blindside would join Linkin Park later that summer on the Summer Sanitarium tour and then later in 2007 when they opened for the band at some European dates. Check out this LPTV episode detailing the LP Underground Tour and these Meteora release shows.


"-Insert Witty Comment or Joke About Meteora Here...-"

Just a few days the band played a two stop tour in Brazil. The special thing about this was that it was the only tour that a band member had to sit out 100% of a tour. I've already gone through all the details in this post so I'll keep this short, Brad had another ear infection and couldn't fly. The same reason two 2008 dates had to be cancelled.

The second show on the tour went off smoother than the first one, where the show was plauged by equipment malfunctions and screwups by the band.
On Castle of Glass the band added on the Martin Luther King, Jr speech from Wisdom, Justice, Love and added a piano outro where the Oppenheimer speech from The Radience was added on. You can check that out here below.


Thanks to whomever recorded this.

The show tonight will be taped and broadcasted exclusively on DIRECTV’s Audience Network on December 5th as part of Guitar Center Sessions. We do at this point now know if it will be a full set or a shorter one. This post will be updated with the setlist as soon as it is known what the band played. Hopefully Brad has gotten better and will be able to play this show, if not, his tech Ben will most likely play in his place again.

What do you think the band will play? Will you be watching on December 5th? Come and discuss in our forums

Linkin Park continues their two stop Brazilian tour, this time playing in Brasilia!

This is a new stop for the band, so, since I don’t have any history to talk about here, let’s continue on from what I talked about yesterday: Linkin Park's history in Brazil in general. This makes it the seventh time the band have performed in the country, after 2004, 2010, four times in 2012 as part of their South American tour, and yesterday. I’ll talk more about the show yesterday further down, but, for now, enjoy Bleed It Out/Sabtoage from their 2012 show in So Paulo.


No I will not stop posting this song. It's too awesome for that

Alright … let’s talk about the show yesterday.

Most likely due to illness, Brad did not attend the meet & greet or play the show. This is the first time ever that Brad has missed an entire headline show. In 2012, he missed a few TV and award performances in Japan due to being sick, but those were just one-to-three song performances. His guitar tech Ben played in his place. Something similar happened back in 2011 when Phoenix missed a show due to being ill and his tech Ted stood in for him. This was documented in this LPTV episode. Thanks to Brad having an ear infection and not being able to fly, the band had to cancel their 2008 shows in Sweden and Switzerland. As someone who was in place for the Sweden show and saw it cancelled three hours before it was set to start ... yeah, that sucked.

There was a huge gap between Wastelands and the Ballad Medley, due to an issue with the equipment. This gave Chester some time to talk to the audience, something that the band don't do that much of these days. Because of the tech issues, the band skipped playing Castle of Glass and the long intro to Mike's solo medley. Apparently, the problem was that Mikes keyboard had no power, according to a tweet by the man himself. The show was riddled with issues, but it was really interesting to watch and the band seemed to have fun with it. One of the major errors that occurred was during Burn It Down. Not only were there synth issues due to the aforementioned power problem, but Mike and Chester seemed to have gotten confused and screwed up their vocal parts after the first chorus. Take a look for yourself.


"That was interesting ..."

Today, the band plays in Brasilia, something they have never done before. The set they played yesterday would have been a standard Set B from The Carnivores Tour, had there not been issues with the equipment. Can we expect the same set today or will they play Set A from the previous tour? Something that you might be asking is ”Will Brad play tomorrow?” We don’t know, but most likely not. No matter what, we hope he feels better soon.

After this, the band takes 4 days off before playing a show for Guitar Center on the 24th. After that, they play at the Stars of the Seasons Gala in Arizona on the 25th. Then begins the European Tour.

Are you going to the show tonight? Did you attend yesterday's show? Will Brad play tonight? Come and discuss in our forums

Linkin Park returns to Brazil!

They played here in 2004, 2010, and four times in 2012 as part of their South American tour. The performance in 2004 is to date the bands biggest performance, with 80.000 in attendance. It was the last show of the Meteora touring cycle and the last performance until 2005 when the band only performed twice in the entire year. Sadly this is one show that we wish we had a proshot recording of, but sadly we don’t. So instead you can check out The Catalyst from their 2010 performance at the SWU Music and Arts Festival.


Last we caught up with the band on the road, they played in Concord, CA. The show ended The Carnivores Tour, the only tour as of yet that had two LPU summits on it. The tour stretched 26 dates between August 8th and September 19th. From the tour we got the live premieres of Rebellion and Final Masquerade, and on the Los Angeles show Daron Malakian joined the band on stage and played his part on Rebellion. We also got a new version of Lying From You, one that contained elements from the version found on Collision Course. As for the Concord show, check out Final Masquerade from the performance here below.


This show in Belo Horizonte will be livestreamed! At 22:30 DST Linkin Park takes the stage infront of the Brazilian audience for what will most likely be a fantastic show. We have seen videos from the rehearsals, like Points of Authority and Final Masquerade. Will we see some new song debuts? There has been a lot of talk from some band members that they want to play Keys to the Kingdom, and I think we all would love to see that happen. Another song that would be great to work into the show would be A Line In The Sand, but maybe I’m just wishing a bit too hard here. With the release of the song White Noise from The Mall soundtrack, maybe the band will incorporate it into the set? We'll have to wait and see.

Livestream Details:
Stream (Alternate Link)
Linkin Park - 22:30 DST
Countdown Clock.

For the full line up, you can check the Multishow website.
If you are having trouble watching the stream, use Hola for Google Chrome and it should work.

After this, the band plays another show in Brazil on the 19th. After that they head home to play a show for Guitar Center on the 24th.

So what do you think will happen at the show? Will we see any new songs debut? Are you attending the show? Come and discuss in our forums
