After a day off from touring, Linkin Park have found their way to Darien Center, NY tonight to perform at the Darien Performing Arts Center. This venue has hosted Linkin Park twice in the past for Projekt Revolution tours in 2004 and 2007.

Linkin park are also hosting their 10th LPU Summit today in which lucky members of the LPU are given the opportunity to meet and hang out with other LPU members and the band prior to the concert. This will be the first of two LPU Summits this tour, with the second one being hosted at the Cynthia Woods Mitchel Pavilion on September 5th in The Woodlands, TX. Prior LPU Summits have seen acoustic performances, sound checks, walks across the stage, as well as backstage and tour bus tours to name a few. Perhaps we will get to witness an acoustic performance of a song from The Hunting Party? Time will tell. For more information on LPU Summits and how you can attend one, visit for more details.

Mike Shinoda recently was a guest on the Tim Ferriss show. The guys talk about all things Linkin Park and Mike Shinoda. They mention the beginnings of the band, Fort Minor, the tech and routines of Linkin Park and their live show. It's a really good listen and you should check it out.

The official description from the show page is:

Mike Shinoda is best known as the rapper, principal songwriter, keyboardist, rhythm guitarist and one of the two vocalists (yes, an insane list) of Linkin Park, which has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide and earned two Grammy Awards in the process.

Mike has collaborated with everyone from Jay-Z to Depeche Mode, and he’s also the lead rapper in his side project Fort Minor, which I’m a huge fan of.

As if that’s not enough, he’s also provided artwork, production and mixing for all the projects mentioned above. The man is a beast… but did he start out that way? His answers might surprise you.

This episode covers how Mike got started, advice for aspiring musicians (or creatives/artists of any type), navigating “entertainment” and Hollywood, daily rituals, how he writes songs, how he rehearses, and much more.
You can listen to the episode on the page, where you can also check out all the links and products talked about in the episode.

The Carnivores Tour continues on it's way through the US and Canada, this time stopping in Camden, New Jersey.

Linkin Park and Camden are no strangers to each other, with this performance being the sixth in total. The band performed here in 2001, 2001 again, 2004, 2007, 2008, and 2012. The 2012 performance was at the sixth LPU Summit, where the band held a rock, papper, scissors contest and played a two song acoustic set consisting of The Messenger and In My Remains. This is also where we got the familiar video you have seen on our front page... Mike Shinoda welcoming you to LPA.

While that video is cool, we can't talk about Linkin Park in Camden without mentioning the 2004 performance. In 2011 this was released to the world. This is a full set recording of what many have called the best Linkin Park setlist ever, and it's a fantastic performance. What makes this performance even more special is that this is the only show on the 2004 Projekt Revolution tour that the band pulled fans up on stage to play guitar on Faint. For this performance they pulled up a fan named Billy on stage, they did try with another fan named Jason before Billy but he didn't work out. You can check out Linkin Park ft. Billy play Faint here below.

At the previous performance of The Carnivores Tour the band played in Bristow, VA where the band played the second set list again. The band continued with the short cut down versions of several songs, making the set list list 28 songs as played. The show went down smoothly, except for issues that Mr. Hahn seemed to have with the samples, as you can see in the Lying From You video further below.

In terms of set lists, the band has so far played two different ones. They brought back With You, Lying From You and Somewhere I Belong. On Lying From You the band added the intro from Dirt Off Your Shoulders/Lying From You from Collision Course. They also added the Jay-Z part to the bridge of the song. All the Jay-Z parts are sampled and triggered by Mr. Hahn, but this opens the door for Jay-Z to appear on stage with the band sometime during the tour. You can check out a performance of Lying From You here below.

We have a full video here, but we can't embed it due to Facebook, but thanks to forum member peetagts for the video.

With the band having performed the same set list two days in a row and then switching to another, is it possible that with this being the fifth performance we will get a new set list? Or will the band stick to the two that they already have? This show being live streamed, so any surprises are welcome, as long as Rebellion and Final Masquerade stays in there and gets a pro shot video.

In an initiative to connect the fans of Linkin Park, we here on LPA made a meet up schedule, so if you want to meet some fellow LPA users before the show, the page for all the information and names of who are attending the show is right here. So make it known that you are attending the show, so you can meet some other awesome fans. At this show there will be two admins of LPA present, see if you can find them at the show.

Live Stream Details

On August 4th it was announced that this show would be live streamed, adding on the greatness that is Linkin Park in Camden.

The live stream will start at 9:20 ET, 6:20 PST and 2:20 AM BST. And thanks to Yahoo we have a countdown timer on the site where the stream will happen, so if you are unsure when that is, just click here and you will find out how much time remains. It doesn't get simpler than that. We usually, during a live stream, follow it in the shoutbox. Come and join us in there during the show. If you miss the live broadcast, the show will be up for 24 hours, and even after that it will probably find a nice home on someones YouTube channel. The Yahoo page also have a nice playlist of seemingly every Linkin Park music video and some LPTV episodes.

What do you think? Are you going to this show? Are you gonna watch the live stream? Are you excited for pro shots of Rebellion and Final Masquerade? Come and discuss in our forums.
