After two previous dates in Montreal and Toronto and a quick stop to Minnesota yesterday (check out a cool performance of Runaway/Wastelands below), Linkin Park returns for a last date of The Carnivores Tour in Canada, this time at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB.

This will be the very first time Linkin Park plays a show in Winnipeg, so fans from the area who previously had to travel to nearby locations to see the band now have the opportunity to see them perform in their hometown.

This concert marks the end of the Canadian leg of the Carnivores Tour, which now heads back south to the United States for the second half of the tour dates, starting in Tinley Park, IL and then in Clarkston, MI. Don't forget to check out the LPA Meet-Ups thread to find out which fellow LPA members are attending to your show, and if you meet with a fellow member, tweet us your pics to @LPAssociation!

Tonight Linkin Park continues their Carnivores Tour to St. Paul, Minnesota where they will be performing at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. This performance marks the half way point to the Carnivores Tour where they have now debuted five songs from their new album The Hunting Party. Will this mark the start of more live song debuts in the latter half of the tour? Who's excited and going to this concert? Check out which fans are going at the LPA Meet Ups page!

The last time Linkin Park performed in Minnesota was in 2011 for the A Thousand Suns Tour in the Xcel Energy Center. The band missed out on a Minnesota performance in 2012 for the Honda Civic Tour. However, this will mark the first time the band has played at the State Fair Grounds and will be the only concert on the tour that will be at a State Fair. At the 2011 performance at the Xcel Energy Center, Linkin Park debuted Burning In The Skies for the first time in the United States. In addition, the band recorded and created a live fan music video for Waiting For The End at this concert date alongside a similar Chicago date. Watch the video below:


Following this concert, the tour continues back into Canada, through the Midwest, and towards the West Coast:

Aug 27 Winnipeg, MB @ MTS Centre
Aug 29 Tinley Park, IL @ First Midwest Bank Amphitheater
Aug 30 Clarkston, MI @ DTE Energy Theatre
Sept 5 The Woodlands, TX @ The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion
Sept 6 Dallas, TX @ Gexa Energy Pavilion
Sept 8 Englewood, CO @ Fiddler’s Green Ampitheatre

Tonight's show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada marks the band's seventh trip to Toronto and their first since February of 2011. Interestingly enough, after their last show in Toronto, the band were forced to cancel five shows when Chester came down with an illness. Here's hoping the past doesn't repeat itself!

For those who attended the band's show at the Air Canada Centre in February 2011, like myself, you can relive that exciting concert in-full by checking out the video below:


Setlists for The Carnivores Tour have largely remained unchanged, with only minor tweaks from show-to-show, so fans can expect something very similar to what was played in Montreal, QC last night.

Are you guys attending tonight's show? I'll be in the pit wearing a black LPAssociation shirt, so feel free to introduce yourself! You can find out which fellow LPA members are attending your show by checking out the LPA Meet-Ups thread. If you do meet with a fellow LPA member, don't forget to tweet us a pic of yourselves to @LPAssociation!

After another great show (and LPU summit) yesterday in New York, which featured an unexpected performance of Reading My Eyes over the Bleed it Out bridge, Linkin Park and The Carnivores Tour now head up north for a visit to Canada, and are ready to take the stage at the Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, QC tomorrow, August 23.

The band has played numerous shows in Canada, with the most recent on September 4th, 2012 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver during the Honda Civic Tour. They have visited Montreal on four ocassions, with the last time being on February 7th, 2011 at the Centre Bell supporting the A Thousand Suns Tour (you can check out a video performance of The Requiem/Faint below), but their last visit to the Parc Jean-Drapeau venue goes all the way back to July 20th, 2003 during the successful Summer Sanitarium tour with Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Deftones and Mudvayne.




After tomorrow's concert, Linkin Park will play their second of three Canadian shows on the Carnivores Tour by heading to Toronto, ON on Sunday before returning to the United States in St. Paul, MN on August 26.

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 LPUnderground.com for more details.

The Carnivores Tour keeps on trucking across the eastern U.S. with their next stop occurring Tuesday night in Wantagh at the Nikon at Jones Beach Amphitheatre. Linkin Park are no stranger to this venue, having played it on five separate occasions, the latest of which was in 2012. Wantagh-area fans may remember fondly the following video from Projekt Revolution 2008, which opens with a fantastic version of "What I've Done", complete with an intro from Street Drum Corps and an extended band intro.


After Tuesday night's concert, Linkin Park, 30 Seconds To Mars, and AFI will complete their NY leg of the Carnivores Tour in Darien Center, NY on Thursday the 21st before they head to the land of gravy and cheese curds in Montreal, QC
