What Is the LPA Monthly Mix-Up?
LPA Monthly Mix-Up is an ambitious concept intended to showcase the massive amount of musical talent currently unheard among the Linkin Park fan community. Every month, we will be challenging fans to compete and show off their musical skills, using any and all tools available to them to create their entry. At the conclusion of each competition period, our staff will then go through each entry submitted, and pick our absolute favorite to be featured on the site as the "Winner Of The Month". To promote fairness, runner ups will also be shown, but only one lucky Linkin Park fan will walk away with the honor of being featured as the "Monthly Winner". Now that we have that out of the way view this month's theme below.


Our official theme for the month of September 2014 is:

Keys To The Kingdom Free-For-All

After a brief hiatus, our Monthly Mix-Up is back and we are ready to hit the ground running! With how quickly it caught the listener off guard, the introductory track off of The Hunting Party felt like a great way to start up the Monthly Mix-Up again. Unlike how the lyrics in "Keys To The Kingdom" start, we want you to take control and surprise us! We are challenging you this month by giving you free-for-all creative reign over "Keys To The Kingdom." What does this mean exactly? Well, anything goes, as long as "Keys To The Kingdom" was used in your submission. Remixes, mash-ups and covers are all welcome this month. We do implore you to create something as unique and unexpected as the original. The keys are in your hand. Go crazy and be sure to hit what you aim for.

Deadline is September 30th, 2014.

Good luck.

For the last show before a short break, The Carnivores Tour stops in Clarkston, Michigan.
This is the first time since 2007 that Linkin Park plays in Clarkston. They have been here in 2001, 2001 again, 2004 and 2007. All the performances, including this one has taken place at the DTE Energy Music Theatre, a venue that has had many bands recording their concerts there... and one of those bands are of course Linkin Park. The 2007 show was webcasted by MySpace and recorded and sold as an unofficial DVD. The show featured many great performances, but probably the most famous one is the super extended party version of Bleed It Out with a fantastic drum solo. You can check it out here below.


Make some f*cking noise, Rob Bourdon on the drums!


At the previous show in Tinley Park on August 29th LP played set B with the only change in the setlist being on the rap medley where Mike rapped a verse of When They Come For Me. Something fun that happened during Faint, Mike kept handing his mic to fans in the audience to rap parts of the rap verses. Check out a video of that here below.

From watching YouTube videos and reading reviews from fans, the band has been killing the shows lately, and we hope that they continue with that even for this show. We don't expect anything special from this show, with it being in the middle of the tour and all. The band is welcome to prove us wrong, and do something amazing, like pulling out A Place For My Head that was apparently on a early version of the setlist as a show closer for the Darien Center, NY show. This is however really unlikely and if they would pull out that song it would probably be at the Woodlands, Texas show, with it being another LPU summit show.

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. Remember to tweet pictures to @LPAssociation if you meet some other members.

After this The Carnivores Tour takes a few days off, before resuming in The Woodlands, Texas on September 5th. That show will also have the second LPU summit on this tour, so we all look forward what will come out of it. Maybe a acoustic set with more than one song? We'll have to wait and see. The tour then moves on to Dallas, Texas on September 6th.

What do you think? Will Linkin Park pull out some surprises at this show? Are you going to the show? Come and discuss in our forums.

A new video from the LINKIN LOG series has been uploaded to the Linkin Park YouTube Channel and this is a "Ask Brad" edition. It features Mike asking a various set of questions from the fans, such as why Brad cut his legendary fro. With a weird camera angle and the worst joke/pun Mike has ever delivered, this makes a good episode.

Hoobastank is a band you can get in to, because the reason is you.

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.

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

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.

Are you guys attending tomorrow's show? Don't forget to tell us in the comments, and find out which fellow LPA members are attending your show by checking out the LPA Meet-Ups thread. If you meet with a fellow LPA member, tweet us a pic of yourselves to @LPAssociation!
