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 São 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:

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

Phoenix will be chatting with the LPUnderground members on October 14th at 1PM PST. Phoenix has been vocal in interviews about what songs he wants to play from the album when out on tour, so this will be the perfect moment to ask him what we can expect out on the road. Now would also be a good time to ask about the OST for The Mall since it's being released in theaters on October 17th.

This chat is exclusive to members of the Linkin Park Underground, and to gain access you can join here.

Last month, we challenged the ever-growing remix community with the monumental task of taking a free-for-all creative control of "Keys To The Kingdom" to create something as unexpected and unique as the original. We had an amazing turn-out with 24 very different entries. The entries last month varied from first timers to seasoned veterans with an array of remixes, mash-ups and a cover. Before the winners are announced, I speak on behalf of the staff here by saying we appreciate everyone who participated in our monthly competition! If your entry did not place, please do not be discouraged. We implore you to keep being creative and work at making your remixes the best they can possibly be. With that being said, the September 2014 Keys To The Kingdom Free-For-All winners are:


Xefuzion: "Keys To The Kingdom" (Xefuzion Remix)

Xefuzion took his remix this month and paired it with Charlie Chaplin's inspirational speech at the end of "The Great Dictator" and created this epic call to arms which the lyrics to "Keys To The Kingdom" pair quite nicely with. This powerful and impressionable track will both captivate and inspire you with stellar decision making and a fantastic usage of lyrical content to tell a story.

Runners Up:

ASTROBRIGHT [MKH x Broman]: "Keys To The Kingdom" (feat. Maria Cecilia Jernæs and wEEKnIGHT pSYCHOPATH)

Remember that one cover I was talking about earlier? Well this is it. MKH and Broman's entry this month starts off with Mike's first verse beautifully delivered by Maria Cecilia Jernæs accompanied by a piano. The cover then goes from there featuring everything from a Sammy Hagar-esque howl, live guitars and drums to an original rap verse and guitar solo. This unique and vastly different entry definitely stood out from the crowd. Thank you guys for thinking outside of the box.

RostaSliwka: "Gershwin Meets Linkin Park"

RostaSliwka took this very off the wall idea of what a mash-up of George Gershwin and Linkin Park would sound like. The finished product comes out way better than anyone could ever expect. It is out of the box thinking like this which makes an entry stand out on its own two feet and forces you to take notice of it.

Cypher: "Keys To The Kingdom" (Cypher Drumstep VIP)

Cypher's Drumstep remix of "Keys To The Kingdom" takes the listener on this audible acid trip which starts off with a piano intro and takes a sharp turn filled with the highest of highs. It continues on and brilliantly mixes the very harsh vocals of the Chorus to "Keys" very well with the rest of his track to where neither are overbearing. This makes for a very pleasant audible adventure which leaves you Jonesing for more.

The Almighty Potato [Infamous Davy Fresh Cobra]: "Keys To McDaddydom"

This remix starts of with this very laid-back feeling intro which is reminiscent of the "hidden" track off of the Hybrid Theory EP. The Almighty Potato has a great balance in his remix with having a very aggressive song, but managing to keep it harnessed and fitting it into a less-aggressive setting.

Honorable Mention:

Silverstreet: "Keys To The Kingdom" (Remix)

Silverstreet gets the honorable mention this month with his outstanding, pitch-shifting, roads untraveled-mashing remix that almost guarantees to leave you with "Tell me what's worth fighting for, when we know there's nothing more, Just to sell ourselves for this: The path we least resist" stuck in your head for days. The way that Silverstreet handled the vocals in both Roads Untraveled and Keys To The Kingdom was brilliant by changing the tone and feeling of both songs and making them work well together.

Congratulations to the winners from last month's competition! October's Monthly Mix-Up brings the fun of The Hunting Party's second track "All For Nothing" to the table in another Free-For-All! Good luck to those entering this month's competition and congrats to those who placed last month!
