MONTREALITY released earlier today on YouTube an interview with Mike Shinoda where they ask him a selection of questions, starting from what kind of student he was, what are his favorite cartoon and video games, Fort Minor, even about the Eminem collaboration the fanbase has discussed much about. Also there is a great message for the youth (or people in general) towards the end. Watch the video below!

Tomorrow, Linkin Park returns to its home in California for the last four shows of the Carnivores Tour (five, including the date in Irvine a few days ago). The next stop of the tour is on the very familiar city of Los Angeles, where the band has played a grand total of 61 shows! Since 1997, LA has seen the band grow over the years starting from their very first shows at the Whiskey A Go Go and has seen them play in numerous venues throughout the big city.

Linkin Park plays And One at the Roxy Theater, September 5th, 2000, prior to the release of Hybrid Theory



It is not hard to find great memories of Linkin Park playing in Los Angeles, the band has done memorable performances not only in full concerts but also in television appearances such as Jimmy Kimmel (2003, 2012 & 2013), the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, the 2012 American Music Awards, the 2013 Sunset Strip Music Festival and the MTV Collision Course with Jay-Z at The Roxy, which earned the band their second Grammy for their Numb/Encore collaboration at the 48th Grammy Awards Ceremony where they played the award-winning song live along with the great Paul McCartney in a mash-up with "Yesterday".





Last date of The Carnivores Tour took place in Washington and, just like Mike Shinoda did in Irvine, Chester Bennington took the time last night in Quincy to spread the word about the IAVA organization. As described on their website, IAVA is a 21st century veterans’ organization dedicated to standing with the 2.8 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives. For more information about the Organization and how can you help them, visit IAVA.org.



Tomorrow's show will take place at the Hollywood Bowl and, despite the fact Linkin Park has played over 60 times in LA, they have never played at the Hollywood Bowl before, so this should make the experience a bit more special. For fans unable to attend the show, remember you can watch a Live Stream of the event by going to VyRT.com. And for those of you who are going, don't forget to check the LPA Meet-Ups thread to see which fellow LPA members will attend to your show, and if you meet with some LPA friends, don't forget to tweet us some pics at @LPAssociation!

Next stops of the tour will be in Chula Vista and Wheatland, before wrapping up the tour with a final date in Concord. Are you excited about going to the show or watching it online? What are your thoughts about the tour now that it's nearing its end? Tell us all about it in our forums!

It's a day late, but another episode of the Linkin Log series has been uploaded to the Linkin Park YouTube channel. This is weird one, with the band shooting some hoops and asking Brad some questions. Due to bad audio, the whole thing is subtitled. As a way to make it up for us, they also added a laugh track. You can check it out here below.


As a thank you for the subtitles, we will excuse the late arrival of the episode.

You can watch the rest of the Linkin Log Vlogs on this playlist, and don't forget to check out the Linkin Park YouTube channel for more LPTV and videos from the band.

The Carnivores Tour heads to Washington!

Before the tour takes a four stop in California and ends the tour, they head up to Washington for a performance. The show takes place in Quincy, a place that Linkin Park has only played once before. Quincy may not be so super familiar for LP, but the rest of Washington sure are, the band has performed here 15 times! 2000, 2001(#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8), 2003(#1, #2, #3), 2004, 2007, 2012. Washington... never complain that Linkin Park never plays where you are.
There is so much to talk about with all these Washington performances, but in order to spare you and me what would be a whole page worth of information, let's restrict it to just the Quincy performance. This was part of the Ozzfest run for that year, and this show was the first one to drop Forgotten for some reason. If some of you have not heard the performances from 2001 and Ozzfest specifically, I highly recommend that you track some down and check them out. We are lucky enough to have a full audio recording of the 2001 performance floating around the interwebs, but instead I want to post the only video we have of it, In The End. It's a really great performance and you can check it out here below.


Is that Chester or Slim Shady?


Last we caught up with The Carnivores Tour was when they performed in Irvine. Last night the band performed set B with the Remember The Name hybrid verse over the rap medley.
For once I'm not gonna insert a performance video from the show, but I wanna pull some attention to what Linkin Park has been doing that has not gotten much coverage. The band has teamed up with IAVA and been shouting them out in the shows on this tour on a number of occasions. The IAVA is an orginasation that takes care of veterans. The IAVA has cut together a music video with Wastelands, consisitng of photos and you can check it out here. For more please go to IAVA.org. But since there is tradition to post a video from the previous show... here you go.


As for the show today, this being the fifth last show on the tour, now would be a good time to pull out some surprises for the fans. Maybe someone from Linkin Park can join AFI or 30 Seconds to Mars in their set, or someone from those bands can come out and play during the Linkin Park set. We will just have to wait and see, but hopefully something surprising happens on the rest of the tour.

After this the band heads back to California for four shows, starting on September 15th and ending the tour on September 19th in Concord.
The September 15th show will be livestreamed on VyRT, more details can be found on VyRT.com and in the tour post for that 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.

The Carnivores Tour is in California!

The tour comes to Irvine for a performance at a familiar venue for Linkin Park, the Verizion Wireless Amphitheater. This has been the venue for all of the Linkin Park shows in Irvine. Ever. This show makes it the fifth performance here. At the earlier performances, three out of four has been for the KROQ Weenie Roast. These took place in 2001, 2007 and 2011 while the 2008 performance was for that years Projekt Revolution. Because these have mostly been KROQ events, there are plenty of videos from the shows, sadly not from the 2001 performance though, the only video that exists from that show is of Crawling. But we are gonna focus on a legendary moment in Linkin Park history, and it comes from the 2007 performance. At that performance, Mike brought out a pink Hello Kitty guitar and used it for the performance of From The Inside. If you have not seen it before, I will be kind enough to include a video of it here below.



Mike still owns that guitar and it can be seen in LPTV episodes from Mikes home studio.



Last night the tour stopped in Chester's home state of Arizona. The band performed set A with the hybrid verse of Remember The Name over the rap medley. Check out a video of that here below.


At this point in the tour the band has heavily rotated set A and B with only minor changes throughout. We don't expect any changes at this point but it would be nice for the band to really surprise us and pull out a set C with some songs that haven't been played on this tour.

After this, the band heads of to Quincy, WA. This is the first time Linkin Park has ever played there, even though they have played 13 times in Washington earlier. After that they come back to California to play the remaining four shows there, ending in Concord, CA.

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.

Are you going to this show? Are you meeting up with other LPA members? Do you think the band will pull out any surprises at this show? Come and discuss in our forums.

Tonight's show in Phoenix, AZ marks the band's fourteenth trip to Arizona and their first since February of 2011! This will be The Carnivores Tour's only stop in Chester Bennington's home state (as well as my own) of Arizona before finishing up with a string of tour dates in California and a brief excursion to Washington state.

The last time the band was in Arizona was in 2011 for the A Thousand Suns World Tour. If any of you would like to relive the experience that I unfortunately did not get the chance to experience, a video clip of "New Divide" from the concert is provided below!


As you all know by now, setlists for The Carnivores Tour have largely remained unchanged, with minor tweaks from show-to-show. Fans can expect something very similar to what the band played in Englewood, CO a couple of days ago!

Are you guys attending tonight's show like I am? 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! I will be there, so feel free to stop by and say hello! I will be in my blue LPAssociation shirt!

A new LPTV episode has been uploaded to the Linkin Park YouTube channel, this time documenting the end of the European tour this summer. The episode focuses mostly on the performances in Italy and England. Check it out here below.


Over 5 minutes? Wohoo! Finally some lengthy ones.

What do you think about this episode? Are you glad it's actually longer than the average length of LPTVs have been this season? Come and discuss in our forums.

Tonight's show in Englewood, Colorado marks the band's fourteenth trip to Colorado and their first since August of 2012. This will be The Carnivores Tour's only stop in Colorado before heading to Chester's hometown of Phoenix, AZ (as well as my own), and then finishing up with a string of tour dates in California and a brief excursion to Washington state.

The last time the band was in Colorado was for the Honda Civic Tour. You can view the entire live performance from August 30th, 2012 in Denver below!


As you all know by now, setlists for The Carnivores Tour have largely remained unchanged, with minor tweaks from show-to-show. Fans can expect something very similar to what the band played in Dallas, TX a couple of days ago!

It seems the closing song from Joe Hahn's movie "Mall" has appeared online today in full and can be listened to below. This doesn't seem like an official release, though Joe Hahn has stated that the soundtrack may not see a retail release at all, but instead will be made available at some point in some way for fans. No sign of any of the other "Mall" tracks at the moment but we'll post them if and when they do show up. Check out the new song below.




This track is one of four new songs that Linkin Park used for Joe Hahn's movie "Mall" and is titled either White Noise, Warm Spell, Luna or Ammosick. Which track title relates to which song has caused a lot of speculation, so we're reluctant to title this until Linkin Park release the official listing. Let us know your thoughts on the track on the LPA Forums.

After a great show and LPU Summit yesterday which saw another acoustic rendition of Final Masquerade in The Woodlands, TX, The Carnivores Tour continues with another Texan date, this time at the Gexa Energy Pavillion in Dallas.

The band has performed a good dozen times in Dallas before, with the last time being at the very same Gexa Energy Pavillion on August 27th, 2012 during the Honda Civic Tour with a setlist that included one of the few performances of In My Remains. Check out a video performance of Lost in the Echo [Holding Company Intro] below:



After this show, the band will head to Engelwood, CO before returning to Chester Bennington's very own hometown in Phoenix, AZ, and then will start the last leg of the tour in California, with a stop in Washington in between.

Are you attending this show? Don't forget to tell us in the comments and check out the LPA Meet-Ups thread and see which fellow LPA members will go as well. If you arranged a meeting with fellow LPA members and have any pictures to share, send us a tweet at @LPAssociation!
