Tonight, Linkin Park travels south from Manchester to London to perform at the world-famous O2 Arena. This date was originally slated to be the last date of the European Tour, but sold out so quickly that the band chose to add one more show on Nov. 24th. This will be the second of three performances in England to close off the tour. The last time the band came to London was back in July 2011 where the band performed at The Roundhouse.

However, the band has become very acquainted with the O2 Arena over the years. In fact, the band performed here last on consecutive November dates back in 2010 on the 10th and the 11th. More significantly, these dates marked the band's first ever International LPU Summit. The event was the band's first ever designated international gathering for members of the LP Underground in England and around the world. The event's highlights included opportunities for LPU members to play soccer with one another, to meet the band and see their equipment, to enjoy special Q&A sessions as well as intimate acoustic performances of their songs. The band has since held a number of other summits around the world, from London to Sydney to New Jersey.

Prior to that, the band again performed back-to-back performances at the O2 Arena in January of 2008. The band visited London prior to that in 2007, 2003, and 2001 amounting to 9 total London performances before tonight.

The Summit was not the only notable aspect of the band's last visit to The O2. On the band's November 11th performance of Faint, the band brought fans from the audience on the stage to play bass and guitar. This is not the first time the band has brought fans from the audience on stage to perform for the song, but this only added to the incredible fan experience the band provided for London fans in 2010.

With only two shows left on the tour, will Linkin Park surprise us with any new songs or performers? Austin Carlile from "Of Mice and Men" has been joining the band on stage for "Faint" on several shows this tour. We'll have to find out!

Are you going to the show? If so, 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. I will personally be at tonight's show, so please free to come say hello! I'll be in the seated area, but I'll be at the LPU Early Entry!

Are you going to any of these last two London shows? Come and discuss in our forums!

Time for England! Linkin Park finishes of their European tour with 3 back to back dates in England, and the first of these nights takes place in Manchester! The band are no strangers to Manchester, having performed here seven times earlier. three times in 2001, two times in 2003, 2008 and then in 2010.

At the September 15th show in 2001, the band brought back My December. The song hadn't been played since late 2000. That show also featured a new show intro being performed by Mr. Hahn. At the 2008 performance, there were plenty of noteworthy things. For Points of Authority, Mike rapped It's Going Down over the intro but the fans in the audience caused him to mess it up. He just laughed at it and hyped them up for the start of the song. Check that out here. This is one of the shows that were filmed for the live video of Given Up, and Mike even mentions that before they played In Pieces. Video of that will be below. On the intro of A Place For My Head someone distracted Brad by throwing things on stage, causing him to interupt the intro. Check out the performance of In Pieces here below.


"Hmm, let's just test if the guitar is on" - Brad

Last we caught up with Linkin Park, they ended their nine show German run in Bremen. The show featured a standard Set B but with a welcome change from Mike. He has mostly been rapping his two verses from Remember The Name over his medly on this tour, but at the Bremen show he switched it up and rapped verse one of High Voltage instead. This is the first time any version of High Voltage has been performed live since 2009. He switched it up because someone at the LPU Meet&Greet asked him too, so if you're going to one of those remember to put in your requests. Check out a video of the Mike Solo Medley and Lying From You here below.


Please do this at the November 24th show. Please?

With only three shows left on the tour, what can we expect? Austin Carlile from "of Mice and Men" has been joining the band on stage for Faint on several shows on this tour. Can we expect him too come out on another song? Maybe someone from Linkin Park to come out in their set and play with them? Can we expect another verse to be added to the rap medley? Maybe a surprise song? You never know..

Are you going to the show? Well... 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. Personally, I'll be at the show on the 24th in London.

After this show the band only has two more shows left on the tour with back to back nights in London on the 23rd and the 24th.

Are you going to any of these last three shows? Are you expecting a surprise in the set? Come and discuss in our forums.

Today, Linkin Park conclude their quest through Germany at the OVB Arena. This will be the first time that Linkin Park will perform at the OVB Arena, which opened in 2011. Having performed at the O2 World venue in Berlin yesterday, fans across the globe were treated to "the World's first UHD Live Concert," which was recorded with a 10 bit color depth at 3840 x 2160 pixels and at 50 frames per second. What does this mean exactly? Glorious high-definition. Check out the Performance of The Castle Of Glass Experience followed by the Leave Out All The Rest/Shadow Of The Day/Iridescent Medley below.



Even though the video lags around 1.5 seconds to the audio, the image and sound quality are impeccable.

Linkin Park played through Set A last night, leaving speculation that Set B will be performed tonight. Looking forward, Linkin Park will be headed to The United Kingdom to play a three day marathon of back-to-back-to-back concerts starting on Saturday in Manchester. They will then head to London to play back-to-back shows at The O2 Arena to close out The Hunting Party European Tour on the 24th. Will you be attending tonight's concert? Stop by our forums to let us know your thoughts! Stay tuned for more news about the LP Underground as we wait for LPU XIV to go live later today.

Hallo Berlin! Tomorrow Linkin Park will play a special show in the German capital, which will be taking place at the O2 World venue in Berlin. The band has played eight times in the city prior to this tour date, and their last concert here was at the Admiralspalast Theater on June 5th, 2012, which was recorded on DVD and released as the CD/DVD Special Edition of their fifth studio album LIVING THINGS, also known as LIVING THINGS+.

Check out a performance of Waiting for the End from this show:

Tomorrow's performance marks a special occassion as it'll be "the World's first UHD Live Concert", which will be streamed by SES and Samsung. We wonder if this could be the show that was once rumoured to be recorded and released as a Live DVD/Blu Ray, but for now official information only points to a special live stream of the event.

Berlin fans not only have the opportunity to enjoy Linkin Park's concert experience, as they've also been able to check out great art pieces, buy exclusive merchandise and have a first-look of the new LPU XIV membership by going to the Saturn Store at the Mall of Berlin until tomorrow, November 19th.

After tomorrow's performance, Linkin Park will wrap up their visit to Germany for this year in Bremen and The Hunting Party Tour will then head to the United Kingdom for the last four dates of 2014. If you're going to the O2 World tomorrow, you can check this thread to see which fellow LPA members are going, and if you arrange a meetup, don't forget to tweet us your pics to @LPAssociation!

Are you coming to this show? Will you be able to watch the stream? Stop by our Forums to let us know your thoughts and stay tuned for more news about The Hunting Party Tour and the LP Underground as we wait for LPU XIV to go live.

During a recent tour stop in Oberhausen, Germany; AltWire's Melissa Wilke was lucky enough to sit down with Mike Shinoda for an interview before the band's show in Oberhausen. During the interview, he not only gave fans an insight into the band’s current projects, but he also talked about creating a home away from home in Berlin. Other topics that were discussed were the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, along with letting fans vote for their setlist and how to handle the band’s relationship with the fans (charging for M&Gs etc).

This is definitely one of the more interesting interviews Mike has given lately, and is something you most certainly don't want to miss. For the full interview, and video check out the article on AltWire here.

On November 19, Linkin Park will be playing a show at the O2 World in Berlin, Germany, and Linkin Park fans all over the world will be able to watch; the band have partnered up with Samsung and satellite operator SES to broadcast the show live via satellite for TV viewers worldwide.


The show will be streamed exclusive on SES's HD "Astra" channel, according to an announcement on the SES website. Fans will get to see the video broadcast in "Ultra HD", which means "a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, 50 frame per second and a colour depth of 10 bit." An article on Broadband TV News further tells us that the concert will be filmed using "10 Ultra HD cameras [and] can be received unencrypted on ["Astra]." Linkin Park's Berlin performance will be their first live music concert to be shown on this channel and at this high a resolution.

The SES post mentions that the broadcast will only be viewable with Samsung's 2014 Ultra HD TVs. Broadband TV News' article, likely quoting from a press release, gives a little more detail:

With Samsung Ultra HD TV sets from 2014, DTH satellite households will be able to receive the concert through the integrated DVB-S2 digital tuner and HEVC decoder; no additional devices are required. 20 different models are currently available at retailers.
For anyone who's able to catch it, the show will begin at 9PM CET on the evening of November 19.

Next stop of the tour is in Frankfurt, where they last played on November 2nd, 2010 at the Festhalle, same venue where they'll play tomorrow night.

To remember the band's previous performance in Frankfurt, check out this video of Wretches and Kings below:

Back in Paris with Linkin Park. This performance makes it the return of Linkin Park to Paris and the show tonight makes it the bands tenth time they've played there, other performances include four times in 2001, twice in 2003, 2007, 2008 and finally 2010. The last time the band performed in Paris was the day after the tenth anniversary of Hybrid Theory and the band pulled out a surprise at the show. For the first and only time on the whole A Thousand Suns touring cycle the band performed A Place For My Head. This was the last performance of the song until it opened the Rock in Rio performance in 2012. Take a look at the Paris performance of the song here below.


What can we expect for the 15th year anniversary? The pressure is on!

The last performance for the band was in Vienna. The show was a standard Set A, but the interesting thing about the show was not the show itself. It's what happened at the LPUnderground Meet & Greet. The LPU members in attendance was played a track from the upcoming LPU XIV CD. The song is a instrumental demo from 2002. There was also a rumored track list that surfaced, but it has turned out to be false. Too bad, since it "promised" us demos from all of the bands eras. Now, because I posted two videos of Points of Authority yesterday, showing the song throughout the years in Vienna, here is Points of Authority from yesterdays show too.


Yeah! Surprisingly good audio, given where it was filmed.

The show today, can we expect a normal set, or will the band pull out something special? We're slowly but surely getting closer to the end of the tour and I don't think that anyone would mind if the band started to switch up the setlists a bit more. Will there be another surprise for the LPUndergorund members at the Meet & Greet, maybe another song being played? Let's hope, we all would like some more info.

Are you going to the show? Well... 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 tonight the band has three final shows in Germany before moving on to England to close out the tour with three shows in three nights. Frankfurt on the 17th and then Berlin on the 19th, before closing out Germany in Bremen on the 20th.

Are you going to the show tonight? Will there be another surprise at the LPU M&G? Will there be a surprise in the set? Have you attended any shows on the tour or are you going to one? Come and discuss in our forums.

Linkin Park returns to Austria! This performance makes it the ninth time the band plays in the country, but only the third time they play in Vienna. Previous performances was twice in 2001, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and finally 2012. A good example of the quick success the band had was that the first performance in 2001 the band was a opening act, but when they came back just a few months later they were now the headliner. In 2008, the first performance of Points of Authority with Petrified over the intro and There They Go over the outro was ever performed, and they repeated this with their 2009 performance. Because this is one of my favourite live remixes/mashups, I will include two videos of the song, because over the year that passed between the performances the band kept changing the remix up. Have a look for yourself here below.



2008 (if anyone can find a better full version of this, please link it in the comments.)



2009

Last night the band played in Munich. There they again played a regular set of Set B. The band really is pushing it this tour, playing 3 shows in these last three days, that's quite admirable for such a high profile band. And they will do it again, from the 22nd to the 24th in England. As of where we are right now in the tour, it doesn't look like we will get any surprises... but what would a surprise be if we knew it was coming? We'll just have to wait and see what happens at the rest of the tour. Check out this clip featurning Numb and Waiting For The End from the show here below.



Why turn off the camera at the mention of The Hunting Party? Booo!

After tonight, the band heads to France to play in Paris on the 16th, then they head back to Germany to play the third to last Germany date in Frankfurt on the 17th.

Are you going to the show tonight? Do you think we will get any surprises on the remaining dates on this tour? Come and discuss in our forums.
