    hey guys, I just felt like it might be interesting talking about the experience of the first LP show of each of us. For a real fan i guess it's a special moment to see our idols for the first time...

    OK, so my first Linkin Park concert was on may 26, in Rock in Rio Lisboa - Portugal. I waited for 3 years for this concert until they finally came back to Portugal. Time passed really fast since the day that they've been announced (in February) until the day of the concert, and now almost a month has passed, it's crazy and I can't believe the big day it's already long gone!
    I got there at 9AM, 13 hours before the concert, I couldn't miss the first row, I had it all planed months before and luckily i got to the front (and I'm not very good at running!) :p. I can't describe the feeling of being in the first row, but the first goal was sucessfully achieved. The first concert of the night was Limp Bizkit (became a fan since then, good sign I guess...), followed by The offspring (meh...), and finally... LP! It was so much going on at the same time that It was difficult to perceive everything while trying to not be smashed by the crowd or trampled in the head by a crowd surfer. And probably I've been hit in the head because I have amnesia of that concert, I mean, it was the fastest hour and a half of my life and I don't have a clear image in my mind of having THEM in front of me, I barely remember having Chester in the stage right in front of me in, but can't remember Mike. (I guess someone stole my memories :leo:) And unfortunately none of then passed close to me. This guy > :cocainefan: < had more luck (yes, he's from this show) xD
    I feel a little guily for not having a very clear memory from that night, and wonder if I'm the only one (no, I wasn't drunk). At least I have the live stream recorded that ensures me I've really been there and I can clearly say it was the best day of my life! Watch the full concert stream here

    What about your experiences ?

    Doesn't sound very funny having the show canceled. So you haven't been to any yet ?
    But at least you guys there in the US have lots of concerts, here it's just one, every few years...

    Depends on what you consider to be my first Linkin Park show. I attended Live 8 in Philadelphia in 2005 before I was really into them when they brought Jay-Z around. However, my first actual Linkin Park show was January 31, 2011 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and it was pretty incredible. My next show will be at the Honda Civic Tour in Camden on August 17.

    I was never on a LP show. :(

    But I'm still begging LP to come to Croatia or even Italy, I'll go.

    First concert was in 2007 at the Excel Center in Minneapolis. Was first in line at the LPU Meet and Greet (although I can no longer afford to be in the LPU :( ). Show was fucking fantastic.

    Has anyone here been to a bunch of LP concerts, like how Geki has been to a ton of LP, DBS and FM concerts?

    My first Linkin Park concert was in 2001 at Ozzfest. Was pretty awesome and a highlight of the day, even though the people I went with weren't that into seeing Linkin Park.

    Hell yes! I was actually surprised that my brother didn't put me down for enjoying the set that much. He is still a big metalhead to this day. Same goes with everyone in the group that was there. Except for me. I still enjoy it, but I have seen there is more out there.:awesome:

    For some reason second time was better that the first time... I saw them for the first time in 2008 and I was excited to see them in person and all, but I got bored halfway thru. The second time I've saw them was during ATS tour, and it was one of the best concerts of my life... and at the end Rob threw me his drum stick :)

    In 2010 I went to London on a trip. When I came back home I saw the dates for the ATS tour, and LP played like 3 blocks away from my hotel 2 nights in a row.

    I wanted to fucking kill myself...

    They were also at Novarock this year (and last), and that's not far from Croatia (I think).

    Getting from Croatia to Austria is very hard when you're 14.. :D

    Are you from Croatia or Serbia? On which concerts were you?

    It makes sense now why you couldn't go... don't worry, you'll see them eventually.

    I'm from Serbia, but I've been studying in Slovakia since 2008, so I was able to see them in Czech Republic (2008) and in Austria (2010)...
