    Today, Linkin Park's production manager, Jim Digby, stopped by the LPU chat to answer questions and talk about the Honda Civic Tour which is right around the corner. View a recap of the chat below:

    - Jim opens the chat with Adam of LPU.
    - A normal day starts about 7am where they proceed to build the show.
    - He is the production manager and takes care of everything that is required in building the show. Mainly the equipment for the show and stage.
    - Missy is the mystery hard-hat owner.
    - Linkin Park will tour Russia next year.
    - The show is brand new, will look great and sound great.
    - The ominous Pooch makes an appearance in awesome fashion.
    - It's usually a 20 hour work day with only a couple hours sleep.
    - New stage that is going to be amazing and the band will see it for the first time tonight.
    - He is from Pennsylvania.
    - Not sharing details on the setlist as it should be a surprise.
    - The new set has been built with the fans in mind. It also has a few surprises for fans that Linkin Park haven't utilized on tour before.
    - The set will contain video.
    - Megumi makes an appearance.
    - Lonnie makes an appearance.
    - He thinks LIVING THINGS is LP's best work. His favourite track is CASTLE OF GLASS.
    - They like to make up funny lyrics to Linkin Park songs.
    - Chef Grey brings in amazing salad. Beets, goat cheese, candied walnuts... yeah. Megumi gets kewpie mayonnaise.
    - He's worked for Linkin Park for 11 years.
    - He likes bacon only if it's crispy. Jim doesn't like sushi bacon.
    - Tour compromises of 5 buses and 12 tractor trailers.
    - More European Tour info may be coming in the next couple months. They don't know anything for certain yet.
    - Apparently a new LPTV is coming today.
    - Pyro for the tour is a surprise and he won't confirm if they have it or not.
    - Bill Boyd makes an appearance. He is the band's creative director and works with Joe Hahn to create all the visuals and content we see.
    - He shows off the new tour laminate for the Honda Civic Tour.
    - The band rehearses tonight as we know, with a select LPU audience.

    It was a good chat to get a perspective on the tour from the Production side. He also confirmed a new LPTV should be arriving today, so keep your eyes out for that.

    I always thought that pyros will work great in Linkin Park's concert, I hope they will use some eye-candy fireworks.

    He said he doesn't know about LP's touring plans for 2013 except they will be having a tour. Also, he said some new information about 2012-2013 tour will emerge in coming month.

    If I pay him good enough cash, he'll become my PR manager when I become famous.

    Could the new LPTV be Making Of The LITE Video? :)

    Making of BID video was released before the BID video, I think...

    Does this mean like when they played ''The Radiance'' and played the video of J. Robert Oppenheimer speaking in the background?
