I saw them for the first time 9 years ago today on July 4th in Michigan...Summer Sanitarium. It was an awesome show.
HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED PICTUREBOARD YET?
The cycle repeated as explosions broke in the sky
all that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find
And you were there at the turn waiting to let me know
We're building it up to break it back down
We're building it up to burn it down
We can't wait to burn it to the ground
The colors conflicted as the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this but couldn't stop from tearing it down
And you were there at the turn caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn waiting to let you know
You told me yes you held me high And I believed when you told that lie
I played that soldier you played king And struck me down when I kissed that ring
You lost that right to hold that crown I built you up but you let me down
so when you fall I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn
October 10th, 2010. SWU Festival. Itu. São Paulo.

I got two tickets through the Share To Earn program (being in the top 100). What was crazy for me was I didn't know for sure if my friend, Matt, and I would get in or not. I had to drive ~ 1 hour to get to LA, and my friend was late since he also had to drive 1 hour+ from UC Berkeley during heavy traffic. All of this was for a slim chance for us to get in because I received no confirmation emails before I had left my house. We finally met at my friend's house and drove to LA (Matt wanted to drive his rental car so I didn't have to waste my gas). We got there just a bit earlier than 7:00 P.M. hearing the door opens at 7:30 P.M. After eating some hamburgers at a fast-food place, we rushed to the entrance.
The line was super packed. I had never seen any line like this before. It took us an hour plus to get to the gate. I had a chance to meet up another LPA member, iamsatan, and it was pretty cool. I was so afraid at the gate with a thought if they don't let us in then all this waiting would be for nothing. But luckily, the lady at the gate asked for my name, punched it in, and I saw it popped up on her iPhone! My friend and I was so happy to go through the gate with the people there giving us the wristbands and the awesome tickets (they were holographic tickets too!).
Then after a bit of some more waiting, the band came out opening with TINFOIL, and I could feel the energy in the small and intimate venue. Then Faint started and everyone was jumping like crazy. We didn't go there that early so we had to stand all the way in the back. There was this one lady behind us that didn't want to get stepped on so she kept pushing us back. I didn't care much and kept rocking out with LP on all the songs. I could sometimes see Mike and Chester looking at my direction and thought they were singing to me! It was so intimate and cool My legs somehow didn't feel tired so I kept jumping and jumping with my fists up high on the air. I moved around a bit to get a better view of the band. The whole place was shaking, and I was also from the inside I was finally able to see them and better yet for free with my friend The show ended with the fantastic BIO/Sabotage mash-up.
I was so happy that I got this chance to see LP live, and it was one of the greatest moments ever. I hope to see them again in the future. After that show, I even got my friend Matt to check out LP stuff again. He wasn't a hardcore LP fan since the ATS release, but he seemed amazed after seeing LP live.
To summarize this post, I had a blast in my first and only (so far) LP show. Definitely would like to see them more in the future since they seem to put out such amazing live shows every time. Thank you, Linkin Park.
Stop reminding me that I never went to one yet! lol

Best Buy Theatre (NYC) in 2010, it was a small venue, very good performance it was on the ATS release day (US) It was also the show Wretches and Kings debuted. It was the second show I went to in my life. The first being DBS in NYC in 2009. I couldn't make the show in 2008 unfortunately, and I wasn't a 'fan' until late 2007.
Very good performances. I was shouting and jumping the entire time haha! Was awesome.
DBS 2009 (The joke he made was really funny haha, to me at least)
July 22, 2008 - Projekt Revolution 2008 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

My first real show was the 2004 Meteora World Tour, Sacramento. After (still being a teenager) nearly passing out during the meet and greet, the band went to play a spectacular show. Mike and Chester really felt like talking to the crowd and cracking jokes that night. They brought someone up to play Faint like they did a lot in those days. They played Breaking the Habit and that was totally my song back then. That also would have been when playing that song was a new thing and I wasn't quite expecting it. Chester didn't have his eye surgery yet. It was also my first show. I am so bummed there are no existing recordings of it.

The LPA has a wiki
I unfortunately missed the tickets for the UK ATS Tour concert i could go to last year. But I'll definitely will be seeing them this year! Can't fucking wait, and I get early tickets from the LPU so.. Will be going!

I've been to 11 LP shows and a couple of DBS shows, plus a FM show, and my first LP show was probably the best. My first show was at Bamboozle in NJ in May of 2007. I got a meet and greet for that show and got my original HTEP signed by the entire band, and the band was really cool and talked to me and took pictures, etc. The show was also fucking amazing. It was before MTM came out and they played Runaway for the only time on the entire MTM/ATS tour at this show, it was also Chester's son Tyler's first LP show. Pretty awesome. I had a lot of fun. This was also the only LP show I have been to that I actually got knocked down at, during Faint. I even lost my shoe, but surprisingly found it after the show.

Been to 14 LP shows, 2 DBS shows and 1 FM show, and still going.
My LP first concert was in 2003 with Metallica. Best show ever. Nothing can top that.
