    On February 21st Linkin Park will begin the New Zealand / Australian leg of the Living Things World Tour by playing a show at the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. In addition to the show they'll also be holding the 8th International LPU Summit for the first time in the country. This will be the second time in the band's career where they have held a tour in AU/NZ, with the first being a nine date run beginning October 11th in 2007 with two shows being played at the same venue the band will play for this show, making this the third time Linkin Park have played in New Zealand, all at the Vector Arena in Auckland.

    Linkin Park haven't been fully on tour since the South American leg that took place in November of last year, with their last tour date being on November 10th in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then the band have made four one-off appearances all in the US: American Music Awards 2012 on November 18th, Video Game Awards 2012 on December 7th, KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas 2012 on December 8th and the latest being a show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 16th 2013.

    The setlist for this tour is currently unknown in regards to which, if any new songs will be played. The band have been teasing I'LL BE GONE & POWERLESS as potential live tracks for some time now, with SKIN TO BONE, ROADS UNTRAVELED & UNTIL IT BREAKS still awaiting their live debut from LIVING THINGS. The show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, NV included a set we've come to expect, with the inclusion of CASTLE OF GLASS which we can expect to be in full rotation for this tour.

    Linkin Park will be hosting the 8th International LPU Summit for LP Underground members on the day of the show, also to be held at the Vector Arena. This will be the first Summit of 2013 and a first for New Zealand fans. The last Summit took place on November 7th 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa. As always with LPU Summits, fans can expect the chance to meet the band, meet other LP fans, take part in a number of activities ranging from auctions, getting the chance for backstage tours, listening in on soundcheck, Q&A's and much more, the only difference being that for the first time ever portions of the LPU Summit will be livestreamed via the LPU!

    Once Linkin Park conclude this show they will be heading to Australia to begin their seven date run of the Soundwave Festival and Sidewave shows, which kicks off February 23rd in Brisbane, Australia at the RNA Showgrounds. You can view all past and future tour dates on the LPA Tour Map.

    Wow! Looks like I'll be able to see it! Holy crap!

    Being in NZ, but stuck in the south island, this just made my day.

    Well the show is over by now. Based on a few reports it looks like it's the same set as Planet Hollywood. Updated in the first post.

    Also, if anyone is interested you can still watch the LPU Summit sound check videos from last night via the link in the news post.

    Yeah the sound check was sick! Makes me wonder, could this be the first official (as in by the band-not a random fan) live streamed sound check in music history? Q&A was fucking hilarious too :lol:

    The Q&A was hilarious. Joe & Chester's 'Michael Bay Phone Call' re-enactment was has me laughing.
    Over the night, I managed to score a setlist, a pick from Phoenix and Adam handed me one of Brad's picks.
    The whole night was stunning, especially when during LOATR/SOTD/Iridescent and everybody lit up the arena with their cellphones.
    Meeting so many other fans was genuinely amazing. Unfortunately, most of them outbid me on auction items haha.
    I got my LIVING THINGS vinyl signed too :)
    So many things to happen in one day, it was too much fun.
