    Tomorrow Linkin Park will play the second show of their international Summer Tour which began yesterday at Lisbon, Portugal at the Rock in Rio Festival. The performance which will take place at the Megaland in Landgraaf, Netherlands will be Linkin Park's 4th time playing in the Netherlands and 2nd time playing the Pinkpop Festival following a performance on May 28th, 2007. This would have been the band's third time at this festival; however an appearance scheduled in 2003 was canceled.

    The band are coming off a firecracker show in Lisbon, Portugal at the Rock In Rio Festival on May 26th, where they debuted an energetic new set that kept fans on their toes and brought back several Hybrid Theory classics that made the show very energetic from start to finish. The set was very well received by fans with a number of notable highlights including the first ever live performance of LIES GREED MISERY (which debuted on radio two days ago) as well as a new opener that put fan favorite A Place For My Head next to the band's other hard rock hits "Given Up", "Faint", "With You" and "Runaway" (as well as many more).

    During the promotional period for LIVING THINGS the band has stated on numerous occasions that they wish to return to energetic setlists, and to bring more excitement into their live shows. With this new setlist, it certainly seems the band is keeping true on that promise, and it will be curious to see what will happen after the June 26th release of LIVING THINGS, when several high energy songs from the album will be introduced into the Honda Civic tour setlists. Will we see even more live debuts before LIVING THINGS' release, or will the future setlists remain similar to this one? Only time will tell.

    After this show the band will head to Skive, Denmark to play the Skive Festival on Wednesday, May 30th.

    There are number of ways to watch the live stream for Pinkpop tonight, but whether Linkin Park's performance will air is unknown as it isn't listed in some schedules. Also, some streams require you to be in the Netherlands to watch unfortunately. View the time Linkin Park will perform and broadcast links below. We'll keep you updated as to whether it's going to air.

    Update: Cultura24 have stated they are trying to get permission to broacast Linkin Park and they will keep us updated via @Cultura24 @3voor12

    Update: According to @3voor12 on Twitter, it seems Cultura24 couldn't secure permission to live stream the performance and most likely won't be happening unfortunately.

    9:15PM CEST | 8:15PM BST | 3:15PM EDT | 12:15PM PDT

    Wow, the mixing on that performance was awful. :lol:

    Hopefully we'll get a better recording with a proper mix.

    Here is the link to the full concert in proshot:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1_O3fr74N4&feature=related

    LGM sounded really good live and I was playing it really loud in my home theater system and it sounded even more incredible. Chester's voice is really clear. I don't know what's the deal with the other video, but it doesn't sound as good. As for the concert itself, it was loaded with old songs which was great. But I felt the middle part of the show dragged a bit. They need to remove Crawling from the set because Chester cannot sing the song like it was recorded. Other than that, a very good show and the band sounded really good.

    It's nice to see that they still can play their old songs so well!
    But i have to admit that this setlist has too much meteora, u could easily find some better songs, that could get the crowd wild from their newer albums, like Wretches and kings, when they come for me, no more sorrow anything (haven't seen the full show yet through) And why do they stil play songs like Crawling, Chester can barely hit the notes in that song, it doesn't sound close to the actual song, so just cut it off the setlist already, and Runaway is a fucking terrible written song, Forgotten/By myself/OSC > Runaway

    I'm loving the guitar in the chorus. It's incredible that they're going to back up such a huge performance last night with another one tonight.
