    Fort Minor has not played a show since 2006. Wow.

    Unless you count the performance on Conan, the last Fort Minor performance was August, 13th at Summer Sonic 2006 in Japan. At that show and most other shows that Fort Minor performed before the hiatus it was Mike with a band, including back up singers and Styles of Beyond helping him out.

    This video is from the day before in Osaka

    Because why not?

    One of the few things we know about tonights show is that it will be Mike 100% solo. Mike has even gone on record calling it his one man show. This guarantees that songs will almost certainly be shortened if he performs songs like Remember The Name, Believe Me and Red to Black. As mentioned, we have no idea what Mike will do at the show but it's sure that he will perform the version of Remember The Name that has been played at the most recent Linkin Park shows, and the new song Welcome will also be played. Mike has mentioned that he would like to perform songs like Cigarettes and Kenji, songs he never performed in the original Fort Minor run.

    Mike has said that he will not tour with Fort Minor right now, so the few shows he will be play will be few, small and hard to get tickets to. So if you have a chance to go to one of the shows, take it. These shows are announced last minute, so make sure you check the our news often.

    Will you be attending the show? Would you go to one of these shows if it were announced near you? What will be played? Come and discuss in our forums.

    It will be interesting to see what Mike decides to play for this show. I imagine a bunch of shortened songs and random verses here and there, etc.

    I could still imagine him doing it, though. He's performed Linkin Park songs as part of Fort Minor sets in the past, in a manner of speaking.

    I can imagine him doing it as well. I think he will mix up parts of songs from Linkin Park and Fort Minor randomly in the set. In recent interviews he has mentioned wanting to play ''Kenji'' and ''Cigarettes'' and both of those tracks feature only him on vocals. There are also some Linkin Park songs that feature only him on vocals that he might be able to pull off. But I still think we will get random verses here and there, etc.
