The final show of the tour! Birmingham, welcome Linkin Park back! Birmingham is a city that has a limited experience with the band, having only hosted two earlier performances for the band throughout the years. The first time came in 2003 when they played a November show. The setlist was pretty standard for 2003, however also including songs like Nobody’s Listening and It’s Goin Down. Nobody’s Listening was also extended and Mike rapped a verse from the LPU released song Standing In the Middle. After a seven year long break from the city, the band returned in 2010 for another November show, promoting A Thousand Suns at the time. The setlist featured some special surprises that might sound familiar… Mike rapped Reading My Eyes” over Bleed It Out, and during the bridge he rapped A Place For My Head. It also featured a fan going on stage to play guitar during Crawling. Man... what a tour it’s been! The band started the tour of on June 9th but it sure doesn’t feel like it. This tour has had no shows that were identical to the previous one, with changes being made to the set list on a nightly basis. Whether it was minor or major changes, something always changed. We got a permanent rotating spot, switching between Somewhere I Belong, From the Inside, Points of Authority, and A Place for My Head. In the longer festival shows we got a rotating spot consisting of Battle Symphony or Nobody Can Save Me. Mike rapped some different verses over the outro of Castle of Glass, switching between A Light That Never Comes, A Place for My Head, It's Goin Down, and Petrified. On random they would just switch Faint and Bleed It Out as the closing song. These changes has been very welcome, so to not make the setlist stale and same-y. During headlining shows they would also do exclusive performances of a stripped down version of Sharp Edges, consisting only of Chester and Brad, both playing guitar with Chester singing the song. The latest performance the band did was in Brixton, and holy crap was it crazy. Stormzy came out and killed it on Good Goodbye. Points of Authority and A Place for My Head in the now TWO “nu-metal” rotating spots, Jon Green playing guitar on Nobody Can Save Me, crowd rapping the first verse acapella of In the End. Bleed It Out moved up in the set and closing the main set. Reading My Eyes rapped over the bridge of Bleed It Out, balloons dropped during Faint... kinda pissed I had to miss it! What will the band do tonight then? Will they keep with the super extended set? Will they go back to the “normal” headlining set? Honestly, at this point we don’t know. For Birmingham’s sake I hope that they get the same long set as the two previous shows. Considering that they don’t have an opener, it would make the most sense. But then the question is, what will be in the rotating spots?! We learned earlier in the tour that you can’t properly predict that the band will switch the songs like A-B-C, they do what they feel like in the day, so it’s more like A-Q-H for them. But I’m guessing It's Goin Down for the Castle of Glass outro, Battle Symphony for that spot, From the Inside for the first “nu-metal” spot, A Place for My Head for the second one, and Bleed It Out closing the show. Even if I’m wrong, it’s sure to be a fantastic show. Let’s also hope that Stormzy once again comes out on Good Goodbye, MAYBE even Jon Green on Nobody Can Save Me. After this... nothing. The band takes 21 well deserved days off from tour before kicking off the US leg of the tour on July 27. Are you going to the show? Well...
