After their explosive show at the Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal on May 30th, Linkin Park return to Russia for two back to back standalone shows in promotion of "The Hunting Party", both shows being opened by "Animal ДжаZ". The first show happens June 1st in Saint Petersburg at the Petrovsky Stadium with Moscow following the very next day on June 2nd. Russia are no strangers to Linkin Park shows of course, with this being the 4th show in just Saint Petersburg, their last being at the SKK Arena on June 14th, 2012. This is their 7th show in Russia all together. Linkin Park first played in Saint Petersburg on June 5th, 2007 as part of their Minutes To Midnight European tour. Not only was that the first show in Saint Petersburg, but in Russia as a whole. With this being the first standalone show on this short European tour, a new setlist is possible, but most likely it will be the same set as in Tuscon, Arizona and Lisbon, Portugal. Not that that setlist is anything to complain about, with some fan favorites and 3 new songs, the Lisbon broadcast showed that the band still has the energy to pull off an aggressive set. If you missed the broadcast of Rock in Rio, check out the start of the show with Guilty All The Same here below.

Thankfully, the fans that got hold of a CD was kind enough to put it up for our enjoyment. Check it out here. After this show, Linkin Park play their second of the two Russia dates, this one being in Moscow on June 2nd, a city with not as many shows, but with some history. Following that the band head to Wroclaw, Poland for a show on June 5th. View all upcoming tour dates on the LPA Tour Page. Are you going to the show in Saint Petersburg?
