    Very, very cool. I've been pretty crazy over the lighting of this tour, was awesome to see some backstage stuff about it.

    I have a friend who works in lighting and tells me everything that is done, so I do have an idea of what's included to setting up a light show.

    Pretty awesome, I love researching stuff like this. :)

    Also, things like this should get people to stop complaining about the "Meeting of 'A Thousand Suns" DVD and it's lack of documentary about songs. Take into account how much technical info we've been given for the entire album process, and for free and you'll see that together it's greater than a Making of DVD.

    ===Though I admit it would be nice to have one but I just don't see the point in complaining given all that has been put out already.

    Was waiting for someone to bring this up. What he was talking about was during the first verse of The Catalyst, Mike actually syncs up with the video that's playing behind him. The video blends into Mike in real time.

    I'm pretty sure that Linkin Park do use playback on Waiting For The End on the OHHS and on I'm sure they do it for the gang vocals on Iridescent.
