It would be cool if they did do Pretend To Be live, but they don't play unreleased stuff live
Would be really cool if they performed Burning in the skies or Blackout.
Unless you count Reading My Eyes, in some weird way.
Man, now I want them to start playing And One again so they have something from them being Hybrid Theory days, and ...
It looks like the set list has already been revealed:
Blackout is a must have! I really hope they play this song! It would be awesome if Chester had the crowd scream during the vocal-remix part live. Burning In The Skies is also a must-have.
That would sound like the worst echo effect in any audio mixing software.
Chester: I say bla-bla-bla-blackout-blackout blood in your eyes, you say bla-bla-bla-bla-bloody-bloody-bla-in your eyes! BLA-BLA-BLA-BLACKOUT-BLACKOUT BLOOD IN YOUR EYES.
Crowd: ASLFKJSDFKLAJWEOIJTRT'LKJADS'FOISJDFK'LAJSDF EYES EYES EYES!
Look at the setlist for Projekt Rev 2004. Out of the 19-20 songs played on that tour, Chester screamed in nea all of them (Save for ITE and Numb, and I suppose the Hip-Hop Medley).
Of course there's always the "he's getting older, cannot scream anymorez" argument. Or the fact that he himself said that he doesn't want to scream anymore, but still: it was possible then, he should still be able to pull it off now.
Although I really don't know whether I want to see Blackout live. The bridge will either be atrocious and ruin the song, or make the song that much better live. Personally, I think they should come with an original version of the bridge for the live setting; something a little less complicated.
Just my two cents.
Solution: They could stop playing Given Up. I hate when they play it. It's such an average song.
EDIT: It appears LPL found the setlist. *Spoiler* it's the same as Brazil.
All true, but I consider Blackout to be on a far higher level of screaming than say Given Up or One Step Closer. Plus the older/"I don't want to scream anymore" thing.

That's the show. Today's show. As of late, it seems that the recent shows have been lacking in audience numbers.
Today as in Berlin's October 20th show today?
Stage is HUGE
Looked and sounded good, shame theres no Blackout or somewhere i belong
I never found Somewhere I Belong performed live to do the studio version justice - guitars are just not as heavy/full-sounding.
OSC yes but Given Up? Not really. If anything, GU takes more energy. The chorus is a bit longer and the bridge requires the long screaming note.
I just imagine that Chester's developed his voice to those songs now, as we heard in his flawless performance of Given Up in Argentina. Or was it Brazil? Either way. Although they are screams, they are more ... structured/planned/something else like that, as opposed to Blackout's "losing his mind" screaming. I don't think I know how to word what I'm saying concerning that, but he's definitely had practice singing those songs with the aggression as opposed to never having performed (at least not to an audience) a song with screaming that really is just pure screaming.
Check out lp's facebook guys
see everyones thinking blackout is some impossible insane scream song but if you think about it most of it is just aggressive singing that is just like old OSC crunchy sounding chester. He doesn't actually scream out the lyrics but more like an aggressive tone with screams every once in a while. I highly doubt it can possibly be harder than pulling off the given up bridge which is just about impossible
