    Linkin Park will be playing Paris, France tonight as their fourth date of the European Tour, following from two shows in Germany, Berlin & Stuttgart, and a third in Linz, Austria.

    The band continue to play the same great set-list and seem to playing some really solid, great shows on this tour. What are your thoughts on the shows so far for those who have attended? How about those of you are following it online from show notes & live video?

    Who's heading to Paris tonight to see the show? We'd love to have you share your experience with us on the boards so feel free to post pictures, videos, setlist details or just tell us how it went! Let's get the discussion going below.

    UPDATE: The band played the same set as usual, with the exception of A Place For My Head which the band played to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hybrid Theory, check out the performance below thanks to youtube member ferrymarco:

    Still hoping that, by December, they'll have added "Robot Boy" to the setlist. :*

    Yeah, I'll be really interested to hear Robot Boy live. I think it will make people like the song a lot more for those who can't get into it, maybe.

    Well, I'm not so sure about the crowd's reaction to the song in live.
    I mean, they really needa perform really good on this or it'll get boring...
    The guys don't seem to move around the stage a lot recently (e.g. Mike's almost always behind the keyboards and Dave's always solid in his position etc.)
    and I think that cuts off some energy in certain songs (WTCFM)

    Then you should see Chester in Linz, Austria...He was jumping all over the stage. And not to mention that he and Mike got down to the crowd.

    People, I haven't seen many videos from the tour so far. How has the crowd interaction been? Is it like the 2009 tour when the band just shut up and played the music?

    Yeah, the band have been pretty energetic IMO. They haven't stopped to talk much between songs though, and yeah, they kinda just play the music.
    About 90 mins give or take.

    Perhaps I was wrong then, because judging from the clips I've seen they still lack a bit, especially in The Catalyst and WTCFM (Mike: keyboards most of the time, Chester: always behind drums)

    this has nothing to do with tonight's show, but I have a quick question:

    when do 'Meet n Greet' passes usually get sorted by? like how many days before the gig?

    pegasusrocks (one of the LPUHQ admins) has been sending the emails out a few days prior to the show, I think.

    I think Robot Boy will suffer the same fate as Hands Held High when it's played live.


    Paris shows are always awesome. Can't wait for some youtube vids.

    I have always loved how the band is always able to do a majority of the instruments live and not resort to it being played on a cd or something like rappers and other performers do. But I think they could take out some since there is so much. I think they could take the drums from chester during wtcfm, and maybe a few more so the band can run around. From the videos i have seen they are always behind something instead of running around on the new songs.

    Just coming back from the show.

    I think this was the exact same setlist than the concerts before, with a nice exception.

    After Crawling, Mike says :
    "Yesterday was a special day"

    He points at some girl in the crowd with a flag "HAPPY BIRTHDAY HYBRID THEORY" and adds "yesterday was the 10th anniversary of our debut album".

    Then, "So we wanted to do something special tonight, something we haven't done in a whiiile. It is kind of unrehearsed, but..."

    And then Brad kicks in with the intro of A Place for my Head (followed of course by the whole song, still as awesome as usual).

    If my memory is correct, it was located between Crawling and One Step Closer. With the exception of that, same setlist as usual.

    People hoping for 'Burning in the Skies' should stop hoping because they probably won't play it. This tour seems to be a one-setlist tour. Sorry to those hoping for BITS
