    Doubtful.. It's probably going to be a one-off for Download, and besides, Rock am Ring will be BEFORE the Download Festival, so I would really doubt they'll play HT in full first in Germany than in the UK where it was originally announced.

    I know, I know... But part of me still believes that it will happen.

    That's good news as I'll be there probably. However, I hope they'll improve compared to 2012.. that show was just disappointing. And people in the Rock am Ring-Forums aren't that excited about them. Some are even kind of angry

    People being angry about Linkin Park? No. That can't be true.

    It's been so since 2007. 95% of the "rock fanbase" that share taste for bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden will say Linkin Park sucks, and I'm being generous with that percentage.

    But them saying so won't make LP any less of a huge act they are nowadays and that's why festivals still book them as headliners. Other bands fade and become supporting acts, but not LP.

    Yep. There is a large group of fans who felt betrayed by Linkin Park when LP managed to cut the Nu-Metal ties. Not everyone learned to grow with the band. It's not an easy thing to do.

    The "this band sucks" sentiment was a regular voiced occurrence in Australia during the Soundwave shows by Metallica fans. However, after the tour, LP were considered one of the highlights of Soundwave and were lauded for their performances.

    I don’t think it’s because of their latest releases. In 2012, they played a setlist with lots of HT and Meteora-Songs. People were more like: Yeah, the setlist was okay, but the performance was MEH. If you’re headlining Rock am Ring you can’t just go out there, play your hits, don’t interact with your fans, don’t move and look as if you’re fucking bored. I mean, that’s Rock am Ring. Every musician would love to play there. People pay a lot of money to be there. In 2004 and 2007 they were like: WHATS UP WERE LINKIN PARK AND WE GOT BALLS, WE’RE THE BEST FUCKIN BAND IN THE WORLD. And in 2012 they were like: Man, Rock am Ring again? That’s boring, let’s play the oldies and get the fuck out of here. That’s the problem with their concerts recently. I’ve also seen them during the ATS world tour and it was the same. 2007 was a huuuuge difference.

    Understandable. 2007 was their comeback.

    Linkin Park's performance at Rock Am Ring was solid. Maybe not up to par with their 2004 or 2007 shows, but the band was still on point. They're opening with A Place For My Head was simply amazing and the perfect start to their set.

    I agree. Relatively speaking, I thought 2012 was a pretty strong year for their live performances.

    This is not about Rock Am Ring, and I didn't know where to post it, but they've announced couple of bands for Nova Rock in Austria, and there are just two headliners so far but festival lasts 3 days. Do you guys think that LP might play there? It's either them or Metallica IMO...

    No. They will play on Download Festival June 14. I don't think they will have the time to play Nova the day after.
