    A7X should be above Green Day on the poster...

    This was my first thought when I saw the poster.

    Let's hope that it won't happen to LP...

    That would look terrible on the poster, because GD's logo is smaller than the A7x one. It'd look weird.

    He is saying that A7X should be above Green Day because they're bigger band... which is totally not true. A7X may be big in the metal world right now, but Green Day is way more popular overall.

    Doubt it will though.
    LP's stable fanbase is more than enough to ensure that doesn't happen.

    Green Day = Larger fan base = More tickets sold = More money.

    Not bad, coming off this year's unbeatable lineup. Hope there's no hate at Chester from STP fans when they're performing.

    I doubt STP fans would go to a show where the singer is someone they "hate". However since STP will apparently support one of the main bands, issue could be of those "neutrals" who went to see the main act and happen to like some STP favoring Weiland's voice.

    But seeing the shows that they played so far I don't see a reason to hate, Chester has nailed the songs and it should be a guarantee to have a good time there, I'm hoping for the best. Also the EP could be out by then, it should be exciting.

    I wonder if these show the STP in 2014 will hinder the release of the new album of the LP, and may hamper the dissemination of release, Chester should move away from the STP next year

    Why? The only sure thing is that probably LP6 music won't come in january or february, but that doesn't mean STP is interferering with Linkin Park. It's been pointed out multiple times..

    Stone Temple Pilots will NOT interfere with LP. To Chester, the band is PRIORITY.

    One would think people would've read this by now.

    From the acts announced so far, and the estimated cost of a ticket, it's not worth it just yet. As long as a couple of sideshows are announced for RFTC and maybe a couple for STP, I see no reason to go to next year's Soundwave.

    THIS.

    People need to read the link she just posted. And then read it one more time just to get it through their heads.

    Linkin Park is Chester's top priority. He will NEVER put another band before Linkin Park. He said this with DBS and he's reiterated it with STP. Linkin Park will always be his true passion and his number one band.

    Don't really get why we keep coming back to that. You'd think everyone would have read it by now.
    In another article, Chester had stated that he likes and admires STP but he is in love with Linkin Park.
    Plus, LP is literally his family now. Those guys are close friends so in no way will he ditch LP for another.
