    Linkin Park are among the acts scheduled to perform in Los Angeles at this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, which airs on MTV at 9 PM ET/PT. The location of their performance is a big secret but some small details have been revealed via MTV:

    • Decided on a location that is "certifiably epic"
    • Thought of iconic films from the '50s and youth culture and this specific location became first and foremost
    • Location matches the soaring soundscapes from "The Catalyst" and will provide plenty of breath taking and eye-popping aerial shots
    Can anyone guess where Linkin Park will be performing their hit song "The Catalyst"? Make sure to tune in this Sunday at 9 PM to find out!

    Update: Despite initial beliefs that the performance would be at the site of the world famous Hollywood Sign, forum member rcm034 found this on the website for the Griffith Observatory:

    Sunday, September 12, 2010
    OBSERVATORY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC all day. All Observatory roads, sidewalks, and trails close at 12:00 noon. The Observatory is hosting a special event. We regret any inconvenience.


    Great find, rcm!

    Hence why it will be there. They said it would be "epic", involve "many aerial shots", a "thoroughly iconic place", the location "matches the soaring soundscape of the song".

    It's really not difficult. =/

    Lol I know, I'm just a little annoyed with MTV, making it sound like a really difficult thing to figure out.

    Oh lol. Yeah, MTV seems to think that its "viewers" are over-simplified idiots. Hence all the stupid reality shows that only appeal to those who really have nothing going on in their minds.

    Hopefully they perform Iridescent and When They Come for Me also, Mike did say that they'd be playing more than one song.

    I think the best thing to hope for is a live broadcast of The Catalyst on MTV the station and that they other songs will pop up online at MTV.com

    The first thought that came to my mind was Jornada del Muerto, but i dont know how epic the place looks
    The Hollywood sign sounds suitably epic
    Ill jus keep my fingers crossed and hope its," IN THE FUCKING SKY."

    Edit: I dont know how iconic Jornada del Muerto is either
