S.O.B. shows

February 4, 2008

i’ve had the flu for the last few days. it’s been nasty. i almost went to the emergency room, but my fever broke and now i feel better.

enough about me. i haven’t mentioned anything about STYLES OF BEYOND in a while, since they’ve been in the studio finishing their record. they were almost done a few months ago, but decided to go back and tweak a few things and add a couple songs. i think it was a really smart move…the album sounds amazing.

now that the record is pretty much done, and the guys are starting to put some shows together. here are three so far:

2/15 – Crash Mansion – Downtown, LA
Doors at 8:30PM

3/22 – In The Venue for “Spring Fling” – Salt Lake City, UT
Doors at 8PM

4/25 – University of Buffalo – Buffalo, NY

for all you fort minor fans out there, go check them out. tickets won’t cost too much, and you’re guaranteed a good time, especially if you catch the guys at the bar afterward. go and tell them i said “hi.”

    I’m glad you feel better 😉 ♥You’re the best♥ I want to ask you one question…Can LP come to Lithuania?I know that you’ve got lots of emails with that question…But I know that there are lots of fans who can’t go to Poland or something like that (just like me) ….I think that you have heart and you’ll understand me…..My dream is to see Linkin Park alive….Every morning I woke up with hope that I’ll see your concert…I know that there you won’t get a lot of money, but you’ll do a very good thing to us (lithuanian LP fans)…I hope my dream will come true……P.S I love you and Linkin Park♥
    let me know the answer: AjsToOtEa@gmail.com

  12. shinoda_me on February 7, 2008 at 6:12 am

    awwwww…. Mikey i’d have been so glad to get the LPflu … if only u spat on my head 😀
    i’d have ANNOUNCED it to the whole world …. whether ppl want to know it or not is their problem!
    i hope u’re feeling GOOD now
    .. (spitting all over stage is a bad idea … though spitting on fans who wanna be spat on is great! … yea … me 😛 )

  13. littlemichelle on February 7, 2008 at 5:07 am

    Am I the only one who didn’t get LPflu? Well at least you are all far away from me so I can’t catch it.

    And see what happens to you Mike when you spit on fans heads, serves you right, keep your saliva to yourself next time cause we don’t want it. Oh and other thing why you probably got it because you all seemed to spitting all over on the stage, you all trying to play a game up there trying to tag each other with your spit! Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  14. shinoda2202 on February 7, 2008 at 4:33 am

    mike, take good care of yourself.. gotta go xx


  15. hit_n_run_me on February 7, 2008 at 2:49 am

    Did this illness mean you didn’t get time to vote for the elections then? Can I ask who you voted for?

  16. Helene on February 7, 2008 at 2:44 am

    poor you:) half of my school is sick even teachers (usually they never get a flu). and my class was the only class where everybody was ok. but now.. our class is sick too 😦 it’s sucks to sit at home when i got nothing to do. at least i can listen LP and SOB 🙂 have a nice day. greetings from esonia.

    you should go to hospital just for precaution =)

    Well i would love go to SOB show, but i can’t. I have an idea, next time LP come to Brazil, bring SOB too lol
    that would be very great we all can drink “caipirinha” after the show –

    Whens the next FM album coming, were lookin forward to it 😀

  49. vdo21 on February 5, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    mike, i hope you get better. i had the flu a couple days before x-mas and it was pretty bad. i fainted when i was in the bathroom and i felt like i was hallucinating. not so fun. i can’t wait for the new SOB album to drop. later man. take it easy.

  50. bec on February 5, 2008 at 4:32 pm

    an utterly fantabulous idea…though Rob may smell too yummy and get eaten by scary fans at the M&G

  51. Cheryl_PTT on February 5, 2008 at 4:25 pm

    ohh thats a fabulous idea…

    Can it come in different scents and smells…


    Strawberry delight
    & mosh pit musk

  52. bec on February 5, 2008 at 4:22 pm


    Please make Rob become a hair model….please – I’m sure all your crazy fans would buy Linkin Park shampoo. you could market it as medicated for avoiding flu as a result of being spat on in mosh pits

  53. Cheryl_PTT on February 5, 2008 at 4:16 pm

    its magical isnt it….

    awwww…. Loreal for Men!

  54. bec on February 5, 2008 at 4:15 pm

    Ooo look at his ‘just been sh*gged’ hair blowing in the aircon.

  55. Cheryl_PTT on February 5, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    In reference to our other comments earlier

    Where we left off about a certain drummers hair… (its taken us that long to find somewhere that actually will upload this vid haha youtube sucks today)

    We’re curious is Rob getting ready for Loreal Commercial?

    Rob Bourdon – Because I’m worth it… we can just see him now on the bill boards and tv…
    For the preview of the commercial see here

  56. TaylorKenjiLP on February 5, 2008 at 3:16 pm


    1st: SOB’s Second To None is on the movie trailor for You Dont Mess With The Zohan. is there something im missing? or does nobody know about it yet? i figured it at least deserve a post.

    2nd: mike, you should get a “Remember Me” box so i dont have to sign in everytime i wanna comment

    3rd: i heard Given Up on the radio this morning for the first time. =D

  57. Doggie24690 on February 5, 2008 at 1:43 pm

    Awww, feel better Mike. Hopefully you’ll be all ready for the US Tour and not feel like shit the whole time. Anyways, I’m glad to hear SOB are starting to tour again. I missed them at PR. Can’t wait for the album! …feel better!

  58. LPgreatfan on February 5, 2008 at 1:40 pm

    i’m glad you are better Mike!! Get well as soon as possible!!! 😉

  59. lpfan07 on February 5, 2008 at 12:36 pm

    get better mike!!!! wish you came to Florida 😦 but maybe sooner or later 😀

  60. Xecutioner on February 5, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    If you want to laugh.look at this:http://youtube.com/watch?v=ETOHnTEb5bc

  61. Daga280 on February 5, 2008 at 12:17 pm

  62. nillp on February 5, 2008 at 12:09 pm

    hope u’r feeling better than yesterday.. 🙂

  63. Xecutioner on February 5, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    First, good times improvement. You have some years earlier a very great song made with X-ecutioner( it´s going down).It would be possible to do it again?
    That would be pretty cool. An answer would be very nice.

  64. merve on February 5, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    hey,its good to hear you’r better now.take some antibiotic and vitamin pills and get some rest..thats all!! ((hmm..if i were you,i would stay in my bed and read my comments all day!!:D ))by the way.dont give ur viruses to the rest of the band((espesially to chester!))i think Twix is right,its the flu season:)my sister and some of my friend r sick!!i just try to protect myself!!!

  65. Madlen on February 5, 2008 at 11:50 am

  66. keineAhnung on February 5, 2008 at 11:44 am

    oh no! poor you! tg you’re better now!

    @sob: DAMN!!! I (and I know some people who’d kill to be at one of their shows) would love to go and see them, but as I live in Europe…

    anyway, good luck to the guys and @ryu: DON’T FEAR THE BEER!!! ;p

    and of course good luck to you guys too for the u.s. tour

  67. twix on February 5, 2008 at 11:35 am

    I guess it’s the flu season. My best friend was sick and I was super sick 2 weeks ago too, I couldn’t get out of bed. Luckily, not bad enough to go to ER too. 🙂


  68. Melk on February 5, 2008 at 11:32 am

    Luckily that I do not have flu but check I have the cold thus it is not better… Cure fast all your fans wait for an energetic return!!! Take care of you, Mike…
    One fan French.

  69. Gazza92LP on February 5, 2008 at 11:26 am

    hello Mike!!!! I want to ask to you: why you don’t know why? (text “in the end”) xD bye!!

  70. MusicalMorphine on February 5, 2008 at 10:57 am

    It seems to be going around. I’vve been sick for the past few days too. So much for not missing class this year whoops. LP show added to that to that but um lets see, LP show or college? Tough choice!

  71. Jon on February 5, 2008 at 10:29 am

    Mike – lemon chicken, duck, hot lemon and honey tea and a bucket of weenies. Nip to the shops and purchase them. Then give them to me and go back home to mope about being ill. 😦

    Not really, but those are good foods to eatsa and Star Wars will guide you further.

  72. Daga280 on February 5, 2008 at 10:06 am

    YES Mike-my friend CUZ have right-drink lots of fresh lemon and onion juice and wear warm clothes-it always helps 🙂

  73. Sabie on February 5, 2008 at 9:58 am

    Hey, Mike!!! We don’t want you to be ill, ever!!! We love you too much, and hope you are better now!
    Kazakh fan, Sabina

  74. yohannaaaa on February 5, 2008 at 9:54 am

    I’ve got the flu too, it’s just terrible…
    I hope you feel better anyways!
    Take care , Mike!

  75. cuz on February 5, 2008 at 9:53 am

    Mike, take care of you. Good to hear you feeling better now. And remember, when you have a flu, squeeze an onion’s juice and add sugar. Eat it until you feel better. That will help 😉 Love you, come back to POLAND soon!

  76. Reanimated89 on February 5, 2008 at 9:49 am

    i’m glad you’re better now, Mike… 🙂

  77. bec on February 5, 2008 at 9:43 am

    yes the drummerboy!

    We can’t let him catch LPflu – no one wants to him ‘shinoda shifting’ behind the drums! What if he does something drastic and cuts off all his hair!!!!

  78. Cheryl_PTT on February 5, 2008 at 9:40 am

    Oh no! not the drummerboy!!!!!!

  79. bec on February 5, 2008 at 9:37 am

    Daga280: I’m always nice, especially to Mike cough

    NILLP: control yourself, he had flu…probably manflu – I’m pretty sure he’s okay now, sat at home surfing Youtube, and not infecting anymore people with his evil germs…I do hope he didn’t spit on the pretty drummerboy!

  80. nillp on February 5, 2008 at 9:29 am

    you probably shaked some infected hand at m&g.. poor u.. :

  81. Daga280 on February 5, 2008 at 9:28 am

    hahaaha U wrote it in nice way Bec 😉 ‘considering where some of those girls were grabbing hold of him, I guess a little spitting was the last thing on Mike’s mind.’ nothin’ to add xD

  82. Cheryl_PTT on February 5, 2008 at 9:28 am

    the shinoda string of the flu virus also includes the leg lifting condition otherwise known as ‘shinoda shifting’ which the first recorded occurrence of this virus mike shinoda claimed it was how he danced.

    there is currently no cure

  83. Cheryl_PTT on February 5, 2008 at 9:27 am


    the shinoda flu virus is a new epidemic spreading across the uk, hundreds maybe thousands are being affected as it spreads further as the lp fans go back to their day to day lives.

    he lpflu as it is has become known also appears to affect peoples abilities to use punctuation and capital letters where appropriate in sentences

  84. Jon on February 5, 2008 at 9:17 am

    You’ve given flu to everyone you hussie. Ah well, at least it proves that I was nowhere near you on the night in question. I am right as rain without a sign of herp.

    SOB album return!!! WOW

  85. Nici1101 on February 5, 2008 at 8:59 am

    Hi Mike! Nice that youre feeling any better ( I take my Zink then ever- it helps :)!! And I think its good that you help so a little bit Styles of Byond-its great, but alas- I live too far away. Good luck and good gigs for the guys!!!

    I miss LP soooooo much!! Have all nice times there!!! Nici

  86. bec on February 5, 2008 at 8:52 am

    I wouldn’t want anyone (including Mike) spitting in my hair!

    Though, considering where some of those girls were grabbing hold of him, I guess a little spitting was the last thing on Mike’s mind.

  87. Daga280 on February 5, 2008 at 8:48 am

    Bec>> nice picts;) and about Mike’s saliva-he spit it out diggin’ dipper just to throw it (flu) away ^^ hahaha dont think those girls felt poor 😉 hahah

    its soo wierd-everyone have flu since U wrote about it 😉 hahaha

  88. Helios_LP on February 5, 2008 at 8:27 am

    Hey Mike I hope your feeling better now.
    I have the flu too lol.
    Get Well soon and drink lots of orange juice and chicken soup. 🙂

  92. bec on February 5, 2008 at 7:53 am

    LMFAO at Cheryl’s pic.


    Mike, you really should have seen that moment – I cracked up laughing as a whole string of saliva fell from your mouth and onto the poor girl’s head below you.

    Cheryl also took this, moments later – I think you’re trying to lick the drool from your chin

  93. Fishgoingwest on February 5, 2008 at 7:29 am

    I’ve got a little problem…on some web in our country (Czech republic) there’s a message about your concert in July, but we don’t know if it’s true, so can you tell us something about it? thanks a lot 🙂

    In reference to Bec’s message before about you spitting on the crowd!
    I’ve been ill for the past week (lost a whole weekend!!!)
    And we believe we have found when you either infected the crowd or received the yukky flu

    Thursday 24th Jan – Nottingham Arena – during the end of a place for my head (am at work so couldnt upload it to You Tube but have a nice video of you haha….

    Hey Mike ! Good to know you’re feeling better 🙂
    As for SOB, I’d definitely go if I lived in the US 😦 Hope there will be tons of people !!!

    Take care boy,

  120. Fishgoingwest on February 5, 2008 at 2:53 am

    I feel so sorry to hear that!Fortunately,you feel better now and are able to write something to us again.

    I used to think that you’re just doing some personal bussiness at home and forget to update.Oh,I should have thought about illness.

    I’ve just recovered from a flu,it’s not so serious,but it’s terrible enough!

    I can hardly think that how serious flu could make you might go to emergency room.

    Please take care and health is always the most important thing.Maybe you should have a good rest,but I’m afraid that LP’s tour won’t let it be.

    You know that your birthday is approaching,none of us want to see a sick Mike on Feb.11th.

    Do take care!! I hope you recover soon.

  121. bec on February 5, 2008 at 1:56 am

    I was begining to wonder if you’d got lost on your way home – 5 days and no youtube links!

    I think you must have been suffering from LPflu – this is something suffered by most UK fans that do the full tour – I’d say you probably caught it from one of us but no, I’M GONNA BLAME YOU FOR SPITTING ON THE CROWD AND MAKING US ALL SICK!!!!

    I hope you’re feeling better – I’m still sick.

  122. Mickey on February 5, 2008 at 1:55 am

    Hey Mike. I was wondering why you hadn’t posted anything for a while. Glad to hear, you’re doing better, though. I got a cold/flu-thing a week before I went to Germany to see the LP show. Luckily, I felt better when I left (not that a flu would’ve kept me away.) and the whole time there, I was fine. When I came home, it came back with a vengance, though and I’ve been sick since. Am just getting over it now, and will be ready for work tomorrow night. Have fun on the US tour…and if you get extremely bored and decide to surf the interweb, check this out http://linkinparkville.proboards106.com/index.cgi

  123. Umi on February 5, 2008 at 1:34 am

    damn, there’s nothing worse way to spend ur rare freetime with being sick >.<
    thx god ur better now – take care of u during the next days before the shows start, so ur in top form then 🙂

    edit: funny, everyone suddenly starts to talk about their own sicknesses… i feel kinda out of place, cause i can’t join them lol reminds me of the friends of my grandma… when the old ladies meet, everyone starts to talk about medication and doctors and stuff… ‘yeah, me too’ ‘take this and this, it will help’… XD

  124. Jaclyn on February 5, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Hey Mikey! Glad to hear you’re getting better! Take rest, keep smiling and read our greetings – sending you lots of our honey 😉 For the best result do it 24/7 😀 Hope SOB come to Russia as well as FM and LP….and DBS =))) Hugs’n’kisses

  125. leimomi on February 4, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    Hey Mike,

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better. While I was teaching today I felt like I was coming down with something. The whole bodyache thing doesn’t do well while you have a classroom full of students. Anyhow, I took a couple of Tylenols and an Airborne. I even worked out today. Crazy!

    I’m really looking forward to your Staples show next month. Just wondering if other dates in L.A. or other nearby areas will be a possiblity for near future shows. Saw you guys @ the Key Club & had lots of fun!

    I’ll be checking out the bio info of your family history soon at the JANM when I take my class for a field trip. That’s one of the things I’ve been wanting to do.


  126. DaniShinoda on February 4, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    Oww Mike, I knew you are not well, I dont know why. I just filling this. But you must rest so much till your birthday (IS COMING!!!) and your show on Feb 12.
    Please go to the doctor and take the right medicaments, I take care of you these days now!
    PLEASE, SEND NEWS OF YOUR HEALTH FOR US! I’ll stay worried with you.
    tomorrow I’ll listened the SOB song because now I’m worried. 😦

    Eat good things a lot!!! Take care and if you need os a help, Im here EVER. 🙂

  127. Erica on February 4, 2008 at 9:37 pm

    take care~おだいじに〜and 注意身体 啊~ ha ha
    Feb. 7th is Chinese Spring Festival, actually the day changes every year.
    I just wanna say happy Spring Festival~

     *     *           *      *
       HAPPY~           *

  128. nillp on February 4, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    ooh.. poor mike.. 😦 and i thought that u weren’t posting ’cause u were enjoying ur days-off.. :z

    i stayed really concerned with u when i saw the word ‘flu’.. and i’m still concern even after i read that now u feel better.. ~[little dramatic, i know]~ but i really am!

    i’d really like to see SOB live.. but i think that they’ll never come to brazil.. so, i’ll just have this chance when i go to US some years from now.. :

    anyway.. i’m saving money to buy their album.. ’cause here in brazil i can’t find their stuffs.. so, i have to import, and how i can’t have a job yet, i have to save money.. lol

    love ya ~ ♥


  129. Kam on February 4, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    Aw, that would have really sucked if you had to go to the ER. You’re just sitting there, chilling out and hallucinating, and fluish and someone comes up. ‘Can you sign my tourniquet?’

  130. murry on February 4, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    Oh man, everyone in my house has had the same flu since last week. Our couch is like a petri dish.

    Anyway, tell your boys to come to Oklahoma. They have a pretty impressive fan base out here, from what I can tell.

  131. Ezza on February 4, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    this is one of those times you resent being asthmatic….glad you got over the flu without a trip to the ER…..i got a flu last yr that made me take a week off school then it turned into a chest infection and almost bronchitis, by the time i got to the dr…….could lp please come to australia this year?

  132. karma_capella on February 4, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    hello mike. nice to see you’re feeling better. and please don’t scare us with your flu. styles of beyond? it’s really cool hip hop band. can you ask them to come to russia….? 😉 have a good health

  133. ShadowerLiltani on February 4, 2008 at 8:36 pm

    elhh….. I know how you feel dude… I really do… pats shoulder And I am glad you are feeling better. I had gastro-enteritis once, because one of my students breathed on me. Landed me square in the hospital, because of the stomach cramps that I had. It was kinda scary, cause I’ve never been in that much pain before. So, yeah, I’ve been there. Flu’s fucking suck. This is when instant ramen noodles will become your best friend 😀

    Anyways, glad to hear the news on SOB, I’ll check out their stuff when I get the chance. (Edit: Just heard Bleach, I know it’s an older song, but, the lyrics are very refreshing and remind me of old school, which is real rap.)

  134. kuiz_worldstar on February 4, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    god! i love SOB so so much! Second To None is awesome !!!! love the tour!

  135. CharlesShakespeare on February 4, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    Happy the Spring Festival Eve,Mike!

  136. CharlesShakespeare on February 4, 2008 at 7:50 pm

    Hope you feel better now,mike!

  137. kUmiKo on February 4, 2008 at 7:46 pm

    OMG!!!! you must have been toooooooo busy on tour. you need a little rest now before US tour.
    hope you feel better soon!!

    and i cant wait for seeing STYLE of BEYOND!!!
    it must turn out great!!!!!!

    take care of yourself.
    with tons of Love from your all fans including me.XOXO

  138. analoggirl on February 4, 2008 at 7:39 pm

    Hey Mike, sorry to hear that you’re so sick! (The last thing we need is another LP member rushed to the hospital. Then again, you could film another LPTV episode, complete with chest X-rays, but I digress…) Get lots of rest and get better soon. 🙂

    Conversely, I’m happy to hear that SoB has wrapped up that album. Sample clearances are a b!tch. (Just ask Timbaland – haha. Good luck with that, btw.) I’ll be looking out for the album when it drops. 🙂

  139. niaminor91 on February 4, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    awww… poor mike, nice to know your feeling better

  140. xLinkinParkFanx on February 4, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    Aww, hope you get better :] maybe next time, the update will be on Fort Minor. XDXDXD

  141. akitagirl on February 4, 2008 at 7:06 pm

  142. shan1105 on February 4, 2008 at 6:57 pm

    Oh I almost forgot. Happy Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras!

  143. ninguem on February 4, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    get well mike!!!
    aspirin+hot tea+good night(or day) of sleep=better
    do this and become better!!
    come from brazil!

  144. shan1105 on February 4, 2008 at 6:55 pm

    Hope you are feeling well, it has to be all the recycled air you were breathing in on your long flight home. Get plenty of rest and get welll soon. Drink greeen tea! Will Fort minor be coming out with something new after this LP tour? S.O.B. needs to come to cleveland house of blues. That would be a great venue.

  145. aaashley on February 4, 2008 at 6:47 pm

    Hmm.. maybe come up to Canada too? hah.
    Anyway, sorry to hear that you’re under the weather. Get lots of rest and take care of yourself!

  146. supremeo2 on February 4, 2008 at 6:46 pm

    Awwwwww! Hope you get better Mike! Take care of yourself and thanks for the SOB info!

  147. YourConscience on February 4, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    Oh no! Sorry to read that the flu reached you, but it’s good that you’re getting better. =) Maybe I’ll look into seeing SOB in LA… Thanks for letting us know about the shows. =) I look forward to seeing you and the guys in Sacramento next month. Take care hun.
