    Hey Mike! This is Michael Marsden. I hope you still read old comments. Thanks so much for posting this on your blog. It’s been like 8 months since I posted that video and boy was I surprised today when I finally logged back on to Vimeo and found that that video had blown up. I really appreciate it. I would love it if you would get back with me. I understand if you can’t. My e-mail is marsmj@hotmail.com. Thanks again for the great show!!! I loved it! Give the band my regards.

  3. K3vV on June 27, 2008 at 12:14 am

    YEEEAAAH!!!!!! MICHAEL!! WELCUM TO THE CLUB!!!!!! WWOOOHOOO!!!!

  4. mshinoda20PERU on June 26, 2008 at 12:17 pm

    Hey Mike. I never have been in one concert cause I live in Peru, and my unique oportunity was in trip to France, but this days you didnt have a concert. So, maybe I never have been in a concert, but I know (for a lot of videos in live of you) that your concert are amazing…I hope you to take a tour Latinoamerica (southamerica) is more near that Europa and Asia, and also here are a lot of fans. Well, I dont have some video talking about a concert, but I have a video where I tried that it will be the best video that promoting the new video “LOATR”. Now in my country appear that, Im really happy. so, I hope to like my video. see you.

    Aw, damn mike. I wish i could come, but i can’t make it. I live in vegas, but i’ll be in LA 10 days before your show >_< due to money problems, i can’t afford another trip. :< so sad that you’re so close and yet so far.

  6. murry on June 25, 2008 at 10:17 pm

    I was at the same show Michael went to, and I wholeheartedly agree with his assessment of the show. I don’t think anyone walked away disappointed that night. The girl I went with literally peed herself during the last encore.

  7. Princess_MuzikChik on June 25, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    I cant believe you havent noticed until now… ahaha
    You get new fans EVERYWHERE you go!
    Another example: The journalist critiquing your concert in Perth, Australia… became a fan… They werent even interested in going to the concert, but had to for work… and came out a fan. lol!
    And you’ve got such a broad range of fans, young, old, different ethinticities…. etc…
    Its cos you guyz are legends =]

  8. rockermeg on June 25, 2008 at 11:40 am

    You guys deserve every fan you get and more…you rock!

    Love the sculptures! So cool!

    Also,I’ve just downloaded Holly Brook’s ‘Like Blood Like Honey’….she is so good!Such an amazing singer! Anybody reading this check her out-it’s not exactly rock music but she is one of the best female vocalists out there without a doubt! (another is Hayley Williams of Paramore)

    Also Styles of Beyond are freakin amazing aswell! But I downloaded that a while ago…XD

    LotsOfLove,,

    Megnxx

    (ps-still waiting for news on our favourite lead guitarist!)

  9. zimminator on June 25, 2008 at 11:08 am

    MIKE YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND!!!!! ahh when i saw you for the first time in chicago last year, i almost peed my pants you guys throew on such an amazing show! and ya people that were around us were saying that they came for my chemical romance and stuff, but they said they become a lp lover in the end of the show. aw god im never gonna forget that, and how you said that you were actually intimidated by us when we demanded an encore! that was great, lol you guys were scared we were going to break something. thats why i want to see you again. i hope i do.

  10. Ksenya on June 25, 2008 at 7:14 am

    (part 2..)
    I’m really surprised how often you post: you’re a rockstar, but has time for this anyway. Respect.

    You guys rules, I wish you all the best & many more albums!
    (please, NEVER stop making music =D – with LP or Fort Minor, it doesn’t matter, both is… just phenomenal.)

  11. Ksenya on June 25, 2008 at 7:14 am

    Hi Mike.

    Tnx for the show in Austria, Graz (18th June), it was just f****ng GREAT!
    I was so happy because you played “A place for my head” – I love this song, it’s my favourite again. =) It probably wasn’t a big & important concert for you, but for us – was amazing! Fans went crazy when you came in the crowd!! =P
    Ps: I got a feeling you thought we don’t know what are you talking to us… Although they speak German & there were also fans from Slovenia & Croatia… – we all understand English, so we understood everything you said without any troubles. =)

    I like your blog (where do you find all this art stuff?!),

  12. nikkiann0100 on June 25, 2008 at 6:36 am

    wow he described that concert to a tee. Thats cool that you are still gaining new fans. Thats funny he says, “Chester if you ever see this, but you probably wont”..and he congratulates him for playing sick. Thats awesome that you came across this.

  13. Jhuryn on June 25, 2008 at 6:01 am

    “The drums were there the whole time! Who would have known???” So funny! Thanks for the review Michael! Hope to see you on the LPU message boards soon!

    Thanks agian Mike and LP for letting me introduce “Leave Out All The Rest” in the US on linkinpark.com! It’s such an honor!

  14. zahra on June 25, 2008 at 5:54 am

    I THINK ITS AWESOME’LY COOL ,GRAET BEZAR,AMAZING ,AND,,….that you seee your fans and care about them !

  15. snapscratch on June 25, 2008 at 5:21 am

    it really makes me wonder…
    does chaz saw this vid?
    i think he should…

  16. snapscratch on June 25, 2008 at 5:12 am

    amazing.

  17. ms_shock on June 25, 2008 at 4:56 am

    Hi Mike. I’ve got something for you…. Today I visited the art gallery and saw some pics…. There’re 5 pics, because I hadn’t got more free place in my telephone…. http://vkontakte.ru/photos.php?act=album&id=33710137&s=1
    If you see that, please write something…

  18. maria on June 25, 2008 at 4:52 am

    hey, Smarky, that’s interesting) Hope Mike will response on it) on my part I can say that such metaphors happen and once almost the same thing happened with me when I tried to buy a ticket for LP concert in Olimpic stadium in Moscow. Anyway such things happen even with my friends) So wait for Mike’s response)))

  19. maria on June 25, 2008 at 4:43 am

    hey, Mike)))))) This wood that comes from Bali, I suppose, haha, looks like a dark chocolate))) It’s rather tasty)haha))
    Gorgeous)), really))))))))))) that’s the thougth that came to me after examining (looking through the pictures) them carefuly)
    and are you all right? (strange question, it’s only Jule, 25 to ask you questions like that). hope to read something new here)

  20. Smarky on June 25, 2008 at 4:41 am

    Excuse me while I rant about Ticketmaster and getting tickets to see PR in the UK

    I ordered my tickets through the LPU presale via ticketmaster ( I don’t normally use them but it was presale!)

    I had heard nothing from them, I used there ticket tracker it said that my tickets were waiting for dispatch. Called them up Friday, found they where waiting to send tickets, I booked delivery for Tuesday, also got time off work to be at home.

  21. Smarky on June 25, 2008 at 4:40 am

    On Tuesday waited in. Nothing. Got text message saying tickets had been recalled. Called up ticketmaster, have to collect when gates open from box office (Not happy about this, I have booked hotel for day before so i can get up and queue really early, I always queue early, I was first into the 02 arena when you played there in Janurary).

    Called delivery company, they said driver could not find my house when tired to deliver tickets two weeks ago, I asked them why they not tell me or why they not try to deliver on Tuesday as promised, Response? They hung up on me, I called back, they denied they had even told me that and said I was lying.

  22. Smarky on June 25, 2008 at 4:40 am

    Tocketmaster say nothing they can do.

    So now i’m going to have to collect my tickets and NOT get into the golden circle and I’ve booked travel and hotel the day before to go and queue without a ticket and when i do go and get my ticket i’m going to have to rejoin the back of the queue.

    Nice way Ticketmaster treats your loyal fans eh? I may have to buy ANOTHER ticket of ebay just to ensure i can queue and get in early.

  23. CHEN_IL on June 25, 2008 at 4:27 am

    Linkin Park are the best!!:] and of course there are new fans.. there are people who didn’t hear about you i guess.. and young people who haven’t had the chance yet to hear you:] ohhhh come to ISRAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love u. and this art is very beautiful, looke like a lot of work. love u mike!:]

  24. maria on June 25, 2008 at 2:59 am

    It’s really impressive that your music is so tremendous) I remember Hybrid Theory music, and all other albums) and I’m still under the impression that Hybrid Theory (The songs Papercut, your rap there and Crawling) had made on me)))
    And of course MTM is a very sincere album) I still remember when I first listened to Valentine’s Day and Little Things Give You Away). They made me burst into tears))🙂 It was great) And What I’ve Done, is a very phylosophical song))))))))
    I consider it to be an impressionist song)🙂 So, Mike, good luck and have a nice day) hope to hear something from you here)

  25. Malwusia on June 25, 2008 at 2:52 am

    MIKE?CAN I HAVE A QUSTION?=] COULD YOU WRITE SOMETHING TO flexy0@buziaczek.pl ?? THIS MY BEST FIREND’S EMAIL AND SHE IS 18 IN SEPTEMBER SO I WANTED TO BRING HER SMILE AND YOU CAN HELP ME….SO I HOPE THAT YOU’LL FIND SOME TIME:D THANKSSSSS!! SMILE AT CHAZ FROM ME=]

  26. maria on June 25, 2008 at 2:49 am

    Hi Mike) One thing, an army of fans is really growing) and I really believe that it will grow more and more)
    As LP is shocking and chasing the truth, helping everyone to overcome the crisis of perception, or has saved somebody’s live, fans will always be with you and with LP). So I really consider that the army of fans will be as enormous as the world is)
    Our hearts and soul were impressed and purchased by the vehemence of your music) And about the art) It’s very interesting) I like wooden things))) they remind me some classic items)))))))))) and yeah, 10 years aren’t the point to be concerned)

  27. Fishgoingwest on June 25, 2008 at 1:36 am

    The group of fans is getting stronger and stronger,10 years is not the matter.
    I believe as you rock the world,more and more hearts will be conquered.

  28. skindesbous on June 25, 2008 at 1:24 am

    He’s not the only one who says that. After the show on Spain, everybody was like: hey, this is the best concert I’ve ever seen!
    I’ve been a fan since I was ten (now I’m 17). Now I look back in the past and see how Linkin Park has influenced me, and I just can say thank you. Your were my first and only favourite band, and you keep being. Now I play drums and study in an art school (waiting to study on the art college). Your’re one of the greatest bands ever. Thanks for sharing your music with us.
    The video that Yahali posted is interesting🙂

  29. ColorScheming on June 25, 2008 at 1:06 am

    By the way, THANK YOU FOR LETTING US MAKE LONGER COMMENTS!!! staying beneath the comment length was obnoxious i must admit.

  30. ColorScheming on June 25, 2008 at 1:06 am

    Damn im crazy jealous i have seen you guys live three times. all front row. you even took the letter out of my hand while you were on stage. And yet i still want to see you guys again. Your music inspires and touches so many people. You guys are absolutely incredible. I know the best thing about what you guys do is how you reach out to your fans, and the artists you work with such as styles of beyond are equally incredible. i have written to both tak and ryu and both have actually written back, i almost passed out. They are so nice and so down to earth. Keep doing what you do for all of us out here.

  31. Yahali on June 25, 2008 at 12:15 am

    please see this video… i hope that you heard about this soldier

  32. xclutchingmycure on June 24, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    it’s great that your band is still picking up fans – i know how amazing you all are after seeing both of your NZ shows late last year. keep up the good work!

    i have a completely unrelated question mr shinoda. why, in your opinion, do you think people buy macs? i bought a black macbook just over a month ago (and an iphone in march), and they are the greatest investments i’ve ever made. my friends think i’m a bit of an apple “fangirl”, but i disagree. what is your opinion? obviously you like apple, considering you own an iphone and a macbook pro as well, but how come you use apple / why do you not use a windows pc? it’d be really interesting to hear your perspective🙂

  33. AussiePrincess on June 24, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    Hey Mike! I’m 14 and I’ve been a hardcore fan of Linkin Park for just over 3 years now. I love your music so much, you have the ability to really get through to your audience and the lyrics are really inspiring. I saw you guys play on the 21st of October 07 at Sydney, I was in the mosh lol. Your show was the first ever concert I’d ever been to, and I must admit I was blown away. Lol it’s embarrassing now that I look back, but in the middle of Pushing Me Away I burst into tears because I couldn’t believe I was seeing you guys for real. It was awesome! I’d just like to thankyou for your music, and the impact that you guys have had on my life. I’m truly grateful. Thankyou so much.

  34. shan1105 on June 24, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    thta art is impressive. anyone reading this, including you mike, check out http://www.myspace.com/shiftyplay7879 to hear a little rap dissing soldier boy. also a few other raps on there that were written by a young kid. they are pretty good but i might be bias, he is my son. Mike you can appreciate the fact that he is 16 rapping about a lot of things he knows nothing about., i seen in an interview that you were once that kid.

  35. nillp on June 24, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    dude.. u guys deserve all the fans of the world! if u guys weren’t so amazing, u wouldn’t ‘win’ new fans every day..😀

    u can have sure that when my son born, u guys are going to win a new fan.. ha! lol

    anyway.

    amazing arts.. the 3rd one was my favorite..!

    have a great day; take care..

    love ya ~ mk’nil ♥

  36. Fianwien on June 24, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    Here’s a gift for you;

    Just watch this every time you feel upset or something like that. My best guess is David Lynch directed this video, otherwise.. i don’t even know what to say. Have fun.

    Love, D.

  37. asianotter on June 24, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    first: of course you are continuing to winning over more and more fans . . . every single time i have seen you live you have rocked it! i still remember my first time seeing LP live. i KNEW it was going to be amazing, but when i actually got see you guys play and do what you love doing, i was truly blown away . . . you surpassed any expectation i had and more! and for that i thank you and the rest of the guys!
    second: Jeremy Fish’s work is beautiful. the detail and craftmanship is amazing! he’s definitely one to watch. thanks for sharing.

  38. ShadowerLiltani on June 24, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    I think you are so sweet to that fan, if he ever finds this post he’s going to feel so lucky. The two paintings, in the frames, don’t really interest me much cause I’m kind of tired of skulls with wings. The frames are far more interesting than the pictures. (Maybe that’s the effect he was going for, but it doesn’t sit right with me.) Now, the sculptures are absolutely gorgeous and very traditional but somewhat contemporary too.

  39. Foreword09 on June 24, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    I can totally see where that kid is coming from. i remember the first time i saw you guys (st. louis, mo on the summer sanitarium tour) and i was just another kid who had heard you on the radio….i liked what i heard but i hadn’t bough any cds or anything…then i saw you guys and that was it, I was addicted! You guys are like a drug, haha! I’ve been to 5 shows so far (4 in the pit) and i’m going to 3 this year (in the pit for 2). It’s worth it though, even with gas prices….You guys ROCK!!!!!

  40. lp_fm_fan on June 24, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    Just wondering, is there any way you can extend the 700 character rule thing? Lots of people have multiple posts. Lol.

  41. Foreword09 on June 24, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    Hey Mike! Since you are on the topic of art, have you ever heard of Josh Heilaman? If not you should check him out at friskeemedia.com. It’s very unique and uses a lot of bright colors, which is pretty spiffy. He has some neat stuff, i like the akai samurai skate deck he did. it’s spiffy!🙂 Anywho, on the new fan note….

  42. beliss_shin on June 24, 2008 at 3:55 pm

    I wish that it was easy to obtain here a M&G, it can be impressive, if already it was to see the concert, even more to be able to know you… but if already it is complicated that LP comes to Spain, to obtain the M&G … impossible.
    I am charmed with Jeremy’s pieces
    muak!

  43. Lvix on June 24, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    part two:

    But yeah… it will be me alone, no Bsoren(thats his artist name) actually you gonna miss him, its gonna be great for you to meet him. Maybe it will happen in the hotel… I am in the hotel what belongs to the LTU Arena, very expensive wow…

    See ya

  44. Lvix on June 24, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    part one:

    Mike, i gonna see you again at a meet and greet…
    Its in dusseldorf, i told before here i na comment that i was going to that event…

    only stupid, there is only one meet and greet pass. I can’t take my best friend with me, he gonna be alone while i am talking to you lol. But he is a very great beatboxer, he is a little bit famous in Belgium. And he likes to perform on revolution as beatboxer… By the way, he likes Linkin Park… But rap music is his most part of his life… He likes your Fort Minor Album a lot!

  45. Tiberias on June 24, 2008 at 2:35 pm

    Brilliant music always has the power to attract new fans! Since I met you at the M&G in Munich I wonder if you got my present and liked it [I’m the girl who gave you the italian green sketchbook, the charcoal pencils and the Derwent pencils] and thanks for the art you posted🙂

  46. MissNatalie1984 on June 24, 2008 at 2:20 pm

    POST #2: i definitely understand where Micheal (your new fan) is coming from – having seen you guys in Melbourne, Australia twice (half price concert tixs on the last night was amazing! cheers for that!), like Michael, my best friend and i were buzzing for days about just how good the concerts were… and Chester, breaking his arm and all, was such a trooper to finish the show. LP definitely deserves like, a shrine, just on account of how well they treat their fans.

    thanks for posting Mike!

  47. MissNatalie1984 on June 24, 2008 at 2:20 pm

    POST #1: hey Mike, thanks for posting some of Jeremy fish’s work. it’s amazing. i’m always up for finding people who’s art is really interesting and not that of “the norm”, so i appreciate you posting his work.

    and you totally shouldn’t be surprised that you’re making new fans everyday. As corny as it sounds, LP’s music has the ability to reach out, and the fact that you guys put on ass kicking concerts i’m sure also helps to recruit the new fans😉

  48. lp_fm_fan on June 24, 2008 at 1:48 pm

    Post three: I even remember during ITE you, Mike, said to be louder and I screamed and everyone around me screamed way louder and you smiled at us, because we screamed way louder. It was so awesome. The next day I was so sore! But totally and completely worth it. I can’t wait to see y’all at PR! Watching this video has really made me all giddy on the inside again, as Michael explained it.

    -Ana

  49. lp_fm_fan on June 24, 2008 at 1:48 pm

    Post two: Even though Chester was sick! And my dad said (he’s not a LP fan at all ) but he said Chester really cared about his fans. When he should of canceled the show because he was sick, he didn’t and performed for us. That shows a lot of dedication. All and all, best show of my life. I was one of those screaming fans. Front stage!

  50. lp_fm_fan on June 24, 2008 at 1:47 pm

    Post one: Omg! That’s the show I went to! I came all the way from Houston, Texas. Yeah, 8 hours away! I thought that concert was the BEST ever! I really enjoyed it! Even though, Chester was sick he really honestly performed well. I was so excited. After the show my friend and I were freaking out. Seriously that was the best day of my life, and I’m not acting all fangirl-ish. My parents went to this show because I’m underage and can’t go by myself (almost 18 though!) they went and they said it was a reallllly great concert.

  51. Andizzle on June 24, 2008 at 1:08 pm

    Thats exactly how I felt the first time I saw LP in Germany, the second time in France and the third time in Ireland, which was just 2 days ago,

    The magic never goes away, I’m so psyched and happy. lol

  52. Madlen on June 24, 2008 at 12:34 pm

    someday when i see you guys live (oh please let it be sooner!) i’ll make a review too:Dand i’m kind of sad you didn’t answer my question so i’ll try again-is there an artist you really admire and would you work with him/her on some future pieces?i love this guys’s pieces…i really like the winter one..:D

  53. msgirl on June 24, 2008 at 11:34 am

    MIKE..i am crying now why?i am so jealous of him what do u think about ur fans who can’t see u?is it our fault?is it my fault?if u came here,i would see ur concert whatever happens.but THE FACT IS U DON’T.U DON’T..!!!what should i do to see u?huh what should i do to be like micheal and u will be glad?i don’t understand this,i know i am just a fan for u but i gave my heart to lp .now i am just living with beliefs of seeing u some day..maybe s’one will tell me that i will never see lp ,there is no need to live anymore. PLEASE GIVE SOME SUPPORT TO ME…how can i be lucky like micheal that u read my comment?…….jasmine.😥

  54. nadine on June 24, 2008 at 11:27 am

  55. merve on June 24, 2008 at 10:44 am

  56. Melk on June 24, 2008 at 10:06 am

  57. Melk on June 24, 2008 at 10:03 am

    And…For speak of your beautiful Dc shoes … Where are you going to sell these shoes ? I shall really like knowing it because it will be the first thing which I shall possess of you…after the CD of Fort Minor ! Thanks…

  58. Anstice on June 24, 2008 at 9:58 am

    The carving with the hands and city is completely amazing. It reminds me of Kingdom Hearts for some reason. 🙂

  59. GenMTL on June 24, 2008 at 9:17 am

    Of course, you have new fans!! I saw you in Montreal in Feburary and it was so amazing!! You guys have so much energy on stage and you’ve give it to us. I really enjoyed that show and now I’m a LP’s new fan. I’m not very good in English but your lyrics touch me and I upgrade my English because I’m reading this blog and the LP’s web site everyday!! That’s great;) See you in Quebec and I hope during the M&G!! I post you a small video, I hope you have never seen this before. I’m working in this kind of office and I want to do it a Friday afternoon!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVKnF26qFFM . Enjoy!!

  60. Xenith on June 24, 2008 at 9:07 am

    Amazing, Awesome, Pumped! lol

    He sounds like me after your Manchester show Mike… Can not wait for Milton Keynes!!!! Even though I’m in the hospital for a sleep deprivation test the very next day, you guys had better keep me up all night lol😀

    No doubt you will!🙂 I’m all giddy now – can not wait for Sunday!

  61. Xenith on June 24, 2008 at 8:45 am

    Some insanely beautiful work there Mike. I love the fact your keeping us all updated with various artists. Stupidly enough your blog inspires my creativity at work when all others fail – Hence I’m on here so bloody much! lol

    Grats to Jeremy🙂 wish I knew him so I could see his reaction hehe …Now back to re-designing this website for womens underwear :p

  62. Ilo on June 24, 2008 at 7:43 am

    There´s nothing more to say!!! Ilo

  63. SimplyMode on June 24, 2008 at 7:43 am

    Duuude, He had fun. FERSURE! xD
    && yerh of course you’re still making fans no doubt, you guys are amazing.
    I know i started “obsessing” over LP like summer of 2007. I know its pretty late forgive me (:
    Anyway I was like never into rock but i didn’t hate & then i heard “what I’ve done”. Can I just say i was blown awayyy!.

    you still make new fans cause your music is amazing!🙂 and michael is lucky, not just on the show but also got onto your blog😉 on jeremy’s work: interesting, especially the sculptures. i like the buildings very much. have a nice day🙂

  65. Sunnywow on June 24, 2008 at 7:22 am

    damned that michael guy is lucky! in fact, all the americans are lucky because they have more chance to go to your conerts than all the rest of the fans in the world. please please come to taiwan again soon! i’m a new fan too and i’ve never been to your concert.

    Oh and, I just wanted to let you know that today I took the best vote to an exam of editorial-layout (actually the best vote plus lode). The project I made was about you, I built a layout for a biography of you, with sections like childhood, maturity, music: linkin park, fort minor, collaborations, design: all of your paintings, your guitars, shoes and so on. I’m really proud of that work cause you really inspired me. Thanks < 3

  67. yun on June 24, 2008 at 6:54 am

    What a damn lucky guy u.ù Finishing up on Mike’s blog, huh, cool. There are millions of us who think you guys are amazing since years! I’ve been following you for 9 years and of course I won’t stop.
    Ohh I see that many italian guys commented here about HJF in Venice, well I shouldn’t be surprised: it was amazing. It was the third show in Italy but the first big one, great. I’m still sad and angry with those security-guys who didn’t give me back my banner, I cried in front of one of them asking him to find it. I really wanted to put it on my room’s wall..sigh ç.ç
    Anyway, Jeremy fish is a genius!

  68. Linkin_Giady on June 24, 2008 at 6:26 am

    Hey Mike! I thought you’d posted something about the Heineken Jammin’ Festival! But you haven’t done it! Why? Well anyway you must know that for me was a great evening … finally I could see you and it was the most beautiful day of my life … THANKS MIKE AND THANKS LP! COME BACK IN ITALY!

  70. analoggirl on June 24, 2008 at 5:08 am

    Holy crap, the work by Jeremy Fish is amazing! Props to the wood carver as well. Such incredible detail.

    It’s cool that you look for reviews by fans and critics alike. You’re not content to rest on your laurels and you keep trying to improve the “concert experience” for your fans. Props to you too. haha I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys have planned for Edgefest. – signed, a long time fangirl. 🙂

  71. Alexandra on June 24, 2008 at 4:27 am

    Jeremy Fish…never heard of him.. but he’s a man of his hands:)i lovethis kind of art.. ’cause its very hard work… and i can’t imagine how he did that! beautiful!

  72. EllePi on June 24, 2008 at 4:05 am

    Hello! Yes you always get new fans, everyday, at every show! I think on the stage you can’t see what happens in the concert hall. Really incredible! In your former show in Paris, there were a lot of young people with their parents (for example). In the beginning, the dad ahead me stay seated, he seems to be on the jump to leave the show. After 10 or 15 minutes, the dad sang like a crazy man, he took off his tee shirt. I think he had to steal his son’s linkin park cds. I swear, it’s awesome, your songs are federative.
    I love these arts, this mix of african sculpture and modern idea. Awesome. Thanks for the pictures mike, have a nice day. Caroline from France

  73. Alexandra on June 24, 2008 at 4:04 am

    thanks for making that day, the best day of my life..

  77. WaitingForMidnight on June 24, 2008 at 3:46 am

    Hey hey! I went to see you at ‘Rock In Rio’ show in Portugal, as always, you rocked! Your shows are completely awesome, but I think I must say that you could have done better in this one, like you did last year here in Portugal at ‘OeirasAlive’ festival.. The audience this year was great, I just don’t understand what was going on ’cause the set list you had played was indifferent and it seemed like you didn’t had much time to play it or something like that.
    Well, you’re having new fans every day that passes by, and It feels really great to know that you still have this kind of reaction to that😀 Congrats for everything and keep up that great work you’ve done until now (:

  78. Ekay on June 24, 2008 at 3:22 am

    and ofcourse you guys get new fans all the time, no question about it! i’m proud to say that i’ve been your fan for 8-9 years and also followed your art for many years.Keep up the good work! Your fans truly love and support you! to be continued:)❤

  79. Ekay on June 24, 2008 at 3:21 am

    That Jeremy dude does really interesting art works. The one with the umbrella and the legs is really nice. When will you Mike start expanding your amazing ideas into sculptures or other stuff? And by this I don’t mean that your paintings would’nt be enough! I’ve been really wanting to buy some of your stuff someday, it would really look nice on my new(:)) apartments wall! and I also collect dunny’s so the one that you once designed would be awesome to get! maybe the next time i visit US i’ll try to get some of your stuff🙂

  80. NeneLP88 on June 24, 2008 at 3:21 am

    Mhmm.. Mike? I really can’t understand why u feel surprised when u watch this sorta video. U shouldn’t be!!!

    U are great! Ur songs are wonderful! Ur live shows are awesome, they leave breathless! I’ve been to Venice the other day and I’m sure I will dream of that night for months and months (I should study, but I left my head in front of that stage XD)! And then u are closer to fans than any other band. U MAKE FANS LOVE YOU!

    What I mean is.. surfing the net u’ll find millions blogs with post about how much ppl love LP!! There are millions of Michael out there! =D

    And u say that LP has the best fans in the world.. That’s just cause u deserve it so bad! U should deserve even more =’D

  81. Reem on June 24, 2008 at 3:18 am

    Hello there Mike.Its cool that you still get new fans,like you said after 10 years(goodness,still as good as ever) that guy really did like you,why wouldn’t he,but its kinda funny:p,he got me all pumped up to see you guys live,not that i dont want to.I had an MRI today and you could choose to play a cd whilist having it,i chose LP for sure,meteora,got up to figure 0.9 and we finished,thank you for being with me,[not lituraly]your music gets me going in this place,thank you so much lp:) Jeremy fish?never heard of him but he is good as!thanks for sharing that,his work isnt bad at all,i should show off to my art teacher,hah.thanks for posting,have a wonderfull day.

  82. crystalrussianla on June 24, 2008 at 2:55 am

    hey he’s cool good stuff good stuff mike

  83. Shinodabestfriend on June 24, 2008 at 2:48 am

    So don’t be surprised if your fans rise to excess. I will continue, even just for the pleasure of talking about you. The hard work is ALWAYS rewarding, and you’ve worked so HARD. I only miss to go to your concert but I don’ t think I can ever.. too unfortunate. know that I will support you FOREVER! You’ll become a part of history. WORD OF FAN! and be sure that I don’t stop to talk about you!😉 KISS😀

  84. Shinodabestfriend on June 24, 2008 at 2:47 am

    Mike it’s normal that your band makes always new fans… you always give the best in your live performance and this is what people like! You’ve got great music and you love your fans soooo much… You probably don’t know one thing…. there are also fans like me (since I was 5) who talk so much of LP that the others want to know who you are.. I’m so proud to be your fan, that I can’t stop to talk about you. LP are loved by my family and I “converted” 4 of my classmates + my best friend and many other people..

  85. Kira on June 24, 2008 at 2:28 am

    If Jeremy Fish’s exhibit lasted another month, I’d have the chance to go see it.

  86. clara110 on June 24, 2008 at 2:27 am

    i think linkin park is already known for their great live shows… they just blow you away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!❤
    so keep up the great shows!!!!! xD

    and how’s Brad? i didn’t hear anything no more of him.. is he well again??

  87. ms_shock on June 24, 2008 at 1:57 am

    I don’t know what to say…. I’m depressived now, but your posts, your blog and these pics and video…. hmmm.. not bad, not bad…. sighes

  88. toikey on June 24, 2008 at 1:50 am

    I’d have to say that the ‘Hands’ piece would be my favourite.. I just love the little houses..

    I want one😦

  89. Sarah_xx_LP on June 24, 2008 at 1:43 am

    ahhh….i’m so jealous now. everyone who goes to an LP concert says it was the best night of their life. i want to go soooo bad but i live in a stupid country called the UAE where no one i actually CARE about comes to concert! (except for justin timberlake. he’s the only person i actually bothered to go to concert for.)😦 oh well. anyways, it’s amazing how ONE concert of yours can make a coheed fan become an LPU-er. whoo go linkin park, best band everr. 😉 i REALLY hope i can see you guys live one day! i’m pretty sure it would be the best night of my life too.

  90. YourConscience on June 24, 2008 at 1:30 am

    Haha… The video reminds me of a blog I worte about the show in Sacramento… Last stop of the US tour! Haha. =)

  91. shinoda_me on June 24, 2008 at 1:30 am

    neat job!!!!
    fuck! i sooooooo wanna see you guys live .. like NOW!!!
    turning a Coheed fan into an LPU-er .. wow ..!!
    nice pics!🙂

  92. MusicalMorphine on June 24, 2008 at 1:29 am

    Ah, that made me smile. I loved his enthusiasm! It’s really nice to see new fans like that, and I have to agree, I was at the second London show and the into was awesome because it builds up so much. I was feeling like shit physically before you guys came on but then it all went away and I didn’t want it to end.

    On the art, I can never imagine being able to carve wood in detail like that. Pretty nice.

  93. YourConscience on June 24, 2008 at 1:25 am

    Damn. I like the one with the hands… Amazing. =)

  94. Philly_Willy on June 24, 2008 at 1:20 am
