LINKIN PARK PROJEKTS IMAGE OF SUCCESS
“It takes titanic theatrics to wow a crowd before the sun goes down, and Busta Rhymes’ set was adequately animated.
On “Scenario,” which dropped before many in the crowd were born, and through more recent cuts such as “Break Ya Neck,” Rhymes touched ladies without alienating guys. The man doesn’t just rap, he miraculously manipulates his mind, mouth and microphone.
Brooklyn’s The Bravery opened with its barroom anthem, “Believe,” and worked through the hilariously titled “Every Word From Your Mouth Is a Knife In My Ear.”
Ex-Soundgarden and Audioslave front man Chris Cornell followed with a strong hour of old and new material, from “Black Hole Sun” to songs off his upcoming third solo disc. Cornell’s cool Euro look and hard, angelic vocals still get girls gushing and guys envying – especially when Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington joined him for Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike.”
Aside from the obligatory light display and a colorful intro by the percussionist trio Street Drum Corps,Linkin Park came with no gimmicks – just a recognizable catalogue 10 times deeper than the band’s early critics would have ever imagined.
It’s hard to admit this, but watching Linkin Park tear up their set last night led to one conclusion: The California-born rap-rockers have evolved into everything a stadium band should be: anomalously audible, sincere and, most importantly, metaphysically connected to their maniacal fans.
Linkin Park, with Busta Rhymes, Chris Cornell, The Bravery and others. At the Comcast Center, Mansfield, last night.”
