Linkin Park in Shanghai 2009

August 15, 2009


A good pic from the show in Shanghai last night. This was the same venue that hosted this year’s Olympic events. It was an amazing show, and a fantastic experience in China all-around. A big thanks to our Chinese fans and friends who helped make these shows a reality!

More good stuff:

    That is an epic guitar finish! I don’t even play guitar, but if you ever sold any of your painted guitars I would pay ALOT! XD (and if you painted a drum kit it would even better!)

  11. ShadowerLiltani on August 18, 2009 at 3:55 pm

    Your guitar matches your shirt. It looks really cool. Sounds like you had some good fun at the show.

  15. PinkSoldier on August 17, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    Hey Mike, thanks for the pictures links, i was looking all over the internet for pictures of the Shaghai concert and you’ve just made it easier. Tour looks absolutely amazing so far 🙂
    I’m from Peru and even tough i’m on the LPU i’m also on the official fan club there, the Bleeding Soldiers. A short time ago we made our own version of the New Divide video, and we’re really proud of how it came, we would love and appreciate if you take a little time to watch it, it’s really funny!

    here’s the link:

    I invite everyone here to watch it 🙂

  16. ninguem on August 17, 2009 at 4:44 pm

    hi mike, is nice to see you enjoying this tour, but i have one question, since 2002
    well, lp won 3 times one award from mtv brazil named “video music brazil” (with in the end, somewhere i belong and numb), the award for “best international act”, so i was wondering if you recieved the award and have this on in your collection, i hope you answer this
    bye and good “jet leg”

  17. Madlen on August 17, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    Cool pictures…honestly all of your shows are like…wow:DYou just have that great captivating energy:)Keep it up:D

  18. torch95 on August 17, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    Hey Mike
    What can i say, but you and your family at Linkin Park have made me a fan since day one. You can see that whether it be your music, and or art looks to be with passion. Even though i have not yet had the pleasure to see or attend any of your concerts whether it be because of funds or working. I will be in the house with my My Wife August 29th bright and early to see this show. Hopefully i get a chance to meet & greet, Thanks To You and the Rest of the “Linkin Park Familia”, for bringing great Music! See You then! And keep bringing passionate music!!

  19. DD on August 17, 2009 at 12:43 pm

    Hey!Mike!I’ve been to the show in macao, this is my first time to be in a concert, and this is the great day ever in my life, and i can’t sleep now because of you, really! Remember that you took a red ribbon and wore it which was threw by one fan while the guarder is stopping him, you know, this is really nice, that fan is much happier than you can image, look like he has won one million dollars! And please blame chester he ignored another red ribbon LOL. Anyway, at the end of the show, i saw a girl crying and said”The show is over, again.” You guys mean a lot to us, and your smile is so charming:)

  20. Sintia on August 17, 2009 at 11:11 am

    Thanks for the links Mike! Gr-8 pics & esp. video. I luvd how you did Petrified wdat rock 2 it. From wat I read Lyra’s comments there was a lazer?! I remember in 2001 wen ya’ll were in FT.Worth, TX & sum rude guys shot a flare gun @ thestage & went rite over Rob’s head and almost hit him! I thought for a minute youChester were bout to jump in & get thos guys but instead you kicked ’em out. Glad dat ya’ll decided to continue the show tho. Can’t wait till LP comes back to TEXAS!! Mike, I hope you, LP, & your families are doing good & are in good health. Get home safely. Hopefully chester wont find his red cape and try to be a super hero again & fly home.

  21. tsunv on August 17, 2009 at 7:29 am

  31. mikechan on August 16, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    hey mike,
    meeting chester and brad at the LPU m/g was awesome, althought I was slightly disapointed that i couldnt talk to you about glorious excess: dead. some how i doubt that chester told you about a crazy fan that was wearing your xanders to the LP concert. well i hope you guys enjoyed your day off in HK, i was there as well, sucks that i didnt bump into y’all. but you guys played awesome in shanghai, all my friends were really impressed with how kickass you guys played. also i quick question, where do i post my M/G experience? well good luck with the last couple shows and the art exibition. take care

  32. karolp on August 16, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    yeah.. I’m sure.. hey mike, just an ask: when will you play with Busta Rhymes again ? there’s a long time you don’t play together ! kisses from Brazil

  33. niabai20 on August 16, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    I never been to a linkin park concert before.

    And love you guy music so much.
    Mike and chester are my hero.
    I look up to you guys.
    Your biggest fan nia bailey.

  34. Kangaroo on August 16, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    I didn’t go to the concert, but i noticed that an idiot played laser pen while u guys were performing on stage. Other fans in China feel angry and we’re sorry for that.

    Great pic, Mike! Seriously, I saved it.=D What to say, but-WOW! I read the coments, seems that everyone is happy with the concert! And now I’m sad, because I know that you’ll never come to Serbia.:( Oh well, I’ll do my best to come in USA one day!:D

  40. VoiceInside on August 16, 2009 at 8:08 am

    When will you play and destroy a Hello Kitty Guitar again??? If you will ever do, don’t forget the Hello Kitty Shirt 😉

  41. Eddie on August 16, 2009 at 8:02 am

Also I just heard “Crawl Back In” at Myspace DBS page. I have to say… Chaz and DBS did a grear job!!!!! Keep rockin’ guys!!!! 🙂

  42. Maaark on August 16, 2009 at 7:43 am

    Hey Mike! What an amazing pic! Seriously, one of my favorite (and I have tons of LP pics). I’m glad you had fun in China. We’re still waiting for you in Brazil. It’s been so long since you were here. 2004, remember? 75,000 people? It was big, REALLY BIG! HA!

    Hope you have a great Sunday, take care man!

  43. leems on August 16, 2009 at 7:27 am

  44. Lvix on August 16, 2009 at 7:11 am

    Amazing pics,
    Hopefully, a show in Belgium can be reality to once:)


  45. ACDalgaard on August 16, 2009 at 7:02 am

    Good links, but what’s up with the ‘really’ you threw in during Petrified?

    Btw, I noticed you and Joe took pictures at the Ferropolis concert. You will post some of them, won’t you? (: It would be so cool.

  46. dianlucas on August 16, 2009 at 6:57 am

    I want to live in Europe, Asia or United States. Brazil and South America is not cool, I don’t like, because you guys…Oh, ok, ok. Congratulations China! Mike, I like you hear this song – – Is from a brazilian artist, called Toquinho (genius). This song talks about art, life, and the melody…just wonderful, the perfect song. Lyrics in english: – Please, tell to us and me what you think about. And sorry, my english is not good, I know. Please Mike!

  47. rockermeg on August 16, 2009 at 6:43 am

    Wow the Olympic stadium? Nicely done
    Looks like a great show, can’t wait to see you guys again 🙂

  48. Leconte on August 16, 2009 at 5:59 am

    Mike, congratulations on your success of the show in Shanghai! I can understand how excited LP fans are, because I myself went and see LP show in Japan last week.

  49. vivian on August 16, 2009 at 5:58 am

    Hey Mike!I was soooooooo excited last night:D
    the show was fantastic!! and please come to Xi’an,China next time!! 😀

    I love you Mike❤
    BTW,you are super hot!!;)

  50. phinoda on August 16, 2009 at 5:28 am

    hey Mike i went to the show last night and i sang along all the time and my throat’s ache..haha~
    i just felt that every thing was in hurry at the last night’s show..when you guys waved good-bye to us, we just can’t believe that it was over…you just said nothing when leaving and it made us feel abandoned…T_T you know,some of us have been saving money for monthes for the ticket…we were looking for Chaz or you jump into the crowd when you played ..just want you to know that chinese is not a nation conservative as you think and you CAN say or do something just like you do at shows in US~

  51. Chaps_LP on August 16, 2009 at 5:16 am

    Hi Mike,hopefully you’ll read this comment and see it. It’s about Live in Texas.

    I was searching a lot for this video on YouTube for I don’t know anymore how long ago was it. I found it once on YouTube with Numb,but then it was gone.

    Anyway,I was wondering,where can I find this video,that I’m giving link to you. Here it is:

    Thank you for amazing shows in Graz,Zurich,Stuttgart & Sonisphere UK!!!

    PS. Have you ever thought of making some music with Moby? I’m quite obsessed with him right now, listening to all his discography and..dunno, I really feel like you two could make fireworks!

  73. Curiosa on August 16, 2009 at 12:03 am

    Thanks 4 sharing Mike. 🙂 The 1st link has some gr8 nature shots & concert pics. Hey why was ur nickname The Cobra Holder on fmmb? We were trying 2 remember. lol So what’s Ryu & Cheap ben up 2 lately? Haven’t chated w/Cheap n a long time. Must b busy. btw there seems 2 b a boy on here who doesn’t know the diference between being knowledgable & dumbfuckery & u know whats realy funy? He says no 1 pays atention 2 me & yet he takes the time 2 coment 2 me so he obviously does. lmao 4 the last 4 yrs uv read my coments have u ever known me 2 care if people pay attention 2 me or 4 me 2 kiss ur ass? lol Oh & that my priorities rn’t straight cause I didn’t sign up here 2 try 2 hook up w/sum1? TC

  74. deadbyke on August 15, 2009 at 11:55 pm

    Mike!i didn’t go to the show,first of all…..i’m happy to hear that both LP and the fans have had a great time..also,i heard something unexpected happened that some one shine the laser on Chester’s face!i wonder if Chester cared about that or were he angry with that……the one who did it seemd to be stupid!and most of us fear that you guys might be angry about that,…..
    hope that LP will come back soon!

  75. spraypaintNinkpens on August 15, 2009 at 11:37 pm

    Is Rick Rubin going to shun your rapping on the next album too? I sure hope not. When I heard he was producing the next album, my first thought was why? The overwhelming consensus is Minutes to Midnight is the worst lp album to date. Just check the itunes ratings, metacritic reviews and the lpu polls. I sure hope another MTM is not on the way. You’re still my favorite band though I’m a little skeptical of what’s to come. Fm fans and old school lp fans miss you being featured as a rapper.

  76. ruru87 on August 15, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    great to hear you say that mike! last night’s show was fantastic!!! I was in the first line and just steps from the stage! can’t believe I could see you so close. it’s a pity I didn’t meet you at the M&G. hope you come back to shanghai soon. LOVE YOU!!!
