Back in the USA

November 16, 2010

After a six-hour delay in the Tel Aviv airport and a long flight, I’m finally home.  The last leg of the tour was awesome–a very memorable journey!  Some of our best shows in Europe, and our first trip to the United Arab Emirates and Israel.  Looking at the comments in the LinkinPark.com forum, a lot of people had an amazing time at the show.

We’ve finally announced that we’re going to be bringing the new show back home, to the U.S. and Canada.  Get your tickets now, before anyone else…

EDIT: By the way, THE PRODIGY will be opening on select dates.  The rest of the dates will be with PENDULUM and DOES IT OFFEND YOU, YEAH? Here’s the info:

    Well congrats America😀 I’m hoping to see you again in Europe next year…and btw good job on the supporting acts.

    Hey,
    Hey, Mike I think you’ll like the “Wretches And Kings” Video that I made:

    See you in CHICAGO!

  6. markdfarris on November 17, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    Sad Mike … how come you never come up to the San Francisco area anymore?

  7. malicetwrd0 on November 17, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Hey Mike!

    Welcome back to the states! Can’t wait to see you guys play again! First time was in March of 2004, second in July of 2007. I was disappointed in the lack of a date in the Pacific Northwest (I live in Sacramento), but alas! An excuse to pack up the car for a weekend in Vegas with my girlfriend! Vegas, baby!

    Looking forward to a great show.

    I’m starting to really really regret not having gotten tickets in time for when you stopped by in DK. Can’t we become a type 3 civilization already so that we can use black holes for traveling backwards in time??

  9. kayleighmaijala on November 17, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Can I just say that as a HUGE Pendulum fan I almost peed my pants seeing this.
    And then I proceeded to think of you guys as assholes, because you aren’t playing anywhere NEAR the Pacific Northwest.
    What do I have to do to get you guys to play Seattle? Vancouver, maybe? Portland, even?

    I’m throughly disappointed.

  10. Ilinca Milosan on November 17, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    See you in Toronto, Mike!😀
    Send my love to the rest of the band ^-^

  11. Alexandra Nofi on November 17, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    I’ve lived in CT for 23 of my 24 years of life, & when I saw “Uncasville”, my first reaction was: Where the f*ck is that and how the f*ck do I get there?” Oddly enough, it’s easier for me to take the train to NYC and go to the Madison Square Garden concert than drive to the other side of CT.

    BTW, since there’s a 4 day gap, I encourage you to make plans to take a stroll through New Haven. Lot’s of great places to eat & visit (www.infonewhaven.com). Just don’t wander around at night, or go to the Fair Haven section cause they’ll probably try to kill you. This city is like a mini-NYC so having a car is stupid.

    It’s a good way to celebrate your birthday!!!

  14. jagta on November 17, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    How about South East Asian tour?waaaaaa!!!…Hoping…hoping…hoping.

    BTW, I saw a pic of you in Israel that you’re holding a plastic that contains an Arabic Bread or something, but it really looks like arabic bread, so does it taste good?

  15. melmclaughlan on November 17, 2010 at 10:45 am

    It must be nice to be home with your family Mike. I wonder which shows stood out for you in Europe. (: Sleep. If I had the chance, I would sleep in an extra three hours every morning. ¬_¬

  16. takumademonreborn on November 17, 2010 at 10:08 am

    hey mike any chance of having an asian tour?

  17. abendsteern on November 17, 2010 at 8:54 am

    Hey!

    I’m happy to read that you’re back safe and sound. And it makes me even more happier to know that you guys enjoyed the shows as much as we fans have. Due to there was no show here in Sweden I had to get to England but I can’t complain, it turned out to be the best trip and concert experience I’ve ever experienced! After 10 years I finally had my dream come true. Thank you for all the music, the love and devotion you’ve given, your music has helped me through many rough paths.
    Enjoy your time off and give Australia the energy we were given in London!

    See you around!

  19. cctjehh on November 17, 2010 at 8:10 am

    I AM SO JEALOUS! I love the Prodigy AND DIOYY… ;O

    love you Mike !<3

  21. 3infinity on November 17, 2010 at 7:24 am

    Ahhhh when’s the next European tour, come to Croatia at least once, there’s a lot of people here who like yuo, I know I sound like any other random fan but i G’n’Rs, ACDC, Bob Dylan and Metallica could have done it in the last couple of years, so can you!

  22. penneysound on November 17, 2010 at 6:22 am

    i fail to see how toronto and montreal qualifies as “and canada”. at lease get som distribution going on. montreal, vancouver, calgary, halifax. not 2 cities right next to each other way down at the bottom.

  23. lode1989 on November 17, 2010 at 5:34 am

    Pendulum is my snd favorit band at the moment. (Linkin Park was always number 1) But my 2nd favorit always changes. Limp Bizkit, Evenescence, Within Temptation, 30 Seconds To Mars and now it is “Pendulum”. I think North America people are lucky!! Greetz, Lode

  24. lpyahali on November 17, 2010 at 3:39 am

    The show in ISRAEL was amazing!!! Just wanna say a BIG THANKS FOR THE BEST BAND EVER!!!🙂

    PS : it was really entertaining to see you with a yarmulke ..!!@#@!$@$^$^&(^3

    Hey Mike, I was at the Teal Aviv gig as well. Not in the pit cause I did not want to get crushed! the people there were insane!
    It was an amazing gig!!! and my first time at a gig in Israel!😀
    You guys were delayed due to the fog. I had to drive home and drove really slowly from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.. took me about 2 hours!
    Hope to see you guys here again!! Thank you!

  31. souneik on November 17, 2010 at 12:18 am

    Think anyone would buy my blood? I needs me some tickets…

  33. dorito82 on November 16, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Welcome Home! Six hour delay!? That’s insane! Anyway, I’m SO excited to be seeing you guys (well, the other five guys, since I’ve already met you twice) for the first time at Staples in February!!! Also, to find out that you guys got The Prodigy to join you…!! ok, that’s enough outta me today!

  34. evooba on November 16, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    Six hour delay and not sleeping the previous night from the constructions outside the hotel? That’s cruel! I’m glad you’re finally back🙂
    Thank you for touring around Europe and the UAE. I was in Cologne and had so much fun! The show in Abu Dhabi was great as my dad told me (he was there).
    So, I hope you can relax a bit now before the Australian run😉

  35. J on November 16, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    I saw you in London, it was brilliant, thank you! I wish I was in the States to see more, specially the dates with Prodigy!

  36. enjadreal on November 16, 2010 at 10:56 pm

  37. melbapinckney on November 16, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Hi, Mike welcome home :D! I’m sorry about your delay at the airport, but I’m glad you made it home safely. I’m glad you had fun on your international tour. I heard you and the rest of LP put on one heck of a show. Excellent :D!Now, I’m sooooo excited! In January 2011, you starting your US tour,:D YAY! I bought my ticket and this will be the first time I’ll see you live in concert. This will make up for the Summit, where I wasn’t able to go. I hope it all go well for me😀. Love You, Mike!!! LP is the best!!!

  38. miruckle on November 16, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Welcome home :D!! Hopefully I will be able to attend the MA show, but if not have a great tour and don’t forget to enjoy yourselves!!

  39. mohebj93 on November 16, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    Heyy guys I was wondering if you guys would ever come to Vancouver? I mean I know you’ve already got Toronto and Montreal down but why not come to west coast Canada?

  40. xoxoluvcoco on November 16, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Mike, are these just some of the tour dates or are there going to be anymore added? I hope that you can come out to Charlotte, NC or Raliegh, NC because I really want to go to one of your concerts and I don’t think that I will be able to go to any of the other tour dates scheduled. I’m keeping my fingers crossed…

  41. galina85 on November 16, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    We liked you so much in Israel, we created unfliable fog, just to make sure you stayed a while longer🙂
    It was the best show ever!

  42. chrislp03 on November 16, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Mike Why Does Seattle Washington always get left out of LP’s Tour Plans? you have some hardcore fans up here. you have played London like 4 times in the last years but Seattle once in 2007 i don’t get it.
