Linkin Park: Live in London

July 22, 2011

Rather than this accidentally coming off as a #humblebrag, I figure I should just tell you straight: I turned on iTunes tonight, and saw a link to our show at the Roundhouse in London.Β  Sometimes, when we do a show, I feel like it goes smoothly; other times, not so much.Β  The iTunes show was the former, and I’m glad it’s up online for free, for those of you who are interested.


…and BTW, if you haven’t heard about it yet, if you support Music For Relief HERE, you can get two tickets to a Linkin Park / B’z show at a secret location, to benefit children affected by Japan’s earthquake and tsunami.

    Hey Mike, I love the show. I’ve watched it at least 3 times. Thanks so much for the freebie!
    I think that LP is developing in an awsome way. Nobody could have predicted where you’d go, and I like what you’re doing. Artistic growth is the basis for all creativity, and you guys ooze it. Keep up the good work, and I’ll follow you anywhere except to Popdom.
    Thanks so much!

    This was rockin’ dude… Thanks so much for the share.

    I love the old stuff, the new stuff. Given the comment before mine, to each his own of course, but I appreciate When They Come for Me all the more. Love the progression to the music, lyrics… all of it. Can’t wait to hear #5.

    I love how you cannot edit your posts.

  4. spraypaintninkpens on August 5, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    The new stuff is just plain boring to listen to compare to your older tracks. Ballard after ballard. Wake us(your old fans)when you go back to your roots!

    It was a great show πŸ™‚ I only saw the live stream,would have loved to be there but…oh well maybe next year πŸ™‚

    Hey Mike! I created the β€œiridescent” artwork protest against the winner who cheated. You’re also an artist so I assume you wouldn’t like to be treated the way we were. We love you but we feel disgusted.!/event.php?eid=236422866376183

    Thanks for the link!!! πŸ˜€ I’m going to watch it when I get home! πŸ˜€

    Why has this show been cut down to half an hour when every other performer still has the full show showing….its utter pants 😦

  9. boger7lp on July 23, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    definitely not the same as before, regardless the style of the music changes

    This new concept is not bad but if it had Confucian thus already had established earlier

    and the voice of Chester as well and I hope noes someday rediscover

    it costs way too reach a high note and shortness of breath is really unfortunate

    what you see and hear is not judged and thanks to see the free concert was time to leave aside profits

    Hi Mike! iTunes Festival was really outstanding! Great setlist, awesome crowd and an incredible sound mixing! I really enjoyed Rolling in the Deep and Fallout-The Catalyst. I can’t watch the iTunes concerts outside the US, so I had to see all in youtube. Congrats and can’t wait for the secret show with B’z!!

  11. helazahg on July 23, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    You guys probably did the best show at the festival, no other artist performed as well as you guys. I cant believe i wasnt there, I watched the live stream, but i honestly wish i couldve been there in person.

  12. cincybmxlpfreak on July 23, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    You’re right. That was a slick show. Great job. πŸ™‚

  13. emzlp123 on July 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    I watched it as it was happening and it was amazing. The Adele cover was outstanding! I still want to know what happened at the beginning when you called Chester over lol
    Brill show!

  14. notunafraid on July 23, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    The band’s iTunes concert was fantastic, especially with you and Chester – you two were really at the top of your game, vocally.

  15. lapkoola on July 23, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Chester’s gone MAD during the Catalyst, it was insanely amazing!
    Indeed Mike, fantastic show.
    Hugs =)

    Linkin Park is just perfect! And I love it when you do something to help those in need *—*

  22. kite919 on July 23, 2011 at 6:32 am

    Hey Mike
    I know this may not be the best place to ask questions, but ive been a bandleader for 2 years now and i still stuck with the same question about rehearsals and i could really really use some sort of advice^^ i could open a topic on the LP page but its unlikely that you or one of the bandmembers would see it, so i try it with a comment on your blog πŸ™‚
    if you read this and are willing to answer my question, you can write me a message on my blog.

    thx nd greets “kite”

  23. coliinreiid on July 23, 2011 at 5:00 am

    Speaking of iTunes. Did you happen to purchase any of the new Apple products this year? Such as the Mac Book Air 2011 version?

  24. mikeecem on July 23, 2011 at 2:57 am

    ..awesome, your live shows are the best.. I really want to support music for relief, but i have no job, so i can’t do it.. 😦

  31. jershalp on July 22, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    Awesome πŸ™‚
    I have already seen the show n its kickass !!!

  32. dcl1982 on July 22, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! I can’t emphasize enough how wonderful “Rolling in the Deep” was. Listening to you rap and command the stage like you do? I WON’T even go there! And, yeah, you’re a little cutie…

  33. evooba on July 22, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    I loved the show…didn’t manage to be there but definitely rocked out while watching it via iTunes.

    As for the secret show, good luck with raising the money πŸ™‚ I hear you have a lot already!

  34. sweetpet66 on July 22, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    great show BUT: for the first couple of days the whole (+/-) show was online, now its “only” 30 mins… 😦

  35. BSBCANDY93 on July 22, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    i loved tha show, it was pure perfection… y’all killed it like no other….

    btw… trying to spread tha word best i can about y’all s secret show …what y’all do is so mind blowin’. to me y’all truly understand tha power music has on this world
    …much love and respect…

  36. marialoveslinkinpark on July 22, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    58 apps need to be updated xD that would probably take forever to update because I have 25 that need to be updated and I tried to update them but my laptop got so slow I turned it off, but then again my laptop is always slow. T.T Awesome show btw (:
    You should make an update for 8-bit Rebellion πŸ˜€

  37. betty108 on July 22, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    You should’ve made this whole post a humble brag, it would’ve been funnier and you would’ve definitely made it into @Humblebrag’s list for August.
    Anyways, I loved the show so it’s pointless to say that I’m glad it’s available for us to watch. πŸ™‚
    I might’ve LedOL a bit at the sight of Jersey Shore next to a Linkin Park ad, BTW.

  38. autumnoh12 on July 22, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Thank you for reading the comments on here! And possibly twitter, if you were paying attention to that also! I hope nothing bad comes of that:/

    But that iTunes performance was GREAT! I loved Rolling in the Deep. Better than the original! (;

  39. lpfmfan on July 22, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Glad you read the comments, Mike. lol. And fast!

    Btw EXCELLENT show at London! I wasn’t there in person but I was rocking out in my room watching it on my macbook, haha. :]

  40. guuuro on July 22, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Great show! πŸ™‚ I panicked when I saw my computer didn’t supported the live stream, but luckily I could borrow my dad’s iPhone πŸ™‚ I like to think it was my 3rd show in 2 1/2 weeks, even though it wasn’t πŸ˜‰

    Have you heard about what happened in Oslo and at UtΓΈya, Norway, yesterday? It was pretty scary, even though I’m 1 hour away from both places. A girl I know was shot, but she’s in the hospital with serious injuries now. They think the man has killed 80 people at UtΓΈya. Incredible :S

  41. adiek84 on July 22, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Hi Mike, I really love the itunes show. I’m glad it’s available for free! πŸ˜€

  42. kelly jean on July 22, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Great to know you really do read comments πŸ™‚ would love to buy the MSG show om DVD or iTunes. hear anything about that? I’m in it a few times haha

  43. kelly jean on July 22, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    hahahaha love it

  44. sodhipop on July 22, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    I said this as soon as I finished watching the live stream, but I’ll say it again.

    The iTunes festival show was, in my opinion, your best show since the release of Minutes To Midnight.

  45. argol8489 on July 22, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    I was also surprised to see this picture. The best online show they have had.

  46. autumnoh12 on July 22, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    Update your apps man πŸ˜›

  47. thepixelpod on July 22, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    hey mike i really enjoy the show!
