Linkin Park and Blink 182 will team up for two stadium shows in July:
July 28 - Flushing, NY @ Citi Field (with WU TANG CLAN, MACHINE GUN KELLY)
July 30 - Hershey, PA @ Hershey Park Stadium (with MACHINE GUN KELLY)
Linkin Park also announced a tour to support the band’s seventh album, “One More Light,” which will kick off July 27th.
Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda spoke a while back about using technology to recreate the band's heavily produced studio sound in a live setting. "Although there is the technology in the setup of what we've got going on onstage — and I feel like it's very high-tech for a music set-up — we also feel like we have a great deal of responsibility to be a live band," he said. "So, you know, whereas we have the opportunity to put certain things in the computer or on a sampler and whatever, we're very careful about what we do put in the computer because we want to be playing everything, we want the crowd to see us performing the song."
