Linkin Park: “we're actuallyplanning to return... maybeearly next year”

Linkin Park haven’t been seen in Australia since December 2010, but it’s looking very likely that we’ll see them back on our shores early next year for Soundwave 2013.

Early last month the Triple M gang declared that Soundwave had “got” the band for the 2013 lineup and now the group’s leader Chester Bennington has confirmed that Linkin Park will be “announcing something pretty exciting [for Australia] in the upcoming weeks”.

During a Google+ Hangout session recorded last week (see below) Bennington was asked whether Linkin Park have any plans to return to Australia, and the singer revealed: “Yes we’re actually planning to return… maybe early next year. I’m pretty sure we’ll be announcing something pretty exciting in the upcoming weeks, if not a month or so. I can’t tell you what it is right now though.” Hmm… what ever could it be?

Since Linkin Park’s last visit the band has released the Living Things album, produced by longtime collaborator Rick Rubin and featuring the singles Burn It Down and Lost in the Echo.

My inner 14 year old vomits and my outer 18 year old slips in the puddle, hits his head, forgets how awful both of these bands are now and mistakenly buys a ticket.

yawn to blink 'n linkin, but I have a feeling there will be a couple of "other" 90s bands I want to see.

Shaping up to be the worst Soundwave yet

I can see them be billed below Blink. I'm guessing it'll go *mystery headliner*, Blink, Linkin, Offspring.

It would make more sense, with the split D to go with Offspring/Blink on the same stage and headliner/Linkin on the other main stage

"Did you say Abe Lincoln?"
"No, I said 'Hey, Blinkin'!"

i find it intensely hilarious that several of you claim to hate the band, yet have gone to the effort of clicking on/reading this article and taking the time to post a comment. lp put on an amazing live show and have demonstrated growth/maturity in their newer material. and this, coming from a fan of the band since the 'hybrid theory days'. wow!

oh, and not a chance should blink be above linkin park on the bill. album sales alone should guarantee that. having said that, this is an australian music festival and we often get things wrong :)

What type of logic is that? If people express their hatred of something they must secretly like it? I wouldn't join a Linkin Park fan forum to bitch about them (that would be silly and mean), but if I'm already a member of a site talking about them I'll probably make a comment. I assume you'll say "it's hilarious how you claim to dislike the logic applied in my post, but go to the effort of criticising it" or something like that.

Though to be honest, I'd watch Linkin Park for nostalgia's sake.



I agree with these two points.

So 2/3 things you've said I don't think are stupid, you're OK.

He's not okay. He looks like he beats up homosexuals for a living.

I don't judge people on their looks. I flip a coin to decide whether I'll like them or not.

The trick is to rate people on how attractive they think Daisy Lowe is.

You are the first to accuse others of being judgemental on people's looks and you come up with this.

You know what a thread about Linkin Park needs?

This has aged better than the band itself.
