    Linkin Park will be following on from their three dates in South America with the European Tour, which kicks off today in Berlin at the 02 World!

    Tonight the band will start a leg that runs all the way up until November the 11th at their second UK, London date. The band will then play Abu Dhabi for the F1 Summit and conclude with Tel Aviv on November 15th. The band won't play again until December 3rd in Brisbane, where they kick off their Australian leg of the tour, which concludes on December 15th at their second Sydney show, respectively.

    The band will be looking to expand on the set-list they played in Argentina, Chile & Brazil which saw the debut of "When They Come For Me" & "The Messenger" as well as the "Numb" extended outro featuring "The Radiance". Will we see a new rotating setlist for this European leg? How about "Blackout", "Robot Boy" & "Burning In The Skies"? We've already heard Mike reference BitS on the recent performances of "Bleed It Out" as he sang the chorus during the bridge, will we get the full version on this tour?

    This tour promises to be exciting, with a stage design by A Thousand Suns artist Josh Vanover, and a continued emphasis on the effects of the stage show, every concert goer is in store for something great!

    Let us know if you're going! We would love to have your review of the show, photos, videos... anything you want to share! What do you want from the live European Tour? Who's excited?

    I think Burning in the Skies will be a must-play very soon, also because is not between the massive-effects songs that makes them so hard to do live. I'd have rather more doubts on Blackout, will see how it would turn out, specially the Chester's crazy remixed voice outro. From MTM In Pieces was always one of the most loved songs, and it was never or very rarely played live, am i wrong? I fear Blackout will be the same.

    In Pieces was played quite a few times- it was very rare. Not that they never played it.

    Me too! =]
    Robot Boy is in my top 3 ATS tracks! I hope they play that too!! =D

    Well Blackout has alot of sampled vocals that might be hard to re-create live. In Pieces is definently one of the most underrated songs on MTM though, and I was dissapointed they didnt play it live as much. I watched a video of Linkin Park performing In Pieces and it just didnt sound as good as the recording, I think some songs just arent meant to be played live.

    I'm sure they can find ways to make it work live. Before, they were operating under the context of a rock band, and that's what we were expecting. I'm hoping for a break of form and finding ways to perform songs to the fullest artistically without being restrict to the rock band format.

    I think I would like The Catalyst be played near the end of the set,
    and I really wish they aren't dropping Pushing Me Away (piano), that was just so cool!

    I would have thought that with the album being out for over a month, 15 people would have already taken the song titles as names lol. Lucked out.

    Now, back to business:
    Burning in the Skies live would be an absolute delight :awesome:

    I concur with the majority in not seeing Blackout performed live, at least not anytime soon - the setlist has definitely gotten bigger and does anyone really expect not just Chester, but ANY singer, to sing like 10 songs, scream your brains out in Blackout, and then sing another 12 - 13 songs and NOT start coughing up blood or something crazy? That's definitely over exaggerating it, but ... yeah.

    I find it funny that most people don't like Robot Boy (I'm not one of them), yet many people want to see it played live. Can hearing a song live possibly make you suddenly like it? Don't know about anyone else, but if I don't like it, I just don't like it lol.

    What I want to see live is Wretches & Kings ... withOUT Chester messing up :lgh:

    I would love to see Blackbirds or Pretend to Be live but I have a sense that it's not going to happen lol.

    Blackbirds live would be pretty cool - without Mike's random(?) intro thing.

    Pretend To Be is badass, and I love it, but playing it live when you've got stuff like When They Come For Me, Wretches & Kings, and Waiting for the End in the setlist, Pretend To Be would be like ... a downgrade, for lack of a better word. Just my opinion.

    My one of the favorite one is "The Iridescent" but I don't know how does it sound in live. Of course "The Blackout" and "Wretches and Kings" are quite powerful.
