Linkin Park "Living Things" World Tour - Live in Malaysia 2013

LINKIN PARK "LIVING THINGS" World Tour Live in Malaysia 2013
MONDAY, AUG 19, 2013 - 8:00PM - STADIUM NASIONAL, BUKIT JALIL

Tonight is the night! It's Linkin Park I'm talking about which I'm into their music too but, I guess, not fan enough to brave the crowd by going to the concert.

After nearly a decade of anticipation, LINKIN PARK returns to Malaysia to kick off their Living Things World Tour on August 19th at Stadium National, Bukit Jalil at 8:00pm which is tonight.

A friend, a true fan of Linkin Park, bought tickets way ahead to secure good seats to tonight's much-anticipated concert. He'll be at The Pit, the Yellow Zone behind the VIP Zone, tonight at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. You can refer to the Seat Plan below. The last concert was held at Merdeka Stadium, the one downtown near Chinatown and this friend said he bought a number of Linkin Park t-shirts at the venue.  I wonder what he'll be going home with this time around.

The award-winning, multi-platinum alternative rock band, LINKIN PARK is comprised of co-lead vocalist, Chester Bennington, drummer/percussionist, Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave 'Phoenix' Farrell, DJ and programmer Joe Hahn and Mike Shinoda, co-lead vocals, keyboards, guitar. The band has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, and is the biggest band on Facebook - with over 53 million fans and counting.


It's raining outside which is a good thing in a way as it's been hot and humid these past few weeks. Plus the rain helps to clear the smog that has snuck back in in some parts of the country, KL being one of the few. For Linkin Park and their fans at the concert, I hope the weather will be kind to them tonight.

UPDATE:
Linkin Park was worth the wait according to The Star..


KUALA LUMPUR: When a random person screams at the top of his lungs, it's annoying but when Linkin Park's Chester Bennington does it, it's music to our ears.

Bennington drowned the sound of the crowd at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil with his powerful vocals as he belted one hit song after another at a concert Monday night.

Bennington and his bandmates - rapper Mike Shinoda, drummer Rob Bourdon, bassist Dave Farrell, guitarist Brad Delson and turntablist Joe Hahn - entertained the crowd with several radio-friendly hits from the earlier days of their careers such as Numb, In The End and Papercut.

The band also included some songs from their latest album Living Things, and got the crowd going from the beginning of the set until the end.

Last night's concert also marked Linkin Park's final stop in the Living Things World Tour.

    1. SK, you may have a point there about the ticket prices and the concert being on a Monday, however, it can be a challenge filling seats in this huge stadium.
