I can’t believe this is my first time seeing a Linkin Park show, but it was. I grew up on the West Coast at the height of “Linkin Park-mania,” when Hybrid Theory was played almost in it’s entirety on the radio each week and skinny white kids were given another icon in a tank-top and bleached hair to emulate.
Aging and fashion sense a side, Linkin Park has not let up in the slightest. The Grand Stand is a very large stage, but LP filled it up and made you feel like they needed just a little more room (to break maybe?).
Linkin Park was the headliner for this show and drew the biggest crowd of all for their set. It was heavy, it was hard, it was Linkin Park, just as I remembered them!
