Concert Video: Linkin Park 2011 A Thousand Suns Tour
The 2011 A Thousand Suns tour, which the band showcased first to rave reviews and critical acclaim across Europe, is a wonder in multi-media brilliance with giant screens and a spectacular musical mix that combines some of Linkin Park's biggest hits from the past with offerings from the band's latest album on Warner Bros. Records, A Thousand Suns, which debuted at number one on Billboard's Top 200 upon its release in September, 2010.
The band has an additional gift for concert-goers as well, each show will be recorded live and a special text code for mobile phone users will be displayed at the venue allowing ticket purchasers to download a live recording of the show they've attended. It's just one more way that Linkin Park is showcasing the theme of this tour, and their latest album, which has been referred to as "the conflict between technology and humanity." On the humanity side, Linkin Park has founded the charity organization, Music For Relief, which works to provide relief to victims of natural disasters as well as raising awareness of the challenges and solutions surrounding the issue of global warming.Continued on the next page
