"Wie gehts Deutschland - We're excited to announce that we'll be headlining Rock am Ring and Rock im Park alongside Metallica, Kings of Leon, and Iron Maiden. Tickets for both festivals go on sale tomorrow, November 27th at 9AM CET (12:00AM PST) on www.eventim.de. See you in June.
Rock am Ring will take place June 5-8, while Rock im Park will be from June 6-9. This will be Linkin Park's fifth show at both festivals since 2001. As of right now, these two shows join Download on June 14 as the three shows announced so far for LP in Europe next summer. In a cool move by another band, Metallica has confirmed that they'll play one new song but let fans decide their 17 other songs in their setlists. Nice!
Right now it is unclear about Hybrid Theory being played in full at these shows, but with no announcement of it from the band, it seems unlikely. The Download-exclusive Hybrid Theory set might just happen one time, but we are hoping it's done elsewhere...
